November Pond celebrates texture, movement and color

Progressive nature photographer Morgan McKenna attunes her eye into nature’s intimate moments. From the color shifts in an aspen grove, to the delicate folds of a flower, to movement patterns dancing on water, Morgan’s work brings the viewer into the moment that these gestures reveal themselves. She photographs nature’s display of light, pattern, and texture that brings one into a visceral feel of beauty. Her intricate views of botanicals, flowers, water, and landscapes help create peaceful, positive spaces. Using a variety of techniques to bring the gestures alive, these photographs give us time to BE with the beauty.

Much like a Mary Oliver poem, the viewer is asked to slow down and experience a shift in the usual scurry to notice the sublime.  Gifting ourselves these moments adds space in which to navigate the chaos that our world is going thru. Finding the safety and trust that sits in nature, which allows nature to keep expressing beauty and goodness, helps us do the same.

Bringing the wonder of a child to her work, Morgan shares “I’m a native of Colorado and have been taking photos since I was little.   I’ve always loved focusing close in on pieces of a landscape, whether the tiny details of a plant or flower, reflections in a pond, or a window of light in a forest.  I shoot early in the morning or late afternoon to catch colors at their deepest.  Most often I go for the sharpest images I can, but occasionally, I move the camera slightly while taking the photo just to achieve an impressionistic effect. These “in capture” pieces are created in real time without digital enhancement.  Blue Forest is an example of this movement technique.”

a poem by Mary Oliver

Every day

I see or I hear


that more or less

kills me

with delight,

that leaves me

like a needle

in the haystack

of light.

It is what I was born for –

to look, to listen,

to lose myself

inside this soft world –

to instruct myself

over and over

in joy,

and acclamation.

Nor am I talking

about the exceptional,

the fearful, the dreadful,

the very extravagant –

but of the ordinary,

the common, the very drab,

the daily presentations.

Oh, good scholar,

I say to myself,

how can you help

but grow wise

with such teachings

as these –

the untrimmable light

of the world,

the ocean’s shine,

the prayers that are made

out of grass?
