Brett captured Sacred Falls on film in early autumn in the hills of North Carolina. This beautiful waterfall is relatively quiet during the late summer and early fall which gives it a tranquil feeling surrounded by golden leaves and the debris left over from the floods earlier in the springtime. “When I came upon this waterfall I was instantly captivated by it’s setting” recalls Brett. “It was framed on both sides with steep slopes and fallen leaves which gave peace to the chaos of the debris pool below.”
Gotham City was captured on a cool autumn morning in the slot canyons of Zion National Park in Utah. This unusual canyon formation captivated Brett’s attention as warm light worked its way upstream and into the cavernous room. “What really fascinated me about these pools was the crystal clear water highlighted by yellow, swirling leaves that had dropped in from the vistas above. “ recalls Brett. His inspiration to capture the movement of the water and the warmth of the rounded walls creates a sense of peace in the image.
Captured in the forests of western Washington state, this beautiful oasis was hidden among the trees. Brett spent several weeks here, exploring the hundreds of miles of trails that border the Pacific coast. “Finding symmetry and simplicity among the chaos of the forest is a challenge” recalls Brett of his experience filming Rain Water. “My goal was to focus on the small waterfalls that graced this landscape.” The calming mood of these small, rugged creeks echoes softly throughout the landscape.
