Fishing at Burney Falls, Burney, California, 2008

The fisherman is small, the falls large, the contrast expressive. He is dwarfed in scale, yet our eyes go right to him because he wears a bright yellow jacket. That spot of color in an otherwise monochromatic scene is essential to meaning. If he were wearing a less vivid color, he would blend into the background and no longer pull his own weight in this image. As it stands, this photograph contrasts the power of nature to the pleasures of man.
