20200614ma_0717“Dino-Stick” / Theme: Plant

A little about this photo…

I found this stick lying on the ground. And I was so intrigued by it, I picked it up. Because, well, doesn’t it look like some prehistoric dinosaur? May I present to you, Dino-Stick. (But sadly, I’m afraid this guy might be last one of its kind.)

Photo Challenge #23 / Treetops

20200528ma_0414“Reaching Skyward” / Theme: Treetops

A little about this photo…

I took this photo after a visit to our local lilac garden. While it’s not quite the sky I was hoping for⁠—a nice sunrise, anybody?⁠—I did find myself drawn to those clouds. And, as you can imagine, the fragrance of this place is amazing. All because of those beautiful blossoms reaching skyward.

Photo Challenge #50 / Black and White

20180819ma_4789“Bump, Bump, Bump” / Theme: Black and White

A little about this photo…

This shot was inspired by A.A. Milne. “Here is Edward Bear coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way… if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it!”

Photo Challenge #37 / Nature

20180815ma_4324.jpg“Spider Tree” / Theme: Nature

A little about this photo…

This tree brings up so many questions. I mean, what makes a tree grow like this? Is it some sort of portal to another land? Does anything live under there? Assuming this tree doesn’t already have tenants, don’t you just want to make a fort under there?

Well, it certainly makes for an interesting photo. It makes me wonder if it’s going to start walking at any moment.

Photo Challenge #22 / Trees

“Lilac Garden” / Theme: Trees

A little about this photo…

One of my favourite trees are lilac trees. Every spring, I go to photograph a lilac garden near where I live. This garden has every type of lilac you’ve never heard about. This year, we went a little later than usual, and most of the blossoms had wilted and died. But not all! There were a few late blooming lilac trees.

I went specifically near sunset to take advantage of “pretty light”. However, the clouds covered up the sun for most of the time, except for this brief moment. That’s when I went running to this tree so I could get this shot.

Got it!
