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.

Thanks for taking the time to comment Jan :) I'll see what I can do to edit "compliments" – I liked the current crop because it captured the height of the peak and, well, I just liked the feel of it better. But, I can see that the extra white space might not be ideal (although, I've noticed there are some photographs on Minted that don't have an even crop …hmmm) – beautiful imagery from you as always :) Best of luck!

Aloha Jan :) Thanks so much for the likes! You sure managed to get some beautiful shots in Hawaii (quite the contrast to your images of frost and snow -haha). I hope many of them resonate with the voters – best of luck!

Hi Jan, it felt great to see that you liked my submission "waiting for the thaw." So many of your images really capture the essence of a place, so it won't surprise me a bit to see you rack up some more wins/picks :)
