Hazy Sun Images have over 10,000 images online, specialising in bold, simplistic imagery, sometimes very colourful and emotional.

The images come from Tim's travels but also from ideas that he has. Tim has a creative streak that allows ideas to be set up and created in photographic form. That could be a simplistic silhouette that touches on a child like level, or an uncluttered graphical form that jumps out at you from the page.

Hazy Sun are deeply involved in the garden industry when in the UK and like to bring the artistic flavour into their garden imagery

A recent quote from a client: " the images are beautiful, they are exactly the sort of the thing I was looking for! And it helps for us too that you seem to understand life from the same point of view as us, it makes things a lot easier."

Here is a link to their online search facility

"Sanibel Mourn" by Fine Art Photographer Eric Auffhammer is a paean rendered in sea, sand, and sky to the forlorn beauty of Florida’s Sanibel Island. This procession of fine art photography images beckons the viewer into a mysterious world whose secrets are told in the poetic silhouettes of driftwood, the receptive expanse of shore, and the wistfully sighing tides that rock the island to an eternal lullaby. Drawing on his profound connection to the island, the artist endeavors to impart a portion of its mystery, peace, and poignancy while inviting the viewer to discover the personal meaning that the images hold for them.

Through the haunting display of light and shadow, the unusually hued harmony of fresh water and salt water, and the ever-shifting configurations of form, the artist evokes the island’s many moods and honors her rich history as a refuge from the rush and crush of modern life. The inclusion in the images of people and wildlife exert a subtle but humanizing influence and hospitality that calls the viewer to hear and contemplate for themselves the siren song of Sanibel’s spiritual presence, a presence that sings of loss, longing, and love.
