I would love to walk through the tangles to see what may be hiding behind the mystery.
Your river and wild growth shots always take me back to my pre-teen days. Nothing was more fun than walking along the river and knowing that no one has seen what I was seeing. Thanks for sharing.
Rivers and tangled landscapes – I think that those are the best part of childhood. May we never grow out of those experiences!
Thank you for your kind comment, Wally, it is appreciated.
That is the landscape I love (strangely since I was small).
Karen, you captured the atmosphere very well.
Me too, Yoshizen. I think there is magic in these places. : ) Who could resist?!
unkempt, what a perfect word! I love the photos.
Thank you, Anne Rose!
Legions of enchanted organisms whispering to one another. I love the beautiful swiveling disorder of each one.
I’m going to have to get back there now that we have lots of fresh snow! It feels like a place with ‘history dust motes’ floating around it. Thanks very much, Elena.
Love the photos!
I loved the textures here. 🙂
“unkempt wildness” I love the sound of that.
In places like those you show I often doubt “it will work” in black and white. You prove it does. And very well so!
Beautiful spirit you have captured here Karen. Really stirs one up inside as the fingers of winter begin their journey deep into our way of life. The darkness is there, but light shines where we walk.
Knarled, curled, and almost a little cross at themselves in their deepening tangles!
I love the subtle palette of warm and cool colour in your last shot – a hint of rebirth !
Those areas are such a world unto themselves…a wonderful place to be…and well captured, Karen.
Decay is seemly more interesting to me also!
Wild places. I love them! Beautiful shots, Karen.
Just beautiful, Karen. I love your acceptance of “things as they are,” to paraphrase a line from T.S. Elliot. As I do with so many other of your images, I wonder “Why didn’t I think of that?” Or “Why didn’t my photographs of that turn out as well?” I study your work and hope to benefit from the scrutiny and meditation, only to realize that you own these scenes, plant life, and creatures. I cannot watch a crow fly across the road in front of me without seeing it as if you have photographed it. It’s your crow.I am not complaining. I enjoy my own attempts too much to surrender to your mastery. I just revel in your skill, perception, and insight. Thank you for this blog.
Oh, my goodness, Linda. What a comment! I am touched by your words, thank you so much.
It thrills me to know that others are moved by the images I put out into the world. I love how we all perceive and ‘record’ things in our own way and get so much joy from looking at the work of other photographers, too, including yours! Thank you.
A wonderful mess of vegetation Karen beautifully captured! 🙂
I love that unexpected blast of colour as I scroll down – beautiful shots, Karen!
Great set of images!
Order in chaos – I like that!
