Sandra Bronstein says, "It is my pleasure to share the beauty of the natural world and its magnificent wildlife as seen through my lenses for the last 25 years.
Having been intrigued by many different elements in both the manmade and natural world, I strive to discover new and different ways to capture these varied elements. These wonderful places have provided me, and now you, a view into a world that continues to change. Simply put, we are viewing but a moment in time. Please enjoy your travels through this beautiful world. May your journey prove to be as exciting and fulfilling as it was for me the moment the shutter clicked."
Sandra is not only an extremely prolific photographer, she is also very artistic with a keen eye for what looks brilliant. Sandra Bronstein is one of those photographers that stand out from the start.
"This wonderful old barn was home for many years to the Dahmen family in Uniontown, Washington, near the beautiful Palouse area. One of the interesting things was the fact the property was surrounded by metal wheels which Mr. Dahmen collected and welded together for years. It was truly a life's mission which, sadly, was not completed. Since the property's sale, the barn has been renovated. The Dahmen Barn located in Uniontown Washington is well known for it’s 1,000 antique wagon and tractor wheel fence. Located along US-195, the Dahmen Barn is home to many artisans who show their wares and have shops within the barn. This image was taken many years ago when the barn still had all the implements and tools laying around. Today, as time marches on, this no longer exists. "
A very apt title for such an elegant bird!
"The iconic Castle Geyser in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, has been photographed endlessly for many years. Winter seems to define the power of the geyser basins in Yellowstone more than any other season. Since Yellowstone appears to create its own weather patterns, no two days are the same and the appearance of any feature is greatly altered by light,steam,fog and clouds. This view of Castle Geyser is perhaps my favorite with the glorious sunrise light being filtered by the steam and clouds of dawn allowing gentle reflections onto the geyser runoff. The snow and ice blanket Yellowstone in the winter creating wonderous patterns in the geyser basins as the heat from the geothermal features break through the earth's surface. Winter can appear foreboding and yet is beautiful in its own way."
My own choice of a so-called favorite from the portfolio of Sandra Bronstein is a minimalist image. I admit that finding a true favorite was nigh on impossible as it is with many artists, and yet this image speaks to me in the most beautiful way.
Now take a break, grab yourself a cup of whatever is your poison and be sure to enjoy your visit to this very talented photographer's portfolio!
