  1. You know Cara I’ve been catching up, looking back at your photographs I have missed. I’ve been thinking about what makes your photos so different in my world of landscape and yet so perfectly what they are. I think that here, in North America, we are too used to the ‘heroic’, wild west, macho landscape, very yang, very male.
    Your vistas are of the goddess, light and misty hovering always above and beneath water. Your photos are of a more ancient and more female energy…your photos are understated and so all the more penetrating…

    • Such a lovely comment, John, and gives me matters to think about. My work has always been like this, even though I am not a particularly feminine person when seen from the outside! I always seem to be attraced by reflections, shadows, water…. the poetry I wrote when younger seems to belong in the same world. But your heroic landscapes can be astonishing. My brother went to Australia when he was about 18 saying he would be back in 6 months, and he never returned to live here – he fell in love with the vast distances of Australia, something of which I have no experience.
