erin



p.s. after being without Photoshop on my new computer for many months now, i have repurchased and
i am having a blast getting to know it all over again....although i feel rusty...
i am reminded how much i truly
love
playing with my photos!

p.p.s.  i even created my own bokeh layers (the little light balls you see in the background) by taking photos of the sun going down behind the trees.

p.p.p.s.  i am off to meet up with a friend, who knows a farmer whose sheep has given birth to 3 little lamby's....my camera in hand, of course!  i am so excited.

This really helps with the cabin fever I have on this snowy, cold and cloudy day! Thank you, Erin!Your photos are just beautiful - I love the colors, the shadows and the bokeh layers.

Dear Erin...thank you for the hyacinths, snowdrops and daffodils...you certainly got me dreaming. As for those little lambs - please share pictures...they are so sweet. Take care and have a great day.

Love the pictures - Beautiful!! When out and about few days ago, saw some pots of hyacinths and was tempted. However, they were already completely bloomed out, so knew would not last more than a couple of days.
Thanks for sharing these - I really needed a touch of Spring. This weather is getting on my last nerve. I can not imagine living further North where they are dealing with conditions that are much worse. Looking forward to pics of the baby lambs.
Stay warm!

Oh I love baby lambs!!!! We used to take our children to their uncle's when his ewes would lamb out and it was so fun to see them. I loved it when they would get a few weeks old and frolic around with each other.

I love these photos Erin...they are gorgeous. I haven't tried to figure out Photoshop because everyone has always told me how difficult it is. I LOVE what you have done with these photos.

I am getting excited as I am taking more photos and maybe one day, you will see more of my photos. But yours are so gorgeous, and you inspire! Thank you for these wonderful images of spring.
