Walking In the Trees

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt In the Trees.

A small selection of photos taken on my walks around the neighborhood since the New Year.

A is for Abstract

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: An Alphabet Challenge – Subjects That Begin with the Letter A prompt.

I enjoy these sort of challenges as it allows me to come up with a theme. Sometimes I take a sideways look at the prompt and head off in a direction that only has a tenuous connection to the challenge.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of abstract images. Possibly because I had photographed a few abstract images of ripples on the local bay this past summer and autumn.

I briefly considered a post exclusively of ripples but decided that would be more appropriate if the prompt was the letter R.

In the end I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken over the past 35 years.

Foxtail Barley. Detail of the seed heads, it was more about the colour than the plant.

Paper Birch Bark and Snow

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White or cream colours.

We got up to an inch or so of snow yesterday morning so I had my white. When I went for a walk I noticed the snow stuck to the trunk of a Paper Birch tree. That was my, sort of, cream.
