Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    It’s so lovely and lush, Bette! Love the composition! Were you aware that there is a popluar oceanside vacation spot in the US, called Myrtle Beach?

  • I’m happy that you like it Lynn. No, I do not know of the vacation spot – but this is a ‘beech’ – not a ‘beach’ :)

    The quiet beauty of the rainforest is so perfectly framed with that beech tree. Soothing and serene!

  • Thanks Celeste. Your response is all that I could desire. :)

    I thought it was a play on words, Bette! The antithesis of the tourist trap in the US!

  • Hm. Probably not a play on words because I don’t think that the myrtle beech is found in America . Is it?

    No, I don’t think so, but it’s possible in other parts of the US….we have beech trees where I live but not this species. I’ll have to look into it more!
