Ready for Summer!



Ahhhh the sun.  If it were a food, I would eat it everyday.  Winter time always brings out the blues for me.  And in the summer, I prefer never to be home.  I feel happiest when I am lost in the trees, climbing rocks and dangling my feet over the edge of things.  This is Great Falls National Park.  This past weekend was get in “free” so my brother and his significant other suggested we go for a hike.  Oh I was sooooo game!  It was my first of the season and we had a blast.  It made me want to play the lottery, so one day I could forgo work and spend my days outside, snapping away at all the things that caught my eye.

These are just snapshots, no real planning or set up.  When I hike with others, I get into point and shoot mode, because I always feel so bad lagging behind, trying to take 10 different shots of the same thing.  I think next weekend, I will venture out by myself so I can take my time.

Enjoy the sun folks!  While it lasts 🙂





Off Prompt


It started snowing today.  And I am not a huge fan of food photography unless a restaurant stages the meal, so I am going off prompt today and sending you a shot from my favorite park.


Natural Treasure



Don’t look now, I’m going to cheat.

I know, it’s day 7 and the point of a 365 project is to shoot a photo a day for 365 days. Honestly, I was going to take a picture of an apple, but this photo, I think, best represents this prompt and I really want to share it with you.  To ease my conscience, I can say that I did do some editing on this photo today.

I took this photo this past August, on a week long trip with my mother.  It was my first time ever out west and I can’t wait to return!  You couldn’t put into words the wonders out there, and if you have never been out there to see the sights, you are missing out!  Me, I had never really left the east coast and here I was, right smack in the middle of these magnificent mountains and vast plains…it was truly beautiful.  We visited Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, and the Grand Tetons.  We spent 7 days on a bus traveling from state to state and I was severely motion sick the entire week.  Even that didn’t stop me.  So give me an F today if you must, but this photo is one of the best treasures I could ever share with you.  It means the world to me because I was able to experience it with my Mom.  It was the first trip we had ever taken together and probably one of the most memorable ones I will ever have in my entire life.

Sorry but not sorry 😉
