Sierra Club "Daily Ray of Hope"

My photo "Grasp" is featured in today's Sierra Club "Daily Ray of Hope" web feature, along with the following caption and quote by Emerson.

It makes me feel good to contribute to their efforts on behalf of the environment. You can subsribe to the "Daily Ray of Hope" emails here: . You can also submit your nature photographs to the Sierra Club, through a (free) Flickr account! I thought some of my blogger friends who are photographers, might be interested. You can license your contributed works at the Creative Commons site for "attributed--non-commercial--no derivatives" use, as I did.

  5. Hi Bob,

    I used my tiny point-and-shoot SONY digital. It was a glary day, but the forest floor was not getting a lot of light filtering through. I think I used lighting effects in P.S. to increase the brightness, then tweaked the saturation and contrast to bring out the color.

    But it really WAS a pretty fungus!

  6. Anna, I'm sure they would LOVE to use some of your photos in the name of increasing environmental awareness!

    i enjoyed looking at some of your work on Picasa. i wanted to leave a comment but couldn't, because i'm not a member.

  8. Kim, I like Emerson and Thoreau too!

    And the Longfellow poem, "This is the forest primeval...."

    Hope you're having a good weekend...
