Biltmore Estate WInter
I am powerfully drawn to photograph the stages in nature’s life cycle: emergence, growth, dissipation, and dormancy. The expansive grounds of the Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, North Carolina, is a terrific place to experience and observe these stages, each in their own right, and the passing from one into another. In the winter, life forms have either passed away or lie dormant. The images here convey the experience of nature in repose, in the quiet and stillness that prevail until its awakening in the spring, when new life begins to emerge.
