Strip away the colors , and you get to the gut's of the image !!!!!! I see the strength and power of nature , what elegant and stirring structures nature creates . I also see the strength , power and determination in Merriques eyes , knowing she's fighting the elements but also knowing that's Merriques own nature !!!!!! One thing this series has done for me is not only to enlighten me to both your amazing talents , and how you've both grown from the experience , it has also increased soooo very much , my admiration for both of you !!!!!! There are times as an Artist , I see Art that I just dream to be able to create myself , like this , maybe I will , maybe I wont , but at least I had the privilege of seeing such Beauty !!!!!!
Thank you Dave! You're so kind to us both. I love this black & white version, it's much stronger in my opinion.
You're quite welcome !!!!!! In this case , I actually prefer the color version . It moves me in a much more emotional way !!!!!! There's also this thing in my mind about the warm colors and knowing Merrique is so cold !!!!!!
