  1. Exactly! I have been thinking along the same lines. There was a time when I threw out obstructions but they really do tell the story sometimes…

    Absolutely stunning, Jason. You need to quit your day job and run about taking photos all day.

    1. I’m with you, Mary. At one time I thought all photos had to be perfect with a clear view, but nature doesn’t work that way and the real scene often is quite different. And thank you for the compliment!
