Rialto Beach after Sunset, Olympic NP. 2005
There are moments as a landscape photographer that perfectly form a creative ethos, painted not with words or pigment but in peace and light. This image, made more than ten years ago, encompasses the feeling of what I sought and of what I still search for in every image I make. A sense of peace and a quality elicit of time spent in nature meditation. That place you must go alone where the wind, the sea air, the pebbles underfoot, the pine branches at the beach edge all grow their roots through your soul tugging at the primordial soup that we all still have deep inside.
