It snowed, it snowed some more, and then it just flat snowed. Right at sunset the clouds moved on and the sun sank into the trees in a blaze of color.

Locutus Visum Nebula
*(Latin for Speak Visual Nebula)

~Nvidia Speak Visual Submission~


Before the dawn of time the Cosmos spoke visually and continues to do so with its myriad forms of creation. Among the exponential visual expressions created in the universe one, sentient beings, endowed with the powers of mental and physical (visual) creation initially created myth and applied logic to better express their understanding of the visual universe. Long before organized language systems were developed, cognitive beings communicated visually, using body language such as gestures and more complicated body movements to represent concrete and abstract concepts. It was a natural development for them to apply such concepts using graphic representations. At first such representations were simple images scratched and/or painted in the soil, on rocks and other available natural resources. Eventually, written languages developed based upon these simple visual representations. Among other ancient civilizations, the Egyptians developed hieroglyphics, a beautiful and complex visual representation of their spoken language. Archaeological discoveries reveal that from the earliest times humans demonstrated an obsession with, what they considered, the supernatural elements of the sky. The night sky obviously held a special fascination for all ancient cultures for it is copiously represented in much of their visual arts. In fact, a direct relationship can be traced from the most ancient civilizations to contemporary ones revealing how visual communications, or speaking visually, shaped the course of history and directly spawned a wide array of technology which eventually created a global and, most assuredly, a universal technology based upon digital communications. Speaking visually has never been as essential as it is today. The Cosmos has thus endowed one, perhaps myriads, of its creations with the ability to see or examine itself and reflect itself back into its creative womb by speaking visually… The image I created focuses upon the aforementioned creative processes of the Cosmos. A star-birthing nebula, deep within the womb of a jetting quasar galaxy, is alive with visual communication. Even to the astronomically uninformed, the image speaks visually to any viewer. This is accomplished by the particular use of graphic elements including color, lighting, form, and the placement of elements within the piece to create a sense of drama and movement in an otherwise static image. Speaking visually, by incorporating these elements in this image, enables me to speak to the body, mind, and soul of the viewer and, hopefully, inspiring them to be likewise creative. This is, after all, the primary purpose of speaking visually. Visual representations energize static concepts, endowing them with the ability to transcend static representations, thereby creating new ideas which have and shall transport sentient beings beyond the threshold of physical experience to new frontiers of mental and moral development . . .

That morning in december I woke up with the most beautiful scenery around me. I made some pictures along the canal. There was no snow, but it had been freezing so hard that every drop of moisture was frozen on every surface.


I submit this picture to :iconnaturephotographer: 's contest 'Linking The Seasons' so I have to link this picture to an opposite season: [link] a picture of a beautiful summermorning landscape made by one of my dA-favourites *jchanders

I've changed the category of this picture in order to submit it as an entry for Nature's Reflection Contest (more info: [link] )
