Spotlight Photography – Autumn Memories – A photo by Ed Lehming @ Ed Lehming Photography

Ed Lehming Photography

“As the winter winds down with dull skies, I fondly reflect back on the memories of bright autumn days, filled with colour, cheer, and times spent among the trees.” – Ed Lehming

Spotlight Photography – Favorites of 2021 – Photos by Jane Lurie

Jane Lurie Photography

It’s the 10th anniversary of Jane’s Lens!

Jane’s Lens has been a gratifying photographic journey which has brought me blogging friends from all over the world. Thank you for your support and encouragement of my photography- you’ve helped me to discern and grow and I really appreciate it.

And thanks to my family, especially my husband Bob for inspiring me, scouting with me and patiently waiting while I make a shot.

I wish you all a happy 2022 filled with kindness, good health and creativity.
