What a Surprise!

I recently received a letter announcing that two of my photographs will be in the 2014 Gardeners of America calendar.  What a nice surprise!

I took these photos of tulips from my home garden in April of 2011 with my Nikon D40 and standard Tamron 18-270mm lens.

A Thanksgiving Trivet

Jeff finished this gorgeous trivet just in time for his client's Thanksgiving meal.  It is beautiful! 

I'd like him to make at least one more!

Autumn Reflections

November Wonders

I went for a walk today at Huntley Meadows, a local wetlands park.  I was feeling a bit under a deadline, since their local photography competition has already started and I didn't have much to contribute.  A long supporter of the park, I try to participate in the annual contest, so I wanted to get out to the boardwalk and take some photos.  But, it seemed that nothing was working....the kids were tired and cranky due to an early-morning swim meet and the light was all wrong since I'd hoped for a lovely autumnal warmth and ended up with a cloudy, Novemberish afternoon.

But, it is what it is....and much of art is all about faith, anyways....  so I headed out and prayed for the best. 

And, I discovered the reflections, cattails, and seed pods.....
