River Scenes in Color

There is an ebb and flow of light and life along a river.  The colorful scenery along the river changes with rocky shores, trees, bluffs and bends that vary to enhance the beauty of the landscape.  I love to photograph rivers, and their landscape that changes from town to forest.  A weekend offers me an opportunity to hike a trail along a river and capture some snapshots of the view.

I’m inspired by acclaimed artists that have painted scenic river landscapes filled with light.  My photo essay of light and colorful river scenes includes images of river landscape art.
