About Jan Kessel

It's the magic in nature that speaks to me. With my photography, I try and capture the simplicity of the moment found in the beauty of the natural world. I live at 1100 feet on a mountain in Washington, surrounded by trees and flowers. I also love to travel and be at the ocean. I am constantly inspired and restored by the beauty of nature.

Jan, Thank you so much for all the likes, the helpful comments and the very kind words! I am so pleased you enjoy my Aqua Storm. I love the colors myself. I will make sure all my images are to specification. I feel like a cat in a seafood store, I don't know which way to look next!!! You have been a great ally to get me started out in the right direction. Thank you so very much!! Von
