Sometimes the Worms Have the Best View

How often do we search for a striking foreground to a beautifully coloured sky, at sunset or sunrise? And how often are we in just the wrong place, with scrub land or ugly buildings the only thing we can feature in the photograph? Too often, at least for me. I had just these same thoughts when I saw this beautiful fading sunset, but then I saw these lovely wildflowers and grasses boldly silhouetted against the pink and blue hues and decided to get down low and make them the stars of my picture.

When we don’t have glorious mountain ranges, canyons or waterfalls near us, we can make the smaller, quieter glories around us into such wonders. We just have to get the right perspective to see their qualities and potential. Isn’t that the same with people?

    1. Thank you Gina. We just have to take a little time and look for the small special things sometimes, I think. Like the things you used to make your little forest ‘castles’
      Warn greetings to you in Austria from Nova Scotia.

  2. +Karen Cooper – I am using print suppliers (too expensive to ship from here) and have the setup which is used on Steven's Small Box store. That will work, but is tedious to set up for all the print sizes. I am already retired. So it's a bit late. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. +Ellie Kennard We had a problem with prints too. While we have the printer and paper plus of course in the shape of +Keith Cooper all the expertise we need need to make the prints, we just didn't have a functioning gallery. Keith is currently working on a new website with a much more responsive gallery. We'd like to think our photo stock and print sales will be our retirement fund :0)
