My passion is nature/landscape photography.

This video has been a great inspiration of mine recently.

I’m no professional so be kind, but this is a photograph I took last year, maybe the year before, of a mushroom/fungus growing on a tree stump my next door neighbor had in her yard and I kind of liked the way it turned out.

I’m pretty fond of this one and of this; both of which I took (relatively) recently.

@jonsblond Thanks. I’ve discovered in the past several years (newsflash!!!) that it’s amazing what you can find in your own back yard, (or maybe your neighbor’s yard , if they don’t mind you creeping around, there taking photographs :-), if only you just look. Actually, anywhere, it can be amazing what you see if only you just look.

@lillycoyote I know! We had two 8 point bucks in our backyard the other day. I wish I had my camera at the moment. :(

I second @jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities and @jonsblond . @boots You do not suck at photography. That’s beautiful.

Here’s one I like.

Typically I see the shots, and then my husband takes a better picture with his better camera. He doesn’t look the way I look or see what I see. But I took this one myself. The tall trees are Ponderosa pine, and the low almond-shaped leaves are bay laurels.

I like to take pictures of bugs. This is one of my favorite monarch pictures. I was lucky enough to get a decent picture of a hummingbird moth, here. And, I always liked this picture of a cicada emerging from its nymph skin on a tree in our back yard.

I’d love to someday take a photography class, especially to learn about taking photos with a macro lens. First I need to get the lens, then find time for a class. It’s on my “one of these days” list!

You might enjoy this clip. It’s from a video DeWitt Jones, a photographer who worked for National Geographic put together. Not only are his photos beautiful, his message is pretty inspiring.

Not the best photography, but the view was beautiful here.

I’ve found many amazing screen saver photographs from

Koyaanisqatsi (1982), to me, is the preeminent “nature” film. But it includes humans – as if so many ants, foibles and all – and with the “shining beast” as protagonist. Cronos (1993) and others that followed had better cinematography, but never captured the profound mood enabled by Philip Glass.

Here are a few hack shots of mine from this year: just an itsy pocket camera though.
