My wife, Lorie, is a talented photographer.

Yes, she is!! I love the textures, design, and mood of this photo. It would make a great pastel painting :-)

Jean Spitzer said...

Yes, she is. Somehow lush, despite how dry the vegetation seems.

-Don said...

Yes, she is.

That looks like a scene that I've seen in one of your works. Home?

I will call this the "yes, she is!" post. All 3 comments came in blind - all three said the same thing. My wonderful wife is talented in more ways than one, but here you can see her photography.

I thought the same thing about this, Kathy. I sketched the same scene last summer, but didn't use it. This composition works better, so I will rip it off.

Jean, even though we live inland, the marine weather still predominates. It is a crop-growing empire.

Just south of the house by about 4 miles, I reckon, Don. I have never looked directly at this scene, but I collect imagery in my mind and work from memory.

Stunning!!!! Lorie is very talented.

Casey Klahn said...

She'll be glad to see these comments - thanks, Loriann!

Sonya Johnson said...

Wonderful! I love abstracted landscape photography like this. And agreed - it would make a great reference for a painting :)

Sharmon Davidson said...

Great job, Lorie! It's a stunning photo!

Casey Klahn said...

Sharmon and Sonya, thanks on behalf of Lorie.

Susan Liles said...

Excellent photo. Very interesting and draws the eye in.

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

What a great photo! It's the Palouse and the magical lines from the combines over the hills. Tell Lorie it's A+!

This is the sort of scene that Cheryl Culver develops in pastel. Great photo, great depth.

Wonderful texture and rhythm, Lorie. I hear really good jazz.

Jeanette said...

Amazing photo. She chose the perfect position to capture this amazing scene. Beautiful job.

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks to everyone who commented here. I'm trying to wrestle Lorie down for the 1 minute it will take to respond to these - she knows you love her photography, and will be with you soon.

Can the Christmas season be any busier?

Nice picture indeed! I think I know this view; it’s straight ahead going west when your road takes a 90 degree turn south if I remember correctly. I’m sure I went down that road one winter in the snow when turning right was not an option because of the sheet of ice under the new snow!

Casey Klahn said...

There's Jake! de-lurked you today, eh?

The scene is straight south of the house on the Butte - the one you drive over to get here, except this is the primitive road that leads up to Bryan's piece.

Lisa McShane said...

Yep, that's fantastic!

Lorie Klahn said...

Hello everybody. Wow it is great to hear your comments on the photo. Thank you so much! You know don't you that Casey ripped it off my Facebook page? I told him he is the only person in the world allowed. I'm glad you like the image. ~Lorie

Katherine Tyrrell said...

That's an ace composition - I'd love to see more of Lori's work.

Casey Klahn said...

My and Lorie's thanks, Katherine. I have a number already on this blog, somewhere. I'll have to collect them up and feed them out.

Cheers!
