Intricate

This week’s Daily Post weekly photo challenge is the topic of Intricate and how do we each interpret it. Yesterday morning as I walked out to the beehives to fill up the jars of sugar water, the sun was rising and at the perfect angle on the dandelions that are now in their puffy stage. I ran back in the house to grab my camera and ran back outside to find the perfect specimen for this topic. I had lots of help from the cats, particularly as I lay prone on the grass to catch this shot. I think having a cat on my back was good luck for this….what do you think?
IntricateI  really love seeing the detail of each seed pod, as well as the texture of the stem. This also has got me saving up so I can buy a macro lens as I’m finding this type of photography to be challenging, fun and rewarding. The details of nature are amazing when we stop and really look!

Clouds

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!

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Close Up

Cee - Closeup Black and WhiteNothing like coffee from a french press – I loved the steam which looked really interesting both in color and black and white.
I also captured Sparks after she had a drink out of the bathroom faucet, I loved the water droplets stuck to her fur and whiskers.
