Summer 2009 was exceptionally beautiful here on my little island in the Pacific NW. The day I took this shot was amazingly warm and sunny - such a departure from these dreary winter days! I remember dawdling about my yard looking for inspiration - and when I turned back toward the front porch, the afternoon light on this clematis literally took my breath away! A finicky little creature I planted about three years ago, not sure if it would make it or not. Well ... think she's happy. :)

It's all about being at the right place at the right time.

I'm absolutely THRILLED to share that one of my all-time favorite photographs will be showcased on the cover of Author Christin Lore Weber's latest novel entitled, "Gypsy Bones," due for initial release as an ebook this fall. I'm honored to have been given an advance copy, which I'm currently reading obsessively! Gypsy Bones captivated me from the very first sentence. Christin is one of those rare storytellers with the type of eloquence and mastery of the written word that only comes along once in a good ten years, if not more. Watch this site for more info, because this is certainly one you don't want to miss.
