Fine Art Photography Inspired By Natural Creation & Wholesome Reading For Your Family's Entertainment



Yesterday as I was taking Mama home from a doctor’s appointment, we approached a beautiful array of gorgeous, fall colors just calling out for me to have a personal photo session with them!  And of course, I just had to answer their call, so I pulled my car to the side of the street, jumped out, and started aiming the camera on my cell phone.

The first scene that caught my attention was this lush carpet of butter yellow leaves draped on the ground underneath the tree they once adorned.  Can you see why I had to answer their call?

After I snapped these shots, I suddenly caught a glimpse of these dazzling, crimson red blooms spruced throughout this humongous magnolia tree.  Mama and I were in a state of excited shock because never before had we seen flowers of this type on a magnolia tree!  She continued watching from the car as I took picture after picture after picture after . . .  :).MAGNOLIA

All of these pictures and more have been added to my photo gallery for purchase on my Nature’s Finest website.  When you have some time, please take a browse.  I have a huge assortment of photos grouped under different categories.

Have an incredibly awesome day!  And as always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours <3!

Wherever I go, I love snapping pictures with my cell phone camera. Not only is it very easy and convenient, but the photos turn out extremely sharp and crisp. I also love grouping some of them together and applying titles to each group. So today, I’m sharing several using this method.

On my most recent walk in the park, I also captured shots of leaves, pine needles, and what appeared to be some kind of sticky tape attached to other objects as you will be able to decipher from the ones I’ve included at the end of this post. The details in the pictures help me to readily create the titles that I come up with. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did photographing them.

Have an awesome day!  And as always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours <3!
