  2. my eyes just popped looking at these beautiful colors. wonderful photography. there is a historic and contemporary feel to these colors, but even better. the metallic layers add a wonderful dimension that as you said ‘you can look into them for miles’.

  3. Lynne, and others, thanks so much for following my blog and reading, and your kind words and comments! Thanks also for your compliment on my photos. As we used to play the travel game with our kids, “I spy with my little eye…” so it goes for me and photos. I just try go capture a feeling and some kind of quality that appeals to me personally.
