Wow - more great shots. You are living in a treasure trove of beauty. You are swimming in beauty. And you seem to know how to appreciate it. Excellent.

One thing I'd like to see is som close-up shots of small things. To me, that's what makes it real. It brings a sudden sense of presence and reality and substance and texture to the place. A sense of being there. a sense of place.

When I see a photo of the larger scene it can look very pretty, but I am removed from it by distance and that gives it a sense of unreality to it. as if it is a painting of a scene in someone's mind. But to zero in on an obscure little piece. a tiny microcosm of the beauty of a place is to lock into something that is real - for me at least.
It gives me a sense of standing there with you and sharing that moment.

I can see why you love living there.

Hi Val,

Thank you for your comments. I used to take close-ups of flowers and plants as a teaching aid when I was a volunteer naturalist for a local parks department. There is a whole world of beauty in that close-up world. I don't know where those photos are - I think my ex got custody of them :)
