"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

“Eruption” – Ancient Landscapes Series

“The greatest teacher on the use of light in photography, … is the light itself.”
M.B.

Often, I can look through the viewfinder of the camera and become instantly entranced with what I see when looking at certain rocks and minerals.
With some of those cut slabs of rock, it is almost as if I am viewing the world as it existed millions of years ago, and a image of that landscape that was captured within the rock itself.
It can become absolutely intriguing to one’s thoughts!
It is also something that I will always get in the world of macro photography. “Intrigue”

The image below and one included in my “Ancient Landscapes” Series, was created from one of the many “agate” slabs that I have on hand.
It reminds me of an eruption that might have occurred millions of years ago, when the existing land was barren of any vegetation, deadly gases rising into the air, stars twinkling in the sky.
I would imagine, and would like to believe, that during all those millions of years here on earth, there was a scene somewhere that looked just like this.
Possible? Who knows, … but I like dreaming!
