Seasons

Today’s Word Press photo challenge is Seasons. We can use photography to illustrate a weather season, season in our life, or however we choose to show a season. Since our winter was relatively mild, and currently, the temperatures are downright spring-like, I’ve chosen to show the winter season through the dazzling sunsets. Since returning west from Boston, I am once again able to enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets on my commute to and from work, without worrying about missing brake lights ahead of me. It’s been a welcome change. While the Boston area also has stunning sunrises and sunsets, I have chosen to show you some from my home in Eastern Oregon. Winter is the time when we have more clouds, making the morning and evening even more beautiful.

The latter image was made from my front yard. We have an amazing view, particularly in the evenings. The two images were made less than 30 minutes apart, approximately 22 miles north/south.

Friday Flowers

It seems like every time we wander around our neighborhood, there are new flowers to admire and photograph.

Not a flower, but still cool.

Do you have a favorite? I like them all for different reasons. I suppose if I had a favorite, there would only be one photo here, but I’d love to hear what you think.
