Behind Closed Doors
A fascinating variety of earth tones and textures, this is two large rocks found in the swirling patterns of a zen rock garden after a brief rain shower.
This is a study in the various shades of white and yellow found in the still wet petals of a Water Lilly.
The peaceful serenity of a waterfall and reflection pool. The various shades of green and the contrasting stonework provides a bridge between the various elements of nature.
A study in the various pinks and vanilla whites found in the petal of a Water Lily. The contrast of the flower petals with the darkened green and blue background provides a striking image
A further study in the various pinks and vanilla whites found in the petal of a Water Lily.
The inspiration for this piece was the image of a turtle’s head and shell breaking the surface of the ground reaching for the sky.
A large Blue Heron fishing from a rocky perch on a waterfall. The coloring of the bird provided a beautiful example of natural camouflage. He was very hard to discern from the rocks behind him until he actually moved.
Rounding the bend in the garden path you can see a clearing up ahead. The trees and
A picture from deep within the shadows unto a small waterfall and stone bridge. The single stone lantern stands sentinel for the passerby.
This little squirrel was caught trying to use the garden wall as a expressway to the other side of the garden. A brave little rodent indeed, considering there is no where for him to run if a hawk should fly by.
This is a interesting perspective of the weathered shingles found on a garden wall. The cracked and graying wood highlights the classic lines of the wood grain and the grooves and unevenness of the shingles themselves.
Rocks and Roots
A tranquil scene where the trees bath the tea house in a light shade. The lines of the stone fence, railing of the tea house and the roof provides a unique optical illusion in which no single line appears to be totally straight. A reminder that lines in nature find perfection in not being perfect.
A continued study in the various pinks and vanilla whites found in the petal of a Water Lily. The flower petals of the newly blossomed Lillie present a stark contrast to the darkened background. The water droplets enhance the scene with a feeling of newness and a reminder that new life is constantly beginning.
The continued study in the reds and cream whites found in the petal of Water Lilies. The red flower petals of the Lilly present a stark contrast to the darkened background. The white and cream colored hues of the lilies themselves provide a brilliant colorful effect.
The cool waters of a reflection pool gives this picture a calming atmosphere. The darkening shadows of the trees and the bright reflection of the sky on the water five a great lighting effect. You can almost hear the waterfall in the distance.
An unusual reflective shot of the tree canopy as seen in a small rain puddle. The sun shining thru the rain clouds provides a colorful perspective of looking up, while looking at the ground.
This daring squirrel decided to perch himself on a fence post. He was watching to see why I was intruding into his little paradise.
This lonely stone lantern was ready to light the small path from the gatehouse into the darker shaded bamboo trees.
The morning dew completely captivates this image of color and beauty as a lonely little red bug attempts to transverse from the mundane to the sacred.
The uniqueness of this shot not only highlights the orange Koi fish kissing the duck’s head but provides a unique illusion. The eyes of the duck will seemingly follow you no matter how you view the picture.
This large floating turtle was completely oblivious to anything that was happening around him. Like the monster of cinema legend, this big guy appeared to be a tough turtle who had seen many years of extreme garden living.
A turtle out for his morning swim. The reflections of the clouds in the water give the turtle a halo effect, while he appears to have two heads.
The early bud of a Magnolia Flower. Two of the soon to be stark white petals are growing form the underside of the bud. The bud represents a expectation of the birth of life.
