I'll update my features soon when I have a bit more time
This is just a quick update on the journal to say a collective thank you
to all the fine people who wished me well when I was down flat this week with the flu and a pinched sciatic nerve. I'm glad you can understand I got miserably behind in comment replies since I wasn't able to sit up for any length of time.. but now I'm operating on 7 out of 8 pistons and can't wait to get out with my camera. I just need some decent weather!
The support for my photography has been overwhelming and I deeply appreciate this .. I try to seek out scenes of interest and keep a variety in my submissions.. to me, nature photography is not just photoshopping the hell out of a boring scene shot in a golf course. There must be substance and feeling and a special captured moment.. not just added post-work eye-candy. From some of the comments I've been getting, you guys have noticed this .. that means all my hiking and gas money and time has not been in vain

~~My favorite painting EVER
</b>Daddy's little girl
The first painting ever done of my daughter.
It touches me like no other piece I've ever laid eyes on, and pretty much makes my heart swell. I wish you all could find such a piece of art if you haven't..whether it's someone elses work or your own, so that you may appreciate the true power it has when you look at it.
Karen based her work on my photograph Walk in Fields of Gold
I am forever in your debt. ... thank you Karen
