“Beauty without virtue is like a rose without scent.”



Explored and framed this beauty when I went for a brisk walk around the lake in the morning. Place: Burnham-on-sea, Somerset, UK.

Sometimes beauty needs to be simplified... just so it can be appreciated.

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.

“The most refined skills of color printing, the intricate techniques of wide-angle photography, provide us pictures of trivia bigger and more real than life. We forget that we see trivia and notice only that the reproduction is so good. Man fulfils his dream and by photographic magic produces a precise image of the Grand Canyon. The result is not that he adores nature or beauty the more. Instead he adores his camera -- and himself.”

~Daniel J. Boorstin

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” - Ashley Smith

Beauty of the Sea of Italy





How can such beauty be

Nature’s paint box of shades

From the sky rainbow

Washed with golden lights


Hiding under branches

Nature’s paint box of shades

And soft grey colours

Washed with silver lights


Only death will end them

Both will die together

Unable to live alone

Washed with golden lights


How can such beauty be

Nature’s paint box of shades

From the sky rainbow

Washed with golden lights

Pair of Mandarin Ducks.

The Mandarin Duck was introduced from the Far East, where it can still be found in China, Japan, Korea and parts of Russia. Mandarin Ducks are actually quite shy birds, often hiding beneath overhanging willows and usually only forming small flocks .They are nervous of other ducks –and are bullied by them .

A beautiful, unmistakable duck, male Mandarins have elaborate plumage with orange plumes on their cheeks, orange 'sails' on their back and pale orange sides. The female of this little duck is dull in comparison, with a grey head, brown back and white eye-stripe.

Introduced from China and now found mainly in South East England but also in the rest of England, Wales and Scotland .

Hundreds of bald eagles gather here November to January to dine on spawned kokanee. Here's where I've captured most of my eagle images. Fun.


Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

Thank you for you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I'll catch up with you over the weekend!


A new piece from a breezy, beautiful shoot with @foxorz, wearing a beautiful creation by @squirrelvscoyote.


I've been thinking about the topic of beauty for the sake of beauty in relation to art. I think, in my desire to grow as an artist, I had been rejecting works of mine that weren't pushing the envelope "enough," existing in a space of merely being pleasing to the eye. But what I've been realizing lately is that beauty for the sake of itself has a place in the art world, and in the world at large. Something beautiful can lift someone's spirits--can remind someone that life is indeed worth living. For me, that's reason aplenty to make something beautiful.


And even in those "simple" pieces that seem to not have much of a message, they are helping me to become a better artist. In the process of making each piece, I am growing--I am learning what works and what doesn't. In the simpler pieces, I may feel emboldened to try a risky technique, or simply to further hone the tools in my tool pouch. My technique is expanding, even when it feels like it isn't. The ability to create freely, without judgement, and to allow myself to *play* is deeply important to me as a person and an artist. When I stifle myself because the work isn't "enough," I hinder my growth.


I didn't realize it until very recently, but when I cut myself off at the pass, I'm adopting a toxic attitude toward myself that is not serving my highest self in the slightest. Mostly what I didn't realize was that my harsh internal criticism was hurting--not helping. I'm the sort of person who believes that I should always be pushing to grow, but that growth can't always come from a place of such harshness. A place that lacks freedom of movement and *play*. The critique must be balanced. Critique is important, YES! But balance is equally as important, on either end of the spectrum.


We never know why someone has created what they chose to create, and social media can muffle and confuse things further. But the fact that people *are* creating, whatever they choose to make, well, that, to me, is making the world a better place. I don't have to like what everyone is making, and I don't always have to like what I've made, either. But artists have a responsibility to themselves and the world to *keep going* no matter what. If we can inspire one another and be inspired, the growth will come, and the art already matters and is already doing its job!


Thank you for flexing my brain on this topic and chatting with me at length about it, @reddwalitzki, @adricknight, @karilise, @casstronaut. Love you all.

It was only through breaking that the inner beauty of this banded tulip shell was revealed. Notice the spiraled spine inside and the circling bands of color on the outside.

Inspired title from the beauty that is Infinity Bridge in Stockton on Tees.

Made Explore #26 27th October 2012.


"Infinity (symbol: ∞) refers to something without any limit, and is a concept relevant in a number of fields, predominantly mathematics and physics.


The English word infinity derives from Latin infinitas, which can be translated as "unboundedness", itself derived from the Greek word apeiros, meaning "endless."

This is an earlier image just when I'd tried out every composition this side of the bridge! I was planning on going back over to where I had started from to try more compositions but as you saw yesterday, I started making some images from on the bridge and then the heavens opened up!


I created this image with three filters on, my favourite two the KOOD ND4, a Lee 0.9 Hard Grad but this time added a Lee 0.6 Soft Grad. I love the feel they give to the image, almost a steely blue with my eyes!

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature."

- Anne Frank
