Vinography Images: Morning Dew


Morning Dew
It often comes as a surprise to most people that I happen to have a degree in fine art photography. I absolutely adore the medium, and this picture is a great example of why. We move through our daily existences that involve the processing of an incredible amount of visual data. We see beautiful details like this every few seconds of our waking lives. But only photography, with its ability to silently solidify our vision and force us to see again, can really harness this beauty for our appreciation. For as much as we see things like this, we never see them quite as the camera does. -- Alder Yarrow

This is so true of the difference I feel while running as opposed to walking through the woods. The sensation of speed has its charms--everything rushes past you as you're only focused on finding a firm foothold for your next step. However, when you attempt the same trail at a casual pace everything that was a blur regains its detail. To slow life down to a single frame like this photograph, we have the chance to experience this detail to its fullest.
