  1. Jane, the colors and composition in these pictures are stunning. I found you from a pingback from Frank’s post about colors. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day.

  2. OMG! Amazing pictures! All of them!

  3. Your collection of pictures are really amazing, just so beautiful ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ

  4. Beautiful! Absolutely stunning work !

  5. Great shots, nice colors, love it !

  6. Hi Jane, you’ve put together another beautiful series. I could have sworn I commented a week ago but I guess that was all in my head. The sunflower is a stunning opener, so strong! And those feet on the smooth rocks, I love that shot. You were smart to see that!! The falcon is amazing…the rowboat is so appealing. You always do excellent photos of produce but that “Watercolors” image – wow, so cool. Really nice. And the barrels, are perfectly framed. Just straight-on! The wall, the ariels, and the sunset are equally attractive. What a colorful tour! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Winter sunset. Such a great, realistic view. Thank you for sharing,

  8. They’re all wonderful but I’m drawn to robes and feet. Go figure since I’m always taking photos of flowers and animals. And we’ll long remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

  9. Absolutely stunning pics. So bright. So colorful.

  10. Beautiful.
    Apart from the colours, the framing is also really beautiful here, Jane.

  11. One of my very favorite posts of yours. Simply stunning with the perfect dedication. Thanks for your colorful take on the world!

  12. Stunning photographs, Jane. So much color of life here, and a beautiful tribute as well. Wow. An enlightening series, a perfect feeling to combat the sadness and to celebrate the brilliance of the Notorious RBG.

  13. A feast to the eye. (My favourite is probably robes and feet, which looks like to be set in Angkor?) That very little boat I may have seen on Fisherman’s wharf…
    Keep shooting my dear…

  14. Very nice and beautiful capture ! Well done ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Love the different perspectives in each photo with the bursts of colors. They are so welcome in the dreary grey cloudy days that we have been witnessing here!

  16. You paint with your eyes Jane and show us the beauty that surrounds us always. Thank you. RIP RBG

  17. Despite the darkness, there is always the possibility of brightness if we look. That is easy to see in your wonderful images, Jane. The darkness does seem to be enveloping us but there is always a weakness and we have to find that.

  18. These were such beautiful and vibrant pics! I loved the winter sunset and sunflower. This was such a great series of photos in honor of such a bright and light in our freedoms. Great job! Thanks for posting ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Wow. Landscapes, macro, wildlife, abstracts; all stunning. Is there anything you don’t excel at? RIP, RBG.

  20. What a palette of color. Especially like the falcon’s close-up and the sunset. (The sunset at Kiawah?)

  21. Fabulous photos. I keep repeating myself! Love the calendula, the falcon and the sunflower. You have to most amazing eye for detail.

  22. You have such an amazing eye, Jane. I am drawn to the painterly effect in Americaโ€™s Escape and the wonderful composition and color contrast in Calendulaโ€™s Las Bow. Iโ€™m so saddened that RBGโ€™s passing will be so politicized.

    • Thanks so much, Susan. I felt lucky to have been in Snowmass on year for their balloon fest and as you may know, I love flowers that are past their prime. Such troubling times but let’s be thankful for all RBG accomplished for us.

  23. I think this is one of my fave posts of yours ever. I’m a magpie for bright colours and this captured my attention in the most joyous way.
    RIP RGB ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  24. Stunningly beautiful photography, Jane! โค๏ธ

  25. A stunningly beautiful array of photos of the colourful world we live in, Jane!

  26. I kept going back to the falcon..the details of feathers and beak and the pretty colors of the background. All are beautiful, Jane.

    • Hi Sharon, I’m happy the falcon caught your eye in particular. That was an amazing and fruitful day at the Awendaw Bird Center. Thanks so much and hope you are safe up north. You’ve been in my thoughts.

  27. what a beautiful, STUNNING collection of photos Jane. Amazing! Feeling the loss of RBG even here in Australia i am following the election very closely. probably because of our lockdown lol!

