As long as I can remember I’ve always been in total awe of the environment, especially mountainous areas. Even as a kid I vividly remember romping through the outdoors and collecting sticks or rocks and feathers. To be totally honest I still do that in a way. I’m a aspiring photographer myself and what I decided was instead of having a house full of sticks, trees and rivers, the best way to capture my love and connection with the outdoors is to take a photo. A couple weeks back the sierra’s received some snow. The snow lover that I am, you better bet that I was out there collecting trees and leaves and snow flakes with my camera. Here are a couple photos that I took.
Another Artist that I learned about recently who creates sculptures out of what he finds in the environment and then photographs them is Andy Goldsworthy. He does amazing work and you should take a peek at his work.
