A Photo a Week Challenge: Green

green18_nmp

I might make this an annual challenge. St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, and I will of course be wearing green. And eating corned beef and cabbage. I am Irish on both sides, and I love green. I don’t remember the name of this waterfall, but it was one of my favorites on Kauai. And look at all of that green!

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A NEW PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING THE COLOR GREEN.

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.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Hidden Treasures

On Maui, we rented a car and drove the road to Hana. Now, the town of Hana isn’t much, once you get there, but getting there is a bit of a crazy ride. Windy, narrow, washed-out in places, it was a harrowing journey, but the scenery along the way was incredible. No wonder people do it, although we decided that the one time was enough for us.

This beautiful pool and water fall were down a small trail near a bridge on the road to Hana. We stopped at several of these, and each one was just a beautiful. But to see this, you have to be willing to get out of your car and walk about a quarter mile down a damp path crowded with roots and wet branches hitting you in the face. It was worth it.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF PLACES OR THINGS YOU HAD TO SEEK FOR.

Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

I live at the foot of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. The peaks are majestic and awe-inspiring, and not a little intimidating for people who aren’t used to being surrounded by very tall mountains.

The first picture (taken this week) is from a freeway overpass looking the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. The second picture (taken June 2016) is of Lauterbrunnen Valley in Switzerland.
