You take GREAT photos, Roland.  Sorry about your camera.  :-\

Thanks Elle - had only taken close ups until then, having purchased the camera only 6 months earlier. (the Northern Ontario shots had been taken with Bryan's camera.)

A closer look at the same view as the previous shot shows horizontal light.

Seems like the best of the season's passed already - here's a picture a the daylilies + taken 3 days ago. There was nothing new to photograph today, but I still have a few in reserve - like this one.


I love this color mix.  Flower photography is among my favorite!

it makes me go OOO and AWWW!! too. but it also makes me feel like I am there. You have a good way of capturing atmosphere, Roland. I don't know how to explain it....I just get a lot of feeling from some of your pictures.

This one makes me feel...alone? Wanting? anticipatory...like I am waiting for something or waiting to go somewhere...what is over the next ridge? the next curve..

As the light started piercing between the clouds, the show got more vivid!
