Colour and Texture

This bleached log on a beach reminds me of a dragon, old and weathered but still a bit dangerous.
A couple of Sundays ago we went over to Sidney Island and hiked around the trails there.
We saw hundreds of deer - they were taking their afternoon naps in the woods and as we approached along the shore, they rose up in waves and retreated further inland. I've never seen anything like it.

In this grassy field there's the foundation of an old brick building. They used to make bricks on the island and ship them to various places. Now, the island is mostly parkland. Isn't this a beautiful place to camp?

Since having a digital camera I look at things a bit differently. I like the big pictures - like this one of the meadow and the ocean, but I also like the small details - the myriad of textures in nature. Rocks, beach, trees, grass - creation has infinite variety. I have hundreds of photos on my computer and I've heard it said that they aren't safe until they're printed. But oh, how to choose from so many!

Meanwhile, I keep clicking away, zooming in and zooming out.

  3. What beautiful photographs...that piece of wood looks like it has stories to tell!

    Have a blessed and wonderful day!

Thank you for your comment. I read and value each one, cherishing the connections we can make although far apart. Usually, I visit your blog in return, although if you ask a question I try to contact you directly.
