  2. Wonderful series of pictures. Those stones seem to personify the concept of time stretching back into the remotest origins of the earth. Beautiful work.

  3. Hello Tammie,
    I can't agree more with my friend David's comment - he and Miriam came to my place a couple of years ago from Canada!
    As I said on FB, I really enjoy those stone photos, so colourful and so attractive one would easily wish to learn all the secrets of their adventures through aeons of time!
    Keep well and enjoy spring too :)

  7. Instead of stones they look like jewelry. It's nice to see that clarity of vision of the stones.
    Have a good one, Tammie !

  12. You have such fantastic scenery there, but I am sure that your photography really brings out the best of it. As I have said in a previous post, I have never seen such clear, calm water. We never see the beautiful colours of the pebbles in the water here. Our stones usually have a layer of algae covering them. I wonder if your colder winters discourages the growth of algae.

    1. Hi Nick,

      In some places we have algae and moss, like my ponds. I am sure the freeze thaw is helpful for clear water, but also shore line rocks get a lot of water movement from waves, moving water from wind and more.

      I am so glad you enjoyed these.

  13. I love those ice images. You make them look like magic. So beautiful.
    I once visited Glacier National Park in the summer and was awed by its beauty. The wildflowers were so lovely - my favorite part actually. I can't even imagine what it is like in winter.

  17. I love how you appreciate nature so much, Tammie Lee. I hope that Spring has arrived in your area. Each season brings new beauty. The summers here are not my favorite, as they get so hot. So, it is a treat seeing all this SNOW!

  20. Can't get over how colorful those rocks are!!! One of these days I have to get back to Montana! I haven't been in nearly 30 years. Did I just say that? Oy.
    Anyway, happy spring to you Tammie!
