for Life in Colour: pink and Squares: bright

“Natural light” is this week’s theme, one that’s right up my camera lens. I’m enthralled by light. As a morning person who feels that if I didn’t get walking before sunrise I’m running late, I have lots of sunrise photos…so I’m going to avoid those. Those of you who follow me have seen lots of them in various posts. Let’s go with something different, something smaller than grand vistas, which have already been done beautifully by our hostesses.

I’ve shared this photo before, but it’s one of my favorites for showcasing natural light.

Since I held off on sunrises, let’s grab a Wyoming sunset to close.

I didn’t have to look far for today’s Lens-Artists challenge, although I did have to virtually beam my self back to a summer in Wyoming, something I always enjoy. Here are my the “S” images for this week and I hope each of you is having a Super Saturday. 😉 Silly me.

So sleepy…

Soft and silent…

Stupendous sunset…

For One Word Sunday: skyline and SquareUp: sUPerb

Patti’s set us a challenge today, that of sharing photos the convey emotion. I don’t take lots of photos of people, but humans aren’t the only ones who express emotions. What emotions do you see?

Can’t resist a reprise of my W.C. Fields cactus. 🙂

for Six Word Saturday l.9.21

Day 9 of the travel photo challenge Su of Zimmerbitch asked me to participate in, no explanation needed for the photo. I’m going with the retro look today for this Yellowstone shot. Today I’m nominating Dan of NoFacilities. Dan, if you’d like to participate, please pingback or link to my post or blog. And have fun.

This challenge is a bit like “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego”, although my repertoire of locations is much more limited! This is Day 7 of posting ten travel photos without explanation and then nominating someone else to do the same. (I was nominated by Su from Zimmerbitch.) Today I nominate Aletta of nowathome, coming to you all the way from South Africa. If you participate, please link back to this post. Now let’s travel!

Su from Zimmerbitch nominated me to participate in this challenge. One photo, no explanation needed. One nomination: Tish from Writer on the Edge. “Requirements”: Post one travel photo each day for ten days, no explanation needed. Or as many days as you feel like. If you participate, pingback to my post. Nominate others if desired; repeat as desired. Enjoy.

Wherever the neighborhood where we currently live, my neighborhood of heart is here in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. I was fortunate enough to visit for three weeks this summer.

The neighborhood.
