Rock Castles - photograph used with permission from Sean Hernandez at Now2Eternity
Don't you love this image! The actual rock artist is unknown - and his work would have been lost and forgotten had it not been for the fortuitous happenstance that led to Sean Hernandez stumbling upon the "Rock Castles" left behind while they were still in tact.
He immediately set about studying the rock statues from all angles until he found the composition he wanted and then waited for the sun to work it's magic. This image completely draws me into it, giving me the feeling that I have entered another world or another time. I wanted very much to share Sean's magic with my blog readers and thankfully he was open to the idea.
There is a feeling of enchantment about Sean's images, otherworldliness too. And this IS after all a time when there are expectations of enchantment and magic afoot!!! So what better time to share the work of this lovely friend I have met on Instagram?
Sean, known professionally as Now 2 Eternity, weaves a sense of incredible beauty into nearly all his images. I have no idea how he does it, but see for yourself here on his Instagram page (which you can link to right from your computer) or mobile device. Search now2eternity
The two images shared above were taken in the Lake Tahoe area. And if you visit his gallery here, you will not only see more of his amazing images from Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area, but from the San Francisco area and Northern California as well. Click on one of the four images to see each gallery.
Now, brew a cup of tea, grab a few cookies and look for these two images shared above on Sean's Instagram page here, as they illustrate two parts of a seven part story written by Nancy at A Brilliant Distraction (you will find her here). Sean's images inspired her story, which she named "Rock Castles". I hope you will take the time to read it beginning to end. You will find yourself richer for the experience of these two artists' collaboration.
I just recently learned that Sean is a wedding photographer! Find more here! He definitely knows the best locations for those amazing bride and groom "landscape" shots in Northern California!
I hope I can persuade all of you to come join us at Instagram! It is the coolest place ever to find amazing and talented and very kind individuals with interests similar to your own. Just let me know you are there and I can direct you to some awesome people you will want to meet in both the crafty world and the world of photography!
Thank you Sean, for letting me share your images here on Gingerbreadsnowflakes!!
