Until I moved out here to the wild west, the big sky country…I never saw clouds like the ones here in the west. I would guess it’s simply due to the fact that there is more open space. I decided on a mix of clouds from an impending summer storm, to angel-like clouds, to a storm brewing over Devils Tower, to Mammatus clouds in the neighborhood. Summer in Wyoming leaves no shortage of cloud picture opportunities – I can’t wait to see what this coming summer has in store!
I have this old gnarled branch in my front garden, this close-up is a piece of the middle: And my Christmas Cactus plants are blooming again. This pink one is by my sliding glass door on the south side of the house – as you can see she is catching the afternoon sun here, as well as a stray cat hair (shocking, I know!) Next to my Hoya is this white cactus – I actually got on the floor and took the picture up in to the flower: To enjoy more from this challenge, please visit Cee’s page: http://ceenphotography.com/2015/04/14/cees-fun-foto-challenge-close-ups/
Rosslyn Chapel is one of the most interesting churches I’ve ever been in. Construction began in 1446 and services are still held there to this date. Photography inside was not allowed (so I bought the book of course) so this photo is from the exterior….the photos I took just don’t do it justice. It is a place to see in person; to wander the grounds and feel; to sit in and be still. You can feel the energy of centuries of people who sat there before you, it is amazing.
I haven’t played with Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge in ages, but last month’s Photo101 got me back into blogging again and I’ve had so much fun meeting lots of new fellow photog-bloggers that I look at everything now as if through my camera lens.
This week’s theme is Colorful Monotones where 90% of the photo has to be of the same color. Hope you like!
