Light always finds a way to penetrate the dark, the feeling, for all light loving souls would be profound, even a tiny crack with light coming through would inspire me, especially if I had experienced something of a dark nature. Bring it on, my nature cry’s out for it and banish the darkness forever!

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
