Catch the Sun- Focus on Life Week 30


Roiling water by the ford- you want us to drive through that???
The swimming hole after the storm.
Oh my, I've missed a few weeks- though Sally's prompts always influence what I'm paying attention to on any given week! I've been moving halfway across the country (again) and have landed in upstate New York (again). Anyway, this week I've been humming  'I'll Follow the Sun' for days on end. Sometimes I feel like that's what I'm doing. I was staying in a cabin in a state park and, because I am addicted to white noise, was quite surprised when I woke in the morning to see that there had been a deluge of some kind. One bridge was covered with water and pieces of the other had been taken out and floated down the stream. Though I was looking to get some nice photos of sun glinting off of all of the water action, I just mostly took a lot of photos of whatever I saw- lovely scenery! To see what everyone else has been up to, start at Sally's Blog!

Well I was in alberta... Yes I saw the sun but it wasn't shinning on anything I wanted to photograph so I have a lot of non sunshine pictures this week too!

Wow what amazing photos! Those indian pipe flowers are very interesting, and all that water...very frightening yet amazing.

Those are some really good shots and spots of sunlight. We are just happy to have some spots of rain here.

Gosh, what spectacular shots of the water - and the Indian Pipe flower is beautiful and very unusual, I've never seen a flower like it before.

Great photos! Such energy! Lovely picture of the Indian Pipe, which is a parasitic plant the lives on fungus (hey I'm a librarian, I look things up!)and does not need light to grow!

My heavens - that is some serious water!

What amazing photos - I can almost hear the water. And I just LOVE the last spot of sunlight pic. Hope your move is going well!
