Matte Finish

I’m reposting for this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge. I guess I was ahead of my time, but this photo of shadows fits the theme perfectly.

Ice Bauble

Cee’s Weekly Photo Challenge is Dark and Light. I took this photo on Decembers last day at sunrise. The Tuscarawas River was running high and swift. This ice bauble formed as water lapped upon the swamped grass bank. Clear waters are transparent to the underlying bank while the bauble captures morning’s first rays.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.  Matthew 7:23-25 NIV

The Thrill of the Capture

Looking back over a year of photos is the thrill of the capture and the agony of delete. Each week, photos are culled, choices made and posted. Thinning the selection even more poses quite a challenge. I thought this year I’d chose an even 2 dozen. This year I decided to enter 3 photo exhibitions and stretch myself and my skill. Four ribbons graced my photos so my eye and craft is improving. But for these I put some of the  technical aside and held on to some of my own emotion attachments and just chose my favorites.

Enjoy! Happy New Year! Wondering what we’ll be capturing together in a new year.

Banded Argiope

My grandson loves these big web weaving spiders. Much to his fathers dismay. Often found in the September, they commonly are lumped together with their cousins as garden spiders. Usually shy, this one stayed on web for a pose, content to finish its evening meal. The pic has been sent to my grandson…I’m waiting to hear his delight…its bigger than the one he’s been raising outside his window all summer!
