A Photo a Week Challenge: Crossed Lines

crossed_lines_nmp

The art of photography is the study of lines and curves. We are always looking at how lines and curves affect our image. At how converging lines interact with our main subject or subjects. We can become obsessed with the rule of thirds and where those lines line up (hehehe). So for this week, I want you to find lines that cross. My photo was taken on the Big Island of Hawaii at a black sand beach were we stopped to watch sea turtles and the surf. Walking down to the sandy part of the beach, I found this beautiful spot where the tall, almost-vertical palm tree trunks crossed the horizon and a bridge.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF CROSSING OR CROSSED LINES.

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.

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.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Recreation

My husband has recently taken up fly fishing. He’s always loved regular casting fishing, but he has always wanted to try fly fishing. Last weekend, we headed up to the High Unita Mountains and the Upper Provo River for him to get in some practice and try out some new flies a friend had made for him. This amazing world we live in and on has so many places for fun recreation and play. This week, get your fun on and share what you enjoy doing to relax or get the adrenaline pumping.
