I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order. – John Burroughs
Nature speaks to us in many ways. It offers inspiration, solace, and an appreciation of the passage of time. In the isolation required during COVID, being surrounded by nature does indeed put our senses in order. These images, captured on Little St Simons Island, convey the atmosphere of century-old trees and salt marshes in early morning fog. Joyce Pearson began her journey as a photographer thirty-five years ago. What started as a way to capture travel and family experiences turned into an avocation. Her favorite subject matter includes weathered objects, abstracts, and botanicals. She has carried this interest to five continents and twenty countries. Joyce has displayed her images at galleries in the Finger Lakes region of New York State and in north central Florida. Born in North Carolina, Joyce has lived in Baltimore, Upstate New York, and currently Gainesville, Florida.
