Common California Sycamore pods and leaf – Pleasanton, California
Canon Powershot SD1100

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.

    Oh, this is so pretty. I dont know about you, but they are one of my favorites

  • Thanks, M! I love all trees! It is so sad when they are cut down for “development” or for no good reason at all. We had a gorgeous old tree (I forget what kind) in our backyard that had to be cut down a few years back because it died. I still miss it!
