A sweep of colorful Adirondack chairs for sale in Canada. This was the true light I shot it in, but includes some pesky shadows in the foreground and background. Reworked here,.

A reworking of my rainbow chairs image, here: This processing darkened the background and saturated the already vivid colors.

Morning at the Moulton Barn near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This was converted from color to B&W in Photoshop.

Mother Nature dropped another 20 inches of snow this week. Our winter has been as cold and snowy as the past summer was hot and dry. I'm sure a lot of you are dealing with the same thing. I hope the spring mellows out. ...

Oh yeah.. this is not kansas... this is my fantasy of kansas. I've never been there. :)


Barn by flickr friend TPorter2006 Thanx Terry! You rock!

Bird and Tree Brushes by Shadowhouse Creations He is one of the most generous people on flickr as far as sharing his brilliant textures and brushes!

Sky by distressed jewell This texture is free and one of her best!

Field by colourize Don't know her but she's got some nice stock.

Update December 2010:

I submitted this photo to 'Your Best Shots 2010' Group because it shows the start of a new direction in my photography. I'd upgraded my kit (see my profile), and started a project to take landscapes of my local area. This was the first photo from that set which made it into explore - so I suppose I was taking photographs that other people liked too. The beach is one of my favorite places. Two abandoned boats lie here. The one you see is only accessible at low tide. That morning, I was up at 4 a.m. to take a short drive from my house, followed by a 15 minute walk, to get to the boat. It remains one of my favorite photos to date :)

Thanks and congratulations to TPorter2006 for including the photo in his gallery which was shown in the Flickr Blog on December 23rd 2010 - which happens to be my birthday :)

The other landscapes (which feature this boat again) are here:

I was sad as I clicked this, my last look at Venice through the view-finder since I was leaving early the next morning. I remember wondering what that man was lost in thought about . . . whether he was a local and how it might feel to live in Venice if there wasn't a deluge of tourists every year . . .

Here is a bigger view:

This image had over 175 faves as on 6th October 2013. Then in a second the fave counter went back to ZERO - along with about 1700 images on my photo stream - just like that - no warning and no recourse :o(


Simultaneously it disappeared from all those 8 galleries in which other Flickr members had kindly displayed it. Surely Flickr can have software which will warn you if you are doing something that will result in such catastrophe. I was just changing the privacy settings of some images when this happened. How come if we, so much as, want to delete a set, a warning pops up (although that action does nothing irretrievably disastrous as this did) but no warning for a click that removes all the faves from all your images, removes them from Explore (about 70 of mine got removed from Explore with this one silly action), removes them from any challenges/contests you may be participating in, and God alone knows what else !!

It seems that HBW is everywhere, even on raindrops on a window reflecting an autumn scene with a background of fall foliage bokeh.


The original image is here and the fall scene looks a lot like this.

The Grand Tetons at dawn. After I took this "big picture" shot, I focused in on the section of the image that became "Grand Tetons Grandeur". Original


Glad I took some time off from my office job to get this one!


Happy Thanksgiving to all of my USA Flickr friends. This is the card I sent out this year. All of these pics are from our trip in October to Canada, Minnesota and Wisconisn. Nice to have a great card designer like my husband in the family!
