...it is not down in any map, true places never are

February 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

A few weeks back, I took this shot. 

I have always struggled to name images, but I have never felt a quote more apt then "...it is not down in any map, true places never are" from Herman Melville.
 

For nearly fifteen years I have checked this spot. That was as good as I have seen it. And we drove away. 


Its easy now, weeks later, to discuss the how's and the why's and the what if's, but I think it is a session I will always wonder about every time I see that image. 

 

Well, the other day, I was given my reprieve.  
And again, Mr Melville, has came to my aid with another title. 

"Birds... the birds... He rises!"

It was far far from perfect, but it was some sort of a relief for a bad decision. Now I have seen the white whale up close and it will haunt me but the hunt will continue :)  

 

 

Now, while it may not have been perfect, it wasnt all that terrible either ;)
 



 

Mossy was pretty stoked to have gotten outta the wind, and after years of me prattling on about the potential, he's starting to come around.

 


My only regret from that sessions was, when I was leaving my house in the dark and the cold, the case for the waterhousing stayed in the hallway. Some amazing hollow sections that will just have to wait til next time....




If you do like any of these images, dont forget, everything can be ordered through the gallery's here