  28. What a brilliant post, Jane. I don’t remember seeing the striking image of the falcon before. Love your tribute to RBG.

  29. Thank you for bringing some color to our black and white (en)visioned lives ๐Ÿ˜‰

  30. Off to share. Just sublime!

  31. Wonderful way of starting my day. Thank you!โค๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

  32. Wonderful colours, Jane; the sunflower gets to me the most. Also very sorry to hear about RBG, and certainly sad to contemplate the place that the USA is in at this time. Adrian

  33. Very beautiful! A cornucopia of chroma. I do ๐Ÿค “Watercolors”.


  34. great collection, Jane. I also tried a couple of times getting such a photo of a sunflower. But, I failed up to now. So often I tried, I wasn’t satisfied with the result.

  35. What a lovely saturated tribute to the amazing RBG! I kept trying to think of a way to pay homage, but came up blank. I very much like your take!

  36. Wow, beautiful shots, really! The clarity and the radiance of life in each of the photos. Such a good perspective on everyday encounters. Well done! ๐Ÿ™Œ

  37. Such a nice tribute to RBG
    And at first I was going to
    Say that I bet you had a lot of fun putting these colorful photos into a post / but then it ended with the tribute and so maybe not as fun as I thought –
    Thanks for the color splash – top three are the wall in SF, the feet in the robes and feet, and the way the falcon seems to be in sync with the flower after it…

  38. Hello Jane, great photos๐Ÿ‘ Robes and Feet: that’s incredibly beautiful, almost a painting! Greetings to California.

  39. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

  40. Jane , your choice of colors is truly fantastic, they portray such positivity , such sunflowers put immediately a smile on my face. Just as Ruth Bader Ginsburg had always such a pleasant smile even in difficult times.

  41. A perfect tribute for RBG! Thanks so much, Jane!

  42. That’s quite a falcon portrait; don’t recall ever seeing one like it.

    It’s etymologically correct for a photograph showing a sunflower’s ray florets to bear a caption with radiance in it. The words radiance, radiate, radius, and ray are all closely related.

  43. I love this visual eulogy to RBG, Jane. I gather she would smile, accept, and honor the gesture like she did her whole life, especially with her and Marty. Such a binary star solar system pair. Thank you for remembering her here in these epic shots. The riotous orange on several of them stand out as RBG simply opening her mouth to speak. Such presence. Such prowess. Such grace of refinement without ever a stuffy word in the lot. She reminds me that itโ€™s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog. And, she fought with poetic justice, a balance where the heart weighed against a feather… and I gather the feather conceded to her, and she may have even invited it for dinner after.

    Thank you for this post. I take a dep breath and nod. Rich and saturated colors. That feels like RBG.
    Amen has lost its meaning.
    A(wo)men. Awomen-hotep

    • Hello Jordan, I just loved reading your reaction to my post with its wonderful analogies so appropriate for RBG. She was a force and an inspiration who accomplished so much in her long life. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. May we hope that her good work carries on.

      • Youโ€™re most welcome. She is one of my heroes With Carl Jung, Julia Morgan, Friedrich Nietzsche, Harriet Tubman, and William Blake all tied for 1st place… or rather on my Historical Friend A-Team.

        May we hope that her good work carries on. I call RBG La Force, which in Tarot is the Strength card about natural inner animal power of voice, as deep a well of raw Nature as refined prowess in clarity of vision through voice.

  44. What a beautiful collection of colours Jane…I like how you threaded them together…and a beautiful way to celebrate Ruthโ€™ life. Sending all good things ~ hedy โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ

  45. Breathtaking sunflower photo. You must have a good camera?
    The consequences of Ruth’s passing are worrisome.

  46. Truly great pictures Jane. This IS colour! And a worthy farewell to an, as I understand, more then inspiring person.

  47. Absolute gorgeous collection of colorful images – they brighten my day! Thanks, Jane.

Love to hear what you think...
