When you have a rainbow deep down in your heart, your smile will shine bright. You know you're a part of that colorful, magical, feeling you'll find, when you have a rainbow inside

Blue Hour at the tulip fields
Looking for a good title for this one, where Blue Hour (the hour after sunset) worked its magic over the tulip fields... Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodland, WA

What a treat!

Cedar waxwing. I don't know what kind of trees these were, with these pretty berries, but the waxwings were devouring them! I've never been able to get the red in their wingtips AND the yellow tail tips before, so I was excited to catch this one!

From our Cannon Beach trip a few weeks ago.  Clicking on the image takes you to my website, where the colors are more natural.  I do not like Google's renditions of my colors -- gaaaah!
Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, Oregon You can see the image with a quote here

A friend is one to whom you can pour out the contents of your heart, chaff and grain alike, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away. George Eliot

Totally lost to the photography bug!
Introduction
Sadly, I don't keep Google+ current.  My main photography website is www.synappedphoto.com

I've started sharing beginner photography tips as Focal Pointers on Facebook
(https://www.facebook.com/pages/FocalPointers/621008691309475?fref=nf)
******************************************
Unfortunately, this world can often be an ugly place. I find joy in searching out beauty and am thrilled and awed if I can sometimes capture those images to share with others.

I discovered photography in the early part of 2006 and have lived, eaten and breathed it ever since.  I still feel like a "newbie" in the photog world and really do appreciate kindly constructive criticism. 

I was surprised to discover a new love for beauty through photography. Birds and flowers never interested me before, but now the challenge of getting a pretty image of them fills my days with wonder!  I've just recently taken on the challenge of trying to learn a bit of portrait photography -- and wow, what a challenge that is!
