Today, since I am so behind and it has been so long since I could regularly post for you,
I just went into archives from April 2012 and pulled flower photos and waterfalls for you to see!


My garden pansies:

Raindrops on the pansies:

Side profile:


My  husband has taken me to this set of hidden falls four times.
Each time, the lighting has not been right for photos.
We went in the rain,
we went in the sun,
we went on cloudy days that when we arrived there, the sun broke out of nowhere and "washed out" the shot...
and finally...
on this day, the lighting was perfect.

A little side rapids below the falls which I liked the rocks at:

A macro of a teeny tiny
Trout Lily...the first of the wildflowers to bloom in our area!:

I miss blogging every other day.

I miss being current in my photography post-processing,

I miss you all....

but my wish has come true in that I have gotten to sell some of my photography
and have won some photo contests which landed me some photography jobs...
So, I must do my "calling" before I can blog.

Please keep my blog on your blogroll, and I will post whenever I can, I promise!!

Thanks to each of you that keep me on your list!!

I forgot to post the July 2012 photo entries for the theme of RED, White and Blue (or the USA FLAG)
Stay tuned, they are coming!!
Don't forget August's theme for the
Seats! Anything you can sit on!

Get your photo in no later than midnight, August 31st, 2012

You don't have to be a blogger to enter.

Hi Joan;
Congrats on the photo jobs, I loved your photos......we called the toad lilies "adder tongues" I think they're the same flowers.
