I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    This one is up there with your best work. I love your PoV and composition here and the cradles really leed the eye through to the back. The scattered pieces of wool and bales on the left gives the impression that the boys may be on their tea break…………….I love it. And the colours are downright gorgeous too. 10/10
