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.

    very nice outlook Ellen, could be in Australia

  • Thank you so much, Anthony!! Yes, I’ve noticed some similarities in the landscapes of Australia to parts of the Big Island. I love the island, so I’d probably love Australia too!

    really pretty, Ellen. Makes me want to walk along it!

  • Thanks, Maureen! There’s no place on the island that isn’t a beautiful place to walk – although this area is extremely windy most of the time.

    I also like the composition, and your post-processing gives this landscape a very special mood.

  • Thank you! I really appreciate your generous comment and support, Pahit!!! It took me quite a few reworkings before I was satisfied with this one.
