Ambience in Nature

I truly love nature. So when I saw the Daily Post Photo Challenge of Ambience I knew I wanted to go with the nature application of the theme. Enjoy!

Hot Springs, AR – the hot springs bring a special feel to the town. You can walk around and find the hot water steaming in many different places. With the sun it makes the steam a beauty.

Beavers Bend State Park in Broken Bow, OK – with the stillness of the river which runs through the park the rocks with their varied colors made a perfect reflection.

Multnomah Falls, OR – The green beauty of the area around the falls paired with the spectacular waterfall makes it a quiet step into nature. There are so many areas around the Falls to explore and immerse yourself into nature.

Beavers Bend State Park in Broken Bow, OK – Even in the fall the river and all of the natural landscape make this park a relaxing experience. My husband (you can see him in the middle of the photo) enjoys fishing and I immerse myself in all that nature has to show me. It’s a wonderful way to take some zen time…

Rule of Thirds Using Nature

Wikipedia defines rule of thirds as:

an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.

So as part of the WordPress Daily Challenge of Rule of Thirds here are two photos, nature oriented, for the challenge:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

This week the photo challenge from WordPress is Beyond.While walking thru the area around Multnomah Falls and Wakheena Falls in Oregon I found many little waterfalls hidden beyond the next corner in the path. Here is one as I approached it – you can see it just beyond all of the foliage. And the second is the waterfall as I came to face it. Enjoy!
