Forget-Me-Nots

Forget20150717_mockupology_girlholdingHORIZONTALposter_8_10 copy_edited-1I photographed these sweet blue flowers on a trail in my town, although they grow in my yard, as well. I’ve always called them Forget-Me-Nots, but I learned that they are known as Scorpion Grass, as well. I also learned that they are in the genus, Myosotis, which comes Latin and Greek and means “mouse’s ear”, so named for the shape of the petals.

The sky was so beautiful over my hometown last evening! My eldest daughter and I were up and down our street barefoot trying to dodge phone lines and tall trees blocking the view. I think it’s pretty enough to hang on the wall, so I’ve added it to my Etsy shop.

Moonlit Road Through Red Forest

IMG_4781FLATUSETHIS8x12LOW
I had fun creating this ethereal woodland scene I originally photographed on a hike in Massachusetts. It features a road leading through a red forest. Moonlight streams through the leaves, making dappled shadows on the forest floor. A dark gray vignette wreaths the perimeter of the image. New in my shops today, look here for the listing in my Etsy shop.

I photographed this barn and rural landscape in Central New York on a lovely October day while on our way to Howe Caverns (Caves! They’re amazing!) I am grateful that my family is patient every time pull over in the car to take photos…

Japanese anenomes in Black and White

A bouquet of Japanese anenome blossoms photographed from above casts a long shadow on the linen tablecloth. These elegant flowers grew in abundance at our early-1800s Colonial in Central New York State. A click on the image takes you to my growing gallery at Saatchi Art, a new site for me.

The last light of early evening casts shadows on an old building of four young people under a street light.

Greenery.

As lake effect snow piled up outside yesterday – the day before New Year’s Eve – I enjoyed editing this sunny, colorful image. This beautiful field of vibrant golden yellow sunflowers is in Central New York state, outside of Syracuse. A click on the image will take you to my Fine Art America page.

Alpine View In Green

This beautiful scene was captured in Upper Austria in the Salzkammergut region near Hallstatt in April 2014. In the foreground, green trees stand tall along the steep incline of the mountains, while snow-capped mountains of higher elevation and a blue sky with white clouds complete the scene.

Lines and Shadows

We took a wonderful trip to Canada in late August to Montreal and Quebec City. A walk down by the St. Lawrence in Montreal yielded this dramatic sight where the morning sun casted dramatic shadows of a metal staircase running up the side of an industrial building. Just this week I began to set up a gallery on Saatchi Art, which is where a click on my image will take you.
