Summer's Secret

by Marsha February. 17, 2010 5023 views

Still visiting family in Kansas but recently had time to get a few shots. The first four photos are from the archives (Colorado) and the last three I shot over the weekend near a frozen Kansas lake.

Of winter's lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer's secret
Deep down within its heart.

AMAZING set. The shadows in #2, the perspective and clean lines in #1, the composition of #6, the way it all goes together, the depth of #4, the creativity of #5, the colors of #3 and the moon finale in #7.

Good job, very very good job.
