I have waited for days for the rain to let up for a bit so I could participate in this week’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge from the website LetsBeWild.com. As Friday wound down, the clouds parted and the skies partially cleared. The rain has moved off to the east. Once I arrived home I grabbed my camera to head outside to take some photos. The topic of this week’s challenge is: Now! The challenge requires photos taken outside, and taken this week…
When we had our last rains, I had noticed that our little pile of rotting wood had some pretty cool looking fungus growing on it, and there were some incredible patterns and textures in the wood. I also spied the unusual seed pods on our liquid amber tree, which when you look closely are a work of art! I decided that these two areas would be the focus of this week’s photo challenge entries. Let’s start with those seed pods first!
The spiky seed pods are a reminder of the last growing season, and what could be a better contrast of old and new than a seed pod next to a bud that will become this season’s leaves?
Let’s look at this a bit closer shall we?
The spikes remind me of dancers doing the Cancan!
Moving over to the wood pile, check out the amazing fungus!
The fungus in this photo reminds me of the skirts of dancers! What do you think?
Now how about the textures that one can find in wood?
Check out the rings on this piece of wood!
Compare this to a newly cut piece of wood. This photo shows the remains of my blue tree that sadly died! It was 5 years old as you can see from the rings.
