A Photo a Week Challenge: Your Weather Today

weather_today_nmp

Sorry about missing last week, but there are times when you just have to take a week off. This week is all about the weather where you live. In Utah, we’ve had a crazy bit of weather for the last month. January and most of February were horrible if you like to ski or own a ski resort. Then on Sunday night, a massive snow storm moved in. We shoveled the driveway three times in 24 hours. Once the storms move out, we got beautiful blue skies. And the snow-capped mountains against the blue sky is stunning.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A NEW PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF YOUR LOCAL WEATHER.

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.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Clouds

Yesterday and this morning, while other places in the country were able to get good shots of the super blue moon and lunar eclipse, here in the Salt Lake Valley, we had clouds. Beautiful clouds, but still clouds that made it hard to impossible to get good photos of the moon. (We’ll just have to wait until 2037.) But it’s okay. I love photographing clouds.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF CLOUDS.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Blue Skies

blueskies_nmp

In September, I was driving past this field and the combination of the small sunflowers against the blue sky made me really glad I had my camera with me. I know I’ve said this a few times in recent posts, but we really have had the most amazing fall. Beautiful leaves for months, clear skies, light rain when needed, and no snow to turn us suddenly to winter. The crispness of the cooling weather also helps create beautiful skies. Summer skies can be washed-out by the sun; winter skies can be days on end blocked by clouds, but fall and spring provide a wonderful time to capture the perfect blue sky.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF BLUE SKIES.

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.
