This photograph was taken near the bottom of a waterfall where a shallow part of the water stream was flowing over some rocks and green plants. The combination of water flowing and the colours and textures in this photograph created the artistic look I was hoping for and compliments my approach where I’m trying to communicate the beauty and artistic elements of nature in areas often being unnoticed.

Dawid Theron has always been drawn to the way nature presents it’s own “works of art”. Although he can appreciate beautiful landscapes and sunsets, his focus is towards the smaller elements: a close-up of a flower or water running over rocks, creating works of art that would normally go unnoticed. Dawid’s love for capturing these type of images doesn’t end in a natural environment; he also has a passion for architecture and other man-made objects that may present it’s own beautiful elements in the form of interesting lines, shapes, textures and colors.
The definition of Fine Art Photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. In some sense he sees himself more as an artist, with his surroundings as a canvas and the camera as his tool to capture those pieces of art he finds worthwhile sharing.
