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.

    I love the solitude of this shot. Not a car on the road. The sun in the photo is very dramatic. Nicely executed!

  • I really appreciate your thoughtful comments, Carol! This road goes across the middle of the island but was only just in the process of being paved. So there was very little traffic on it at any time. It used to be our favorite road for this reason, but now it is seeing a bit more traffic.
