Having an abundance of woodland trails to explore and being a lover of winter, with overcast days of heavy snowfall being followed by bright sunny nearly cloudless ones, I was taken by the lovely patterns that leafless trees were casting on nearly virgin snowscapes and with the sun bursting boldly through the trees’ naked branches shooting its rays in all directions. And so, this project was conceived.
I think the name is self-explanatory, the stripes being the long shadows cast by the sun, our star. Obviously the sun does not appear in every shot but it is there, off stage so to speak, Without it, the stripes would not have been possible. The titles reflect the dominant feature in the photo.
As you sift through the images, my hope is that you will experience some of the quiet joy that I experience on my winter wanders where nature’s silence plays like a Bach Oratorio in the mind and it’s visual masterpieces are hung everywhere the eye looks.
