Happy 2024!

2024 Calendars are still available at lotsasmilesphoto.etsy.com!

This week was a little better!  I saw increased engagement, and I even have a new inductee to the 100 Club!  I think I’ve finally figured out the secret, and I really should have known: my own engagement makes my account more visible.  I made a point this week if spending five minutes each time I post not only posting my picture, but then turning around and liking, commenting, and following others.  It takes more time, but I see huge improvements when I do those things.  Go figure.

You should recognize this first image from this week’s photo challenge: reflection.  I chose to eschew the predictable watery reflections and shimmering surfaces in lieu of the more nostalgic interpretation.  It’s a post about the most influential woman of my life, and I invite you to read it here.

This next one was my submission for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness.  I was drawn to the details of these little grass tufts in “the swamp” of Yosemite.

I really like this next image.  It’s an interesting perspective, looking straight down to the distant Crater Lake far below my feet.  That blue is incredible.

This was from my photostory this week.  That morning was very cold, but the icy climb was worth the beautiful moonscapes I was able to capture!

Here’s another from Yosemite.  This is the peak of one of the Three Brothers, right at sunrise.  This park really is a photographer’s playground.

I love the colors of this next image, also from Crater Lake.  It changed so quickly as the sun set, from bright gold to gentle pastels.

Finally, my most-liked image this week, and a proud new member of the elite 100 Club!  This is yet another from Crater Lake.  That day was beautiful.  Those clouds, and those rich colors…
