Photography as Art – Going through my ‘Blue Period’

I love traveling – especially through Wyoming/Montana/Colorado/ & the ROCKY MOUNTAINS!  But as the only photographer in my family, it can be frustrating and tough convincing my family that we have to be at a certain location at sunset or sunrise for prime light! So, on one of our trips through the Tetons, we were running late and the lighting was ‘less than desirable’.  Afterward, I … Continue reading Photography as Art – Going through my ‘Blue Period’
