Butterfly with Purple Flowers

Butterfly with Purple Flowers

Summer has finally arrived! The flowers are blooming, butterflies are fluttering, and the world is painted once again with nature’s brushstrokes. One summer eve, I found this delicate swallowtail butterfly playing among the purple Russian sage growing in my front garden. It has become another popular pick of buyers from my stock photo portfolio. Title of stock photo: Butterfly with Purple Flowers This stock image is available at: Dreamstime

Stock photo - Sunset on Solar Panels

Sunset on Solar Panels

Some photos simply happen right before your eyes – just grab your camera and find the right angle. This solar array generates all of the electricity for my home. It stands right next to our house, efficiently taking in the sun’s rays every day, creating clean renewable power and silently fighting climate change. Yep, my husband and I are extremely proud of our array! One afternoon I was admiring a cold winter sunset as it glowed on the horizon. Looking over at the photovoltaic cells, I noticed the clouds had painted vibrant strokes over the dark panels. As the colors were fading fast, I quickly grabbed my camera, dashed out the door and snapped two or three images at a low angle before the sun dipped out-of-site. Late, when I downloaded the photos to my computer, I loved what I saw! A gorgeous solar landscape! Title of stock photo: Sunset on Solar Panels This stock image is available at: Dreamstime

Stock Photo - On the Road

On the Road

Does wanderlust run in your veins? Ever get the itch to travel wherever the road leads you? The Irish have a beautiful saying – “May the road rise up to meet you.” I had these words in mind when I created this photographic montage. That’s right – this scene only exist in my computer. The winter landscape was photographed close to my home in New Mexico. But the old suitcase was photographed and dropped in later. The travel stickers were digitally created in Photoshop, then superimposed upon the 50’s-style suitcase, along with a layer of grunge to suitably age them. And there you have it … a travel stock image with a touch of retro thrown in for fun. Title of stock photo: On the Road This stock image is available at: Dreamstime
