Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate…web version of web by Webb

This morning’s been so relaxing (almost 2 hours on trails in the park taking photos and renewing my soul), that I found myself at the grocery store when my alarm went off, indicating five minutes until the photo challenge theme would be posted.  What was wrong with me?  I wasn’t at home, hunched over my keyboard, ready to meet the challenge as quickly as possible!  Heavens!

That’s relaxation for you and just so you know, I didn’t even speed on the way home.  Before I forget, the theme is “Intricate“, something found everywhere in nature and in the human body.  Intricacy is one of the reasons I can’t believe in evolution.  Not meaning to start any arguments, but to me, it beggars belief to believe that all these intricacies just happened to happen.

Several years ago during a wonderful trip to Cape May, New Jersey, I went out one morning to walk in the fog.  By sheer chance, I glanced to the side at just the right time to see this intricate bit of nature, enhanced by the fog drops. Soul food of the most filling kind!

    I really like the words leading up to your photo – and Cee has a web in her post too – but so cool how they both differ and have nice elements. In yours, I really like the back blue – it gives the web and its jeweled drops a nice base.
    and I like the mention of a design – and while I believe that things can evolve – a species has never morphed into another species – also – it makes certain people “less than” other people – and so sure things adapt and evolve – but just like I could not get an airplane from a bunch of steel left out int he yard, I also believe a Creator designed all of these intricacies – and if He choose to do it with a large bang and spoke it using light – that seems plausible and nice take on the wpc 🙂 ❤

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the words as well as the photo. I haven’t seen Cee’s yet, but I’m sure it’s lovely. I believe in a Creator, too, and also that there can be evolution within a species but not to something else. If the latter were true, I’d expect one day to go past monkey island at the zoo and see a naked person trying to get off. 🙂

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Happy weekend.

        yeah – that is funny to word it that way about the zoo – but I think the claim is that it takes “many years” – but the holes in the theory are many and also at the end of the day it comes down to what I know in my heart. And I like that you said you were not trying to start an argument – said so nicely – and usually refrain from even commenting about evolution notes because it can be so hot and just a tough topic – so I am glad it was mentioned here so nicely,…
        happy weekend to you too

  11. Beautiful. I did a similar shot last summer. I don’t really like spiders, but spider webs are just amazing.

  12. Janet, you spied a beauty, showing the intersection of nature and human nature.

    • Happy Friday to you, Sally. This morning I enjoyed several hours of intersecting nature and human nature (mine.) Such a refreshing time!

      • I would always opt to be in nature over technology. A trusty lens is excluded, which in some ways helps me see nature more fully. There are moments when I just must be–nature and me. Sounds as though that was your experience.

      • This was a photo walk for me as well, as I’m usually walking for both exercise and to look around (and take some photos with my phone). But today I took my Nikon with the telephoto lens and my phone and went “off-road”, off the main trails and into the woods, by the river, etc. Got really close to a young buck and since he stood still looking back at me the entire time I stood there, I managed to get a few rather good photos. I have another area to walk in the next time I do this.

  13. those glittering spider webs are the only pretty reason I can stand a spider… as long as I don’t see it! 😉

  14. My my Miss Janet. What a super shot. Mabruk! (Congrats – in Arabic!)

  15. Fantastic image for the challenge, Janet. It really is a very intricate miracle of nature. 🙂

  16. Such a stunning capture. Love this so much

    GOSH… It’s definitely gorgeous Janet. Those sparklings make it looks like jewelery…

  22. What a dazzling web! So is the headline. Intricate . . . Web Version. LOL. Wish I’d thought of that!

    Perfect image for the challenge Janet; lovely 🙂

  26. Looks like we were on the same page for this challenge. Your photo is amazing! 🙂

  27. That is truly a beautiful spiderweb – like a beautiful, intricate necklace. I almost did a post with spiderwebs for the same theme, but then the bird feathers got chosen 🙂
