The Little Things in Nature
I like to try and find simplicity in my compositions while photographing nature. I made this image with my 4 x 5 view camera on a tripod not far from my home along Powers Creek. When I made this picture I was photographing another part of the ice bound creek which I though was my best image and at first I wasn't aware of other images around me but as I spent more time contemplating my surroundings I became more aware of other picture possibilities. I was concentrating on the "big picture" but after being still and letting the surrounding environment speak to me, I found it was the little things in nature that made the best picture of the day.
