Spring Has Sprung

Indeed, and all of a sudden, it seems. Though that frequently seems to be the nature of spring.

Nature’s Etchings Set in Stone

I tend to think of Dale and K’lee’s Cosmic Photo Challenge as lasting from Monday through Sunday, even though those are not the technical rules. So here is a Sunday submission for last Monday’s Challenge: Set in Stone. You can click on each image to enlarge. I find the texture of the fourth photo to be astoundingly beautiful!

Nature as Art in Urban Life

I have taken a slightly different take on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Nature As Art. I am a committed city dweller, and as such, I often find nature interposed with the everyday objects and activities of urban life. Because of that, I have chosen photos in which nature and beauty are set within the life of the city, becoming its own form of art. Enjoy!

Nature as Art

I did not set out to get the purplish tones to the fine ends of the branches. They appeared when I adjusted the illumination in editing. I very much liked the effect, so I left it in the photo.
