The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

I am very critical of landscape photography as fine art. Landscapes have been overly done and often cliches, offering little in a new perspective. Most landscapes images are about aesthetics as defined as an appreciation of beauty and often lack emotional interest other than just another pretty picture. My approach to this image was to create an ethereal and mystical scene that was not there at the moment of capture. The color palette was intended to create an older look adding to its mystery.
