Scavenger Hunt Sunday..

Well it's that time of the week again to
show you what I have found for
Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

I am pretty happy to say I took all these photos
this week.  None are from my archives.
And for some reason I found it to be a pretty
tough week.  Some of these photos just happened.
And then I worked them into photos for the prompts.



SEASON
I was going to do a Christmas photo and use the words "tis the season".
But as I was relaxing in my backyard reading and trying not to pay attention to
all the dead leaves lying around, that I should be cleaning up, it hit me.
I could use this for a season shot.. Always thinking of SHS shots. 
Fall is one of the seasons.  
I don't believe winter has arrived in Las Vegas yet.
Maybe next week! 




COLORFUL
As I was trying to get another colorful shot of my 
Bouganvilla (like you haven't seen enough of those).   I caught this 
little fella hanging out.  Right there on my Bouganvilla. 
You know I had to snap off a couple of shots of him.  




WEATHER
I was on my way to play my Thursday morning card game 
with my girlfriends and as I was driving I happen to notice how beautiful the sky was.
I tried to capture it in my rear-view mirror. (Much prettier in real life)

  The weather has been gorgeous lately. 
 But the weatherman says that is all about to change. 




CALM
I was finally out in the backyard cleaning up all those leaves.
and when I stopped to take a break I was thinking how wonderful the
weather was... there was no wind.  It was nice and calm..
I have to say I just love days like this.




SILHOUETTE

Not a whole lot to say about this shot.
Sunsets always make for good silhouette photo.





Thanks so much for stopping by.
I do hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season.
I know Its a busy time of the year.
But I do hope you can slow down
and take a little time to enjoy!

Till next Time..

Linda

Hugs!

Cynthia Schelzig said...

Wow.....you always wow me with your photography.....have a super sunday......

Susan said...

Silhouette is my fave-but this is a great set. I too have looked in the side mirror and had to stop to capture. While I hate bugs-that shot came out well. Funny you say the SHS was tough. I found it easy. That always seems to happen. When I think it hard, ineveitably someone else thought it was easy. Hmmmm. Happy day Linda.

Nukke said...

Love your pics and your silhouette is as yellow as mine but your trees are different :) I like your colorful ans weather pics most and palm trees !!!

Tamar SB said...

These are amazing!! Love the curled leaf!

Georgianna said...

Hi Linda!

Well, I think that first photo is just beautiful! Great way to take advantage of the fallen leaves. Ours are still coming down but fortunately D is a bit fanatical about raking them so I don't have to. :)

I hope your week ahead is filled with holiday happiness!

hugs,

G

Fabulous photo's Linda, I love the shot of the fly only because of the picture you took. I am not fond of flies at all. Hopefully this morning they have all disappeared as it is nice and cold out! Have a wonderful Monday!
