An Artists Communion Through A Lens

Pink Dogwood

A few steps from our front door, this Dogwood was a 12 inch high stick when we arrived in December of 1998.  Now twelve feet high, it holds Christmas Lights in December and announces Spring each March.  It survived a brutal Ice storm that broke Maples and Hollies.  It has outlasted two Labrador Retrievers.  It is graceful and elegant yet durable.   Until today, I have been frustrated trying to make a photograph of it.

    Beautiful. I love that the contrast is high, yet the softness.of the flower remains invitingly tangible.

    Beautiful pictures, as well as the tree that I can see from my window.
