I Have No Name
A lovely little spill secreted down a short path at the BRP parking lot for Linville Falls North Carolina.
Day's End

This is a crop of the original work.  This image allows for a closer examination of the detail and meticulous care taken in selecting the hawk for addition into the sunset image that I photographed.

I captured this Mountain sunset a week ago in September at Rough Ridge on the south side of Grandfather Mountain. GFM State Park, North Carolina, USA. I was surprised to find the Autumn change in color already in motion.

I had to do quite a bit of work on this lovely hawk to get her in the right frame of mind, so to speak, for the spirit I hoped to instill into the work. So I freed her of her leg bindings and positioned her head for landing. Layering in Photoshop CC

I captured this sunset landscape in the Roan Highlands June 11, 2017. I added the owls in post production. Jane’s Bald, North Carolina, USA

Nikon D610, Nikkor 2.8D AF 20 mm, F/22, ISO 200, Gitzo Tripod, RSS head, HDR processed using 3 images exposed at 1/1.6, 2.5 and 10 seconds.

What might it be like to free oneself of the shackles of the mind? To take wing and rise above the cares of this world? To live each moment unfettered and undeterred by the concerns of the day? To go forth with a fullness of heart, partaking of an abundant and benevolent provider? My guess is that this would be all that the word ‘liberty’ is meant to express. In sharing this work here with you, it is my dream, my hope, that you and I might know all that it is to be truly free.

Beautiful Whitewater Falls drops 1500 feet in a series, crossing the border between North and South Carolina USA. Here, I’ve captured it at the tail end of a winter storm just as a new day breaks.

In pre-Chritian times, the cross symbolized the perfect melding of Spirit into the human form to become that which is known as 'The God-realized human being.'  Christian mysticism embraces the freedom found in the metaphor of the 'Resurrected Cross,' or the cross emptied of its burden, emptied of its suffering human form.  Down through history, efforts have been made to change the meaning of the cross, to warp the meaning of this symbol in the collective mind of humanity, so as to rob it of its liberty from suffering.  For instance, the Romans used the cross as a device of torture, so as to impregnate fear rather than freedom into the human psyche. Emperor Constantine made Christianity into the official national Roman religion in 325 A.D. and in politicizing Christianity, it was robbed of much of its prior esoteric influence.  The freedom and relationship offered through Christianity was driven underground as forces loyal to the Roman empire sought to 'universalize' the Christian faith under one set of rigid doctrines.   A long history of bloodshed was instituted in an effort to subvert the freedom inspiring impulse that was the beginnings of Christianity.  That original essence of the Christ-presence has always been available.   The Christ is pure and perfectly loving.  There is no fear of condemnation found in the true essence of God.  For the love of God casts out all fear.
