[New Post] Minimalist

The topic of today’s subject, a suggestion from The Weekly Photo Challenge, I have chosen a photo borrowed from Robin’s blog, Reflectionsformysoul. I’d mentioned Robin in my last post. 

This photograph belongs to Robin, but the orples and I thought it was 'simply' beautiful; a perfect entry for the 'Minimalist' topic suggested through The Daily Post.

Wait. Who is that. Oh, no! It’s those silly orples, always jumping in the picture, wanting to be noticed. I think they want to play hide-h-seek with Robin. Check her out here.

Sunday photo Challenge . Nature #2

I have two nature #2 posts this week. This one is actually #3 for the week, but I mislabeled the original #2 and put it under the weekly post by mistake, so this shot is intended to serve a dual purpose. It is a substitute for the first post to make up for my error, and it is a post in itself, just because these trees in their struggle to survive are so cool.

These trees are gripping the embankment for dear life ... literally. If not for their grip in the Earth, they would surly topple and die.

Of course, if you prefer to look up, instead of down, I have more trees (what is more natural than trees?), only these are reaching for the sun, and the moon, and the stars, as they appear to touch the sky, in their salute to the heavens.

From a tiny seed to a pillar of nature, beautiful trees standing tall!

Weekly Photo Challenge. Unusual

This is just a tree, but it was unusual enough for me to park my car, get out and take a photo of it, so I figured, why not share? Certainly the tree has stood the test of time and deserves some respect.

Poor top heavy tree, I wonder how it carries its load?

Weekly Photo Challenge . Contrast #3

When the subject of contrast first came up, this is the photograph I was going to post, but instead I posted the dogwoods against the clear blue sky. Then I posted Olivia and Oscar hitting the beach, since they have felt a little left out lately.

Trees standing bold against a varied background.

So now, let me present more of Mother Nature’s colors showing themselves off. When I took this photo, it was with the intent of possibly working it into some type of fabric wall hanging. I posted an example of a fabricscape in January, based on a different photograph. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done.
