Description A rainbow appears following a late afternoon shower at a lily pad covered mountain lake reflecting Utah’s Hayden peak (high Uinta mountains, USA) as mid August wildflowers spread their color around the shoreline and surrounding meadows.
David Kocherhans, Utah Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement My passion for photography comes from a powerful affinity and affection for the beauty of the natural world. I am continually amazed by nature’s unique ability to transform in a way that ordinary things can suddenly become extraordinary for a few moments with the infusion of a particular lighting, a droplet of water, a passing storm, a temperature extreme, a rising or setting sun, a change of the seasons, etc. Even the most ordinary and mundane subjects in the natural world have a period when there is some extraordinary beauty, and I love searching out and discovering those moments. Many of the subjects of my photos are not remarkable or majestic -- they are not the kind of thing you would stop the car for. They are often isolations of some ordinary subject in a remarkable moment of beauty.
To me, experiencing the natural beauties of this world is both spiritually healing and mentally rejuvenating. I hope you find similar inspiration through my work.
