I have rebuilt the website to allow more flexibility in how I present images. This post is to let you know that, and to test the email notification system for which you are signed up. I also thought I would mention that this image was shortlisted by the Huffington Post (91 images shortlisted out of 5,000 submitted) when they recently put out a call for a ‘green’ image. I was pretty pleased to be in such restricted company. Maybe by the end of the year I will actually have sold something!
How cheesy can you get? I was gathering images for a competition about “natural bright colours” and realized I have a number of close-up flower shots, often with rain or dew drops! I didn’t realize I took so many such obvious pictures – but the natural world is a beautiful place. If you hover over the picture you’ll see a bit about each one.
We went out to Kilby at the confluence of the Harrison River and the mighty Fraser River. The salmon were starting to come upstream to lay their eggs and we could see them jumping as they made their way to the sandy spawning grounds.
It rained most of the weekend but I got some shots of the roadside leaves and hedgerows.
