Art: Essential Terminology

Oh my, there is no doubt that my youth was spent in some fashion playing a sport (none to well) and perhaps exercising some imagination, but probably only related to females. I just never was exposed, so to speak, to the arts (poetry, writings, painting, drawing, music). It was not on the radar for my parents or friends (save a neighbor boy who was/is an exceptional pianist). 

So, I came upon this terminology for art site while researching my own question related to a photo I snapped: is there a term, word for obscure, opaque, distracted views in photography? Still not sure about the image question, but here is a wealth of art terminology and history related to Dutch painters. And here is my image that begs adjectives.

Alder Latticework SwittersBThis lattice work of bare Alders, with the Cascades foothills (Gorge escarpment) in back was taken in an off road/trail spot. I seemed to always be shooting into the bright light given my position to the North of the rock face. Once the trees leaf out the view will be gone.

    The word that comes to my mind is ‘looming’ – I get a sense of the majestic height of the trees and the mountains… Into the light creates a surreal, dreamy feel. Great shot!

      Thank you very much. I haven’t made the effort in quite a few years but when the temps drop into the teens, the waterfall freezes up and builds out toward the end of the pool….very surreal and beautiful. Missed it this year. Again, thanks for the visit!
