Photo Gallery: 10 Bob Ross Inspired Climbing Photos

Publish date:

Can you ever have too much Bob?

Nature is colorful, nature is beautiful, and above all nature is inspiring. I’m always on the lookout for colorful scenes and ways to incorporate abstract colors into a photograph. Probably too much according to my editors, who never seem to run this style of imagery. But you know what? It makes me happy, and that’s what matters most. Bob Ross had the amazing ability to take a beautiful painting and seemingly ruin it with a big black line down the center. However this bold line would become an amazing tree, which gave the image depth and turned a simple scene on canvas into something more, something spectacular. I look for that tree every time I’m out and try to step behind it to bring my canvas to life. While Mr. Ross has many inspirational quotes, I think Mr. Dylan may have said it best, “Whatever colors you have in your mind, I’ll show them to you and you’ll see them shine.”
