Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

1. SOMETHING TINY...tried to grow carrots - this is about how big they got!

2. BEDROOM...my glorious view from my bedroom this morning.

3. OFF IN THE DISTANCE...crows lined up on the railroad tracks with more than a hundred off in the distance in the trees at dusk.

4. HIGH KEY...experimented with some long exposures at the beach...didn't quite work out as planned, but still managed to get some high key captures.

5. STRIPES...telephone wires aglow with a gorgeous sunset - the light was fleeting, but SO beautiful.

Wonderful captures. Your tiny is perfect and of course you bedroom/window view is breathe taking. I love the feel of the off in the distance especially with all of those birds! The high key is great. I had some trouble deciding what to use for this too! The stripe capture is definitely creative! I love how you captured it. Even the clouds are striped!

allison said...

Brooke said...

The golden light reflecting off the power lines as your "stripes" is magnificent. Loved it!

I really like your off in the distance, especially the colors.

Dorian Susan said...

Truly fabulous shots...I like them all. I'm drawn to the crows and to those incredible stripes.

Jenn said...

Great job! Love the stripes shot! So creative!

Joanne said...

Amazing shots...every one. Especially the high key. Well done. I did that the first year I tried carrots. Don't forget to thin them out. They like lots of room in between each plant and then they'll get nice and big. =)

Joanne said...

Almost forgot... the coloring you used for your "in the distance" shot just drew me in. Love it.

Tara said...

I thought the carrot would be my fav but as I scrolled down- it became harder and harder for me to choose one. They are all perfect!
