citrine, rose quartz, stone, wood

Experiments in close-up macrophotography, with hard-angled sunlight and natural materials.

Translucent, transparent, opaque, reflective, non-reflective, different refractive indices. Shapes, crystal points, crystals polished to rounded forms, shadows in light. Abstract realism in photography.

Dappled shadows on the wood table from the trees outside, moving in the breeze, making ever-changing shadows. A moment's hesitation and the light has changed.

Natural forms reflected in art made with natural materials. Repeating forms in nature and in art.

The world glows with the light of the word made solid.

I enjoy macro photographing too, though i tend to have problems with wobble. You wouldn't believe the number of close-ups I've taken of houseflies... ;)

I luv your spiral stones. And the wood bits in the pic above - they are wood? And the light. Ooh, that light.

Wood they are indeed. Carved and shaped by natural forces.

Yeah, the light was spectacular for that hour. I am drawn to the light, and to lighting. It's what really gets my attention. This was the hour before sunset, when the light is steeply angled, and strong.
