|I don’t know if the correct words exist to fully try to explain Dana’s pictures. Yes, they are beautiful, which goes without saying. As well, they represent peace, serenity, enchantment, glory, and the words go on and on. Dana has the unique ability to create scenes we can walk in to, and stay as long as we like, just basking in the quiet beauty. From frogs, to geese, to flowers, to enchanted forests, to waterfalls, the breathtaking peace and beauty of it all makes one not want to leave, but also not to feel the need to leave. I am not an artist. I have never really been that fond of art, but this is beyond art. Each picture represents a safe, peaceful, and breathtaking scene to walk into, and beyond that, hope, joy, and, for me, an inner peace. – Ginni Humphreys|
|If there’s a photo opportunity nearby, this professional eye will find it. Dana Johnson’s award-winning photography has earned its reputation as some of the best of the best! Many of his photos are breathtaking or in some instances, like a breath of fresh air! Though his work is not limited to nature photography, it is some of my favorite. He captures what many might miss in passing or may never get to see because it’s unreachable for most of us. He gets off the beaten path and into the heart of the forest and beneath the falls. He is up early catching dawns first light; there quietly waiting for wildlife to wake up. He crawls beneath and climbs over to find the beauty of things like the waterfalls during a rainstorm as they carve their way through the canyons. His photography proves that he is patient, kind and gentle with respect to the undisturbed nature around him. He invest in quality gear, spends the added time, to go the extra mile just to be there to capture in his lens a beauty so difficult to describe. His efforts always seem to pay off! He photographs all sorts of rusty treasures nestled in briers, often silhouetted by a clear blue sky or amber hues of a setting sun. This is art to the memory keepers of the good ole days who look upon such finds. He captures the kind of pictures that brings a smile to the faces of the viewer even without them realizing it! Dana Johnson’s award winning photography is pure entertainment! –BJ Tassin|
