Abstract nature art is now generally understood to mean art that does not depict objects in the natural world, but instead uses colour and form in a non-representational way. Abstraction is based on sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking.
But its a missconcept to believe that nature can not offer abstractions without human touch. The easiest way of understanding is by following this example:
Look at a tree in a way you usually do and your first thought will probably be the so called “lonely tree” theme for your shoot. But then look again at the details of the tree: the patterns of the leaves, the texture of the tree stamp, sometimes the shape of the roots. Once you look only at the picture of such parts of a tree, you begin to understand what an interesting network of colours and shapes you got. Eye caching, is it not?
Other nature abstract pictures can be discovered if you look closely at rocks, sand dunes, and even clouds.
Don’t forget: abstract nature is all about color and shapes of the details, not the entire objects.
