Nature Beings and Glitch Eco-Art Photography

Welcome to this celebration of the life-forms who look after our plants, deserts, forests and parks. You’ll find many photographs and stories about nature beings that I have been collecting over twenty years of photographic journeys. My photography falls within the relatively new school of Glitch Ecology Art, which features visual ecological information that shouldn’t be there – but is. You can learn more about this art form in my article, housed in my Interdimensional Library.

Be sure to visit the International Nature Beings Photographers Gallery, housed on this website. It features photographers who have a focus on documenting the activities of nature beings.

Davy Jones, the Ghost Tree and the Snow Geese

The array of visible birds and also visible other-dimensional lifeforms at the 6,000 acre Middle Creek Wildlife Area (Lancaster, PA) is awesome. I told you yesterday about the Birdmen/Templars. Today I share a variety of other beings I photographed. I was ostensibly...

Snow Geese, Birdmen and Templars

One of the early spring highlights in Eastern Pennsylvania is the migration of hundreds of thousands of snow geese through Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Lancaster County.  They have a website with a dedicated webcam feed showing the number of geese moving...

Truths the Nature Beings Have Shown Me

Today I went out for a walk just to - walk - not look for nature beings to say hi to - and I consciously took a treeless route. But, of course, the nature beings had to say hi anyway. Walking around the pond in our community, I said hi to the spring cattails, who were exploding out of their winter brown containment, eager to fly away on an adventure. Here they are, happily getting ready.

Now in our community, we have a lot of friendly dogs, much loved by the residents. The nature beings are in on this type of cross-species friendships, and I find a lot of images of dogs, and dogs with people in various types of relationships. So, of course, there is a dog in this trio.

That is too funny! Great photo/story.

Look at their tatty little faces, very cheeky 😜

Today I went out for a walk just to - walk - not looking for nature beings to say hi to - and I consciously took a treeless route. But this simply resulted in my connecting to another type of nature being.

Walking around the pond in our community, a trio of cattails called and I stopped to commune. They were exuberantly exploding out of their winter brown containment, eager to fly away on an adventure. Here they are, happily getting ready.

Now in our community, we have a lot of friendly dogs, much loved by the residents. The nature beings are in on this type of cross-species friendships, and I find a lot of images of dogs, and dogs with people in various types of relationships. So, of course, there is a dog in this trio.

This photograph of a storm coming in over an Indiana plains farm is a favorite in a group show I am currently in. I submitted it as a scenic landscape. However, at a show reception I attended yesterday, several people commented on the number of faces they saw in the clouds. Now that was a surprise to me! But, looking at it with new eyes...I saw they were, indeed, correct. How many can you see? And do you see a confrontation between the powers of the dark and the light, in the direction of the two colors of clouds crossing each other? #cloudscape #stormcomingin #prairiestorm #cloudbeings ...

This is one of my favorite trees, who lives on the hill behind my apartment. He has many faces, on many sides. This is a happy side that looks down on my friend`s apartment - it is also her favorite tree. He is so happy, in the warm spring sunshine with the daffodils and scilla in bloom! Yeah for Spring! #scilla #springflowers🌼 #treebeings #daffodils #naturescenes #photographyismypassion #natureconnection #natureappreciation ...

Delighted my photo of Reflections of Love got a second place in this month`s Chester County Camera Club print competitions! The competition is for technical excellence and the judge liked the contrast of autumn leaves and shadows....

On a personal level, I am also very delighted that in preparing this print - photo taken at Council Lake, Michigan - I finally noticed that, with proper contrast control, it is revealed that there is a very large water being speaking the heart reflection from his mouth! Look closely - he is upper right, eyes formed of bushes, open mouth around point of the heart reflection. So beautiful! Nature`s love is all around us, even when we don`t see it!

A happy dog-like nature being is chomping away on a moss lunch. He lives in the Hoh Rainforest, Olympic Peninsula, Washington. A lush setting, warm and filled with many plant friends!

Laura Walthers sent in this interesting photo for our January Gnome photo share. This share is for everyone, to show each other images of gnomes you have encountered; send your photo to info@atalatoy.com

Laura is a wonderful nature being photographer and especially enjoys the gnomes. You can see more of her photos at https://www.beingenchanted.com Laura writes:

"The photo was shot with a point and shoot camera. Location: Hoh Forest, Olympic National State Park, Washington State. There are many gnomes in it and the dotted white splatters on the tree are nature sprites. Sometimes they appear with white bodies and black hair or black hats. The gnomes are very camouflaged but from a distance can be seen. It is unique in the fact I usually don’t get such a variety with the gnomes. They do live underground or preferably in wide based tree hollows. They are attracted to others with kind hearts. They love their trees, soil and minerals in the Earth. They cleanse, clear and balance nature. Once in my 3rd eye I saw them following the soldiers in battle. As the soldiers crept forward, they came from behind and cleansed the dense energies for Mother Earth/Gaia. They have brought special stones to me in places where I sat in my yard. I had placed a statue in the space to call them in. They have also appeared in the trunk of a tree in my backyard. You don’t have to be anywhere special to witness them. Love the earth, don’t use harsh chemicals, give kindness to all living things and it will create a better chance to have them visit or permanently stay with you."

We`re focusing on gnomes in January. If you have photographed a gnome as he/she appears, somewhere in nature, send it in to us at info@atalatoy.com - We`ll post some now and some the end of January. Here`s an article on a gnome I wrote - it appears in my website library. Check it out!

Here`s a painted tree I found at Graffiti Pier, Philadelphia. There are a couple of tree beings facing us. Not certain about their features...they sorta look sorta sad and resigned to their fate although not particularly happy about it! What`s your opinion about their expressions? ...
