Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.

    Before reading, I knew this was California… I love the fog and composition.

  • Very kind of you, John!! I know there must be a million photos of this area! Fortunately not many were on the road at this early hour :))))
