Beautiful, Karen!! and so real!!…
Thank you, Kari!
These are so incredibly beautiful…. Your world shines through
Thanks very much, Anthony, it was a lucky few minutes.
Magical – especially like monochromatic versions.
Thank you, Kat. I was thinking of only posting the black and white but it felt incomplete somehow. I’m glad you like them!
Especially the Birds on the Water is phenomenal.
The birds are so peaceful in the morning. Thank you, Yoshizen, I’m happy you like it!
Eine wirklich gelungene Aufnahme! 🙂
Thank you for this!!!
That’s’ what I said to the fog and the tree. A pleasure, Sarah.
Thank you, Ania.
Wow, when they work those ‘into the sun’ photos really work – these are great!
Thanks very much, Christian. It was a bit of thrill to witness this.
Oh, they are definitely worth seeking out. Wonderful ‘in between’ moments, Karen!
Thanks, Marina! I was happy to be there. : )
Wonderful captures Karen. Would like to see #2 in colour 🙂
Thanks very much, David!
Here is the colour version:
Just as I expected Karen, love those beautiful golden rays. Thanks you so much.
So very nice to see those encounters with the power of light and shadow. Yes, the true beauty of the light reveals itself in the shadows. Therefore I am quite happy to see you went for B/W in the first two shots. Very powerful, very nice.
Have a wonderful sunday.
Thank you, Roland. Yes, I like the black and white for these too. It seems more dramatic somehow.
Sometimes color is our friend and sometimes it is just distracting from the beauty beyond the color. 😉
Have a wonderful day.
Oh Karen, how beautifully wonderful; the canopy.
Hi Jack, yes the tree canopy with the fog and sun breaking through – I was lucky to be there. Thanks very much!
I really like the two black and white images.
Thanks, Nick, I think those are my favourite too, I like how the light shows up in those.
Thanks so much! : )
Wonderful images,thanks Karen
A pleasure to share them, Hanno. I’m happy you enjoy them.
Superb ! -as always.
Much thanks, Periklis! : )
I was fortunate to be in the right place a t the right time. Thanks, Allen!
Beam me up:) Beautiful.
Exactly! Thanks, Elena! : )
awesome images. especially love the b&w
Thanks very much, Stacy.
When I saw this I said “Yes!” – that is what it looks like when the light begins to disperse the fog. Very opportune of you to capture this, Karen. What a beautiful sight.
Yes, it was a lucky moment. I was happy to witness it. Thanks, Judy.
Marvellous.. absolutely marvellous !!
Thank you, Helen. : )
Oh! You bring the stars closer! These are extraordinary and unspeakably beautiful yet here I blather still … I particularly love the last one. It makes me so happy and gives everything sense (meaning absolutely everything) somehow! It’s
Ike the answer to the 64 million dollar question! hooray! you found it, 🙂 🙂 🙂
Gigi, you are so great! Thanks for making my week with your comment. : )
beautiful pauses 🙂
Kinetic and totemic. Gorgeous.
Thanks, Steven. Totemic is an interesting observation, I like that.
Love the subtlety of the 4th image 🙂
Thanks very much, it was a slow motion sort of scene.
Oh. Breathtaking… Love these!
Thanks, Alessandro. One of those magic moments I was lucky to witness.
These are really superb!
Great photos, and very much patience on your part waiting for just the right shot.
The timing was pure chance, thanks, Hansi!
Wow, simply wow! Incredible shots and strangely like large-scale inversions of your seed heads. Did you stake the place out beforehand or was this pure chance?
I know what you mean with the seedhead comparison – I had the same thought! A moment of pure chance really, but it’s a place I often go. Thanks, Richard!
Those pics were amazin´
They always say don’t shoot into the sun but I e got some of my best photos that way. Maybe knowing nothing about photography helps rather than hinders my case 🙂
I think you should try everything, often! Its the best way to learn, isn’t it? And sometimes you find surprising and delightful results.
Intuition is something that really develops with experimentation I find. Thanks for your comment, Marie.
Have a nice week,
Vinc, thanks very much.
These are absolutely breathtaking! I especially love the first two. Stunning 🙂
Much thanks, Beki, I was happy to be there for those few moments.
Thanks very much!
the ones of the trees remind me of the paintings and sculptures of the Holy Spirit in some Catholic churches!
That’s an interesting comparison, they were radiant rays of light!
Thanks very much, Jesus!
Beautiful shot, Karen. They make me want to “walk into the light…” Thanks.
Thanks, Jane, it would have been nice to have a person standing under one of those light rays. : )
Jesus trees. Burning bushes? These completely assuage my secret desire for meaning. I love especially the one with the inexplicable green and yellow geometry. Love!
Thanks, Anna. A radiant few moments I was happy to witness.
What you don’t see is that I had fallen in the river just moments before and was mud-covered up to my hips – saved the camera though! : )
Beautiful shots karen
Thanks very much, Simon. The timing worked out nicely.
Dreamlike. Really wonderful shots.
Hi Mo, thank you for your comment. Happily, I was in the right place as the sun broke through the fog.
Some amazing light you’ve captured in these images. Love them!
Thanks very much, Uday. It worked out nicely timing wise.
Excellent captures! As I also tinker around with light settings, I know that its real difficult to get such lovely pics. Keep up the great work!
Oh….I love those ducks on the water…wonderful, Karen.
Thank you, Scott.
You’re welcome! I can’t wait to see more.
I do not have a camera that can capture such beauty but I will marvel at yours. It feels so good capturing such a moment.
I get to see them, but I cannot capture them. Thank you, Karen.
You will find your own beauty, and a way to mark it. Words, lines, images, …
There is something for each of us.
*smiling* Thank you.
Beautiful compositions. Very effective sequence. 🙂
Thank you! : )
