Color Me A Rainbow - Indigo

Oh, how I love Indigo.  And, in this case the Color Me A Rainbow group, just concluded a Challenge resulting in a lovely collection of images all in a Indigo hue.  My image, Deep Sense , was selected as a Top Ten Finalist.  The image is on the bottom row, left corner.  I just love all the colors of blue.

Garden Tripod 34

Garden Tripod Issue 34

I was so pleased to learn today that my image, End of Time, appears in the newest issue of Garden Tripod 34, at RedBubble.

I really love the quality of the images and each monthly presentation, however I am less than enthusiastic with the inclusion of starring images shown on commercial products such as mugs, trousers, laptop covers, along with the starring beautiful images themselves [rugs and duvets - not shown but available].  Non-the-less, I am still happy to be included in another issue of this lovely magazine - no pillows included for me.

Fab Flower

My image, Rainbow, was selected as a new feature in "Fabulous Flowers", yesterday.
I have mentioned the circumstances of photographing this lovely flower, so I am really happy that it is being showcased by this group.  Nice reward for an off chance happening.

Things Are Quiet

Things are quiet here - the month is finally winding down with really uncomfortable heat and humidity here - an official Heat Wave, no less.  I'll be glad for the cooling down with the coming month of September, the changing leaves, and the bright skies and cloud formations  that are great to look forward to.

This image of a hibiscus, was taken in a random place - outside the door of the local Pizza shop.  Certainly a surprise, but never the less, pleasant to photograph with it's lovely color scheme.

Well, since I love the ever-changing colors of Hydrangeas, it was very rewarding to be selected as a finalist in Enchanted Flower's - Avatar/Hydrangeas Challenge. My image, Cascade, can be seen in the top row center. The variety of colors and blossoms are really so pretty - happy to be included.

A Great Start

 Congratulations – 1st Aug., 2015, my first  feature for the month of August!  The month's are flying by.  The images in this collection are really lovely, so I was really flattered to be included.  My image, Cascade, is also entered in a Challenge sponsored by Enchanted Flowers, so it will be interesting to see how well it does too.

LOOK DOWN! The world Beneath Our Feet

My image, Moody Bleu, was selected as a finalist in a challenge presented by a new group for me, Look Down. I think it is fun to see things from a different perspective now and then, so I am glad I entered this challenge.  Really nice images in the group, I think. Moody Bleu is the top row left image of a blue child's toy umbrella.
