Black River Gathering

A recent Pow Wow - 
color, movement, and pageantry in a sacred space.

Loved my time there!

The Horse Pull

We recently went to a horse pull competition.
These draft horses were really spectacular creatures - beautiful, large, and powerful.

They worked in two horse teams, with the winning team pulling 8,000 pounds!
With horses, handlers, and spectators - 
there was a lot of interesting subject matter for picture making.

I'll be working on this collection over time,
but here are a few edited images.

Happy creating to you!

Lensbaby Love Blog Circle: July

I think that when one lives in the frozen north,
it's easy to appreciate the abundance of the summer season.

I know I've been enjoying everything that's blooming in the woods and in my garden!
The tricky part is keeping up with all this beauty.
I've been keeping up with the picture making aspect, but not the editing component....
guess some of that will have to wait for colder days.

For now, more images for my Rainbow Macro Floral Project,
all taken with a Lensbaby.

Camping Views

A camping trip, evening light, and river country came together in these images.

I've been enjoying family fun, summer visitors, greenness, and warm weather -
hope you have too!

Happy creating to you.

Lensbaby Love Blog Circle: June

Every year I look forward to the unfolding ferns that fill our woods.
This month I've used my Lensbaby to document their amazing form.

From tightly curled, to exuberant curves and beyond,
ferns are infinitely beautiful and fascinating.

Hydrangea Blues

I bought these hydrangea at the florist's shop thinking they'd make a blue contribution
to my Rainbow Macro Floral Project.

Surprisingly, once I stepped into the macro world
 these beauties held quite a variety of subtle color.

So, it remains to be seen whether I'll use these in my final rainbow selection....
but, I want to have a lot of color choices when that time comes.

The challenge in making these images was finding designs
and flowing lines within all the busy petal arrangements.

Hope you're enjoying fabulous weather and a variety of color in your world!
Happy creating to you.
