    Artist Statement

    My photo, Reflecting on Nature, was taken in August of 2007, just outside the Portland Oregon Japanese Tea Garden. My family and I had spent a few hours walking through the beautiful gardens, absorbed by nature, and I had been using that mirrored building as the background for a few shots from inside the garden walls. I was intrigued by the patterns of free flowing clouds reflected in the hard symmetry of the building. I took this image after we left the gardens and were walking by the building. I was completely captivated by the reflected color and the movement of the clouds and the angles and lines of the building. I realized that the building itself was a canvas of reflection.

    The photograph was taken using a Canon 10D with a 75-300mm lens.
