Week 15: Anonymous

Week 15 of the 52-week photography challenge. Inspiration: Anonymous “This week’s inspiration is Anonymous. Interpret this how you wish.” At first I had no idea how to approach this week’s challenge.  After looking up the definition for inspiration, I found it in the third definition. “3 : lacking individuality, distinction, or recognizability” (Credit http://www.merriam-webster.com) On…

Week 13: New Beginnings

Week 13 of the 52-week photography challenge. Storytelling: New Beginnings “Our world is full of circular patterns; as some things end, others begin. Tell us a story of a New Beginning.” One of the first areas to pop when spring comes around.  This small area is always one of my first signals of the change…

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!

Hard to believe March has drawn to a close.  The forest is now waking up and literally changing before our eyes on a daily basis.  April will be a fun photography month! My absolute favorite tree on the property.  This is only the lower third.  I love how it bends out and again as it…

Changing Seasons – April

April has been the most dramatic in terms of changes in our forest.  It has been amazing to watch new life spring up.  I always love watching the trees go from bare to buds to full leaves.  With this beautiful spring transformation, I am breaking the “rules” by sharing more than 20 photos.  Some I…

Sustainable Sunday – End of Year 1

It has been almost a year since we moved to our little home in the country.  What a year it has been, full of wonderful changes!  After living through all 4 seasons out here, I realize how in tune we are with nature.  Each season brought with it so many new things to enjoy.  Spring…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Change

Although we are entering fall here in the U.S, I choose this photo from the spring for this week’s photo challenge.  With the “change” in the air it’s nice to reflect on a season past.  This past spring, these little guys (well their parents) were quite noisy as they “called” for mates.  Here are the…

Sustainable Sundays – Trail maintenance

When moving to our new place, with 107 acres, I knew trails would be a top priority for me.  The previous owner had made several hiking, biking and 4 wheeler trails on the property.  My job, find them, mark them and map them, all before spring. Once spring hit and life re-emerged doing all of…
