I am grateful for all

Thanks for stopping
by to share in my view of the world.

What a wonderfully amazing end of the day!

I had spent the day out shooting with two of my friends, and just as we got back
to Holly Lake Ranch we saw the color through the trees.  We immediately searched for an open field to experience the colors and quickly changing shapes in the clouds.

Lovely  morning at the Gardens

came back around.

#nalandamiksang, #wayofseeing, #lookingandseeing

I submitted 5 images to the
juried show "Secret Garden"
at the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library.

This was a competition in
collaboration with Mercer Botanic Gardens
of photographs featuring the
plant life of Mercer Botanic Gardens.

All 5 of the images were accepted!
The show runs from Oct 16th through Nov 20th.

I figured everyone would
be sending in pictures
of beautiful flowers.
So I went for the images
that were not the traditional
garden images, but showcased
other parts of the garden's flora.

All Miksang shots!

It is also easier than red
to photograph, particularly outside.

I love these paddle boats
that you can take into the lake
by the Houston Zoo.

I haven't ridden in one
for years and years.
But it is fun to watch people
try to get around in them.
 
And to photograph the reflections!

The fog eventually began 
to break up a bit at the 
surface of the water.
 
But up where the pelicans
were flying, it was still very thick
I wonder how they see
where to fly in 
the fog!

actually contained little buggy friends!

Here is  one that may take
you some time to find them
with their wonderful camouflage.
