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…)
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…)
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. We say good morning to our local river as we drive over on our way to school, they see me looking closely with my camera at tiny pretty things where ever we are walking, they are more aware than I realize sometimes.

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. Quite a place to spend time. Allowing worries to wander up into the treetops while a silent blanket of peace replaces them. I am thankful she watches over my home, my boys, my worries. So thankful.

I photographed this tree last spring, it is located in the middle of the parking lot where my son meets for gymnastics. I wondered how it would fare this year. (more…)
When this hyacinth first started blooming it was only the tight pine cone like center. I noticed it right away and thought it was an odd flower I had never seen before. (more…)
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…)
