Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

 Hello my sweet friends.
How is your weekend going.
I am enjoying it to the fullest.  Saturday some girlfriends and I
took a 5 mile hike up at Mount Charleston..
(About a 45 min. drive from Las Veags)
I know that might not sound very far to some of you, but
it has been awhile for me and the high altitude got me
breathing pretty heavy!! And it was pretty darn cold.
But boy did it feel good.  I am so mad I didn't take my camera along.
What was I thinking.

So It's that time of the week again.
Time for a little hunt.
And here is what I found.



Macro/close-up
I just love the look of Lily's.  I usually don't have much luck 
photographing them..   But I am pretty happy with this shot.



Found Texture
This flower look so beautiful..  I just love the wonderful texture it has..
If only I knew what in the heck it was!




House
Here is a bird HOUSE that is in my back yard..
I am sure that some sweet bird would love to call this home..






Cover
You know I can't go a week without capturing my Grandson
in a photo..  He is so darn cute and my heart always skips a beat when I see him.
 Here he is under cover!!  




Tree

While we were on our trip to California we spent a day
at the Point Loma Light house and on the way there we stopped at this
Cemetery..  It was such a beautiful day.
I will share more photos soon!!


Well there you have it.
I wanted to thank Ashley hosting this fun hunt.
To see all the other entries you can hop on over to her blog.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Hugs, Linda

That was the perfect shot for cover and he just looks so adorable Linda. I really like that natural texture you found in the flower though I haven't a clue what it is either.

Kathy said...

Seriously????!!!??? I don't even know WHERE to begin here. Okay, yes I do...that GORGEOUS grandson of yours! That is one beautiful portrait of him. The tone, the softness...those eyes! Your macro is brilliant too. I love how you focused in on the (what are those things called?)...."center thingies"...haha. And that tree capture! I love the out of focus areas almost as much as I love the focussed areas. Just a wonderful composition all around. A great collection this week...I'm just so impressed!

So pretty Linda, not sure which is my favorite. Myles looks so sweet under that blanket. The lily did turn out very pretty though.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Outstanding photos!! Five miles sounds like a good, long hike to me! I'd be huffin' and puffin'. :)

SAMARA NAVI said...

Hi Linda, first thank you for your visit to my blog; for taking time out of your precious day. Your pictures are SO heart warming! Your grandson is SO adorable - the tree in the uniform cemetery...what a comment on LIFE! I enjoyed seeing what is important to you. Have a good day Linda, Samara

Gayle said...

Oh Linda your photos are so wonderful and they inspire me so much but I feel very 'inadequate' when it comes to taking photos, I would love to do better. The Texture photo is wonderful and the plant looks very much like what we call, here in Australia, a variety of Kangaroo Paw , no idea what its botanical name is: we mostly have them in yellows and orange. Little Myles is so adorable and that photo is perfect. xx

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

AMAZING job again- I really love that last one. We go by there a lot when we go home- it really takes your breath away.

creatingme said...

HI! I came here from PPF, but how happy to see your fotos. I am a lover of photography as well as painting and these photos are incredible. and I SOOOO want that texture! WOW!

Gillian Olson said...

All photos great again, your grandson is gorgeous.

Gerri Herbst said...

Magnificent photos my dear!

lisa said...

These are great photographs Linda. I love the flowers, but you know which one is my favorite. This one of little Myles is truly one of your very best. Absolutely gorgeous!

Buckeroomama said...

As I was going through the post, I was thinking, "Ooh, this one is good" and then "I like this one, too" and then "Wow!" You know what? I love them all! The macro (lilies are one of my favorite flowers!) and the found texture are awesome. GREAT set!

Jane Wetzel said...
