Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge “Summer – Fire”

As spring emerges for us here, I look forward to the summer too.  Here are my submissions for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: During the summer wild black raspberries are scattered throughout our forest.  I love going for a hike and snacking on these tasty berries.  Usually, I bring some back to enjoy! Another sure sign…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Security

While we were out and about today, I snapped this photo with my cell phone as we filled up our water jugs at the local spring. This photo represents security to me.  Wide open spaces, very few people or buildings with sky, trees, green grass and a farmer’s field where food is grown. Everyone’s idea…

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!

The Ramparts of Quebec City are the only remaining fortified city walls in North America, north of Mexico.” (Source:  Wikipedia)

Weekly Photo Challenge – Wish

My wish is simple.  Peace for all beings on this lovely planet along with a deep respect and protection of our natural world. This photograph embodies my wish simply from the memories it evokes.  I remember being at absolute peace as I sat on this very rock.  As I watched and listened to the waves…

Weekly Photo Challenge – The Road Taken

The road to Devils Tower in Wyoming. At the end of our trip to the western U.S., we decided to stop in at Devils Tower.  Shane had been there before and was eager to go back.  I had never been.  As the surrounding landscape seemed less than exciting I was starting to wonder about this…
