As a Northwest native I especially love the current production with the wonderful nature theme - this production, in my opinion, is unsurpassed. I'm also a photographer who loves to hike, and I was inspired the past couple of weeks to go out and see if I could come up with some photographic interpretations of the four works in the Ring cycle.
I was lucky enough to be in the right places at the right times and I have four photographs that, for me, evoke this production of the Ring. Here are my photographs along with some brief notes:
Das Rheingold - That huge tree makes me think of the World Ash tree. And we all know where the rainbow goes.....
Die Walküre - I see the clouds swirling around the Valkyries as they race to the top of the mountain. (This photograph just won, a couple of days ago, an Editors' Choice Award from the National Association of Photoshop Professionals).
