The tree which moves some to tears of joy....

Is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.

 

Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity....

Some scarce see Nature at all.

But to the eyes of the man of imagination

Nature is Imagination itself.

In the race between Man vs. Horse, I'll let you decide who won..!

 

This is one of those lucky shots... it was taken about 1/2 hour after the previous image that I posted. We were returning back from our "adventure" and I saw this guy jog past me. And, right behind him was the policeman on his horse, and it felt like he wanted to race with this guy... and fortunately, I still had my camera in my hand so took a quick couple of shots...

 

After taking the shot, I felt like the officer really wanted to race with this guy.. he would let him get ahead and then get his horse to run faster to take over and so on...

 

Anyhow, it is an interesting shot, and thought of posting it. I know there are a lot of technical issue with it, the light not being perfect and the sharpness is not all great and so on...

 

Hope you guys enjoy it..

 

As always, constructive criticism is always welcome.

'Still' - The Man of Steel on Loch Earn

  

By artist Rob Mulholland, commissioned by The Four Seasons hotel, St Fillans on Loch Earn.

  

A bit of a dull and drizzly day on Loch Earn, which limited my choices a little, but decided to go for a long exposure with the aid of my fleece draped over my head and camera keeping the filters dry. On the composition side I was in two minds, I knew I didn't want the jetty in shot so just had to decide was I going to have the sculpture in the middle of the open part of the Loch between the distant hills, or to have it balanced between the two nearest areas of land..I chose the latter.

  

I can imagine this being another mecca for photographers, especially for sunset.

The background is a view of the Ohaaki Power Station. It shows the 105 m high natural draft cooling tower, the only one of its kind in New Zealand.

 

The Ohaaki geothermal power station was commissioned in 1989. Production wells at Ohaaki are, on average, 1.2 km deep and reach water at temperatures up to 280°C.

Man O' War cove, West Lulworth on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. Taken at sunrise. Apparently the official name of the cove is actually St Oswald's Bay so I'm not sure where the Man O' War name comes from.

 

Before I'd taken my first shot I knocked over the tripod and snapped off the 'clip' on the filter holder I'd just attached to the lens. So nearly every photo I took that morning, and the rest of my week in Dorset, involved having to hold the filter holder or filter flush against the lens. A little tricky for long exposures like this, and not exactly conducive to optimal sharpness.

 

I was pretty annoyed with myself but also thankful the lens, camera and attached filter all survived the fall - it could've been worse.

Nature is man's teacher. She unfolds her treasures to his search, unseals his eye, illumes his mind, and purifies his heart; an influence breathes from all the sights and sounds of her existence.

A fine Autumn day by the little river Bela..

 

I was struck by the sense of scale, how small the man appeared in comparison to the tree, and how small the tree seemed when compared to the expanse of sky.

Man on Ice

 

They know he would come.

 

A cold day in January

The daily life is full of secrets... Feeding ducks can be a very mysterious thing. At least on a day like today…

What kind of day is today for you?

Welche Geschichte könnte ich dir zu diesem Bild erzählen?

Die Geschichte vom Mann, der täglich die Enten fütterte.

Er ging an den See, obwohl man ihn gewarnt hatte. Er könne die Enten im Winter nicht im Stich lassen, habe er als letzten Satz gesagt und gelacht. Niemand weiß, warum er so laut und vor allem so andauernd gelacht hat. Jedenfalls zuckten alle von mir Befragten die Schulter. Und dann hat mir sein Sohn dieses Bild gezeigt. Er habe es gegen Ende Januar gemacht, es sei das letzte Bild von ihm überhaupt. Es zeige, dass er ein waghalsiger Typ sei und gleichzeitig herzensgut.

„Ich kenne den See“, hat er immer gesagt. „Schon als Kind bin ich auf ihm Schlittschuh gelaufen. Bis ich heiratete. Meine Frau hat Angst. Sie hat auch heute noch Angst und will mir verbieten auf das Eis zu gehen. Dabei kenne ich es wie meine Westentasche.“

Ich frage mich, ob es eine Trotzreaktion von ihm war. Vielleicht wollte er seiner Frau Paroli bieten und sich schließlich doch noch aus dem Bann ihrer Angst, die sie über ihn legte, zu befreien. Offensichtlich hat er erkannt, dass sie ihn mit ihrer Ängstlichkeit dominierte, indem sie ihm verbot, das Eis zu betreten wenn er die Enten fütterte.

