“Searching for new life
Rocks reaching for the Phoenix’s wings
Forgot the life they carried inside them”
This is one of the images carrying most meaning for me. First, it's a hyper-photographed location, but there aren't many photos of it looking like this. Second, to create it I had to pre-visualise the clouds movement; envision a break in the clouds letting the light shine on the ridge; prepare myself for 2 minutes and 30 second exposure, which I felt would transform the clouds as I wanted them. Finally, I waited the right moment when the sun hit the ridge, took a shot knowing that the clouds rapidly moved away, leaving me without a second chance.
Last, it has been shot in Death Valley, which is the place where I decided I wanted to do landscape photography for the rest of my life, leaving my college Professorship to do so.
