Entry Description

These images were part of a 3 day exploration into Death Valley. While there it rained and thunder stormed for the better part of the trip. While expecting to photograph the high contrast highly textured morning light, I discovered instead I would have to challenge myself to rethink the light and personal expectations. Instead I found subtle yet definite shapes and forms, softly illuminated by soft light. These images , in a subtle way begin to take on the shape of the human form.

About Photographer

For nearly 30 years now, Jackâs passion for photography and been focused on his love for the landscape and our natural environment. Searching for the âLure of Lightâ has taken Jack to many remote and unique places as well as enhances his ability to develop âthe art of seeingâ through both Grande landscape and detailed still life As I continued to reach out, explore and reflect within the serenity of nature, I started to see and feel. Rushing streams soon became the ambient noise affecting calm. Landscape grandeur created the sense of humility. Spring blossoms invigorated, fall colors realized finish and fresh winter snow renewed. Chasing the light of these days is akin to chasing a dream. Sometimes dreams do come true.
