Sunday Stills – Happy Place – 10.18.20

Frank & I taking a selfie with Trout Lake as our backdrop.

My happy place is being outside in nature with my hubby, Frank! I’m also happy when I’m with my kids and grandkids but haven’t seen 2 of my 3 kids and none of my grandkids since January of this year due to the pandemic. I get to Facetime with them, but that is it. So for this challenge, I will stick to what I do when I can’t be with them physically.

SQUARES – Kinda Holey

This large piece of driftwood was found on the beach a couple of weeks ago. I have to wonder what woodpecker pecked all these holes. It was too large to move so I straddled it to get a shot. I’m sure this old tree could tell some stories!

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Owls

Barred Owl perched in a tree at Reddie Point Park in Jacksonville, Florida.

Owls are nocturnal meaning they are mostly active at night. There are two species that are truly diurnal (meaning they are active both day and night). They are the Northern Hawk Owl and the Northern Pygmy Owl.

SQUARES – The Beach Kind of Life

This was someone else’s setup as we trucked down the beach with our own beach cart packed with lunch, chairs, umbrellas and our packs that carry our camera & stuff. I actually got in the water on October 1st! What? Yep…sure did! It was just a little chillier than the last time I had gotten in. Didn’t stay in there long!

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Seagulls

Ring-billed Gull flying overhead.

I think everyone has seen a seagull at some point in their lives. They are not just a coastal species, they are inland as well. Generally, they don’t venture out to sea, except the kittiwakes. They are closely related to the terns and distantly related to auks, skimmers and other waders. They range is size of 11 1/2″ to 30″ and all basically have the same shape.

Water Water Everywhere – Black Skimmer

On this day, Black Skimmers were going up and down the shoreline scooping up any small fish within their grasp.

#Write Photo – Lonely Sands

As the sun sets with a glow
The light off the ocean bay
Blinds our thoughts
Rays of sunlight glistening.

SQUAREs – Perspective – Fossil Shell

There was so much character in this shell that I had to stop and take notice. I shot its front side and then turned it over and shot the back side. Looks like a heart, not just in shape, but possibly with the valves pumping life. This shell hasn’t seen much action in years, maybe centuries!

CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Close Up/Macro

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge Engine 1504 is sitting in it’s final resting spot behind the original Jacksonville Union Terminal which is now the Prime Osborne Convention Center in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. For anyone who wants to admire its beauty and take photos,… Continue Reading “CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Close Up/Macro”

SQUARES – Perspective – Beach Rig

We just bought a new beach umbrella, but a few weeks ago when we headed to the beach, we improvised, MacGyver style. With an old umbrella pole and old wooden curtain rod, plus velcro straps and bungees, we rigged up our own beach oasis.
