  1. Wow! Thanks for nominating me and thanks for the beautiful words! I can't believe you're visually impaired - your photographs totally belie this. And if you are only LEARNING photography now, you are going to be absolutely great when you're experienced - your passion absolutely shines through in all these great photos.(What on earth is an SLR?)

  2. Your most welcome Maree...Yes I am I find it hard some days when the sun refects into my eyes from the sun. I have tried sunglasses that clip onto your glasses to try the cut out the glair. But then it's too dark for me to see what I want to see. Morning time is the best time...the light is just right. Makes it easier to see what I want to see. The rest of the day is a write off. What is an SLR..well it's a camera that has removable lenses. These lenses give you the ability to capture better and more crisp shots. Higher in detail as well. Top of the line stuff so to speak. At times completely hard to compete against!! :)

  3. Hello and thank you so very much for your kind words and for sharing this lovely award with me.

    I love it that you say that I make you think!
    I am so very impressed with your photography.....I imagine that you are seeing through the eyes of love and that's how you capture these images, especially now knowing that you are visually challenged.

    thank you again and all the best wishes from
    Ribbon :-)

  4. Congratulations Crista. You are a deserving recipient of this award. I always love your photos, and your passion for the natural world. One would certainly never guess your vision status from your pictures. And your photos can stand up to the SLR shots! Remember, the camera doesn't take the picture, YOU do!

  5. Hi Crista, Congratulations on being an award winner. Your photography is most excellent.
    I love visiting your Blog, so much to enjoy.
    Thankyou for nominating us, sue says hello and thankyou for your kind words you wrote on our Blog.
    Well done Girl.
