Designed by world renowned architect Hossein Amanat, this monument in  Tehran was originally named 'Shahyad' or in honor of the king (Shah) but is now know as Azadi (freedom) monument at the center of the square with the same name. More than anything it has been a symbol of changes in Iranian society in recent  decades. #63101337  © Payam Nashery - Photoarts
Fringed gentians blooming not far from some active geysers in Yellowstone National Park, the Upper Geyser Basin trail.  As a gardener, I'm always interested in the wildflowers in an area and gentians of any sort are a pretty rare treat.  The color is not altered in any way.  They are really this incredible indigo color.  I was amazed at your response to my shot of the strawberry being dropped into the glass of water.  I treasure all the comments and, especially, appreciated the suggestions for improving the shot by using a black or dark background or making a tighter crop.  I'm going to try this again and will try to incorporate your suggestions.  Thanks, everyone!  I've put together a few calendars for 2011 --- the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and one on the Garden of the Gods.  I'm going to visit a bunch of stores tomorrow to see if anyone would be willing to sell them.  I love taking the photos but I hate marketing myself.  I'm not good at it and am dreading the process.  Hope you have nicer plans for your day than I have for mine!
Unique formation of these mountains made for a wonderful aerial photography opportunity over the northern Canadian Rockies. #55121322  © Payam Nashery - Photoarts
Day 10 - The sun is reflected in water droplets on fir tree needles; please look at this in the large size and you'll see the starbursts in all the water drops.  I took this shot a couple of months ago when we had our first bout of hoarfrost.  I dashed out the take photos, but the sun was melting the frost faster than I could capture it.  I ended up spending about two hours taking photos of water drops all over the garden and yard.  I remember being so excited that I forgot to get breakfast for my poor long-suffering hubby.  You all posted a lot of great images today.  I really enjoyed looking through them all.  It is amazing how much talent is here on smugmug.  I am constantly being inspired to try new things by all the creativity I see here.  So, thanks, everyone for being SUCH an inspiration!  Hope your day is lovely.  I know Dave is getting buried in snow again in Seattle.  I think we're all ready for winter to end.
More sweet little crocus, such a welcome sight after our long long winter.... 04.18.15

04-18-2015 "Tear Drops"  One of the blooms on my iris after a hard rain.  With the petals drooping and water droplets it made me think is was sad and crying.  I really appreciate you taking the time to comment on my photos.  They are always welcome. Donna
Geological processes going back millions of years created these rust color hills made of bentonite clay, unique to this part of Oregon's Painted Hills National Monument. Spectacular abstract on a sunny winter day with blue skies and a light dusting of snow! #12011555  © Payam Nashery - Photoarts
