About the October (and November) 2011 Header Image

The most recent header photo served as the header image of Summit to Shore for two months, August and September, because it was both a summit and a shore photo. I took the shot from a summit but overlooking a shore scene.

This month I am switching to something completely different, an original colored pencil sketch rather than an original photograph. I sketched this during the past couple of months, scanning the original sketch and saving it as a jpg image. I am thinking about adopting it as the semi-permanent header image of Summit to Shore rather than posting a new header image in December.

What do you think? Should I keep this header image for several months, or post a new one in December.

I vote yes! I have no idea if you draw a lot but am thrilled to see your work. Pictures are lovely, you always have inspirational shots. But your drawing is a piece of your soul as is your blog.
I draw some. I don't think I draw well and would certainly never show it to the world, I thought. But having left my sketch pad at church accidentally, more than one of my church friends commented on how 'thoughtful' my sketches were. We talked a lot about why I was drawing that subject. And it was good for me and illuminating to them. (Or so they said, maybe graciously???)
I vote for the sketch.

Thanks, Sylvia. Unfortunately, the poll dialogue box was not up and working when you logged on. Perhaps you will visit again and answer the question in the box near the top right.
