Weekly Photo Challenge – Wanderlust

This challenge came at the perfect time.  I have been on vacation this week and had not planned to post.  But I had to after checking the challenge.   As we are driving back I am reflecting on our fantastic trip to Largo/Clearwater, FL.  It has been 7 years since I was last here and…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Earth

In celebration of Earth Day coming up, I reflect back to this beautiful view of Mt. Rainier and the wildflowers in bloom.  There is so much beauty to be enjoyed on this wonderful planet we call home.  Let’s remember to respect our mother earth as she provides us with food, shelter, beauty, water, air, and…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Spring/Wood

This challenge was perfect for going out in our beautiful forest as spring starts its emergence.  Normally, I look for photos in my archives to go along with the challenges.   For this one, I took the Nikon out on a quest for spring/wood.  Easy to find!

Bent trees, an oasis, spring, space & time travel. March recap!
