“The Unknown Beyond” by Prentis Drew

According to the artist, Prentis Drew: “‘The Unknown Beyond’ was shot in an early morning walkabout at the Juanita Bay Park, a wetlands park near my home in Kirkland, WA.  A cold fog had settled in which gave everything a mysterious look and feel.   It was shot with a D90, 105mm, f/5.3, 1/250 sec.”

I particularly like this image because of the disjointed nature of the feelings it evokes.  I see a scene that is both inviting and unsettling.  I want to proceed into the vegetation covered boardwalk entrance-way but feel discomfort in not knowing what lies ahead.  It’s a scene from a misty, dark country manor where all is not what it seems.  Cue: Vincent Price laughter.

Well done, Prentis.

  1. Stunning! You are right in saying that it is both inviting and unsettling. I can picture the gothic manor. A great photo 🙂

    Not to worry folks. Nothing at the end of that boardwalk but birds, turtles, and photographers with great big lenses.

    Love the mood of this photo Prentis. I only find it inviting personally. The unknown is a fun adventure and you make me want to venture to Kirkland!
