New Works!

There is beauty everywhere you look. That's why I chose these images for this week's post -- whether landscapes or flowers it shines through and draws us to them. I love the overall feel of the first image, the trees reflecting on the water below and what a beautiful effect the black & white gives it. And I chose the other three images because they remind me of a good jigsaw puzzle, you know the kind that you buy new just so that you can do them over and over? And finally, the two flowers. I chose them because I just love the fading, blurry backgrounds and the rich, soft coloring.

Lovely work everyone, I'm so proud to be a member of this talented team! Thank you for including "Aspen Grove", Pam, and I had to laugh because jigsaw puzzle came to mind when I was capturing this photograph:)

Thank you so much for featuring my piece!

I agree with Pam and Alison - I love jigsaw puzzles and these images are a perfect reminder. Wouldn't it be cool to make puzzles up of our own favorite images and give them as gifts for the holidays? I wonder how we could do that...

I also have to say that I LOVE the dof/bokeh quality in the last two photos too - great picks Pam!
