Sunflowers In The Winter Sun

In this photo, the winter sun is starting to set in the West. With heads bowed, the sunflowers are saying good-bye to the retreating day of sun. I love the combination of the shadows drawn out in curves on the snow and the tree branches framing the photograph. Thanks for liking, commenting, sharing and purchasing.

Beam of Light

Beam Of Light

In this photograph, the winter sunlight blazons through the sky and passes through the sunflowers as if touching and kissing them good-bye before the sun sets. I love this black and white photo because it looks like it was painted in an artistic fashion and yet it is a photograph.

All In A Row

I took this photo because I was fascinated that vibrant tall-standing sunflower plants were still up in the winter snow and sun. I love the way the snow clings to the sunflowers and the lines of shadows that the sun casts on the snow.

Curvature

What can I say? I love the curvature of the earth. It is fascinating the way you can see it from so high up. Yes! The Earth is round. Here live the humans who have built a concrete jungle. Amidst the greenery, there is water but on this river, live so many people working and travelling up and down its path. There is a history and present story to be told in this photo.

It is a view of Paris and the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower.

Roots of Strength

Roots Of Strength

I took this photo because I loved the way the tree has insisted to grow despite being pushed by the forces of nature. It’s exposed roots show how it can compensate to continue to grow and sustain nutrients from the ground. To me, the roots look like arms reaching into the Earth.

Sculpted Antlers

Sculpted Antlers

Here is a beautiful view of sculpted antlers that nature has made. It is just perfectly made.

Wikipedia indicates: “Antlers are extensions of an animal’s skull found in members of the deer family. Antlers are true bone and are a single structure. They are generally found only on males, with the exception of the reindeer/caribou. Antlers are shed and regrown each year and function primarily as objects of sexual attraction and as weapons in fights between males for control of harems.”

To The Edge

According to Wikipedia, “Grand Canyon National Park, in Arizona, is home to much of the immense Grand Canyon, with its layered bands of red rock revealing millions of years of geological history. Viewpoints include Mather Point, Yavapai Observation Station and architect Mary Colter’s Lookout Studio and her Desert View Watchtower. Lipan Point, with wide views of the canyon and Colorado River, is a popular, especially at sunrise and sunset.”

I love dolphins and whales. This is a underwater picture of a dolphin. According to Wikipedia, “Dolphin is a common name of aquatic mammals within the infraorder Cetacea. The term dolphin usually refers to the extant families Delphinidae, Platanistidae, Iniidae, and Pontoporiidae, and the extinct Lipotidae. There are 40 extant species named as dolphins.”

Elk Calf

Elk babies are called calves and weigh around 31 to 35 lbs. (14 to 16 kg) when they are born. After just 20 minutes, a calf can stand on its own.

According to Wikipedia, “The elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) is one of the largest species within the deer family, Cervidae, and one of the largest terrestrial mammals in North America and Northeast Asia.”
