Every year when the winter rains come I get excited about spring. It is my favorite time of year when the hillsides turn green and then burst with color. Mostly I notice the bright colored mustard flowers that brighten up my drive along the 101 freeway. This year they were especially abundant where there had been a fire in December. Such a bright reminder of the renewal that comes in spring. The hill had been charred to black and now was something of exquisite beauty. I also love to spend many days in search of other wildflowers like poppies and lupines. It is a beautiful time of year!!
Before we can form a solid understanding of fine art nature photography, we need to explore what defines fine art photography and nature photography in their own right. When combined, these two approaches come together to evoke emotions, tell a story, and connect us to the endless power and promise of nature through awe-inspiring fine art nature photography. When we hang such art in our indoor spaces, we elevate our quality of life by bringing the purity of the outdoors inside.
