A woman of the prairie reflects upon the past with optimistic hope for the future.

Blend of three images (Maternity image, prairie grass and wooded area) with lighting effects and lens flare added in Photoshop CC. Warmth toning also added using color balance and warming filter.

Warmth of the prairie…

A cold wind blows throughout the night, while snow fills the winter air. It’s warm inside my cozy home and I find myself drawn to images of dandelions basking in the warmth of the early summer sun.

Blend of three images:  Grove of trees near my house, dandelions from my lawn last summer and maternity image captured in the studio with strong backlight.  Watercolor filter, lens flare and lighting effects added with Photoshop CC.

I see and feel the protection of angels.  Yes, I believe…

View of Gary, South Dakota from  Minnesota in Lac qui Parle County, Manfred Township, on a cold, blustery day ~December 16, 2015.  Touched up a few dust on the sensor spots and tweaked saturation, just a little. White specks are from the blowing snow. Working on a series called “Into the Light” and this was the result on this day due to lens flare.  (Click on the image for a larger viewing window.) ISO 100 / 1/500 / F 16

Maybe I’m just feeling the Christmas spirit, but I see an angel.

Do you see the angel?
