California Dreaming – Image Showcase

While I was mind surfing the Salt Creek waves, Brown Pelicans were gracefully riding the Southern California curls…

I love finding the minute details in such ordinary things. Take for instance this one single wave. There are waves rolling up the beach every few seconds and yet here is this one moment in time – a true meditation in mindfulness

Winter represents an exchange in energy – from life births death… Winter may be the most alluring of the seasons – Death is one of the most sublime beauties yet to be discovered. Understanding the evolution of a Mandala shows us that where there is life there is death and then life again – a revolving vortex of energy where matter is not destroyed – it only changes form… From this wisdom comes an unadulterated vision of not just a mortal world littered with dogma and ego – but a vast and unfathomable Responsive Universe….

Summer Photo Series

Summer represents energy, life, karma, love and existence. We are now aware of our connection to the Universe. We may not understand it, but we know through space, clarity and responsiveness that we are connected to a vast and sophisticated Cosmos.

Spring Photo Series

Spring represents birth – regeneration – new life and new beginnings…. We are born from energy and thus an insignificant but most eloquently conscious entity – an intrinsic part of the system that is everything.

Autumn…

Autumn represents beauty, wisdom, knowledge and compassion. We are here in this world as both learners and teachers. We need to be able to look in retrospect from the autumn of our lives and smile back on summer and spring. We need to be happy and satiated, alive and well…

Mindfulness in Kauai….

kokee

The perfect hike in the back country of Kauai…

Hikes are a great way to be mindful and present in the moment at hand…

What is it about water?

In this case the Pacific Ocean… There is something tranquil about

sitting and staring at the sea… A great place to meditate!

sunset7

My favorite time of day is at sunset…

There is something about the color, energy and beauty of a sunset that makes

dusk the perfect time of day to meditate and be mindful…

Spring Day in the Forest…

As you can see – I am photographing more and writing less…. the ebb and flow of creativity….

I suppose anyone can take a snap shot… I am attempting (and I emphasize attempting) to capture images as I see them while meditating and mindful in nature. The hope is to take an ordinary scene in nature and make it a little more interesting…

On the Eve of April…

I am finding that nature photography is a wonderful meditation… Never, have I been more present and mindful while immersed in nature; looking for that perfect shot that captures the beauty, magic and stillness that is my temple… I found these perspectives on the eve of April near dusk…  JCB
