Abbott's artistry extracts what is meaningful from the ordinary, design from clutter, harmony from chaos. Our eyes are directed to the beauty and symmetry present in what could be seen as ugly and worthless, and through his craftsmanship as a photographer, the clarity of his focus can touch us deeply emotionally.
The image captured is so tranquil - and moody/atmospheric. It draws me in - and makes me want to be there. I love the subtleness of the soft tones - and love that the image is not busy - but still has great focus points with the mountains, posts, beautiful clouds/sky and the reflections in the sand. Its beautifully printed - as alot of its high key, but you've captured all the highlight detail so well. I love the contrast its printed at too. The way you've framed it and the choice of a black frame - fit together so well.

A Few Words About me

I have had a love affair with art and photography for more than sixty years.
