Pastoral Scene

I love spring...especially when the temperature actually moves above 60 degrees and the sun shines most of the day.  Early morning walks are so special, and scenes I see over and over during the year take on an other-worldly look.   I'm linking up to Nancy's Rural Thursday with two painterly versions of a special morning scene.

Beautiful, Evelyn! Glad to see you're still here and sharing your photos. :)

Oh Evelyn, such beautiful photographs. Love the wide angle views here and the colors are just magnificent!!

I have been so busy that I, too, have scarcely been online these days - and have missed my favorite bloggers because of it! Once I've completed this photo project I'm working on, I'll be back more often to check in with you. And that's a promise!

Happy Weekend to you and yours!
