Art 'Au Naturale'

Having wandered around the woods for a while we came upon this fantastic specimen
'Chinese Red Birch'
see the beautiful bark ...
take a closer peek
who'd a thought
nature could paint

so brilliantly?

There is a lot going on in that bark. As well as being very pretty, it is that very thin layer below the bark that is the workhorse for the hugest tree.

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter!
