…photography, food and musings of our travels
This was one of those rare moments that not only was the scenery simply glorious I… a) noticed the birds in the bottom left-hand corner in this small creek, b) my camera was in the car, and c) my husband kept the car still whilst I took the photo!
Considering how well the stars aligned for this photo it seemed very fitting for the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge of Against the Odds – a photo both of an unlikely occurrence and a shot you never thought you’d get!
Growing up back in last century, every house had a collection of terracotta pots and old tin cans overflowing with a variety of succulents. Ours were all stacked at the bottom of the back-stairs along with the begonias.
Now it would appear succulents have been deemed almost exotic. This one I discovered quite by accident growing in the Chihuly gardens. A miniature amidst the giants of Chihuly’s works.
For something so natural and so totally random, the details in icicles always fascinate me. These were the icicles we discovered hanging on the side of Niagara Falls as we walked the tunnels underneath. They looked as cold as we felt.
Details is this week’s word from Nancy Merrill and her A Photo a Week Challenge.
