  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.

    • 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!
