Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Fell in love with the hills. It is very dry except in the winter, so the hills are mostly a golden brown. I love the contrast they give to the landscape.

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.
