Below the surface…

“There are two sorts of curiosity – the momentary and the permanent. The momentary is concerned with the odd appearance on the surface of things. The permanent is attracted by the amazing and consecutive life that flows on beneath the surface of things.” Robert Wilson Lynd

The sky, on high…

Ever notice how many people display images of the sky…usually not just a blue sky, but rather a combination of clouds, sky and the pallet of colors. Something draws the eye, the mind to the sky beyond the colors and cloud shapes. I’m never certain how to express the why’s of it all or if it is even necessary beyond it all pleases. Yet, I silently wonder. Something primitive, spiritual, prophetic, soothing or ominous, in all the variations, captures the eye, in person or as shared by others.

Challenges in Life…..

I wonder, in the day of little convenience, what would I have done? Would I have hunkered down near those rocks? When would I, or someone with me, have started wondering what is on the other side of that distant ridge? Would I have settled or gathered myself to go see what was beyond that ridge top?  

Risks, challenge, questions, courage, fatigue, settling, imagination, curiosity, life, change.

but…but…but…

no one understands? Everyone reaching out to share, to explain, to seek, to find. Adrift, clutching, hiding, needing. Answers, truths, realities challenged. The challenge becomes the norm. The spinning of mental balm the talent. Fine, but yet we seek the truths again and again. Will we recognize them when we see them? Moments of truth will either rise like the morning sun or crash upon our heads to bring us to our knees.

Photography: Those Pesky Science Questions………….

Geeze, if only I would have really paid attention in those Science classes rather than staring  out the window and daydreaming. Perhaps I would know the answer to this question based on a recent observation from the field.

My wife took a series of photos of rocks adjacent to a lake. The images clearly depict a water line of sorts.

HWR4

HWR2

HWR1

So, I researched littoral zones, eulittoral zones, lakes, vegetation, high water, Southern exposures, lichen, types of rocks etc. Why does nothing grow upon the rocks below the high water marks? The water is well below this mark for many warm months during the Summer. The water doesn’t rise up to this level for many months after Summer. Snow/Ice covers much of this area at times. I just wonder the why of it.

My wife took these images not with that question in mind, but rather she intuitively sensed the contrast and starkness of it all in a harsh environment. Perhaps someone with a greater grasp of science or more common sense than I can answer the question?

Photography: Questions (Who, What, When)

Hole in the Rock SwittersBPart of the enjoyment of photography, and outdoor pursuits in general, is having questions pop into your mind for further exploration. Here the photo begs questions. Because I am not overly inquisitive re the sciences, I gave a brief thought to how was that hole in the rock formed…but only briefly. The more studious photographer will think of lighting and depth of field considerations and form a critique…I kind of did.

No for me the question is ‘who/what crawled into that hole in the past?’ Did anyone ever crawl into that hole for shelter only to find a creature already inhabiting it for shelter? I am not just thinking the photo ops that have perhaps originated here, but rather what transpired a hundred years ago and farther back in time.
