Dreams



"Life is full of beauty.  Notice it.  Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.  Smell the rain, and feel the wind.  Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams."

I really like the muted tones and soft gentle nature of this shot.

I love the way the rosehips which are further away seem to draw me deeper into the photo.
Thanks for sharing!

It's a beautiful shot and the DOF is fantastic and I'm looking forward to reasonable temperatures to go out and snap photos as this... my camera won't operate at -30 C (-22F)...brrr.

Stunning simplicity. Love the warm colors.

Magical! I was wondering what kind of hip or berry they are, but then I decided to just think of them as "wild sugarplums"

Mary, there is just something awesome about this photograph. The depth of field, the muted colors, the burnt edges. It's the combination of everything that makes me love it!
