illuminate the darkness

In photography, if I am able to evoke not only a feeling of the reality of the surface physical world but also a feeling of the reality of existence that lies mysteriously and invisibly beneath its surface, I feel I have succeeded. At its best, photography is a symbol that not only serves to help illuminate some of the darkness of the unknown, but it also serves to lessen the fears that too often accompany the journeys from the known to the unknown.
--Wynn Bullock (1902-1975) American photographer

  1. Very nice. It's now on my short list. Love the greens. Good water flow (must be after the recent rains). With a really calm day it's begging for some HDR techniques.

  2. Oh my gosh! This is beautiful! I can't wait to get to Tennessee!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
