Hult Lake is a very beautiful area with still waters and clinging clouds. I return ever so often and have continually been offered
images that I find to be not only beautiful but abstract and mysterious. —Ron S.
Ron Shufflebarger was a furniture designer and builder out of a small shop, and after a pro photographer friend introduced him to digital, he was hooked.
He found it a perfect excuse to take a break from the tedious operations of woodworking, to use photography to share his vision.
When he and his wife retired they moved to Eugene Oregon and, for Ron a whole new genre of photography confronted him. The coastal range is
very complex and doesn’t lend itself to a minimalist eye. He had to re-evaluate what he was seeing and look far into the interplay of moss, trees, light, and form.
He found a serene beauty that is unique to the area and was forever hooked. He has always loved the beauty of the landscape and the juxtaposition of the subject,
but also seeks out the interest in all venues whether street, architectural, or macro photography. He loves it all. He found inspiration from several photographers including
Dorothea Lange and Edward Weston, but the true beauty of photography is the quest for the ultimate image, and once you find it, you are off for the next one.
“These words are so true; ‘It is the journey’ that is the spiritual path and the quest is very often a meditation.” —Ron S.
