    Bronze in Nature/Seasons

Our memories are often based on visual impressions over a longer time period. A single photograph cannot convey how the sun paints a scene over time, without blurring moving elements in the scene. To overcome this limitation and to be able to portray the symphony of lights I witnessed over time, I decided to capture hundreds of image files. I then spent several weeks in post carefully painting in the desired elements from each frame, to recreate the visual magic I had experienced.

Torleif Lie is an award winning fine art photographer based in Stavanger, Norway. His work captures not only the beauty of the natural world, but also the essence of a particular place. On the surface of his images the viewer can perhaps see an environmental message, or a celebration of the beauty of the natural world, but in the depth of his photographs one can sense a homage to the cultures that have inhabited these extraordinary locations for millenniums, the true essence of what is in front of us with its ancient resilience and beauty.
