This time of year Sarasota has dramatic skies. Beyond the the beauty of nature there is an opportunity to experience in an elemental way the energy of connection between heaven and earth. Sometimes the clouds are dark and foreboding and even then behind the darkness there is light. Taking time to be present and take in the moment can be a teaching. Nature is the source.

The entrance to a sacred area within the complex at Al-Hijir. The archeological site of Al-Hijr (Madain Saleh) is the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Saudi Arabia. It is a major center of the Nabataen civilization. It is the largest Nabataen site south of Petra in Jordan. It bears testimony to the Nabataen civilization between the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC and pre-Islamic period in the 1st century AD.

My friend and fellow photographer, Peter Silvia made an astute observation about a recently curated collection of my images showcasing water.
“You know Wayne these images of water are really about serenity”.
Images can be more about feeling than the fact of the subject.
This is particularly the case when when we are in a state of union with the subject we are observing.
I hope when you look at the images I’ll share in the coming days you find that they give you a moment of serenity.
My new online store eastepstore.wayneeastep.com is open for ordering prints. The curated collection has been edited for display art in the home, office, hospitality, health care and corporate spaces.
