About OPPOSITES - #69
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” - John Lennon
First to set the scene, I had previously been shown this area from a good friend of mine on a recent hiking trip. As we were heading down the mountain, I saw this scene out of the corner of my eye! The glance was only for a split second, but I knew that I must return to create an edition.
2 weeks later, I was finally able to have the extra time available to return to the area. It was a beautiful summer afternoon in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Because I was alone this time around, I was able to take all the time I needed to perfectly compose the balance I was envisioning.
That extra time to meticulously compose the scene can be a wonderful thing, but in beautiful scenes (like this edition) it can also be next to impossible to capture all the magnificent beauty into a single image. I am finding that as I explore more exotic places, the more I am experiencing this challenge.
Trying to find “the spot” for my editions can be quite strenuous. After much time scouting a location during my adventures to these exotic landscapes, I will come across a unique scene that clicks in every sense. The lighting is perfect, the landscape is unified with my vision, and of course, there are many interesting stones nearby.
Although there were many larger boulders hanging around in this area, to my surprise there were only a few smaller shaped rocks. Eventually I found two stones that were just begging to be hung in equilibrium. One large stone and one small stone. Complete opposites. I wanted to create a balance that fully showcased the power that opposites have on each other with a strong counter-balance.
The end result shocked me. The way the two rocks are perfectly working together is amazing. Without the help of the smaller stone, the larger stone would not have been able to hold in such a magnificent form…
