here are some shots i took this morning at camas marsh. woke up at 6, saw the sky & headed over there. i love the big sky & cloud reflections in the water.
i like it, anyway. this is 12x12
and i entered this one instead of the other one i had posted because i thought it worked better with the other two. it's 7x9.5x1.5
this one is 24x18.

this is where it was after tuesday evening-
not feeling quite there, so i added some stencils- number 3 seems to be a theme-
and then some symbols-
these are the other 2 pieces that i'm entering. who knows how i will frame them if they're accepted! :)
ps- i love cesar & it all being about energy and how energy affects results.... works for so many things in life

the roses are all old roses- rugosas or bourbon roses- or climbers. the bonus is that most of them are fragrant & bloom for an extended period.
when we got home from fairfield, i ran some soaker hose ( i do water maybe every other week when it's really hot, and this is most efficient- and easiest).
so here's what's blooming now (it's always a miracle!)
frau dagmar hastrup old rose- very fragrant, planted by the front door. love this plant.

the camas are blooming away and it was beautiful. fine tuning with the extender & tele lens.
love the yellow headed blackbirds- especially among the blue of the camas.
the clouds and sky were beautiful. i really want to get back at sunrise/sunset & catch the colors in the reflection. maybe tomorrow.....
