--Two of Lynne's photos were chosen as the Nature Conservancy judges' "Favorites" in the climate category and the plant/fungi category in the 2022 International Photography Contest of over 100,000 entries. Didn't make the final winners list, but Lynne will have another nature photograph coming out in a journal in October and later in a book anthology.  
The two photos from the Nature Conservancy Contest:

                      Waterful

I sank my feet into mud,

walked closer to the falls I’d come for.

Knee-high in water, I stopped to listen.

I’d come to see the river

spill over along the rocks and run hard

down its vertical moss face with a sound

that I would want to remember.

Between these parted cliffs

granite holds sky and earth. 

I am no one here.

But the rock retains heat

and the fish stay cool.

Pools of years gather

depths not known.

The water remains reliable,

inviting as I enter.  Its breath,

pulse, soothe.

The water I can taste now

as it touches.  I sink into oblivion.

Overflow is everywhere.
