Changes!

Tons of changes happening around here! I've been missing from my website for a little while as life, the day job, and so many other things got my focus instead. Life has been crazy enough that I haven't even been able to dedicate my time to photography either (of course I have been painting though). Hopefully, things are settling down a little now and I can keep this going!

My new website! 

My new website! 

Here's a list of what's been going on website-wise.

  1. I am doing a complete overhaul of the design of my website! I'm pretty excited about this one. It just seems so pretty to me (hopefully you like it too!). This includes the colors, design, and layout. Hopefully, I'm done with the major changes, but if things still move around a little bit, please, be patient with me!
  2. I'm starting to add some of my paintings as a preview of what will be available soon. This will be getting fleshed out a lot more as I get the time. I originally thought about having a separate website for my painting but I just don't have the time to maintain two websites. So hopefully, you won't mind seeing both here. 
  3. My blog has moved from blog.bethwold.com to www.bethwold.com/blog I've been using Blogger forever but I'm so in love with my new website that I want my blog to match. 
  4. My photographs are now available to buy directly from my website! No more having to go to a third party to buy my photographs. 

That's the list so far. Hard to believe this much effort and time can be reduced to 4 bullet points!  Let me know what you think in the comments. Yea or Nay? 

Back from Ireland

Sheep on Inishbofin Island

So it's been a bit quiet here on the blog, part of the reason is that I've been out of the country. Between the trip, and prep for the trip, and now recovery from the trip, I've been a little busy!

So about the trip... I was in Ireland for two and a half weeks. We traveled much of the country and saw many amazing things. Such a beautiful landscape, and depending on where you were, it could change drastically from the landscapes seen elsewhere in the country. I'm still working away at going through my photographs from the trip, and here's a sneak peak of one that I'm fond of.

This was taken right after we arrived on Inishbofin Island(on the west coast of Ireland) via ferry. The weather was extremely windy, and the sea very rough(there were waves above the roof of the ferry!) and I did find it a bit terrifying. However, when we docked I saw this out the window of the ferry. I was in a hurry to get on land and take the photograph before either the sheep moved out of sight, or the sliver of sunlight on the grass disappeared!

I will be posting more from Ireland as I make my way through the photographs. I hope you all are doing well, and that your Summer(for the those in the northern hemisphere) is going well.
