    • I generally invite any and all to join in but for some reason I was criticised for that so I am passing it on. I didn’t realize you were already participating though I saw the amazing photographs. I did indeed enjoy Derbyshire, it’s a treat to see the places that I have never been but would love to go! Love and hugs to you my dear friend.

  3. Simply beautiful, Holly! I love that you chose simple natural settings which seem like you walked through the woods and discovered them. I am in awe of large scenes like the Grand Canyon but your scenes feel like I could see them sometime soon, just around the corner of a footpath. . . Hugs, Robin


  4. I was impressed with the manatees along with beautiful birds. I hope I sounded impressed, Holly! I have only seen a few manatees and porpoises in natural settings. I just liked the way your photographs look natural and beautiful. Smiles, Robin
