I just realized why I like those pictures with the orange sky and wires…it’s symbolic of courage to me…the courage to step past the wire (my own fears that hold me back) and into the dream (the thing I yearn to do)…they say a picture is worth a thousand words..
That is awesome that you have found a useful meaning & metaphor for these pictures. thanks for sharing
That barbed wire is really interesting: both flat and textured simultaneously…
Really love the desert mountains, the layered image is amazing, and I liked the teeny camels too… 🙂 It really gives you the feeling of the huge flatness of the desert. Great work! Thanks for sharing!
The scenery can be breathtaking. Thanks for stopping by.
I love all these pictures 🙂 My favourite in this set are the trees with the sun behind, beautiful!
thanks Karen, I am glad to hear you like them
Outstanding! Thanks for sharing…
Dan, I posted the paintings I made of your photos on my blog today. Take a look: http://decamvilledesign.wordpress.com/2012/09/04/day-205-paintings-of-afghanistan/
I had fun painting them! Thanks for the inspiration! Feel free to download. ~Patricia
thank you so much Patrcia. Your paintings are great!
Your team members are more than welcome to download the paintings too. They might enjoy them as well.
Thank you. I will let them know
Love that golden light – so uplifting. Could use more of that. It’s the color of the sky right before the sun sets anywhere, even in New York. There’s a real peace in seeing that.
yes, beautiful sunrises and sunsets are an absolute treat
What great shots
thank you for your comment Joanne
As always great pictures
and thank you once again for your kind words
DAN! When you first subscribed to my blog, I clicked on your gravatar and saw your other blog sites, but I don’t remember seeing the link for this one. I just decided to visit again, and I’m blown away by what you’re doing here (uh, maybe not the best analogy). You have a new follower. (And I promise not to “unfollow” and sink your stats–I read that post). Your photos are outstanding (in the field and out).
Thank you very much. I am glad you have joined me.
