Stormy Weather ~ Sunday Stills ~ Clouds

Sometimes clouds offer a fine film through which light filters and bends, and then there are the clouds that cumulate and command attention!

Blue Hydrangea ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Rule of Thirds

This photo is one of a series in which my focus was to study the blue of the flowers when silhouetted against a bright blue, sunny day sky. The “rule of thirds” is what pulls your eye into this particular shot.

Spring Wine ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Symmetry

With family here for a collective birthday celebration, and a temperature of 75f yesterday, my sister and I enjoyed our wine while talking by the pond and on the deck. What a joy to be part of a dear family, and to have most everyone near enough to be together often.

IMG_1273This week’s photo challenge is to share an image of symmetry — we were encouraged to bend the theme in any way we like.

“And wine gladdens the heart of man.”

Psalm 103 (105):15
