I love it! The background is beautiful without being distracting and the header is also lovely. I think some kind of small detail using the blue from the header would be nice.
I think a header is the main thing people look at after they've read the post they want to read (or were linked from)...and this one tells everyone, briefly, what you're all about! So that is the main goal. Your photography is beautiful, I wonder if you used this same idea but put the words over a section of one of your photos- exposure turned up or lightened so the words show through? Or have the middle faded out so as to add your title. How would that look? Just another idea you can mess around with. :) Mary
I, too, think that you should incorporate some of your photography into the header. This will immediately tell people what this blog is about, plus it's a beautiful and personal touch. Not to mention that your photography rocks.:)
Thanks so much you three for your help! I'm going to try to tinker around with some of your suggestions when I have time. Things have gotten quite busy this January. Hope you are all staying warm and having a great new year :)
