Weekly Photo Challenge: Atop

Visiting Schilthorn in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. When we reached the top of the mountain, there were too many clouds to see the valley, but we got a good view on the tram ride up and down.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Happiness Is…

Our daughter is getting married a week from today (PSA: there will be no challenge next Thursday). They asked me to take their engagement pictures (and no, I am not shooting the wedding). The wedding will be in one of the Salt Lake Valley canyons, so we went there to take the photos. We are so happy for them. They are perfect for each other. They make each other happy, as you can see from these pictures. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for them. (P.S. Sorry about the photo dump. We’re a little proud of our children.)

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY OR THAT SHOW HAPPINESS.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rare

Though sighting lizards in the Escalante/Horse Canyon area of Utah is not rare, it is rare to have one sit still long enough for you to grab a good shot of them unless you are willing to stay in one place for a long time. We didn’t have that luxury, so we’re very happy this guy didn’t find us too scary to pose.
