I love a sky so full of color, it looks painted on.

Photo Friday: Back Drops

September 8, 2017

Sometimes, humid mornings bring out more than spider webs, and foggy lenses.  This particular morning, the humidity had left some water drops on the back of two Japanese beetles, which brought out the color on their wings.

First Look Photo: Vertical Landscape

December 7, 2016

This is from my photo challenge #5.  In this challenge I was to break the norm of horizontal landscapes, and shoot a vertical landscape instead.

In this shot, I love how all three elements work together to create a pattern of lines running in the same direction.  The foreground is the ducks, the water is the middle ground where there are a few ducks to add tension by breaking the pattern, and the land and the orange sky is the background.

Photo Friday: To Bee

August 5, 2016

This week I was out shooting for my school assignments, when I happened on some cone flowers that were buzzing with bumble bees.  With my love of shooting close ups, I couldn’t resist the opportunity.  It wasn’t part of my school assignment, but you take the shots as they come.

Photo Friday: Color Me Puzzled

April 17, 2015

When I was in first grade, I had a 24 day flu.  During the recovery I had a lot of time to watch tv, and do a ton of puzzles.  Since 1976, when I received my first camera, I have tried to take pictures that were not only beautiful, but could be made into challenging puzzles.  I tried contacting Milton Bradley, but they told me they only use photos taken by employees.  What that means is that I am now sitting on thousands of photos that can be used as good puzzles, until I get the right idea how to proceed.

Today’s photograph is one such picture I took this week, as the backdrop for my new phone.  I didn’t realize my phone takes full size, high resolution, pictures, and once I saw it I knew this would be the most challenging puzzle picture I have taken, to date.

I hope you all enjoy it.
