Sunday Morning Gallery - The Nature of Abstraction

Fine art photography has grown into a true art form of its own. One only has to look in the finest art galleries to find "photos" of fantasy worlds, surreal landscapes, or abstract art. The digital age has given powerful tools to the skilled photographer to be able to create something beyond what the lens sees in reality. Because of this creative well spring, I have become more and more fascinated with abstractions in nature photography. It seems the only limits are the ones we place on ourselves.

I hope you enjoy my dabbling and let me know what you think.

A summer weed goes to seed in the golden light.

Friends in colorful summer shirts sit at a glass patio table creating an instant Monet.

A springtime tree in bud creates fractals in the blue sky.

The winter woodstove shimmers with heat.
