Behind The Scenes of My Fine Art Abstract Photography

When I show people my photos I often get comments like:

“What is that?”

“How do you do that?”

“How do you SEE that?”

The answers to the last two are usually something along the lines of…”I don’t know. I just do.” In part that is true, I just do. I notice things like shapes and patterns and textures that other people often don’t see. I don’t try it, it just is. And, I’m grateful for that gift that is beyond me. BUT, I also “practice” keeping my brain open to this gift through creativity workouts either with my camera, my pastels, writing, etc.

Today I thought I’d take you behind the scenes of my fine art abstract photography vision using a recent sunset shoot in the Pacific Northwest.

I was staying in Snoqaulmie for a few days playing foster mom to a friend’s dog. He’s quite the adventure seeker, like me, so we spent a lot of time exploring the outdoors. We arrived at Rattlesnake Lake shortly before sunset and I was hanging out on the shores of the lake taking in the beautiful blues. Nothing beats Nature’s fine art!




Suddenly THIS caught my attention!

So I got as close to the COLD water as I could without being IN IT and started playing with the reflections of the clouds on the water and how they changed with the movement of the tide.

Blue Resonance


I love how they turned out and those BLUES just feed my soul! Hopefully you get a little blue soul energy infusion from these too!

Thanks to the many design enthusiasts I follow on Pinterest, I created a little portfolio of how these fine art abstract photography images would look on the wall!
