Photo Challenge #42 / Three of a Kind

20190422ma_1041“Pinecones” / Theme: Three of a Kind

A little about this photo…

Found these while at the park. I like the interplay of the shadow of the tree. And all the texture of the pine needles. Come to think of it, the colour scheme is very monochrome, isn’t it?

Photo Challenge #41 / In Good Time

20191011ma_2530“Cuckoo Clock” / Theme: In Good Time

A little about this photo…

Spent a whole day cleaning, organizing, and tidying up a garage. Came across this beautiful cuckoo clock. No longer working properly, but beautiful still the same. Odd thing was, the time on the clock was approximately the time I took this photo. (And no, I did not manipulate the hands!)

Photo Challenge #38 / Authentic

20190518ma_1463“In the Wild” / Theme: Authentic

A little about this photo…

Can you see him? He’s pretty well-camouflaged over there… My nephew’s the one that spotted this little guy when we were hiking. He was a safe distance away from us (across a little waterway). Later we spotted trees that had the telltale teeth marks!

Photo Challenge #37 / Sunshine

20190818ma_1542“Peeping Through the Cornstalks” / Theme: Sunshine

A little about this photo…

Wandering about in a corn maze, I looked up to see this… the sun peeping through.

You can tell this is the edge of the corn maze since you can see the trees on the other side. Fortunately, we had a “map” of sorts to help us through the maze. I’m glad it was day, though. I wouldn’t want to be there at night!

Photo Challenge #36 / Macro

20190813ma_1445“Ready for My Close-up” / Theme: Macro

A little about this photo…

There’s something about flowers that just beg you to get out the camera. “Take my picture!”.  A couple things caught my eye as I was taking this photo. First, there were the almost translucent petals. I love how the light is almost shining through them. And second, I love the little detail you see when doing macro photography. We don’t often pay attention to those tiny details.

Photo Challenge #35 / Hidden

20190822ma_2177“Peeking Through Trees” / Theme: Hidden

A little about this photo…

This is a shot from my recent cross-country train trip which included a route through Northern Ontario (north of Lake Superior). The view was gorgeous! Especially all these pockets of little lakes that we would glimpse through the trees as we zipped on by. I love how this one tree is hiding that tiny island in the background, and that there’s another island off to the right!

Photo Challenge #34 / Legacy

IMG_0291“Blue Skies on the Prairie” / Theme: Legacy

A little about this photo…

This is a grain elevator, an iconic symbol of the Canadian prairies. Not sure if this one is used or not. It still looks pretty good, so I’m assuming it is? I like how the red just pops out from the field of yellow (canola flowers) and that blue sky.

Photo Challenge #33 / The Great Outdoors

IMG_0387“Salt Lake at Sunset” / Theme: The Great Outdoors

A little about this photo…

This photo was taken at Manitou Beach in Saskatchewan. Little Manitou Lake is a salt lake. We didn’t actually go swimming in it on this visit since, when we arrived, because of the winds. We practically were blown away. This photo was taken in the calm after the storm.
