It is a single time exposure. The moon will soon set over the Gulf but not before a thunderstorm drops a few bolts below. This photo has always been very symbolic of the dual nature we see so much in the universe. On the right, the stillness of the Gulf is seen as the moonlight shimmers across the water, the light stopping at the base of the sand. On the left is a storm dangerous to anyone caught underneath its fury. The towering clouds are lit up both by the setting moon and the lightning, revealing the complex structure of a Florida summer storm. Above it all, the stars blanket the sky; the ultimate appearance of calmness, an ending to a captivating poem. The stars watch over us day and night, on happy mornings and stormy nights, they are ever present. Another inspiration behind this photo is a quote by the father of modern painting, Paul Cézanne, “Art is a harmony running parallel to nature.” He boldly expresses that the purpose of art isn’t always to imitate nature, but to dwell in its own eternal beauty alongside nature. I picture art and nature being two butterflies flying across a meadow, each butterfly on its own destiny, each with a different yet stunning array of colors, but both possessing priceless value.
