Weekly Photo Challenge: Admiration

An almost perfect double rainbow!  It doesn’t happen very often around here…but when it does, I find myself in awe and admiration of our Creator!

I was in my car, and it was quite difficult, but I tried my best to get a good photo of it while I was stopped at the stoplight. Unfortunately, the light turned green, and I had to go before the people behind me got mad.

I guess they didn’t see it, or else they wouldn’t have cared that I wasn’t moving!

Join in the fun, and take the challenge….what or who are you in admiration of?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle

In response to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge .

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this moment, this child, as he gathered all his cars together for a little circle time!

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Enveloped

This little guy loves to be enveloped in his favorite blanket. If he’s not enveloped in it, it’s certainly not far behind…a little boy and a his blanket, a pretty happy place indeed.

Snug as a bug, he’s perfectly content in his happy place!

This is my contribution for this week’s photo challenge, enveloped. You might want to take a look at what other people have contributed by going here, or better yet, join in the fun and share a photo of your own interpretation of the challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature

We were sitting in the airplane waiting for take-off when this huge wall of a sand/dirt cloud rolled up.  The forces of nature were seriously at work that day in a way that I have never seen before!

I’m told that this particular “force of nature” is called an haboob:

Definition: A haboob (Arabic: هَبوب‎ habūb “blasting/drafting”) is a type of intense dust storm carried on an atmospheric gravity current. Haboobs occur regularly in arid regions throughout the world.

It took a little while for the dust to settle, and for the plane to take off…but in the mean time, I enjoyed watching this spectacular sight, especially from where I was sitting, safe inside the great big plane!

Oh the forces of nature…they are found everywhere you look, some are subtle and some, like this haboob, come roaring in!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird

I’m not really much of an “early bird” when it comes to getting up in the morning.  I’ve left those days behind…but apparently the critter that came to visit my yard is quite the “early bird“, and it looks like they might have gotten a few worms for breakfast too! 😦

Hopefully, you have better things than a torn up lawn to greet you in your early morning hours of the day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur

This is what my life without coffee would look like…just a blur!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

Orange…is not a color I am typically drawn to.

However, it is beautiful, and bright and the world would be quite boring without it!
