The sublime in nature is everywhere. When observing and experiencing the natural world, what interests me are the moments of emotional connection and even rapture that happens. This can occur anywhere and may even be when observing a simple fallen leaf or something larger like a rolling wave breaking on a quiet sea, or ocre leaves oscillating with indescribable beauty as the autumn sun catches them. It may even be a moody weather front moving with grandeur across the vast ocean. At such moments, an altered state of consciousness can occur where an experience of oneness with the observed and felt happens. This provides me with an urge to respond creatively, attempting to capture the moment where I also permit the unconscious and creative error to have their say too.
