Nature’s Serenity: Photography

Outback Oasis

Early mornings and late afternoons are the ideal times to capture the serenity of nature whether I’m painting or taking photos. The tranquil setting along with the soft edges and cool lavenders create the perfect relaxing mood in the photo “Serenity.”

Water is always a great subject for portraying calmness, especially using cool colours.  If its the middle of the day there is a lot of glare and contrast that creates harsher tones and sharper edges. Dusk and sunrise help create softer edges which will convey a smoother, more relaxed feel to the image.

All these shots were taken while up in Darwin, NT Australia and trekking around the area. It had stunning scenery, sunsets, waterfalls, crocodiles. Though, I have to confess, the whole crocodile boat trip, was not, definitely not, relaxing!  But the rest certainly was.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

    1. thank you! out with tourists who had NO clue & doing what the guide told them NOT to do, in a tiny dinghy with no ‘rail meshing’ to stop the crocs from jumping in. it was rather ‘exciting’ as the male croc was angry. 🙂
