DETAILS:

I have always been drawn to scenes that embody the idea of transcendence in nature and especially those employing the use of symbolism, which helps explain why they resonate deeply with some ancient connection in my psyche. Whenever I see the Great Blue Heron fly, I am struck by its soothing shape as well as by its distinctive, almost prehistoric, wing beat pattern. All birds in general are considered as archetypes representing creatures that can move between worlds, hinting at the shifting of states of being, transitioning from one world to another. The commanding physical size and unique presence of consciousness of the Great Blue Heron lead one to imagine that perhaps this transitioning quality is true. The natural soft qualities of clouds embody both a connection to and a release from the terrestrial. In this case the predominate color orange connotes tranquil change. I believe there is a part in all of us that is also trying to pierce the veil and see what is on the other side. In this image, that hole in the sky with the soft light is almost an hypnotic matrix calling for me to enter and the pure simplicity of the image helps set the imagination free to explore the viewers own feelings and thoughts. It also seems appropriate that the photograph of the Blue Heron was taken at Emigrant Lake, a place named for transitioning.
