The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone. Orison Swett Marden

This is from a series I took with my nifty fifty last spring. I just loved how the painterly the bokeh turned out -- this blur is SOOC, no textures or anything like that applied. I just messed with the curves.

Large on black is worth the click, IMO.

The hidden harmony is better than the obvious.

This image preceded the "Winter - Mother Nature" series, but posted later

 

"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;

And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;

No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,

And willow stems grow daily red and bright.

These are days when ancients held a rite

Of expiation for the old year's ill,

And prayer to purify the new year's will."

- Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

When I take a photograph it's all about what my eye is drawn to when I look at a scene. In the mountains I can't help but stare in wonder at the strange aesthetic land where landscape and clouds intermingle. If I were standing above that ridgeline, I would of course think I was surrounded by fog. Some distance from the mountain, it is clear that a large cloud is pouring over the hillside, like custard over a christmas pudding.

 

It's a little like the first time I flew in a plane as a small child and was amazed to discover that planes could fly, not only through clouds, but above them too! Before this I hadn't known that clouds had tops to them as well. I'd thought they went all the way up - although I'm not sure where I thought they stopped. When they started bumping into the moon, perhaps?

 

I often wonder if children raised among these hills express such surprise that clouds and fog are one and the same. To me, fog was a just one kind of weather on a particular kind of day - and no more related to those things in the sky than a puddle is to the rain. To children growing up on the sides of mountains though, it must always always be self evident that a foggy day is just a very cloudy day…

A morning perch is disturbed! And now he's irritated at me (I point my tail feathers in your general direction). I blew out the wing a little, sorry)

D800 + 14-24 f/2.8, 14mm, ISO 200, 30 sec @ f/9. Really windy.. hard to keep camera perfectly still but turned out ok. Did not use long exp NR, hence a little noise in the sky. Tough to double exposure time to do this in the wind.
