In Honor of Monolith

I have an affinity for black and white photography.  Ansel Adams being one of the most well known photographers to take nature landscapes in black and white.

He is quoted as saying “Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space. I know of no sculpture, painting or music that exceeds the compelling spiritual command of the soaring shape of granite cliff and dome, of patina of light on rock and forest, and of the thunder and whispering of the falling, flowing waters. At first the colossal aspect may dominate; then we perceive and respond to the delicate and persuasive complex of nature.”

His descriptive words are poetic as are his photographs.

Here is the Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, California (1927)
He considered it his “first really fine photograph,” a career-changing image that marked his first successful “visualization”
This is Ansel Adams’s term for carefully determining all elements of a photograph before ever releasing the shutter.

It’s a stunning photo the immediately captured my eye.

In honor of birthday today I’m posting some of my black and whites.

A moment in time spent at Cathedral Waterfall near Gauley Bridge West Virginia.

The creek begins on Gauley Mountain and drops to the New River.  The drop is nearly 100 feet over a series of Upper Nuttall sandstone ledges.

 

The beauty of Mother Nature is astonishing.  The time taken to stop and view it is forever in my mind.  It leaves me with a breathless emotion as I capture art.

Dwell in the Beauty of Nature

Today is the day of the Partial Solar Eclipse and New Moon in an 11 year.

I honor the moon and the sun with a graciousness so bold.
We take time to dwell in its beauty.
The sanctity of love surrounds us.

Moonlight’s Purple Haze

1-20-18
The moon has moved into the intuitive sign of Pisces. During this time we are better able to access our spiritual gifts. Pisces has an otherworldy quality to it. Being a water sign it allows intuition to flow freely through your being. We are better able to absorb impressions, images and emotions from everything around us.

If you are looking to become more in touch with yourself, spirituality and the world around you this weekend is the perfect time to do so. The moon itself is magical. It asks us to focus on our hopes and dreams and to use our imagination in a way to inspire us to live.

The Pisces Moon connection gives us a sympathetic heart, an artistic temperament and a great capacity for doing work that will make a lasting impression as dreams, ideas and visions are waiting to be turned into reality.
We seek the magic and mystery of life and desire to uncover the hidden.

It is also a good time to be compassionate towards ourselves.

With unconditional love ~ Heather Maria

The Beauty of the Season

Christmas time is a belief in the past, courage for the present, and hope for the future, a wish that every cup may overflow with blessings and every path may lead to peace, let this remain with you always.  Never let a day pass without looking for the good, appreciating, and being grateful.  The magic of the season will bring beauty to our hearts.  Love always endures the test of time.
