Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

Summer Lovin’ is not a hard subject AT ALL! Well, it is hard in that there are so many things to love about summer, especially this one. But here are a few pretty, yet interesting, photos from our Beaver Island Trip. The abstract was a mistake. I was shooting my daughter in the sun reflection in the lake and the camera was totally out of focus. Oops. 😉 But I like it! Summer Lovin’, gosh is there anything better? I just don’t want this summer to end….

In Flight Meal

The seagulls are so fun to watch as the fly erratically through the air biting at the mayflies.

Being In Alignment

What you might be looking for sometimes isn’t what you think you need. Who are you in your true identity?  How do you connect with your soul? And, what your true agenda is here in this life? Do you live for the true agenda of your soul? Hmm. I am listening to Neale Donald Walsch’s, “Living from your Soul.” It is interesting. Living in the expression of love, compassion, patience, etc. the qualities that make you alive. Experience and express every aspect of divinity that flows through us. Give people back to themselves. Succinctly: Good gets good. Ask yourself, “What does this have to do with the agenda of my soul?” or “Is that all there is?”

Friends in High Places

This week has had some spectacular sunsets. We had a few small storm clouds roll through and then clear up. It was really hot and humid, but we have been lucky to get some really nice days in the 70s yesterday and today. Windows open!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

I took this the other night, and it is my choice for the weekly photo challenge! I love the edge that glows along the cloud after the sun goes right behind it. If you look really hard, there is a bird flying in the sky.

Not So Usual Sightings

Here is a group of photos that have a couple of things in common, even though at first sight they probably look rather diverse. Obviously they are all taken by me, but they all contain things that are not seen as often as would be nice! They are also all from the last few days. I hope you enjoy the double rainbow, monarch butterfly (in my garden on my milkweed, yea!) a heart-shaped cloud that is in shadow, and a green heron. If you look you might be surprised at what you see!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

 

Shine on

I chose this photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra because as the sun was setting it fell behind a strip of clouds. I was shooting other views and then turned back around and voila! The sun was back out, peeking through a hole in the clouds and the trees. An extra treat for the sunset fan (like me)!

Soft and Sweet

I am swooning~ soft and sweet and floating like my heart~

Oh Mammatus!

Short and sweet: Last night we had a small storm cell go through. My favorite clouds, the mammatus, were spectacular!!! And we saw and heard some big bullfrogs and were graced by many red winged blackbirds and swallows! Glory Be!
