Dreamtime

This image chose me, I think. The harmonious colors, the complete abstractness of the piece, all drew me in and held me spellbound.
First the placement. This could be an aerial shot or it could be the closest of macros. After spending some time trying to decide which it was, it suddenly just didn't matter. I was drawn in by the strong blue shape; was it a grove of trees or the print of a horseshoe? Or something else. Whatever it was, here were nature's patterns writ large (or small). The pronounced blue shape worked well with the greens and tans and other milder blue areas. This is a restful yet inquisitive piece. I could spend hours enjoying the patterns textures and objects contained within this image. Were those patterns tributaries of a giant delta or were they tiny ripples at the edge of a stream, or maybe a sea.
The artist found and photographed a most interesting and pleasing subject. It was my pleasure to appreciate it closely.

Yes. Dreamy. Even finding real context here is a challenge. The colors are wonderful. The wonder is inescapable. Google earth meets an Ambien martini.
