The Raging Waterfall

There are very few images that show the power of water like a waterfall! The picture on the right is the perfect example of this concept. The sun-kissed green grass, trees, and boulders, perfectly frame the photo. The gushing water, along with the delicate spray, make this the perfect image to celebrate summer. How are you decorating for the summer season? Whether it’s gushing waterfalls, mountain lakes, or lazy rivers, you’re sure to find the perfect water element to fit your space!

The Snowcapped Mountain Backdrop

Snowcapped mountains in distanceLooking in the distance on a warm spring day, I was struck by how much snow was still on the mountains. I like the contrast of the snowcapped peaks on a warm, sunny day-so I decided to snap this photo! The cool shades of blue, pops of white, and earth tones make this picture the perfect trifecta! This is the perfect time of year to snap a similar photo of your very own. Once you snap your picture, all that’s left is to figure out where to display it. Depending on the size you choose, you could put it on a shelf, display it in a living room, or use it to add a bit of color to a hallway. No matter how you decide to display it, you can create a custom piece of art that will look great in any of your spaces!

The Other Side of the Mountains

Other side of the mountains_landscapeIt’s amazing how much a landscape can change when you cross geologic features. Whether it’s an ocean, river, or mountain range, you will inevitably see a change in geography. This became quite noticeable on one of my recent travels (business related) where I took this great landscape photo (right). I love the sparseness of the landscape and the various shades of orange and green that are the epitome of Fall foliage. These types of photos are great for showcasing the wide variety of landscapes in your area. Whether you travel near or far, you’ll be sure to find a great landscape that is worthy of display in your space.

The Mountain Above the Trees

Mt. RainierAfter walking some distance from the entrance of my local wildlife refuge I turned around and was greeted by a wonderful sight: Mount Rainier! I wasn’t expecting to see such a great view, so of course I had to take a photo. This photo-op brings up something very few people think about as they’re out photographing various locales: turn around! So often we’re concentrating on what’s in front of us that we don’t realize there might be something even greater behind us. So remember, when you’re out snapping great pictures be sure to pay attention to all your surroundings, not just what’s in front of you. If you do this, you’ll not only get great shots, but may even get a beautiful photo you weren’t even expecting.

Frame a Window

Ornate windowAs I said in a previous post, I work in a cubicle with no window. Besides creating my own window, another solution is to frame the picture of a window. I took this photo of an ornate window on a clear, sunny day. Not only will I have a new piece of art in my cubicle, but I’ll also have the illusion of a real window. Whether the window you use looks out onto the sea, a mountain, the sky, or somewhere else, you, too can create an awesome view!.
