Kiva Ladder to the Sky

Kiva Ladder to the Sky

I have an image embedded in my brain of a ladder magically reaching upwards into the sky. Somewhere in my psyche, this idea can be traced back to two sources: memories of the Bible story, Jacob’s Ladder, from Catechism classes and later, from a painting by Georgia O’Keeffe entitled “Ladder to the Moon”. Yeah, it was just a daydream I fancied from childhood through my adult life. So a few years ago I created my own mystical ladder in the sky using two separate images and Photoshop. The result was a bold, bright conceptual photograph entitled “Kiva Ladder to the Sky”.  It’s proven to be a successful microstock image – and a large fine art version hangs in my home!

That little voice inside of me prodded, “take the picture, take the picture!” Luckily I was a backseat passenger that day, with my camera by my side. Of course the driver was trying to make good time and had no intentions of pulling over on the side of the highway so I could snap a photo. So I did the next best thing. I rolled down the window, braced my lens against the onslaught of rushing air, held my breath and shot off as many photos as I could before the big-sky landscape was gone from view. I knew most of the images would probably be blurry with motion, but I had to take the chance. So glad that I did. I was rewarded with one perfect photo and “Big Sky Clouds” has now become my top-selling microstock image! Image title: …
