This award-winning image is one of Pamela Goodyer’s favorites created in her home state of New Jersey. This extremely vibrant piece of art will gain quite a bit of value over time. It is one of her top ten images.
Pamela Goodyer puts a very high value on this peace, and that is not a typo. This image was created just a few months after the passing of her dear mother. To this day, she will tell you with tears in her eyes that losing her mother was the hardest thing she has ever done or will do in this lifetime. This was the very first long exposure image she created on her first photography outing after her mother’s departure.
This evening the artist was standing on the beach in the open air while the sun was setting. She grounded herself to the earth to gain healing energy and connect to her mother. Out in nature, where there are no humans for a distance, at one with nature is when she felt a small amount of peace for the first time this day. She knew her mother would be so proud of this image she created, and she instantly deemed it one of her favorites.
It is not not only the dynamic image that makes it her favorite. It is almost always a combination of the creation’s experience that turns the moment into a profound experience. Connecting to earth and guiding forces, including her mother, is where she gets her creativity bursts. This was a very intense night of creation.
It was such a fabulous night that Pamela stayed on the top floor in the penthouse suite of the Flanders Hotel. A very high-end hotel with great character and charm. The two-bedroom 3 fireplace condominium-style room was overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Ocean City, New Jersey.
