Reader’s photos

We’re now accepting photos that aren’t of wildlife, but simply specimens of good photography (note emphasis on “good”). If you have some nice photos, send them in, though of course they will be vetted.

Today’s photos, which feature light, come from reader Dave, and I’ve indented his captions. Dave’s website is here.

My primary subject-matter is the manipulation of light; or, rather, to reveal reality as it exists in concurrence with our common experience. The photographs aim to illustrate Nature’s inherent movements by extracting expressions in static, aesthetic forms.

    These are great! Very artistic. Your other photos of animals and plants are also exceptionally well considered.

    Excellent! Although the color palette for the one titled From a Utah Mountainside perplexes me. I expected ochre. Was it taken in a forest?

    Thank you, everyone.

    And the trees were on the way up to Snowbird. Cottony clouds riddled the sky and pockets of sunlight pulsed the landscape. So the greens happened to dominate the narrow area photographed.

    Berries are wildlife, at least until something eats them!

    Thank you for sharing these with us Dave. Appreciated your individualistic approach to capturing light and storing it in an image for others to enjoy.

    Also went into your website and enjoyed looking at the other images and your various notes and captions.
