Crying Nature by nodphotography

L’Islande m’a ouvert les yeux sur la nature, encore plus qu’auparavant.La beauté pure du monde, le chaos passé immense, le temps en suspension…. Ils s’entremêlent tous pour nous rappeler que la nature nous porte, nous transporte, nous accueille et non l’inverse.Petits êtres sur la croute terrestre, certains phenomenes sont là pour nous rappeler que la Terre hurle, qu’elle pleure, qu’elle se meurt.

Be Still by elizabethgadd

If I was able to choose a favourite image I’ve ever taken, this one might be it. A couple weeks ago Shane Black and I went to one of my favourite lakes in the early morning, and at first the fog was so thick I couldn’t even discern it from the still water that was mirroring it. We stayed at the lake for a couple hours and watched as the mist gradually lifted, beginning to reveal my beloved mountains. This was one of my most calming self-portrait experiences, taking my time to slowly walk through the water and then standing still to watch all the ripples dissipate until it felt like I was standing in a world frozen in that moment. (Meanwhile, Shane’s patiently but determinedly spending a substantial amount of time chasing a goose down the beach for his own photo.) I’d say this morning was absolute perfection, except for the fact that the gumboots I was wearing under the skirt were not quite tall enough… the amount of times I walked too far into the lake and had glacial water pour down and pool up around my feet and legs is innumerable. But it only adds to the memory. 🙂
