Kat Sloma's Photo Heart Connection January 2012

Roche Harbor Road, San Juan Island, Washington
Kat Sloma, artist and photographer had an idea in January - and it's a very good one!

The idea: At the end of each month, review the images you worked with in that month for the one that gives you the strongest connection to your heart and soul. Write about that connection to the image in a blog post or in a photo description on Flickr, then link into the monthly link up. You can get to know the other photographers seeking the same connection, by visiting the links and reading their experiences. We will find our kindred spirits.

This is one of my favorite images from January. It was taken during one of our increasingly scarce snow falls - I had been scheduled for some days off during the storm and this was the first day I had to get back to work. I love the semi-artistic quality that I infused into the image - it reminds me of the stark, cold beauty of snow falls and how the sky seems large and seriously grey while the bareness of the trees and bushes can give a burst of color here and there in an otherwise white landscape

  8. Mmmm, this is a beauty. Even in the cold, I want to follow this path to discover where it leads. Lovely infusing the trees with color in the stark snowscape.

  9. Marie, how beautiful! That expanse of white sky makes the snow look even colder, and your processing is just fascinating. The texture of the image makes me think of a snippet of film from an ancient newsreel or movie.

  12. This image speaks of winter-its barren feeling and rawness. Well captured and I can see why you selected it for PHC.
