Eye to eye with a mama rabbit -- it was a thrilling experience!
I had an intimate experience with a bunny-rabbit the other day that was so fun! She kept pulling up grass for her nest, depositing it nearby and coming back for more. She didn't seem to mind my presence at all!

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

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!

I'm almost embarrassed to post this here, since G+ oversaturates things so much, but if you click through to the REAL version it's worth a look, I promise you!

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

Totally lost to the photography bug!
Introduction
Sadly, I don't keep Google+ current.  My main photography website is www.synappedphoto.com
I'm also on Flickr:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotomakr/

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!
