Dendritic Passage has been selected in three different galleries in Colorado, Maryland, and the State of Missouri. This photo was shown at Hilliard Gallery, voted the top as one of the best galleries in the State of Missouri as well as one of the top 25 galleries in the United States by The American Art Awards. 

Image Description: Dendritic Passage. A tree? Shadow of a tree? Dendritic patterns are the most common and widespread form on earth yet the most overlooked. Tree branches, roots, the geology of slope terrain, river channels, and more. This is a photo taken at a frozen pond where the autumn leaves fell to blend onto this drainage flow. We tend to overlook many things in life even when they are so obvious. I see these small details and want to capture them to share nature’s simplicity. what seems to be shadow-like is actually a drainage passage. Nature camouflage it well with the fall leaves thus the deceiving look. Art in nature that makes me look twice always finds a place in my work.

Location of Image: Gypsum, Colorado Type of Camera and Lens Used: Nikon D850 Camera Settings Used: f/2.8 -ISO 320 – f/2.8 – 1/500