„Wenn ich dabei war“, sagte seine Frau, „hat er das Eis nicht betreten. Aber unser Sohn hat es mir immer erzählt, wenn sie zu zweit die Runde um den See machten. Ich habe nie etwas gesagt, aber ich weiß, dass er es immer tat, wenn ich nicht dabei war. Und in den letzten Wochen ging er immer häufiger allein. Er richtete es sich so ein. Er ging los, wenn ich eine Waschmaschine laufen hatte, oder wenn meine Schwester anrief. Es ist mir nicht einmal aufgefallen. Erst als ich darüber grübelte, wie das alles passiert ist.“

Nun, ich frage mich an dieser Stelle, was denn nun wirklich passiert ist, denn ich kenne den Fortgang der Geschichte nicht. Ich möchte sie der Phantasie des Betrachters des Bildes überlassen. Worum geht es in dieser Geschichte und wie geht sie aus… ?

Located in the former Cambrian Mills, the National Wool Museum in Wales, shows the early mechanization of weaving woolen textiles. I found the combination of natural fiber & man made machinery to be quite fascinating.

You never know who you are going to meet on the way back from the pub.People ,would never believe me,luckily I had my camera. Four smiley men sitting on a wall,with hearts of gold,waiting for the next bus to the "Magical Land of Oz"

I went to shoot a friend's concert the day before Thanksgiving and as we were packing up his car after the show this amazing shot presented itself.

 

It was foggy and misty and he was dramatically backlit as he turned the corner to come to the car with his guitars. I'll be posting a bunch of shots from this location.

 

This is the first...

 

This is the second.

Parsifal returning to the Grail

 

The Prophet

The Alchemist

The Wise Man

I don’t know who and what he is

But I see these aspects in him

My projection…

But one thing I can say

Our eyes met for a second

And I felt: he is in the flow

Children are in the flow as well

And those who meditate quite often

It’s a certain state of consciousness

The flow – the holy flow…

Richard Wagner’s Oper Parsifal

Als Nichtiger kehrt er heim, als Mensch, der keine Rolle mehr spielt, sondern nur noch der ist, der er ist.

Ein Pilger, ein Nomade, ein Heimatloser aber auch ein Freier.

Als Parsifal in das heilige Gralsgebiet zurückkehrt, weiß er, dass er nichts ist.

Als Niemand – doch zum Unterschied seines ersten Aufenthaltes im Gralsgebiet als Jugendlicher – als durch seinen Gang durch Zeit und Raum wissend gewordener Mensch, als Weiser kehrt er ins Gralsgebiet zurück.

 

Als ich diesen Mann sah und fotografierte dachte ich sofort an Parsifal, an seine Pilgerschaft und Suche nach dem heiligen Gral. Ich fühlte mich ihm und allen bewussten und unbewussten Gralssuchern verbunden. Wie viel weiß dieser Mann über sich und seinen Weg? Mir kam er weise vor. Vielleicht nicht an Worten, doch von seiner Ausstrahlung her.

Mit diesem Bild möchte ich die Wanderer und Grenzgänger ehren. Menschen die nicht in der Gesellschaft sesshaft werden können und konnten und nur ihrer inneren Stimme folgen…

Man Of Colours

Icehouse

 

And the old man rubs his failing eyes

And takes a moment to watch the view

From a window nobody knows is there

He can see the empty street below

 

He says, "i keep my life in this paintbox

I keep your face in these picture frames

And when I speak to this faded canvas it tells me

I have no need for words anyway..."

 

And he says, "i.

I am a man

A simple man

...A man of colours

And I can see

See through the tears

Tears of a man

...A man of colours"

 

Going through some old files tonight, and came across this one from our sunflower weekend at Quirindi in March of this year. This was taken on the farm, on Sunday morning and we were out there a few hours before sunrise shooting the Milky Way. By the time sunrise came around, we were freezing. There was a slight mist, a great ground fog and superb clouds in the sky. Took this one just as the sun was breaking the horizon. Hope you like "man Of Colours". Cheers, Mike
