Mother’s Day Gems

Spring in the North, you gotta love it! Galleries of world class images can’t fully capture the moments; there are too many intangibles whirling around, evading descriptive words and fancy gear. The last 72 hours have left me with a flood of memories, some made a bit more lasting with visual reminders. Mom would have loved this post!

    • Thanks Pierre. The challenges of pleasant lighting and composition can be daunting in a natural setting, but these I was pleased with. Glad you had similar thoughts.

  1. LOVE the photo of the Turkey Vulture. It pulls me emotionally. I hope you don’t mind if I use it for a photo reference for a painting I’m doing right now. I usually like to use my own photo reference, but, I don’t think I could ever capture the Turkey Vulture as you have. I will be happy to give your blog credit wherever appropriate like on my social media when I post pics of my painting.
