Spanish Moss









I've been wanting to visit the deep south for quite some time. In particular, I was drawn to and inspired by  the haunting photographs of Sally Mann. When Heather Evans Smith announced that she was organizing a photography workshop in Savannah, I took that as a sign to make the journey. Standing among these magnificent trees was such a powerful experience. They really did take my breath away, dripping as they do with their magic.

Love Love Love these images. I have been to Savannah several times, and these images capture the essences of the area perfectly. Amazing imagery.

Love your point of view, Irene. I can only imagine how wonderful it must have been to visit and photograph Savannah! Hopefully it was the trip of a lifetime!

O, the trees; I am so happy you shot trees. The trees you shoot always come alive with mysteriousness. The first photo I saw of yours was "spying on a tree"; been in love with your work ever since.
