View "Columbia Rhythm" at Fine Art America website.
"Columbia Rhythm" was taken on an early fall morning at the Columbia Historic State Park, Columbia, California, a preserved gold mining town in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The shot is of the entrance of a small cabin, its doors and walls of unpainted raw weathered wood; the uneven and time-worn sagging counterpoint to the subdued elegance and Eastern style transplanted to the raw wild gold settlement.
Larry Darnell's work brings remote natural locations to viewers who wish to share quietude, serenity and the beauty of these places. For over a decade he has been combining photography and digital tools to create images that have the feel and quality of traditional paintings and prints. "Columbia Rhythm" is part of a series of photographs of historic sites which are presented as documentary photographic images as opposed to art pieces.
His work has appeared in Central California galleries, juried exhibitions and is owned by a number of American collectors. He lives in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Central California.
