Nature As Art

All of my Art Photography in one place.


I'm not sure if "Art Photography is really the right name for these pictures. Mostly, these are pictures where I isolate small pieces of a scene in closeups. These closeups, isolated from rest of the world turn into something very much like abstract paintings. Some of the pictures are very abstract (mostly color, shape, form and line) and others are small, recognizable pieces of real places that work more as abstsract art than my more traditional landscape photography does.

At any rate, all of these pictures are real scenes; they look just as I found them in nature.

Actually, I think a lot of my pictures can be seen as art. And there are many pictures, particularly some of my wildflower shots that ought to be included here that are not. So, this catagory,"Nature as Art" is pretty arbitray, but I think it may have some value in helping visitors to find what they are looking for.

Many of these pictures have to be seen in a little more detail to appreciate them. Be sure to click the small thumbnail picture to go to a larger picture.
