Rothko Seascapes: Photos by Tim Burns








Rothko Seascapes: Photos by Tim Burns

Beautiful photos of seascapes resembling the paintings of Mark Rothko.
These photos where taken from Duxbury Point, Bolinas CA. They are fleeting moments, a dance of sorts, between the ocean, fog and light. These images show an ever-changing kaleidoscope of beauty, set to the backdrop of Bolinas Bay. The vantage point is from a bird’s point of view, flying above the ocean surface that is participating in a play, choreographed by nature. This is when the magic happens, with only the sound of the reef and wind, the birds dive in and around the surface of the ocean. The wind is gently skimming on the surface, with the rays of light piercing through the fog to spot light the scene, a poetic exchange. There is often a surreal luminosity where the blurring and grayness of lines across the horizon create an ethereal flow. The veil of fog is lifted only for an instant allowing the sun’s rays to spotlight a segment while the waves and tide continue their rhythmic exchange. A calm, quite, peaceful interplay, a meditation of sorts, these waning moments are evidence to the enduring beauty of Nature.
