The Landscape of the Triangle Area of North Carolina
The Triangle Area landscape is my adopted landscape. I have been living in North Carolina now for about 3 years. While I have always been interested in landscape work because I love to be outdoors and in nature, the pandemic has kept me more localized that has been usual in the past. The question was, then, why not take advantage of necessity and put up all the landscapes done within about 50 miles of my home. This is their gallery.
These images may be licensed and are available for fine art prints that I do myself in collaboration with you. Contact me via the "Contact me" section of the website.
Oak Creek is a boggy area that empties into Jordan Lake. On this morning, the same morning as the kayakers above, the fog was lifting. There is a nest on the tall, bare post near the middle of the image. It is a raptor nest and there is a raptor in it sitting on eggs but the bird is very hard to make out at this distance.
I have been working on sunrise images at Jordan Lake which is a large, very large, manmade lake in the Triangle that serves as its reservoir. This particular morning when I went out, there was a full moon and as the sun was coming up, the moon was setting. In the image we are looking West.
For years I have wanted to catch the colors in trees as they are just budding out. I have been very taken with the light yellow-green of the new leaves. This year, since I am not going very far, I decided to pick my tree and do the job. You can notice the birds hanging out in the upper branches toward the middle of the tree.
