A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER ~~ John Keats



This photograph was taken in the spring when the aspen and cottonwood trees were just bringing forth new life. The reflective nature of the image gives the impression that the photograph is not a photograph at all but a painting. Nature wields a mighty brush when She paints upon the waters.

For certain beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To my eye this photo is gorgeous. The stunning color coupled with the painting like quality make this an image that gives rise to a joyful feeling in my heart. Looking at it just makes me feel good. And, as Keats said "A thing of beauty is a joy forever".

I would love to know what you think.  You can leave a comment by clicking on the image and scrolling down to the bottom. It would be great if you did.

what you do with a camera is phenomenal. I love color and I love water so when I found Autumn Lily Pads and Symphony in Green and Blue in your gallery I was overwhelmed. I always thought shots like that would be easy to do...how wrong I was. I can take a great photo but I'm still searching how to give them substance....or character.

Thanks Rilly. The two that you mention are two of my favorites. I have Lily Pads on a 24 x 36 canvas and it is a wowser. People are always asking who is the painter, to which I reply "Why Mother Nature of course". :)
