7 Day Nature Challenge

7 Day Nature Challenge/ Day 7

I’ve really enjoyed this challenge, a change of pace from my one photograph and poems. Here are more wonderful flowers from my neighbor’s yard. So much color and drama pouring out of these flowers. I could sit on the sidewalk and photograph them for hours. (more…)

7 Day Nature Challenge/ Day 6

We went to our favorite beach yesterday (College Cove just outside of Trinidad CA), there was an extra low tide in the morning. We found starfish, sea enemies, crabs, barnacles, muscles and many extra rocks to climb and explore. The clouds assembled near the end of our time there. We are fortunate to live so close to such rugged, wild yet accessible beauty. I chose to share scenic images from our experience for today. (more…)

7 Day Nature Challenge/ Day 5

I thought these images fit both the nature challenge as well as the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme this week is, “Future” and you can find more images HERE.

When I became a mother, I knew I would encourage my boys through adventure and curiosity to love nature. It is my way of ensuring the future of this beautiful planet is in good hands. And, everyday I work hard to remind them to look and see all the natural beauty that surrounds them.

7 Day Nature Challenge/ Day 4

Redwoods, they are majestic silent and massive. This particular beauty lives 8 feet from the back corner of my house. Its trunk is so massive there are two 250 ft. trees growing from it.

7 Day Nature Challenge/ Day 1

I said yes to the challenge from Pike at ArtKorppi II, post nature images for 7 days. Her images remind me of walking silently through nature, she peeks quietly through her neck of the woods giving me a sense of what it must be like to be a small animal living where she lives. I adore the perspective she offers through her lens. Please do take a look at her blog if you love to get lost in nature. And, if you are interested in participating in this challenge as well please let me know in the comments. I will nominate 7 bloggers on day 7. (more…)
