Morning with the Dogwood

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 29 May 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I captured this a few weeks ago as I was leaving for work. Our small Dogwood Tree was finally beginning to bloom, and the sun was just coming up. The mist and the horizontal light were completely bathing the far side of the tree creating an amazing backlight. I mounted "Oly" my monopod and fired off off several shots. I liked this one the best. Please feel free to critique this.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
