Capturing Healing Energy in Photography

This photograph by Dick and Rosanne was included in “Our Bond With Nature” exhibition.

Our photographic images celebrate the unique studies of the awesomeness of nature. The purpose of our work in nature photography is to transplant the healing energy of nature to the walls of homes and offices to be appreciated throughout the day.

Most of our pictures are taken in our home and garden. We grow many interesting plants, both indoors and out, wild and cultivated.  Focusing on the world around us has given us an appreciation of the incredible beauty and power of nature.

If you sit in nature and start looking around, you will notice things never noticed before. Many things we take for granted have wonderful things to show us. The graceful leanings of a flower, the play of light and shadows, the incredible structure of something as common as the dandelion and moving patterns of clouds all engage us.

The interplay of insects on plants, colors of a sunset, and the color gradations of a flower petal enliven the senses. Patterns can be seen wherever we look — even the smallest of flowers have beautifully complex structures.

Once you start really looking at your environment you start appreciating colors and patterns in things both large and small. As you practice observing, appreciation of the environment grows, and a certain contentment claims you.

It Starts With A Healthy Garden

In our time here, we’ve watched the land heal and renew itself and us. It has brought new life which manifested as new plants and a variety of garden denizens. What pesticide producers consider weeds have their own unique qualities, beauty and healing properties. Everything in nature exists for a reason and a higher purpose.

We’ve spent many years cultivating our land into a natural oasis. By avoiding pesticides and other harmful chemicals we allowed our natural tapestry to flourish. We have learned that our photographs  reawaken viewers’ interest in nature and entice people to participate more in it and become involved in protecting it.

Every plant and every eco system have their own unique offering and abundance to share. We freeze moments in time, so they can be read in leisure. You can’t possibly see as much as is there in a glance. The more you look at it, the more you see and the more is offered for your edification.

As we continue to capture these moments in photographs others can reflect and explore this remarkable multi-level offerings at their leisure and over time. We have also created sacred geometry mandala-like images of plants and flowers to help draw in the viewer in to see aspects of nature that would not have been noticed otherwise.
