Long time no blog…

Wow, I had no idea it has been so long since I last made a blog post. It’s as if all of 2021 and 2022 didn’t even exist. I almost wish, since these have been especially difficult years for me. Amongst all of my ongoing medical issues, I have found some peace and tranquility in a few photo shoots though. I’ll just post a few favorites here from 2021 and hope to catch up again next month with a 2022 review.

The following images were taken on a cross country road trip in October 2021, which included photo stops in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and West Virginia for the most part. A bucket list trip I took with my sister.

I hope you enjoy the images!

2020 in retrospect

2020 comes to a welcome end tomorrow, and I’ve been thinking about this last year and all it has been. While it had so many challenges and disappointments, looking through my images from the year, I was pleasantly surprised at all the good memories I had and the images I was able to create. I’m not going to go into detail about each image but I had to narrow this down from about 50 favorites, which included wildlife, nature and even some people. But, staying true to my passion, I’ve settled on 20 landscapes for my tribute to the year. Watch for another post with some other subjects.

Like everyone else, I am happy to be leaving 2020 behind and looking forward to 2021 with hope for brighter days ahead.

2019 Year in Review by Linda Lantzy

Landscape photography~ No other activity brings my heart such joy as  experiencing sunrise surrounded by the fragrance of mountain wildflowers, watching a lake steam in the first light of an autumn morning, discovering new locations both near and far and listening to the babbling of a mountain stream, or watching the last of the sunset colors fade into night…

2019 was a year filled with all of these things and more and for that I am thankful.

It is with a significant sadness in my heart that I will embark upon the medical challenges presented to me going forward into 2020, but also with hope that I may continue pursuing these things that fulfill me.
