Artist Spotlight # 34.

Submitted by mimi 09/10/08 7:20 AM GMT

We have a surprise artist to spotlight before we get underway again in October. He has always brought the outdoors to the warmth (or coolness) of our homes so that we could see the beauty around us that we otherwise might have missed. He even shot his self-portrait in the bitter cold so that we could meet him in the great outdoors!

I present to you the very talented gerryp

Please take some time to stroll through his
extensive gallery and lets all give him a standing ovation with our congratulatory words.

Gerry, you have managed, through your skilled photography, to bring all the beauty Mother Nature has for us in an up close and personal way. Your images show dedication and skill and the love of the outdoors My most favorite out of all of them is ~cedar waxwing~. I love the detail as well as the moment that you captured the bird's beak taking the berry. Very well done, artistic and delightful!. I *tip* my hat to you for all you have done to deserve this honor.

Well done Mr P

You go to some great lengths to capture such wonderful wildlife / nature shots from good old Canada. :o)
I've often imagined you out in all weathers at unsociable times of the day tracking down Deer, & Foxes etc. Just lately though your uploads have been less frequent I do hope things are well with you.

It's about time, Gerry! some of your shots are simply amazing, and you deserve to be recognized.
I have several of your shots as desktop images on the various computers at work, and when asked "Did you take that?" I respond "I only wish!" You set a high bar for the rest of us to come up to.
Well done!

Hey Gerry! It's still September so I'm not too late in saying - Congratulations on your month in the spotlight!

I'm both awed and a tad envious of your talent in capturing so many exquisite close-ups, especially of the birds. Notably (for me) are the redwing blackbirds and the goldfinches, both of which I've found almost impossible to get close enough to... Your success is simply golden.

You have some beautiful photographs. The only reason I don't use any of them as wallpapers is that you've got frames around the pictures. This looks very strange on my desktop, since some of my icons end up on the frame rather than the photo.

Wow Gerry ... am I ever behind the times. Shame on me. :( So glad to see you in the Artists Spotlight. In my opinion, you're a prime example of how a photographer has steadily improved upon his work at Caedes. I've seen the improvement in the two years plus that I've been a member and have a great deal of respect for your work ethic and talent. This honor was well deserved ... you've become one of the "elite" photographers on the site ... Congrats my friend.
