Expressive Wildlife Imagery: Solitude

August 26, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Life's lessons from wildlife.


One of the most challenging yet rewarding aspects of wildlife photography is to create expressive images that stimulate different emotional responses, particularly as they relate to our own experiences in everyday life.


Occasionally I experience this response as I am making the photograph, but quite often it isn't until I review and reflect on the images that this parallel is drawn.


This is a photograph of a cormorant captured right before sunrise at Lake Powell, a small lake in Williamsburg, Virginia.  I think the title speaks for itself and it echoed my feelings that morning.  Most of the time, for me, nature photography is a solitary endeavor, but being alone I find myself inspired by our natural world.
