362 – Harvest Moon Mandala

Harvest Moon by Kat Sloma
Harvest Moon by Kat Sloma

Corvallis photographer, Kat Sloma, of Kat Eye Studio, created this stunning moment in time of the harvest moon…using literal imaging as well as “taking photographic elements out of context and recombining them into something new and different.” I love how it appears like the tree branches are holding up the moon and how the trees look more like a photo negative with the moon providing the ultra positive light.

About her photography she states:

Photography is meditation, expression and revelation. It’s a way to express my feelings, a way to process what’s going on around me, and a way to be in the moment. I pause to observe details in the greater world and photograph them, and I work to create the same feeling of “pause” in my photography-based art. The type of “pause” can be meditative or surprised; curious or joyful. I seek anything that stops thought for a moment, allowing the world to be perceived in a different way.

To view more of her amazing images, check out her portfolio. And if you ever happen to be in the Willamette Valley Oregon area in late October, she hosts studio as part of the annual Philomath Open Studios.

Kat’s photo inspires us to “pause” every once in a while, to just be in the moment, and to observe the details.
