Wednesday morning, the girls just left for their last day of school before the Christmas break. As I was firing up the computer to begin my day I looked to the East out my office windows and saw this... Still in my robe I ran to get my Nikon D300 and outside to take this. There are houses on the ridge and I didn't want to include them, but left the top of the power lines in. The colors were incredible, as they are frequently this time of year. Looks almost like an orange tidal wave or a star that's way too close to Earth!
I have to try and get up earlier and get out there with the big cameras!
Richard Coda has been photographing since he was a teenager. In college he fell in love with images made with large format cameras. Starting with a 4x5" view camera, he soon moved up to an 8x10" camera and, most recently, has begun working with an 11x14" camera.
While he photographed landscapes early in his career, recently his work has focused on that which has been overlooked, forgotten, or looked at, but not seen. He finds compositions where others see the ordinary, or nothing at all. While concentrating on black and white for most of his career, Richard has found a new love for color, using color as the subject, while still retaining his classical aesthetic for form, line and tone.
