So Small a Thing



"Is it so small a thing to have enjoyed the sun, to have lived light in the spring, to have loved, to have thought, to have done?"

An "old world" painterly feel -- very nice.

The mist is a magic,
simple droplets of moisture,
turning the landscape
into
an artist's masterpiece.

so gorgeous, you have mastered this technique and made it your very own.

Very reminiscent of the Hudson River School artist movement of the mid 19th century...so lovely and painterly. Thanks for sharing, FJ

A dream like quality to this...as from a long time ago..something distantly remembered. Like I place I have been..or haven't.
Sort of haunting and beautiful..like a painting of a dream. There..that's it.
I think....
It is SO interesting what you can do with that camera, Mary.

I'm in agreement with all the previous commenters - gentle old world pastoral feeling to this - and the birds rising are especially lovely!

This looks like a very lovely landscape to begin with and you've worked magic with it. Marvelous.

Style....you have your own style. Go with that and keep on keeping on. Image involves magic, texture, empathy, what more can I say but WOWZA.

Leslye is right, it does look like a pastoral painting that should be hanging in a museum. This is a wonderful post. Thank you for stopping by my blog to see Christina and for the comment you left. I'm so glad to have "met" you.
