Blue Is the Color of Distance, Woodstock, New York, 2016

Printed on 11 x 14 archival matte fine art paper.

Edition of 10.

I was reading a wonderful book by Rebecca Solnit in which she rhapsodizes about the color of blue. The color of distance. One evening, I took an amazing walk on the dam over the Woodstock reservoir -- and watched the sun set and the birds circle and the lake shimmer. There I captured this image of the faraway nearby of water and sky and mountain -- out of focus and yet nearly touchable. I loved it the minute I saw it oasis onto my computer screen.

I still do. It evokes everything possible -- as does the text in the image from Rebecca Solnit's musings on the color blue.
