I'm annee mchughes of Colorado. Photography is my passion along with writing. It's in my blood - my maternal grandfather was a photojournalist, my grandmother and mother both writers. Disabled due to botched back surgery in 2000, I now spend most of my free time blogging, sharing photographs, and connecting with family members recently rediscovered. My first love is God, family is a close second. My husband is my hero. We have three sons, a daughter and a grandson. My kitties are Nani Ui Maikai (Nani) a Bombay who acts (and looks) like a miniature panther, Clementine (Snorx) a Clouded Tiger with an incurable respiratory condition, and Cleopatra (Cleo) a grey and white Egyptian mix who chews on people when she's hungry. Yep, we tend to take in all the critters nobody else wants. I was born in Sarasota, FL where I spent the first six years of life. I'd love to see photos of Sarasota around the old neighborhood. I lived on 9th St. near Gillespie Park with huge trees we liked to climb in. We also spent time in Lake Butler where my grandparents had a motel cabin court called The Lake Butler Motel, of all things. If anyone has information or photos of that area, I'd love to hear from you =) I hope you enjoy my meager photographic offerings. And thanks for sharing yours =)

Worthy of a vote. Great surreal feel to this image. Love the hint of pink through the trees - Sunset or sunrise? The path just lures me in and makes me stay. Great composition and exposure. Very nicely done! Thank you for sharing. anne :-)

I don't know German but recognized Mosel. I photographed a sunset on the Mosel River in September once - don't remember exactly where I was but it couldn't have been far from Bitburg because that's where I was staying at the time - in or near Trier I believe. Anyway, marvelous image with great detail, color, contrast, exposure and composition. First rate, Freund! Gets my vote. Vielen Dank! anne :-)

While not a great photograph, taken in the middle of the afternoon on a hot summer day as I drove through the center of Hawaii en route from Kona to Hilo, This image speaks to the hardiness of some plants. The tree was growing in the middle of a field of lava. there are red "flowers" all over it. The tree's wood seems to mimmick its formidable soil. I crossed the road and climbed into the lava flow which dries into razar sharp spikes. I was happy to retreat without mishap which might have been disastrous as I was traveling alone. Enjoy the fruit. annee :-)
