Locations to enjoy quiet are few and far between these days. Fewer and fewer locations exist where you can go to avoid hearing man and/or man made objects. Even when I was in the Arctic it was common to hear small planes and on one rare occasion a jumbo jet. As an artist I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of capturing images that exemplify intangible concepts such as “quiet”. Some photos are more successful than others… the following photo, taken in Yosemite National Park, is a favorite of mine capturing the essence of quiet.
Out of curiosity….
When and where was the last time you experienced silence (no man made noises)?
