The Changing Seasons – December

As 2016 comes to a close here is my last submission for The Changing Seasons photo challenge.  It has been a pleasure participating in this challenge.  It helped me get out & take more photos.  As for 2017, I am not sure what my blog has in store just yet.  I plan to spend the…

WPC – Retrospective

Retrospective is perfect for the Weekly Photo Challenge.  As I was editing my photos for this month’s Changing Season’s post, I was thinking it would be nice to do a post showcasing one photo from each month.  Then I check the photo challenge for this week and bam, perfect timing. At the beginning of 2016,…

Changing Seasons – November

After working my Nikon hard during October, my camera took a break during the month of November.  I took less than 50 photos with my camera the entire month!  Leaving me with very little variety to share for this month’s installment of November. However, I took more with my phone & shared those on Instagram….

Changing Seasons – October

October has been a wonderful fall month with mild temperatures.  I love the fall.  As nature prepares to go dormant for the winter, it puts on one last dazzling display of colors.  Click on any image above to view a larger version.

Changing Seasons – September

September marks the time to say goodbye to summer and usher in the fall.  Personally, I am embracing this change and all that it brings.  Through my yoga practice, I have learned this time of year is all about enjoying all that we have & letting go of that which no longer serves us.  Much…

Changing Seasons – July/August

It has been a busy and fun summer.  In fact so much fun, I missed posting for July.   With the hot & humid weather, I have avoided hiking, leading to less photography.  My Nikon is ready for cooler temperatures. Here is my submission for July & August! Hover over any image above for a…

The Changing Seasons – June

July 1st!  It cannot be.  June was here and quickly exited.  Throughout the month gardens and crops grew quickly.   Spiders went to work making their webs throughout the forest.   Heat and humidity set in for a while, with pleasant temperatures this past week. Here is a selection of my photos from the month…

Changing Seasons – May

The month of May arrived and promptly flew by.  As is evident from my late Changing Seasons post.  Granted, it was a busy month of visiting with family at a reunion to family visiting us and finally ending with a wonderful weekend spent in our old neighborhood for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500!…

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…

Changing Seasons – March

March has been unusually warm at times.  Spring is here! We spent an afternoon on our neighbor’s lake enjoying the warm weather.  Josie went for her first boat ride & played with his dogs + a wolf (all through a fence). During one of our hikes, Josie chased a raccoon up a tree.  He was…

The Changing Seasons – February

This monthly challenge has really inspired me to get out and take more photographs.  With an abundance of subject matter to photograph and a challenge to motivate me, my Nikon has been venturing out more.  In the past, I would often leave my camera behind, but now I find myself reaching for it.  “I have…

The Changing Seasons – January 2016

This monthly photo challenge is new to my blog for 2016.  The idea behind this challenge comes from Cardinal Guzman’s blog.   Living on 100 forested acres, this challenge really appealed to me.  I try and get out for a hike or a 4 wheeling excursion several times a week.  Last year, I found it fascinating…
