I took a hike with my family at Highland Forest, part of the Onondaga County Park System in Central New York State. We go there often and while it is lovely in every season, I prefer the scenery in autumn when the foliage is colorful and vibrant. Here, a mottled but bright red sugar maple ( latin: Acer saccharum ) leaf contrasts against brown logs and green moss, ferns, and other plants.

While traveling in Venice can feel as though one is in a living museum, there are scenes such as this where one is reminded that people actually live here! The original color of this building was drab, so I took some liberties and made it a raspberry – pink with a soft glow. Clean laundry flutters in the Spring breeze. Forest green shutters flank the windows. Clicking on the image will bring you to my Fine Art America page.
I photographed these delicate dried hydrangea blossoms on a sunny winter day in Central New York. Earth tones of beige, brown, tan, ivory, and gray are featured, and the ice crystals in the background create a beautiful bokeh effect. I enhanced the image with fine French script and layers of light textures.
It’s been one year since my family traveled to Austria. Even my ten and eleven year-old daughters appreciated the cleanliness of the pristine mountain towns, and the healthy lifestyle – hiking and eating fresh, wholesome food – of its inhabitants.
I photographed these woods as we followed the trail to Festung Hohensalzburg, the fortress perched above Salzburg.
The butterflies in this display are actually a pretty butter-yellow, but today I made them pink and added some vintage texture and faint script. How pretty they would be fluttering across a little girl’s bedroom wall or a baby girl’s nursery. A click on the image will bring you to my Fine Art America website.
