Enchanted Forest is a view into the complex, yet elegant structure of the eastern American ecosystem. Captured in the Appalachian Mountains early one autumn morning, Brett came upon this perfect oasis of color while hiking along a stream he was looking to photograph. “The scene immediately captivated me.” recalls Brett. “It was just too perfect. We had hiked for many miles looking to capture all of the colors we were experiencing and this was the moment that it all came together.” Enchanted Forest depicts both the grand beauty and intricate details that our amazing environment has to offer. The wide variety of colors and textures are only visible for a few short days before falling to the ground and waiting for winter to come.
Tucked away in the high country of central Colorado, this old mill was once part of a thriving city full of adventure and treasure. Now it is one of only a few structures remaining in what is now a ghost town. Accessible only by ATV, this icon of the Rocky Mountains captivated Brett while searching for old structures full of character. Using a rotating camera head, Brett slowly captured Gold Country as his optics swung left to right.
Photographed on a clear, calm evening in the soutwest desert of the United States Brett captured Circle of Life. Sitting high above the canyon below, tucked under an alcove carved into vertical cliffs rests this secret Indian ruin. The purpose of the site is still debated among archeologists along with the age but one thing is certain… the view from this secluded balcony is breathtaking. Brett sat patiently by his camera for hours as the light in the distance shifted and slowly illuminated the canyon in warm hues and soft light.
Brett has taken long exposure photography to a new level with Infinity, a rare photograph of famous Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. “I was patiently watching a magnificent sunset fall upon the arch” recalls Brett. “But I wasn’t there to photograph a sunset.” As light turned to dark the stars began to paint the sky. The Milky Way shifted from left to right as Brett aligned his camera on the sandstone slope below. Taking only a 45 second exposure and pushing his camera aperture to the limit to reduce the effects of the Earth’s rotation, Brett captured Infinity when the Milky Way was framed by this iconic landmark.
