When I think of change in my world of photography I think of the change of the seasons. So today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite “series” or trio from my vast collection of photos of nature. These are especially sentimental to me because it is of a dogwood in our front yard that meant a lot to my late mother-in-law. I hope you enjoy!

For the photo challenge Lost In The Details I wanted to show some photos that I haven’t shared before while featuring the details of some of my favorite subjects. Here are a few for you to enjoy!
Nature is amazing. Some of the scenery I see along the way shows me that there is no end to the creativity of nature. So the word this Tuesday is Tree.
Being as I travel through a lot of rural areas and have been blessed to travel to the Caribbean I had a few tree photos stashed in my library.
This first photo is from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Along the Princess Walk there are trees that are completely twisted!
This second photo is from Gentry, Arkansas. There is little lake there hidden in the woods where the autumn sun made the colors just gorgeous!
This tree was in a shopping center in Oregon in the fall. The colors were so strong that I had to play with the photo a bit to give it a different look. I like the effect that I chose for it.
So, now you know what is next! Show me your trees!!!
Home is where your heart is.
Home has several different meanings for me. It is the physical place that I share with my husband and all our four-legged children as well as our two-legged children. My heart is always with my husband so in that sense the arms of my husband are my home.
But to share in the challenge this week of home I thought I would share some of my favorite photos of home.

Red is my favorite color. Mix it with others and it makes the colors pop. So here is my favorite fall red leaves photo! Enjoy!

Last year I did a post A Nut No Matter How You Say It with the acorns of the season. They are so very interesting to me – almost like snowflakes there are no two alike. They are falling all over our house and deck right now so I have a lot of photographic subjects at hand. Hope you enjoy these!
Fresh from the camera this afternoon, I found these gorgeous colors hanging around the railroad tracks near home. I just love them!
Cee’s challenge this week is so very appropriate! With autumn here and Halloween today there seems to be a lot of orange out there to share!
A straight path never leads anywhere except to the objective.
This is a photo that I took yesterday at the Pea Ridge National Battlefield. Hope you like it!

It’s almost fall. The weather today was rainy & overcast. The temperature was well below the sun-bathing minimum for me. So it’s time for coffee & Bailey’s caramel now. I’m missing my Tori (who we had to put to sleep on 8/3/12) so here’s my coffee cup with her photo, too. Have some coffee & Bailey’s, too!

To journey is to travel.This can be a physical travel as one might travel the US or the world. Or it can be a journey of life or spirit. I’ve chosen to go with photos of my travels. Here are just a few from my travels over the last several years that remind me of some of the places I have been.
This photo was taken in San Diego harbor – mind you, this photo is in color, not sepia – during the fires of 2008. I was there and just speechless about the whole situation. People were fleeing the fires, the city was on its way to being overtaken with the fires, and the emotions were ones that I cannot describe.
On a lighter, happier note – this photo is from Beavers Bend, OK. It is the place where we go every year for my husband’s family reunion. This photo was of an early fall morning when the river still had that mist hanging over it and the fall leaves were beautiful!
Ahhhh, Alaska! The first memories this brings back is the joy and relaxation of my honeymoon with my hubby! The scenery was breathtaking and the serenity just – well, serene!
Bridges – the old-fashioned kind that are big and have that overhead piece – used to scare me as a youngster. Now they intrigue me. I don’t often get photos of them because I am usually driving.
Hope you enjoy today’s photo!

My brain is so very tired from the paying job that I have that it was hard for me to decide what to share with you today. So I found two photos that I like. Simple.

We had a good amount of rain this last week and that reminded me of picture of a waterfall. Enjoy!!
In our large front lawn there stands a dogwood, a favorite of my late mother-in-law (whom I did not have the blessing of knowing her except thru her children and grandchildren). Last year I happened to capture it over the 3 notable seasons: Spring, Fall and Winter. Enjoy!!
