Wow Mole you have an eye for finding beauty where ever you look. Many of your subjects I would just pass by without a second look but you have a talent for isolating the hidden beauty in nature and your surroundings.

For the berries shots I like the 3rd ~ the contrast and rich colors
DA 21 barn shots the 1st
sunsets, I like the 3rd, I like the framing of the first but it was a little to early and looks unnatural.

I had the same reaction as NMR. I loved the whole series, but the shot with the purple flower int he foreground and the out-of-focus barn in the background really jumped out at me. Thank you for sharing your delightful landscape with us.

NMR - Glad you enjoyed the barn shot - it's a spot I pass often, but rarely take time to pause and enjoy. DA 21 does a nice job with this kind of scene...

Forzahibs - A correct impression! I am indeed blessed with a great job!

Hans - Thanks so much for the kind words and very helpful comments!

MtnMan - So glad you liked these!

Rodney - Spiderwebs are such fun to photograph! Thanks!

That first spiderweb shot is incredible, definitely my favorite. Love the prism effect you captured (but then, you know I love photographing wet webs). The whole series is lovely, as usual.
