Gary, this is so magnificent! I just love this vision. And your vision and style always, to me, truly convey this simple yet complex "nature of nature." The beauty that we see here in the wildflowers, as they are lit by the shining sun and standing on "stage front" to the golden poppies behind, just sings a choris of peace and beauty. I love your work so very much. Bravo sir!!
