Anyone who has tried to photograph dragonflies knows how frequently impossible it is with their darting and dashing about. Finding one in a rare moment of rest is a delight, enabling you to catch their brilliant colours and fine architecture. So congratulations to Briar on this fine photo!
Beyond straight photography lies the realm of the imaginery photograph. Les Hooton has produced this wonderful figure of the imagination, Meeting the Elders. Each individual image was itself taken by Les; and he has combined them into one fantastical picture of a world that I, for one, would love to travel to. And as I look at this image, I feel like I could just step into the scene described.
It looks like a scene from HP Lovecraft, strange beings up to no earthly purpose.
Dinesh has a good friend who like to stand in waterfalls so he was able to get this wonderful photo. The low light required a long exposure which only serves to give the that dreamlike, sharp-misty quality. The angle of the light being predominantly from above creates strong constrasts which adds to that.
Beautiful work! To see more of Dinesh’s work, click HERE.

There is such a beautiful antique feel to this photo, almost seeming enamelled so smooth is the finish, a soft sensual spirit, all embracing and rejecting nothing. And of course you can see more of Cathy’s work on RedBubble.
It is just one of many wonderful and unique works by this talented artist and you can view her portfolio on RedBubble.
I am very happy to be featuring this work today, because I feel that it has an added dimension not often seen, however often attempted; that being the real introduction of a spiritual lesson into the work. All I can say is look at the work and keep the notion of motion in mind.
