Soulmates

Fine Art Landscapes

My first blog post it should be fitting to start with fine art landscapes so I’ve chosen the Soulmates story to tell you,you can now buy my images online securely through pay pal.
On seeing this image I am given the true meaning of destiny. The two trees in this image, dwarfed by the oncoming storm and lit by a single ray of light, entangled and entwined around each other as lovers, moulded into the perfect aesthetic shape by the prevailing winds. What where the chances that two seeds would come so close to each other on this barren hill then grow and survive then die together.
They are truly Soul Mates.
I first shot this subject in winter waiting for hours for a ray of light that never came. On an Erie, stormy summer’s day, my assistant, Brett Gibson, and I took the two-hour journey to this location in anticipation of this shot. After the camera setup, we chased at least seventy cattle from the shot area. Brett and I then waited hours for the single ray of light. When it came, I had roughly 90 seconds to expose six sheets of 5×4 film.
