"Adrift" is a photographic journey illustrating the joy of being suspended in a calm state of mind. In the end, "Adrift" was created in a thought-laden process as a composite image using 5 different frames. Over 150 exposures were captured during a two-hour period adrift on Haro Straight, northwest of San Juan Island. Long-exposure images of water in motion, different textures and waves, birds, skies, clouds, and sailboats returning from Victoria BC, were made.
Bev and I happily live in Bellingham, Washington, where the close proximity to the San Juan Islands has blessed us with a boating lifestyle. It has become an extended part of our lives and has woven itself deeply into my art. On the 8th of October, 2022, Bev and I made a last-ditch effort to travel to Roche Harbor. Our summer season was closing out. Fall was descending into those familiar cool nights, and winterizing our boat was a close eventuality. On that day an unusually warm, calm, and beautiful afternoon presented itself, so we decided to take the boat out to Open Bay. Upon arriving there, I pulled back on the throttle, and we came to rest in the glassy calm water. I then shut the engine down, to just drift on the tide. I couldn't help but notice the peaceful quiet that surrounded us. At that moment, I felt compelled to "get creative", so out came the camera. It was time for expression.
Please note: "Premium Limited Edition Prints" are exclusive art print products that I personally print, inspect, number, sign, and title in my Bellingham Studio. A certificate of authenticity is also included. For more details click HERE.
