Weekly Photo Challenge – Surprise

“Surprise, here I am!” While hiking last year I stumbled upon this morel mushroom (along with 5 others in the same area).  Although it was morel season, I was not actively looking for them.  I was both surprised and excited to find my first morel mushroom. The time is upon us again and I am…

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…

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,…
