I just wrote a long critque about nature and art and how you consistently marry the two so well.

Oh, and how posthumans will use your photos as a record of what a natural environment looks like... gone sister. It's gone. We are similarly cursed encommente.

WHat everyone else said!

Seriously, this is quite a shot, Ms. T.

Such a lovely contrast to your photo from yesterday! I like the name, 'Pearblossom Highway.'

Knoxville Girl said...

Downright Desolate, but I think that's why I like it. I second Marley's comment about Depth too...

You never answer my questions because you're awfully stuck up, but isn't there a pastoral little town off PBH called Valyermo, or something like that?

Miss Havisham's Tea Party said...

Valyermo? Gasp!

You mean the Benedictines? I thought you were areligious and get off the couch you Viking princess you.

Tash, Tash, Tash, I can't quite express how much I love this photo. It's my favorite, ever, of all your shots. And that's saying something.

I love how this photo shows distance with the receding pole size, and the warm colors in the foreground making cool background colors seem farther away. Very peaceful looking.

TheChieftess said...

Ditto to all!!! Love the depth of field and the perspective of the poles receding into the background...
I agree with Petrea...definitely one of your best!!!

The best thing is the gold color of the flowers playing off the blue sky. That really makes an emotional statement. Great job!
