Cedar tree, Mesa Verde, Colorado

Time and life’s conditions bring about change. This cedar tree with the markings of wind, rain and snow, deep cold and searing sun shows us that beauty and grace remain even though the cedars stately and grand posture has passed.

Tulips in the snow, Panfilov Park, Almaty, Kazakhstan.

While researching for my book The Soul of Kazakhstan in the New York public library, I came across a letter Natalya Sedova, Leon Trotsky’s wife, wrote home while exiled in Almaty, Kazakhstan. She exclaimed about the beauty of a late spring snow blanketing the tulips. I remember thinking, what a remarkable image, I’d love to see that. As good fortune would have it, my apartment was across from where the Trotskys lived. On a spring day in April, I was treated to the same beautiful sight.

Golden Wave

I moved down the beach and into the water so I could place this wave in a diagonal composition. I like the way the angle in combination with the contrast in light and the slow shutter speed enhanced the graceful sense of movement in this picture. There’s a softness and strength I find appealing in this image.
