L'avenir est clair que la boue! - (Clear as Mud)

"The Future is clear as the Mud!"

This image is one that I shot in Yellowstone National Park at the Grand Prismatic Pool, way back in July of 2009. I captured it with my trusty little Olympus E-510 digital camera.
The Mud and Colors were amazing. It always struck me as being rather like a Crystal Ball gone mad! ...Instead of looking into and seeing the future, we look into the pool and see confusion, i.e. reality! If you meet someone who can truly predict the future, I would say "RUN!"
I hope you like 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
