    Timeless beauty! I don’t think I’ve said it before, but I think the design of your blog is very tasteful. The royal blue color matches your style of photography very well. It’s always a treat for the eye to visit your blog. Tasteful and classy.

    The Anne Frank quote is so true. I cried rivers when I read her diary as a little girl.

    Enjoy your day!

      Thank you! I need to work on it but I just haven’t…but soon and with a smile…
      Anne Frank..yes the book is awesome. I was principal of a Jewish Day School for a year…long time ago. It was quite an experience and I learned so much! I got to be friends with one of the WWII concentration camp survivors = he taught me so much!
      Be blessed young lady!

      I took this one on November 10 just after sunrise. There where high winds at night and they really cleaned all trace of man from the dunes. This happens most every night to some degree but I was lucky as a storm was moving through. I use lightroom and adjusted some with the dehaze tool which helped the mountains in the distance. The dunes where just like that due to the wind…most mornings here are that perfect as it is a pretty long hike and if you go out and set up prior to sunset you are pretty lonely… I spotted three other photographers that morning. I also had a terrible time focusing my shots as the sand was moving…in shots with a bush to focus on I did much better LOL.. Thanks again for the compliment!!
