Inside Out

On a Winter Morning – No. 3

“There is silver blue, sky blue and thunder blue. Every color holds within it a soul…”

Emil Nolde

What happens if you get up in the morning, walk out on the ice before sunrise? My breath fogs up the view finder. I can’t see what I am shooting. The camera is hard to handle, with and without gloves. It feels like a frozen brick.  I lay on the ice pointing the camera in the direction of the rising sun? What will I capture? We shall see later.

And then the miracle happens. One exposure results in something that looks… different.

It reminds me of art work created by Emil Nolde.

His art was condemned at one point.

One of his paintings sold recently for over $3,000,000.
