Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge #109: Under the Sun

Amy is inviting us to share this week Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge: Under the Sun. She is inspired by the book “Under the Tuscan Sun”, the book rose to number one on the New York Times Best Seller list, and stayed on the list for two years.

I took this photo on a cloudy day when there was a breach in the clouds where the sun was shining …

And this one in my garden.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 106: Autumn

For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, Patti invites us to share the images about Autumn.

Leaf peeping is an informal term in the United States for the activity in which people travel to view and photograph the fall foliage in areas where leaves change colours in autumn.

I was lucky to take this photo in Switzerland that can capture the different colours that leaves get in the fall.

For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, Tina choose:” Spring”, she told that Spring is a season from hope and renewal, dramatic skies, time of rebirth, etc…

Welcome to Spring and all the newness this season brings. Its rain, daffodils, sunshine and thunder. Its warmth, colour and a breath of fresh air, little buds and birds chirping. All life crawls out of hibernation and our hearths open.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #102: A Quiet Moment

This week, Patti invites us to capture “A Quiet Moment.”

Learn to love the moments between destinations, the quiet moments with yourself, the slow moment  one life seems to be waiting to give you next instructions; trust that you are preparing for the next stages of your life, and be ready when the next door is open, and it’s time to walk inside. (Mark Anthony)

The dog looks mesmerized by the bone and the camera has captured this quiet moment …

“Sometimes in life, we are caught in a zone,

when loved ones feel like strangers and

strangers feel like own; When the road

ahead looks frightening but we have to

walk alone, That’s the right time to collect

ourselves and walk, Because only the tough

get going when the going gets tough…”
