  1. Another great series and an interesting study of negative space! I find it fascinating that you’ve moved from the desolate subject matter of a dystopian landscape to the natural barrenness of winter while bringing life so fully back to the planet. It was a tough journey but now I’m rested, showered and fed and ready to go out for a walk on the mountain side.
    Cheers, Jana

    1. Thank you, Jana! Yes, it has been a long journey– The events of the last few months caused me to focus on / rely on visual storytelling / expression more than the written word. But things are finally back to normal at last- The last ten days or so were spent resting and recovering from it all. New projects & new words will be shared soon. Hope all is well over there! Take care, Josh

    1. Thank you very much, Richard! In the original version of this I was trying to pick just twenty or thirty images out of the sixty– Then just suddenly decided to post all sixty. Why not, right? Have a great day over there, my friend!

    1. Thank you very much, Mike! Yes, I have always believed that if I am going to spend the time doing something that I should give it all I have. When I am lacking the focus or willpower to do so on a project that project is usually just abandoned. Thanks for the comment and have a great one!

    1. Thank you so much! Although I was not thinking about ‘Mirkwood’ while hiking around and taking these, I can certainly see the similarity and wish that I was able to explore / photograph such a place! I had attempted to just pick out twenty or thirty favorite images from the set, but ended up sharing all sixty instead! Thanks for the comment and enjoy the day!

  2. i especially like this series
    it would be difficult to say if the images are hard or…don’t know.
    but as hard or harsh or abstract or B&W they might be, i feel like just stepping right into them

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words– This set of images was much longer and more involved than most, but I enjoyed working on them and I’m glad you’d like to step into this world! Have a fantastic day over there! 🙂

  3. wow–I get such a crown of thorns feel from this–especially with that central figure, and especially if I go through it super fast–it takes on a flip book quality…It’s like the whole thing reconceptualized (to me) Great work!!

    1. Yes! I was thinking of the old flip books that I had as a kid while working on these [Since they are posted in the sequential order that they were photographed while I was walking around]– I was wondering if anyone else would get that or not! Thanks for the great comment!

  4. Your repetitive use of of the similar images-trees, etc in what I am guessing is an over exposure creates a suspention of disbelief for me so that they become abstractions. I liked this very much. >KB

    1. Thank you very much for the comment & I’m glad you enjoyed this set of images! Yes, your words are very close to describing my intentions– And half of the fun was really the first part of the process– Getting out of the studio and hiking around on a brisk morning to capture the original photos! Have a wonderful day over there!

    1. Thank you very much! Yes, I know what you mean! I actually paused a couple times while editing and considered the human resemblance with a few of them! I’m glad you enjoyed this set– Keep up the fantastic work over there and have a great one!

    1. Thank you very much! This was a project that was fun & enjoyable during each step of the process [First hiking around the wilderness on a brisk winter day to capture all of the images, then spending a few days editing each one, etc.] I am truly glad that you found it all to be inspirational! Have a fantastic day over there, take care! 🙂

      1. If we absorb in the nature and show to others as if they are part of that setting, it makes huge difference.

        Thanks a lot for providing such a life-like images.

    1. Thank you very much, George! I’m glad that you enjoyed this set– The process of capturing and editing all sixty images was very enjoyable as well! Thanks for the comment, take care!

    1. Thank you very much, John! This set is actually presented in the exact order that each photo was captured, something that I have never done before [Usually we all just pick out a few of our favorites and discard the rest]. The decision was made at a certain point to just throw the entire set through the transformation and post them all. Thanks for the comment, take care!

    1. Thank you very much, Caryl! This set was never intended to be so large [I had originally planned on twenty or so, not sixty], but once I started working and editing I just kind of lost control of it and decided to include them all! Thanks for all of the support and have a wonderful weekend!
