CFFC: Reminder of Nature’s Beauty
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is reminds you of nature’s beauty.
CFFC: Here Comes the Sun
Cee is featuring songs as inspiration for photography for her Fun Foto Challenge. And this week it’s one of my most favorite songs, Here Comes the Sun!
It’s been a long cold lonely winter
Here comes the sun
That ice is slowly melting
The smiles returning to the faces
APAW & FOTD: Hibiscus
I took this photo about 3:45 pm today – I liked the way the backlit sunshine brought out the details of the flower! This is for Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week challenge with the topic of “natural lighting” and Cee’s Flower of the Day 8/15/21.
Life in Purple
For Jude’s Travel Words, Life in Colour, this month’s word is the color purple.
A more vibrant shade of purple are these rhododendrons.
Purple displays at Lightscape, a holiday event at Chicago Botanic Gardens
Marine life (corals) at Brookfield Zoo
Purple in sunrises and sunsets (sunrise in Tanzania, sunsets on Chicago expressway and the Caribbean Sea)
Purple signs (Quebec City & Rio de Janeiro)
Last Bright Square is a Rainbow
For the last day of Becky’s April Bright Squares, this is a (double) rainbow, a perfect and complete arc that we were treated to yesterday evening at 7:00 after a brief storm blew through our area. Afterward, just about all my friends that live around here posted their rainbow photos on Facebook! I mean, WOW! This was a spectacular sight! A fitting end to a very BRIGHT month! Thank you, Becky!
CFFC: Winter Textures
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Textures. These photos were all taken in the past three months – winter months.
Textures on screens in winter
Textures on water and ice
Textures of tree bark
Three different textures in a still life on my mantel
Texture of my favorite sweater
April Squares: Sunrise, Sunset
Becky posted a gorgeous sunrise for her Bright Square today, but I’m rarely up early enough for that! Even so, I have these beauties in my archives – a sunrise in Tanzania and a sunset in the Baltic Sea. In my (limited) experience, sunrises tend to be more subtle than sunsets, but beautiful nonetheless.
April Square: Golden Sky
There is a saying that all clouds have a silver lining. In the case of this image, the clouds have a tinge of golden lining, lit by a September late afternoon sun. This bright scene is my contribution today for Becky’s April Square: Bright.
Weekend Sky: Late Winter Sunset
This is my first time participating in Hammad Rais’s Weekend Sky challenge!
It’s been a bit difficult to capture the sunset where we live – our house faces north and a row of houses blocks the western sky. But before Daylight Savings started, I would take walks in the late afternoon and sometimes be lucky to capture a beautiful sunset. These were taken on March 5, when the ponds were still partially frozen and remnants of February snows still remained.
