Although the nature art challenge is officially over for this month, I wanted to share one more piece of environmental art with you! One of my readers, Keith, emailed some images to me yesterday evening, requesting that I treat his first attempts kindly. When I opened the attached images, I was blown away by the thought and beauty that had gone into this installation. Here is the description of his work in his own words:
“We finally got away from the minus 5 degree weather and the 40’s lured me out with my camera. On the way out, I thought about my theme. I came up with something to do with the death of the snow…as it began to melt quickly in the sun. I started taking pics (I’ll send you the rest in the some additional emails). As I went along, I thought about the billions of snowflakes that fluttered to the earth to blanket it in white. So I decided to do a “Requiem for a Snowflake”. See what you think… I also went back 30 minutes later to see the monument’s progress into the snow.
I loved this… so much fun. I’ll send you some other pics of nature’s own Requiem for all the Snowflakes.”
Here is his resulting work:
UPDATE! Keith sent me these images from 2 days later:
In Keith’s words, “The snowflake memorial had been transforming…especially in this morning’s sun. After taking color and b&w pics, I added many, many snowflakes to the center of the memorial and took a few more pics.”
Here’s a shot of his addition to the work:
If anyone else gave the nature art challenge a try and would like to send some pics my way, I’d love to showcase your work! You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘Til later…Happy Explorations!
