  1. pine tree photo = amazing
    Nature is a treasure

  2. Lovely shots Jane! I’m missing you in my reader totally. How weird! I have that happen with a few people for some reason.

  3. Gorgeous photos, Jane. And the colours are amazing, just popping out of each photo. Still happy with you LX-100?

    • Thank you, Otto. Vibrant Mother Nature. Yes! I love it- image quality is great. I need to spend more time with the menus and settings. A lot of camera in that little body! 🙂

  4. viewed this a few days ago and had to come back and let you know I appreciate your ART! wonderful

  5. Spectacular images and perfect for the theme! I love your aesthetic sense. 🙂

  6. Perfect for this theme. So colourful. love them all

  7. Love the variety of colors in these photos. Of course, I’ve always been impressed with many colors one can find in Yellowstone.
    I like your theme refresh. Very nice.

  8. Stunningly beautiful, Jane! You’ve made my day. That last image made me smile. The shadow almost looks like a prehistoric cave etching….like Lascaux. 🙂

  9. The trees and moss….really striking. I could feel this one through my eyes…though I suppose all photos do that…but this was visceral.
    Your print is here 🙂 and as soon as our Dramas du Jour abate even a little, it will be off to the framer.

    • Hi Patricia- I’m so glad the print arrived. It may be a while for the framer….fingers crossed 🙂 The mossy tree shots are among my faves from our trip to the Olympic Peninsula. Thank you so much for your ongoing encouragement. Hope you enjoy your day.

  10. Love these. I do have a favorite. Maybe two. But they are all just beautiful.

  11. Beautiful! Any suggestions for young photography bloggers?

    • Hi Nina, Thank you and I’m so glad you stopped by. I went over to your blog and enjoyed looking at your images. You have a creative eye which leads to my advice– practice the “art of seeing” all the time. Personally, I am always looking at the light, the shapes, colors and lines as I go about my day. And, I shoot a lot, as I’m sure you do. And by a lot, I mean shooting with intent.
      I am happy to “chat” with you as time goes on. Feel free to email me. It’s great that you have an interest in photography. Happy shooting!

  12. What a beautiful tribute to our planet, Jane! Beautiful quotes and stunning photos! Wonderful!

  13. Nobody does colour quite like mother nature herself.

  14. Whew! I’m glad you didn’t ask me to choose! 🙂

  15. Some of my truly favorite places on this earth; love your photo series.
