01.04.2012 Star in an Algal Galaxy

Many thanks to Steve Schwartzman for putting the idea of algae into my head.

Today started out at 6°F and I was planning on finding some nice ice subjects, but two of the usual brooks I go to had lots of fallen logs from the October storm, so I tried a different spot with a beaver pond.  This is my favorite from the shoot…so far.

  1. It’s great that you were able to add the white angularity of the “star” to the green curvaceousness of the objects in the rest of the image.

    I haven’t had a chance to visit your blog for awhile….been up to my eyeballs in alligators as of late. What a nice treat to see your work. It is really outstanding. I look forward to more of your work in the coming year. Love this image.


  6. I like Steve Schwartzman’s observations and agree with the other commenter’s sentiments regarding this image. What a nice change of pace to visit you.

    Hi Steve
    Just like everyone else, I love that image. The composition, the color, the graphic elements. Incredible. And I have to add, you also do really well with the wider view. (I do know what you mean about the fallen trees. They are everywhere and really make it hard to get a clean shot. )

    Really nice! It looks like a sculpture and the green, crackled background sets off the crystal nicely!
