Isn’t it amazing how many ways water can behave and look! It can quietly reflect, violently thrash rocky shorelines, gurgle while it swirls down the drain, evaporate and reappear as clouds, then drip back down to earth as rain. There are more — fog, mist, ice, steam, drops, etc. How many more can you think of?
Think how many ways we use it. Are there any other elements that are as versatile as water?
Fort Myers and Sanibel Island Florida have become places I enjoy visiting. The gorgeous Gulf and the serene sunsets that seem to swiftly sink behind the tree lined shores of Fisherman Key or Sanibel Island make each sunrise and sunset meaningful to me.
Some old buildings in rural areas have a rustic charm. Such is the case with this old farm house in Hawthorne, Florida. The front porch and railing recalls days long past. The aged wood has weathered blazing sun and pelting rain.
I first noticed this building about 15 years ago and wanted to shoot it but traffic nor time would permit. In April I saw the field of yellow and knew this was the time. I drove my truck up on the curb, stopped, rolled the rear passenger window down, leaned my seat back, and shot it through the window.
Switzerland is one of the most beautiful countries I have visited. One of the things that struck me is how farmers raise crops and cattle on steep mountainsides by making terraces. The Swiss geography is filled with contrasts that add to its beauty. This image was shot through the front windshield somewhere between Geneva and Zermatt.
