Beautiful World – Top Two

 Beautiful World is the blog that for the last eighteen months has given me encouragement and the pleasure of experimenting with my photography. I was therefore so excited when I read a post there this morning, discussing the blogs success and its statistics, to discover that two of my photos took first and second place as most viewed photos! Wow, what a surprise  that was, I am so thrilled that I am sharing them here with you again today.  The first one some of you may already have seen as it was one of the first photos I posted on this new blog.

Wild Clematis

Sunset Lago di Bolsena

The second placed photo was one from this series of four sunsets over Lago di Bolsena, I do not know exactly which one got the most views, but as they work as a set, sharing them all again.

  24. Your success shouldn't come as too much of a surprise... you've got a great eye, and the technique to get your vision down in digits.

    Those top two places were gained on merit, purely that.

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
