An admiration of decay

IMG_0453A week ago a friend & I headed out to a lake to capture the setting sun.  Our hope was for some intense colour in the clouds. It was an area I hadn’t been to before.

I found myself drawn to the mud flats around the lake which contain decaying dead trees. As I made my way to them I noticed animal bones & just had to photograph some of them.

I’m interested in the juxtaposition of decay amongst natural beauty. It’s visually jarring however I find it compelling.

Conventional beauty doesn’t interest me a lot, even in landscapes. So I’ll continue to seek out a different viewpoint even if I’m the only one who enjoys it.
