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.

    This is so beautiful Ellcot and a very peaceful scene. You have captured Peace and beauty in this wonderful work. It reminds me of a childhood memory when I would walk through the hills of Co. Tyrone where I was born and raised. There are as we Irish know 40 shades of green. The clouds grace this image so well. America to is so beautiful as this was taken in California. Your Camera skills and use of photo software is excellent. Thank you for sharing this beauty.":

  • Thank you very much, Trevor, for leaving such thoughtful and generous comments!! I appreciate it very much, and I imagine Ireland to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Every place has its own unique beauty – just like each person and living being. Your visit is very much appreciated!
