Bleary-Eyed Nature

Playing around with this long-distanced shot, I "saw" something mystical in
the setting. I am intrigued by Birch Trees , especially at a distance. They seem to have a way about them - "standing out" with no leaves - a blurry aura about them can be witnessed from a long distance. This picture refused to be sharpened! So, I just "went with it"...and, in so doing, the perfect example of Birch trees in winter appears....

- " 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
