Through A Glass Darkly

Visual Spirit

The title is a fragment from the thirteenth chapter of the First Epistle to the Corinthians.

During brief moments of the upstate New York autumn season perfect images are mirrored in quiet pond waters.

It this case the effects lasted a few seconds.

This work is a composite of four images, the mirror image of each of two photographs. I print it on a stretched canvas 5 feet wide by 4 feet high.

  1. Lovely! And an interesting composite. Living in the piedmont of NC, I tend to forget that the beautiful of autumn arrives in upstate NY in mid-September. I had the pleasure of spending a week there the third week of September a few years ago. It was breath-taking!

    1. We are looking forward to this annual turning. So far, only our flame bush is slightly turning, the Black Walnut leaves yellowing and falling here and there. Maples and oaks still a solid green.
