What I find most enjoyable about my work is the solitary moment of capturing a landscape in its purest form. No one is there but me. I immerse myself in the scene. As my process continues, I digitally process it in my computer, and I get to enjoy being there again. and...I get to look at it and recall a wonderful solitary moment surrounded by nature.
Landscape photography is the primary subject on my website ldarnell.com [in process] where I also explore the work of other photographers and painters, and show my work. I have been greatly influenced by impressionist landscape painters. A significantly larger portion of my work is available to view at flickr.
The images posted here include locations in Norway, Washington, California and Oregon. I have spent years documenting Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where I live.
