This is quite appealing. I love the colors and textures. The purples & blues against the oranges are beautiful.

Thank you Bonnie. Those colors and lines sure caught my eye. The only challenge was to frame for a pleasing composition.

Greg, this looks great. It’s a fine, flowing abstract with excellent, subtle colors. In a view like this, getting the right stuff in the frame is always a challenge and you’ve met that challenge very well.

Thank you very much, Mark. I really appreciate your comments.

Very interesting and arresting photo. Nice flow through the image. Textures and patterns are wonderful, as is the color palette.

Thank you Chris. I hope to run into you out in the field some day!

Greg: A fine find and a very pleasing comp and capture. I especially like the pastel color palette and the textures. Well done. >=))>
