Sunrise Over the Atlantic and Lone Tree on Rock, Catherine Rogers (submitted by Brent Rogers)
Photography transferred to Christmas card
Catherine dearly loved to capture the beauty of nature through the use of the camera. She would get up early or go out late if it meant that she might capture some image that was transitory in time as the “Sunrise over the Atlantic” illustrates.
Catherine loved to capture the things of beauty and meaning that she saw in the world around her. The image “Lone Tree and Rock” was taken on a boat excursion around the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior of the shore near Bayfield, Wisconsin in 2018. The pictures that she took on this trip were among the last she was able to do on vacation travel. She indicated that this photograph not only stood for the beauty of the land and water itself, but for the struggle to hang on in the face of adversity, both that of the tree and her own fight with cancer. She included the following as an inscription with another version of the photo: “Even in adversity, there is strength, beauty and grace around us and within us.”
