Water – flowing, sparkling, transparent and tranquil – featured prominently in my recent shoots in Chile. Multiple drives and walks along the glittering coast, and a morning spent photographing María Cecilia’s rose strewn pool, all linked by aquamarine-hued, aquatic beauty, resulted in this combined series of images.
Grey gulls soaring just inches above the pounding surf.
I love the way the sea foam resembles a lace-edged tablecloth.
Fallen leaves and petals in the pool mimic the textures of sea foam and sand.
This may not be a typical November post as many of you are experiencing autumn, or even winter, weather. But I thought you might enjoy a glimpse of sun, surf and roses to brighten the week ahead. I’m grateful you are in my life and I hope your days are filled with joy.

Autumn has arrived and with it the time for our annual journey to the Southern Hemisphere to central Chile to visit family and friends. Once again, I am so, so lucky to stay a few days with my dear friend María Cecilia in her mountain sanctuary in the Andean foothills. The beauty and magic she has created here, and so generously shares, is breathtaking and transporting. This year, my timing was perfect to witness and capture her abundant roses at their peak. I have photographed rose gardens all over the world but, truly, none compares to hers.
Arches are covered and heavy with fragrant, perfect blooms.
Her home is a dream of serenity, beauty and stylish creativity.
Here is my dear friend, such a beautiful spirit, amongst her roses. One day soon, she will be leaving this property for a new adventure, a new creation – let’s all wish her so much love, joy and happiness.
My previous post from María Cecelia’s garden last year is here.
Thank you, as always, for your visits. I will be posting more this week from Chile, including the stunning coast and more of my friend’s amazing roses. You can also see so much more of María Cecilia’s home at her blog. I honestly can never thank her enough for all she shares with so many of us around the world. I am greatly privileged to know her.
p. s. I’m posting daily on Instagram, too, @georgiannalane. Hope to see you there!
Hello, friends! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have had a taste of these summery images but here’s a full serving of flowery, sorbet-colored treats.
So many beautiful field flowers from my dear friend Erin at Floret Flower Farm.
In other news, I’m creating a small fleet of calendars, for 2015 for my shops and for 2016 and 2017 for my publishers. And editing away on my European photos, more of which will appear here very soon. And all while enjoying our garden and the incredible Seattle summer weather. We love traveling all over the world but our summer hearts belong right here.
Wishing you the most lovely week ahead! Thank you for stopping by.
