Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.

The color in this is absolutely gorgeous!
Thank you so much Lisa.I sort of felt Monet could have put these colors together.
This is very beautiful Emily! I can almost feel the softness.
I’m amazed that you actually like this one Michael. Sort of different than what we’re used to.
Beautiful colors and a lovely summer photo
Thank you so much. I truly appreciate your visits and kind comments.
So gorgeous! Such beautiful colors ~ http://nakitaaudrey.com
Thanks Nakita ! Great to meet you and appreciate your generous comment.
I hope that you’re not offended, but this one isn’t my cup of tea. I can understand what you were going for, and you did it well, I think. 😉
What??? Is this too girlie for you? Hey, I see what you are saying. Not usually what I put out either. But it’s fun to try different things sometimes. Each image speaks to me on how it should be expressed. Funny huh?
Not funny at all, that’s what photography is all about. I shoot some soft focus/soft lighting shots from time to time, nothing wrong in that, but for me, you took this one a little too far, but that’s my opinion. There will be others who love this one. As long as you do, my opinion doesn’t really matter.
I’m with you..not what I would usually do, and something that I wouldn’t include in my portfolio. Sort of like finger painting. It was just an experiment in something new.
Beautiful delicate subject and gorgeous soft pastel colours
Appreciate your kind and generous comment Mark. Thank you so very much. 🙂
Lovely… reminds me of lazy, hazy summer days! 🙂
You must have read my mind, as that is all we’ve been having lately. Thanks!
Beautiful – my painters eye cannot resist the attraction to the peaceful colors and image.
I can see how this soft image can touch your spirit. So happy you enjoyed this one Mary.
Thank you so very much Judy!
I have always liked pastels, but shoot the opposite, saturated and high contrast. I love this and would have no problem having it in my portfolio, if I had one. It shows your flexibility, adaptability and skill set as well. And of course I love the quote, Dickens, I had no idea.
Thank you so much Robert ! Truly appreciate your comment, and support as a great photographer.
