  1. I’m just going crazy here with wonder and love of your art!

  2. Reblogged this on Finding My Voice and commented:
    Jane Lurie has an amazing and beautiful photographic talent. Enjoy.

  3. How very beautiful ! Great photography !

  4. How beautiful! One of my favorite places to visit is Colorado and Aspen is a favorite stop! Thanks for taking me there as it has been over a year since I have been there!

  5. These are beautiful pictures, Jane. You seem to be very aware of the beauty around you while on these walks.

  6. Every step here would be breathtaking. Jane, these are sublimely beautiful!

  7. I especially like all the photos of the tree trunks. Beautiful hues in them.

  8. Exceptionally beautiful images….your landscapes are exquisite – and I love the way you just bring out the lighting…beautiful!

  9. Beautiful photos of Maroon Bells. Being a Colorado native, I’ve never made the trek there.

    • Hi David, I hope you are safe from all the flooding. Thank you for your comment and I do hope you make it to Maroon Bells sometime. It is magnificent. It would have been even better with snow, but I am too early for that treat.

      • We’re quite safe from the flooding. Wintertime would seem to be the ideal time to visit there, especially when it’s bone-chilling cold. That’s when you have the place nearly to yourself.

  10. Love the brow!
    Love all the contrast… Lush green! Linda

  11. Love them all…thanks for “taking” me there.

  12. OMG…these r magical….WOW!!! Obviously was a great morning!! Fabulous!!

  13. Absolutely beautiful! I was only there once for half a day in autumn, but I know it’s a place to which I want to return.

  14. Jane, the colors are so beautiful. Different greens than we have here.The reflections are amazing, and the aspens are wonderful.

  15. Absolutely beautiful photos. We love that part of the country.

  16. Beautifully done Jane! Methinks the aspens may find a home in Whitefish sometime soon :-).

  17. The reflections are great but the aspen pictures are outstanding!

  18. Reblogged this on HJS-likes and commented:
    Beautiful! I can’t resist photos with such great reflections.

  19. These are amazingly beautiful- the reflection & the light are superb !
    Great abstract of the aspens too!

  20. Beautiful, Jane! Although the landscape photos are wonderful, the aspen photos make me wonder what else we look at that we don’t really “see.” Suzie

  21. These are so incredibly beautiful. What a great job on the abstract! Each one is lovely –
    great work!

  22. Stunning Jane. I have to get myself to Colorado.

  23. Just wow! Love the aspen abstract so much.

  24. Wonderful pictures, Jane. Love them.

  25. Beautiful, Jane. The depth of color is great.

  26. All are gorgeous, Jane, but I love Aspen Abstract the most. That and your Emerson quote about patience.

Love to hear what you think...
