In our increasingly urbanized world, nature is fast becoming an abstract concept instead of being an all-pervading presence. Tomas Morkes is a Czech photographer who captures moving images of trees for the benefit of posterity. His images exude a sense of serenity and peace, something urbanites are hard-pressed to find. The foggy atmosphere gives his shots a aura of mystery.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
