Of all the places I could find happiness and dare I say it, tranquility, it’s at the kitchen sink. However, it’s not for reason you may think. There’s no denying I am quite the neat freak but that’s not the reason I love my kitchen sink.

It’s the view of the valley and mountain beyond that I love watching. Mother Nature has truly spoilt us in this part of the world with her constant beauty.

My VERY Happy Place!

Adding snow to this already beautiful scenery constantly leaves me gasping in awe. Then to add a majestic Bald Eagle, that is what they say… the cherry on the top! How blessed am I?

Looking at this forever evolving scene outside my window is definitively my Happy Place, this week’s challenge word from the Daily Post.





Morning Silhouette (October One Four Challenge: Week 2)

It’s Week 2 of Robyn’s One Four Challenge. It’s where we choose one of our own images, then each week for the next four weeks we process it in a different way. Hence the One Four Challenge!

This week I’ve altered both the Saturation and Hues of my photography to create the feeling of perhaps a pending storm. Not that I can remember but I’m sure I’ve bumped up the contrast. (I think that goes without saying now don’t you, lol?)

One Four Challenge - 1-4-2

Here is last week’s image, along with the original for you to make your own comparisons.

Morning Silhouettes (October One Four Challenge: Week 1)

Woo hoo, that time again for the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn of Captivate Me. Each month we get to choose our own photo which we then process in a different way each week for four weeks. Hence, the One Four Challenge.

Here is my photo, two trees silhouetted against a cloudy sky, one I took on one of my many morning walks whilst in Australia.

One Four Challenge - 1-4-1

Here is my original for a quick comparison. As you can see, this week I haven’t even gone in for the crop, I’ve simply converted this into black and white, tweaking the contrast just a little.

With a river outside my balcony and a beach around the corner, that was all the incentive I needed to get out to walking each day. To watch the sun rising over the water each morning, that was simply an amazing bonus!
