First – a huge thank you for being honored once again by you, the audience, for yet another Audience Choice Award on the Let’s Be Wild photo challenge! This week’s challenge is Green. I have already done a lot of green lately, but thankfully, I am able to share with you additional shots of the lovely shade of green!

Let’s start with one of my favorite shots that features the color green. I was lucky to get a call from my neighbor and friend Ethel to come over to check out the bugs on her garage wall! Check out this amazing Katydid!

Pretty, isn’t she?

Let’s take a walk through green, shall we? Ferns abound at this time of year, and they are just truly lovely to see!

I was amazed at the symmetry of the two separate sprouting fronds in the above photo! There are some big ones too! Here is a shot of fern fiddles with the lovely greens of their leaves behind them.

Walking around I have found some everyday plants in the wild. Check out the wild spinach and strawberries!

Then there is the woolly mullein that is all over the place here. The miners used this for TP during the gold rush!

My garden has one of my favorite vegetables: Broccoli! And I was lucky enough to catch a visitor when I took this shot!

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Geometry. Geometry is all about shapes, size and relative position. It is about areas, volume, points lines and planes. And it surrounds us everywhere! Not only in nature, but in the way we shape the world around us. So this is my entry to this week’s challenge. These photos are where I find geometry!

Geometry in a natural arch

Lines…lines…and more lines…


Lines, shapes, designs – Geometry!

Let’s close this post off with the ripples flowing out in circles from a lava flow. Nature captures geometry in time!

This week’s photo challenge is on “Big.” The challenge is this: “BIG. It’s larger than life, it’s unexpected, it’s the protagonist in a scene. It’s big. It often helps to have some normal object as part of the scene so people can understand the scale…” So, here is what is big to me.

Big volcano little people

See the people at the bottom right?

When I read what this week’s photo challenge is, near and far, asking for a photo that draws you into it, I thought of several photos.

The first one was taken after a snow storm blew through our area. I was heading back home…

And, the road takes me…

Near and far….

Summer time in 2008 there were numerous fires in the area that lends to the smokiness in this photo taken at Stumpy Meadows lake.
