Marshlands Edge to Infinity

Today the marshlands at peak beauty show a dazzling color palette that is the envy of artists, poets and photographers alike. How can we capture such beauty with purity? We must, we try, we can. Let it mesmerize your eyes and soul.

“The tide ’s at full; the marsh with flooded streams
Glimmers, a limpid labyrinth of dreams.
Each winding creek in grave entrancement lies
A rhapsody of morning-stars. The skies
Shine scant with one forked galaxy,—
The marsh brags ten: looped on his breast they lie.”
-Sidney Lanier

Glorious Color in the Heavens

What beauty is found every day in our universe that just takes the breath away and makes a photographer risk weather’s changing dangers just to capture an image of stunning colors and magnificent clouds before the storm.  As designers, capturing the amazing colors and vistas is significant in our design work for natural beauty palettes. They make beautiful photography for our “Art on Canvas” Waterscape Series.*

THE DAWN’S awake!
A flash of smoldering flame and fire
Ignites the East. Then, higher, higher,
O’er all the sky so gray, forlorn,
The torch of gold is borne.

The Dawn’s awake!
The dawn of a thousand dreams and thrills.
And music singing in the hills
A pæan of eternal spring
Voices the new awakening.

The Dawn’s awake!
Whispers of pent-up harmonies,
With the mingled fragrance of the trees;
Faint snatches of half-forgotten song—
Fathers! torn and numb,—
The boon of light we craved, awaited long,
Has come, has come!

Traveling for the Blooms

We are traveling over a Tri-State area of Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland to capture the incredible spring burst of Cherry and Apple Blossoms. We are featuring them as our main focus on the blogs this week. This year the blooms are just extraordinary and from white to pink to hot pink blooms to golden-lime-forest green foliage, they are impressive. All of our bloom images will be processed for the “Art on Canvas” series for 2013-2016.
