Hi Marilyn, good work on the light of the trees. A pattern in colour. This is great because the colour gives the mood. I like the colour white as a colour in the very foreground. Just perfect. The light shadows are awesome. Great photo Marilyn.

Hi Marilyn! This picture makes you wonder what's further up that hill. A good balance between the light and the shadow. Real good! Gr, Ed.

Beautiful. I imagine that it will be glorious in Spring and Summer.

I love the new collection

Marilyn, I wish you and your family and your friends a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I wish good luck and success to all of you.

With the best regards with Christmas from Russia, Sergej

Marilyn Whiteley on December 19, 2007

Thank you for your comments, Carsten, Ed, and Palmina, and for your delightful greeting, Sergej.

I found other things to photograph here, but this was what caused me to stop the car and explore. I'm glad you like it.

It's a wonderful composition, Marilyn! I wonder, could you smell the cedars from here?


Marilyn Whiteley on December 21, 2007

Thanks, Ryan. I didn't think of that! No, I didn't notice. Cedar swamps are common here, but obviously these were very meticulously planted.

Wonderful photo Marilyn, beautiful lines and nice colours!

Merry Christmas (this photo works well for that :)) and all the best for 2008!

Thank you, Justin, and best wishes to you for Christmas and the new year!

Greetings Marilyn, What a classic shot. Beautiful wind break, circa 1850, for the high plains. Rusted barbed wire would be perfect for the fence. Hitch and wagon tracks would finish it off nicely. Thanks for sharing.



Marilyn Whiteley on December 28, 2007

Thanks, Rich. I haven't posted any shot of the barn, but some views of it would fit well at least with the later 19th century.

Best wishes for the New Year.

Cheers, Marilyn

Nice shot Marilyn.

They say nature abhors a straight line, but when we humans get involved, natural pieces can form very beautiful lines, and you captured this very well.

Happy New Year from cold, wet and windy California (although not, I'm sure like where you are in the frozen far north!) Paul

Thank you, Paul, for your kind comment, and best wishes to you for a happy and healthy 2008.

Canadians delight in pointing out that the southernmost part of Ontario is south of the northern part of California. But I don't think you're that far north, and we're not that far south. (I grew up in extreme northern Illinois, and after I married a Canadian and moved to Canada, we often found out from my parents what our weather would be on the following day.) Marilyn

No, we aren't quite that far north. Redding is at about the same latitude as Pittsburgh, and yes, we do get California poppies here - I even have some in my garden!

Regards, Paul

Wonderfull shot Marilyn!

Cheers, Alex

Thanks, Alex. It was wonderful to discover the magic created by snow on the first sunny day in a long while! Cheers, Marilyn
