Nature has a way of revealing its gentle yet immesarble presence. With these rocks ranging over 50ft high, its overwhelming height still gave me a sense of peace and security. The many different layers within the rocks were brightened and intensified through the sun’s light, showing the crisp lines running all throughout the canyon. While I was paused, looking up at these massive rocks, I saw the shape of a woman’s face and neck be formed through the rocks. It made me imagine as if this was mother nature physically showing herself through the rocks through an illustration of a woman’s face looking up, stretching forwards. The Indians call this rock “The Lady in the Wind.”
As I was chasing the winter storm, the striking and powerful views of nature made me stop in my tracks. I was immediately focused on the quiet and desolate forest, where my eyes slowly were drawn to the small-scale island in the center of the bay surrounded by the deep blue and riveting waters. The strong smell of pine overwhelmed me with feelings of nostalgia and security as I waited for the clouds to shift, finally creating a pattern that would encompass most of the sky.
The Golden Gate Bridge is an attraction that lures millions each year to San Francisco, California. I have seen many photographers try to take a photo of the entire bridge, but I find that it takes away the small and meticulous detail that can only be seen up close. This thought then gave me the inspiration to only photograph half of this remarkable bridge.
Being so close to the bridge allowed for the careful and precise measurements that went into making this bridge to be seen. Beyond the bridge, there are whirling clouds that watch over the sky. The shiny waters and blue sky complements the bridge’s red color and ties in every component together.
The infamous border of New Jersey and New York, with skylines and city life, skyscrapers, and an active, never sleeping population. This skyline needed to be photographed no matter the circumstance. As I had set up my equipment on the Statue of Liberty Island, my hands turned to ice, and I could barely lift the camera since this photograph was
taken in January. Even with these obstacles and a few hours of waiting for the perfect scenery, this sensational view came to be.
With not only beauty but history, this photograph consists of the Ellis island where many immigrants including Armenians fled to in 1915 as well as the Brooklyn Bridge which was the first-ever roadway that connected Manhattan and Brooklyn.
