Tuesday Photo Challenge – Light

Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge.  This week’s topic is:  Light (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2016/08/23/tuesday-photo-challenge-light/).

“Go play with light, find some reflections, bright little spots filtering through leaves, or whatever catches your eye, and, most of all, have fun!!!”

I find it sometimes challenging to catch the sparkly light on the water, but I thought this one turned out pretty good.

Macro Moments Challenge: Week 10

Week 10 of Macro Moments from Musin’ with Susan (https://musinwithsusan.com).   (https://musinwithsusan.com/2016/08/24/macro-moments-challenge-week-10/).  Just to remind you (and me), here’s how the challenge works:

  • Choose a favorite macro photo  from the past week or from your archives.
  • Add the photo to your post and a brief description. I would love to know, as I am sure others would, too,  what camera and lens you used and your settings.

This week there is no theme.  So, here you go!


iPhone6, Camera+ app, Macro setting, f/2.2, 1/50 sec exposure, ISO-32, focal length 4mm

Oh, and if you look closely below, you’ll see that those folks are trying to row a log…

Tuesdays of Texture: Week 35

Tuesdays of Texture from Narami (https://narami.wordpress.com/4486-2/).  This week’s challenge page can be found at https://narami.wordpress.com/2016/08/23/tuesdays-of-texture-week-35-of-2016/

I didn’t think about this as having an interesting texture as I was busy drinking it at the time, but looking back, it kind of does!  And it’s very refreshing at the end of a long work day as well…



And now, this…

Some scenes from my run/walk after work (excuse the bright sun – at least it’s starting to cool off here!)







And kitties!



Cee’s Which Way Challenge: August 17, 2016

And today for Cee’s Which Way Challenge! (https://ceenphotography.com/2016/08/17/cees-which-way-photo-challenge-august-17-2016/)

“This all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.”

Every path that goes down…


Must go back up again.  But it was ok – we had lunch to burn off!
