My husband and I are retired near a lovely little central Alberta lake. My greatest joys in photography are getting close-ups of the things growing in my garden and in our woodland. Also love trees and skies. Since I also paint, I like to make my photos an artistic composition insofar as possible.
To sample my photos, try this random set. It changes almost daily.
After being active on flickr for two years or so, I found I was flooded with the goodwill of others to the point that I could not keep up with all the awards, contests, etc. I really enjoy my contacts and the comments left by any who like my photos. However, just tell me what you like( or don't) , or click on "Fave" but please do not give awards and invites. Thank you!! That will help to simplify my life.
August 08 - I announced a while ago the publication of my book of floral photos, "Sunlight on Petals" . If you or any of your friends would be interested in a copy, go directly to the Blurb Bookstore. There is a preview option that will show you some of the pages.
Oct. 2010 - the Blurb site below willl show you other photo-books done since.
ALSO -- I have some of my work in Red Bubble , a site that produces and distributes prints. If there is one or more of my photos that you would like a print of, just send me Flickr mail and I will upload it to RedBubble in full size version.

Liz Barrett says:
"Marilylle has such a wonderful way of seeing the world! She spies things that most of us miss. But we are lucky in that she shows us the beauty of things that are under the radar. She is a sensitive and thoughtful photographer, and I count myself lucky to have found her photostream."

Sravan Nerella says:
"A excellent photographer that rivals most professionals. Her photos are something to fall for, her waterdrops on petals are amazing, and the colors in every picture is pure eye candy. Every new photo is worth looking at, and you'll find out that your favorites will soon be full of her work!"

"When I think of Withrow's photos I see rolling expanses of Canadian fields and skies and the intimacy of woodland and garden walks but the heart and soul of her work is the silent poems she sees and captures hidden in the mundane and the beautiful, in leaf and flower. And it is her eye for floral elegance and the dignity of a single bloom which most frequently stop me in my tracks and make me silently praise. Beautiful art from a beautiful soul. Keep them coming Marilylle!"
