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

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!

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!
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.

Being Snug as a Bug in a Rug Whilst Inside on a Cold Day
Here are a number of garden photos taken this past spring and summer. They never made their way into posts, because all of them were taken with my elderly iPhone, and they all appear rather “flat.” I wasn’t able to capture either the dimensionality or the pixelation in a way that gave each photo justice. But I remain fond of the photos, both for what they show, and for the sheer riotous color of high summer. I hope you enjoy viewing them during the dead of winter. (Click to enlarge each photo.)
