Elemental ~ WP Photo Challenge

After the storm, the sunset came. It was bright and dark all at the same time. The sky, the air, looked as if it was on fire.

For this week’s challenge, explore the classical elements of earth, air, water, and fire. How do you capture something invisible like air, or the movement of water? Or, more personally, is there a place you go to feel connected to the earth? Take a moment to explore these elements, in or out of balance, together or individually, as you pick up your camera this week.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Photography is a primarily visual medium, but we can experience it with more than one sense. This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame.

History in the Rocks (WP Photo Challenge: Texture)

When I saw this weeks theme I knew that I had to share some photos from my favourite Ontario Park.  These are fossils of a coral reef dating back to over 350 million years.

Every year I’m intrigued by the textures of the fossils on the rocks. It amazes me that after years centuries of weather, lake, and people these are still here for us to see and touch.

Bridges ~ WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

I often wonder why this bridge was built? What is it connecting?

But then I think of how wonderful it is to find a little red bridge under a beautiful, old, green willow tree and I smile. That is reason enough.

 

 

 

Is it the bridge that connects Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada to Niagara Falls, New York, USA? An invisible line divides the two cities into separate counties. It’s the world renowned view, the thrill of all that water, that connects the two cities.

 

 

One of my favourite views includes this bridge. It connects the two sides of a steam. What is symbolizes is our place to connect with nature.
