Krista over at WordPress has chosen the topic “inspiration” for this week’s photo challenge. She says, “What is your inspiration? What moves you? What is it that never fails to motivate you, to get you going, or make you happy? It could be the bench in a quiet section of the park where you go to center yourself. Maybe it’s a favorite piece of music or book passage that boosts your enthusiasm. Or, maybe it’s the face of the love of your life, a treasured memento, or the unconditional love you see in the eyes of your pet.” I get inspired by a number of things. Here is what inspires me.
After a rain, I am inspired to take my camera outside to take close up photos that capture the drops of water on the spring blossoms.
I am also inspired to look for the abundance of mushrooms that pop up after a spring rain.

I like finding places that offer serenity and a place to relax.

Because of the beauty that I find in places, I am inspired to explore. Here are some shots of places that I have seen on these explorations.
Hiking through some rough terrain, I discover this lovely view of a beach.
The calm of the sea
Walking the trail gets me to a good viewing area enabling me to capture this shot of Half Dome in Yosemite.

Hiking a trail in Volcanoes National Park on the big island of Hawaii, the shrubbery opens up and I am delighted by the view.
