This morning’s sunrise offered multiple textured clouds in the sky. I’m glad I woke up early enough not to miss this spectacular sight!


Weekly Photo Challenge: FOCUS


I present my photo of the week “Focus” with this pic. The woman in the foreground (who happens to be my daughter) draws the eye to view her, but then the eye is drawn to the young man in the red hat (my grandson), and ultimately further out where two persons are strolling along the shoreline.

This was taken with my Motorola Droid Maxx phone near Long Beach, WA.

This is one of my absolutely favorite photos, taken this way quite accidentally I might add, and I just love the peaceful scene. I hope you do too!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

In the outdoors animals tend to naturally know how to relax without any prompting. I’ve presented two photos to help justify my previous statement!
In the first photo Mallard duck mates share in a time of quiet solitude as they meander through the lake’s edge and in the second photo a cat relaxes – what cats do best! – on the roof top as she soaks up the warmth of the sun in her glossy black coat.
