This would look great printed big and hung on the wall
Kathryn: Thanks, Bill. It looked great when I was there...soft and blended all together--sort of a smudge.
This is great, you havent lost your touchwink and you have joined the speedy B&W clubsmile See Tim
Kathryn: Thanks, Nig. I got lost in the motion and softness of it--typical German countryside...

I see the speedy B&w club is holding a meeting and you are a card carrying member too smile
Your style is unmistakable!
Ciao smile
Kathryn: Just yesterday I showed a friend this photograph with out telling them it was one of mine and his reply was.."wow that could be one of yours." I giggled so perhaps you are right, but now I need to figure out of i am STUCK. I quit taking pictures for months because I felt my style was too narrow and i could not see things fresh and new. Do you ever feel that way? I know others here have expressed the same sort of thing.
This is so subtle! I love it Kathryn.
Kathryn: Thank you, Richard. I personally aspire to be subtle, but am about as subtle as a ton of bricks landing directly on your head. Nice to know I reached my goal at least with this photograph smile

You could almost blink and miss it, it's so subtle. This just looks like a landscape glimpsed from a speeding train. Beautiful.
Kathryn: I like that thought, Ingrid---"you could almost blink and miss it." I wonder how many things I miss in my blinks..
Yes I do, but I think the artistic evolution must be a natural process rather than a choice smile
Kathryn: thanks for your answer....would you tell me more about the natural process?

The setting for a short essay on "The Garden of Forking Paths"?

I admire works by folks who seem able to work with the "less is more" principle...this is a fine example and you are a fine artist, Kathryn.

[Me...still stuck in the "less is less and more is more" camp, but have not quit trying yet]
Kathryn: Ray, thank you so very much. Reminds me of Einstein's "Make things as simple as possible, but no simpler."

(I tend to be stuck in the "do whatever makes me happy for the moment and then spend the rest of my life dealing with the consequences. maybe one day I will grow up....naaa, not likely!)

a very atmospheric, subttle pic- I could imagine: on a misty day along a river and rows of trees, for example in North Germany near to Worpswede, a landscape which has inspired so many painters! I very like this photo!

…between the forest and the ocean
they stand in front her blurry vision
so far away from noisy Pollock
so close to poetry of Brahem…

a blurring of the lines between heaven and earth

a sharpness of the lines between earth and hell
Kathryn: you make me smile---sometimes smile this is one of those times, VZ. Care to know why?

Very beautiful, both ethereal and grounded at the same time. Simple yet full.
Kathryn: Suzanne--most of the times I float miles above the ground where the air is thin. While I find it freeing, it makes breathing a bit hard smile I struggling with grounding myself and it reflects i my life and in many of my photographs (most of which I don't post here). Nice to know I reached a balance on this one.
I'd like to do, but I am not sure to be good for this in english smile

Sorry sad

not sure if you have heard a spanish group, Mecano, they have a song titled 'aire' which came to my mind when i saw your picture...

soñè por un momento que era aire,
oxigeno, nitrogeno y argon,
sin forma definida
ni color
fui aire volador'

i dreamed for a while that i was air
oxygen, nitrogen and argon
without a definite shape
nor colored
i was flying air...'

sometimes i feel like this, and you???, some other times i'd like to feel like this...
wonderfully soft and dreamy - I love this!
Wonderful shot
