Catching the fleeting scenes of many splendored life with a camera.

Nature Corners,
Birch Forest in Spring

To me forests are some of the most beautiful places on earth. As a child, I dreamt of getting lost in the jungle and never finding the way back to the city every time we went on an  outing. Forests are especially lush and full of life in springtime. Although I love splendid majestic landscapes, I have a fondness for snug nooks and crannies any woods is rife with. Using orchestra as a simile, piano and string instruments are the leads, yet the sound of oboe isparticularly dear to my heart.

Life in Inanimate Things.
Abstracts

Inanimate objects can be full of life, you can arrange them so that they express an idea, mood or concept through the play of light, colour and shadow. They can even help you conjure up magic scenes...

Spiny Cocklebur, Teasel and Fringed Rue.

After walking in the fields I usually bring home at least one of these spiny cockleburs on my clothes and always leave them there as a kind of natural adornment.

Spring colours. Deep Orange and Orange.
Nasturtiums.

I love nasturtiums' deep, warm, saturated colours. So full of life and vivacity, a moment's glance is enough to boost your energy. What's more, these beautiful flowers aren't just decorative, they're edible in their entirety. That's 100% efficiency.
