Caress. by Bette Devine

The misty water seems to be caressing the adamantine rock in this glimpse of a mountain stream in the Yarra Ranges National Park, Victoria, Australia.
Please enlarge.

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.

    Lovely image Bette, we might think the same but this photo is definitely much more inspiring than mine, with great colours :)

  • Oh my goodness, Karine! I didn’t mean this one – I meant the one uploaded recently, called ‘Wave Caress’! Sorry about that, but have a look and you’ll see what I meant :)
