Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Nature

This week at Lens and Pens by Sally we contemplate on nature.

Check out Sally’s “Nature’s Softer Palette” gallery and meet Photographer David Benjamin Sherry
and join the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge.
What I like about the challenge is the pre-set weekly focus (for those who schedule posts, this is ideal)
and the ongoing relationship Sally develops with me as an iPhoneographer.

The pond this morning on my way to meditation.

Living up in the Santa Cruz Mountains, I’m surrounded by nature.
There is so much nature, it really looks the same day by day. Yet each day
and each moment hold its own spectacular beauty.

About noon today, I looked up and got this view of our redwood circle.

It is special when nature comes into our cabin. Yesterday my love brought home these two beauties.



Today, he brought this home and was delighted to see that it was the color of the shirt I wore today. How serendipitous!
Flowers from my love, last month. Taken with the shadows of today.

  1. Wonderful wonderful blog. I have barely scratched the surface yet, but you have some amazing photo’s from what I have seen, coupled with some amazing tips.

    1. Gosh Phil, I’m blusing with surprise. I am happy to hear that you like it. Thank you so much for your feedback and stopping by.

  2. Beautiful photos. We too live surrounded by nature. Ours is primarily hardwood forest. You have inspired me to take some more creative photos when I’m there. I especially love the photo of your redwood circle. Inspiring!

    1. First shot is my favorite too. We have unusual bird pattern this year. Hundreds of doves in our old old juniper tree by this pond. I hope to get a shot before they all leave.Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment.

  4. Oh, you have a cabin in Santa Cruz mountains. Northern California is the place that stole my heart years ago, and has kept it nestled in its splendor. Was there in April, and visited Yosemite for the first time. I was dazed with emotion. You see such beauty and joy every day that I am so happy for you. What a lovely environment to be and evolve. Nature teaches us every day. Your images are marvelous. The last one keeps me returning. It speaks volumes for nature’s various stages that keep our attention. Happy Photo Challenge.

  5. As I use my iPhone more for photographs, I am amazed both by the quality and the options that the apps provide.
