TAKE MY PIX, PLEASE - STEVE JOACHIM

Welcome! This is the first of the "Take My Pix, Please" blogs carrying pictures for writers to take for free and use on blogs, for book covers, websites. No compensation, no attribution necessary. My son, Steve, took some incredible shots on his college study trip to the Colorado Plateau. I have received his permission to give these photos away. So he has the first blog. These 20 pix were all taken by Steve Joachim. I hope you enjoy them. Please let us know what you think.

Jean, bless you and your husband! Romance authors ROCK. These are beautiful photos--right now none of my books take place anywhere that they would work, but I'm saving them anyway, just to enjoy. Thanks, M. S.

Thank you Jean. Please thank Steve for his generosity. These are breathtaking! I saw one I might like to try to alter for a website header. Would that be acceptable? To alter them slightly?

These are amazing photos. Your son is very talented and generous.

I have a new release coming out later this year and one of the scenes takes place in a similar location. I'd like to use one of the pictures on my blog when I start taking about my new book.

Jean and Steve, thanks so much.

Thank you for your generosity. Your son's pics are incredible. Unfortunately, the location of my work differs so as much as I'd love to use them, it won't fit the context. But what a talented son you have!
