New Abstract Photograph: Harmony

Fine Art Abstract Photograph: Harmony by Nat Coalson

This is another fine art abstract photograph I made in the underground cellar of a historic building in Barcelona, Spain.

The picture is dominated by three large, sweeping curves. The interiors of the curves are filled with luminous fields of colour in blue, pink and purple hues. Around the outside of the frame, the colours blend into rich gold and green hues.

Imagery can evoke powerful emotions and memories. Sometimes, as with this picture, the feelings are pleasant and harmonious … yet ethereal and undefined. The abstract forms presented here are reminiscent of beautiful things like flowers, jewelry and sunsets.

You can own this abstract photograph as a fine art reproduction in any size and on any material. This picture is especially beautiful as a large, mixed media Original on canvas, hand embellished with acrylic paint and metallic leaf. It also looks amazing printed on metal!

New Landscape Photograph: The Bass Rock

Landscape Photograph: Bass Rock, Scotland by Nat Coalson

This landscape photograph shows Bass Rock, off the coast of North Berwick, Scotland, with a lone gannet flying in the blue sky.

Bass Rock is a steep-sided volcanic rock, 107 meters (351 ft) at its highest point. It is home to the world’s largest single rock colony of gannets, with over 150,000 birds. Viewed from the mainland, the surface of the rock appears white due to the number of birds and their droppings.

The rock is currently uninhabited, but historically has been settled by an early Christian hermit, and later was the site of an important castle, which was later used as a prison.

The island was in the ownership of the Lauder family for almost six centuries, and now belongs to Sir Hew Hamilton-Dalrymple.

The Bass Rock Lighthouse was constructed on the rock in 1902, and the remains of a chapel are located there.

The Bass Rock features in numerous works of fiction, including Robert Louis Stevenson’s Catriona and The Lion is Rampant by contemporary Scottish novelist Ross Laidlaw.

I made this fine art abstract photograph at the Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona, Spain.

The picture is bold and dramatic, dominated by multicolored squares of varying sizes set against deep black. This image is well suited as decorative art for contemporary interiors.

Sony mirrorless cameras: The best for my photography

Sony A7rSeveral years ago I switched camera formats. I am now a dedicated Sony shooter. Here’s the story of how that happened.

For years I had been shooting with Canon DSLR systems. I was happy with the image quality from my 5D Mark II but always struggled to accept the large size, weight and cost of the components of this system.

I wanted a system that was small, light and portable because I travel frequently and carry my camera with me everywhere.

But for a long time, I couldn’t find a small system that offered the capabilities I needed, especially when it came to the quality of the captured images.

That has all changed with the latest offerings from Sony.

New Scenic Travel Photograph: Ronda y Puente Nuevo

Scenic Travel Photograph: Ronda y Puente Nuevo by Nat Coalson

I made this scenic travel photograph at sunset in the village of Ronda, province of Malaga, Spain, during a two-week private photo tour with a client.

People have lived in the area around Ronda since prehistoric times. The town itself was founded by early Celts in the 6th century BC. The current town is of Roman origin and in the 2nd century BC received the title of city from Julius Caesar. Many centuries later, Ronda was conquered by the Islamic Berbers and served as the capital of a small kingdom. Islamic domination of Ronda came to an end in 1485 when the city was conquered by the Marquis of Cádiz.

Ronda was heavily affected by the Napoleonic Wars and the Spanish Civil War. Ernest Hemingway is believed to have modeled a story in ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ after events that occurred in Ronda.

The Puente Nuevo (‘New Bridge’) is one of three bridges that span El Tajo gorge, the deep canyon dividing the town. Building the bridge started in 1751 and was completed in 1793. It towers 120 meters (390 ft) above the canyon floor. The chamber beneath the central arch has been used for a variety of purposes, including a prison. During the 1936-1939 civil war both sides allegedly used the prison as a torture chamber for captured opponents, killing some by throwing them from the windows to the rocks at the bottom of the gorge.

New Abstract Photograph: The Sultan’s Mystique

Fine Art Abstract Photograph: Artigianale IV - The Sultan's Mystique by Nat Coalson

I made this fine art abstract photograph deep in the underground cellars of a historic building in Barcelona, Spain.

Prominent visual features include bright fields of warm gold and copper hues punctuated by subtle grid patterns. A large square, formed of smaller blocks, creates a strong focal point.

A truly exotic image, this evokes emotions of warmth and nostalgia, a comfort in familiar memories of good times in the past and a gentle reassurance that intrinsic beauty is timeless. Even when old, crumbling and tarnished, the pride of craftsmanship and an appreciation of the finer things in life remain.

Contemporary interiors such as hotels and luxury private residences come alive with the enchanting beauty of this abstract imagery.

You can own this artwork as a mixed media Original on canvas, which I lovingly embellish by hand using acrylic paints and metallic foils.

Also available as a fine art print in any size and on any material. Licensing for digital display may also be considered.

New Travel Photograph: The City Comes to Life

Travel Photograph of Barcelona, Spain: The City Comes to Life by Nat Coalson

I made this photograph of the Plaza de España, in Barcelona, Spain, from the roof of a nearby building.

The Plaza de España was built for the 1929 International Exhibition and is one of Barcelona’s busiest and most important squares.

In the foreground, the lights of cars passing in a roundabout create dynamic streaks of colour. In the center of the traffic circle are a fountain and statues.

In the background of the photo, the Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina can be seen leading to one of Catalonia’s finest museums, the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC). The streaks of eight spotlights create a corona effect in the deep blue sky.

The Avinguda also leads to the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, which can be seen as a pink glow in front of the building in the upper left. On summer evenings, crowds gather at the fountain to watch the display choreographed to classical music.

Prints of this photograph are available for purchase in any size and on any material.
