Krista, over at WordPress has chosen “Reward” as this week’s challenge topic! She says, “Reward is filthy with possibility: it could be your third grader’s beaming smile after reading her first chapter book, a steaming mug of chicken soup after a long run in the cold, a photo of your brand-new baby — your reward for patience during nine months of construction, or your extended family gathered around the dinner table.” Here are my rewards:

A calving glacier splashes into the water after a long wait…

The splash!

A hike takes me to a point where I can view the awesome Yosemite Valley…

There is nothing better than being rewarded at the end of the day with a glorious sunset!

This week the topic for the WordPress Photo Challenge is the rule of thirds. Here is what Jen H. has to say: “The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image. If you focus closely on your subject and use a wide aperture, your photograph’s background will also be beautifully blurred in that blank space. The blurred area behind your focal point is referred to as bokeh, and when executed well, it adds depth and artistry to an otherwise simplistic photograph.” Here is my go at The Rule of Thirds!
