Nature Photos

These photos are ones I have taken over the years. As I was preparing this section (Nov, 2022) I asked our daughter, Jena Ann (Shapiro) Huston, who is an amazing photographer, if she would look at and comment. You will see her comments below on several of them.

Jena: Wow, poppers,I feel so honored that you sought out my advice. The pictures are beautiful, you also have a beautiful eye. I looked at each picture in depth, and below is my commentary on each.  Love, love you so much! Fun project! Thank you for including me. Love, Jena


Jena: Shadow of the trees behind the window shades, with the stained glass in the corner – beautiful in a haunting way. Love the stained glass how it is similar to what you are seeing outside from inside.




Jena: Sunset – beautiful, you know I am bias towards all sunsets



Jena: Green tree branch – very pretty, but very simple nature (dad note: this is a ginko tree. Ginkos are one of the oldest living trees in the world. Note the heart shape leaves. aww, love!)



Jena: Zen Garden – lush greenery, I know that garden



Jena: Aww, looks like main beach, so still and pristine
