Photography of Peter Essick

Moonlight, Spruce Trees, Oulanka National Park, Finland: Peter Essick
Peter Essick has traveled the world searching out perfectly composed pictures that evoke indescribable feelings experienced out in nature. Just last week a friend and I were lamenting about how difficult it is to see an amazing moment out in nature that you want to preserve on film, but when you snap the shot it doesn't capture the true feeling found in the memory of the experience.

Peter Essick is one of those amazing souls who has the ability to fix those transitory moments found in the natural world into a type of living photograph.

Doesn't this photograph just make you think you might catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis if you stayed out a little longer?
