Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Three

In response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Three or the number 3

I have a trio of images for this challenge.  The featured photo is called the Three Sisters, which are three detached pinnacles at the end of a mesa in Monument Valley, Arizona.

The next shot is of three elk resting in a meadow near the Lumpy Ridge Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.  I did manipulate this one a bit in Photoshop to emphasize the elk.

For the third image, I take you to sunset on the Atlantic Ocean at Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  This would be called “Three Palms”.

Historical Photographs, Part II

Pinnacle Peak-Steve Bruno

My photography teacher said repeatedly, “If you see something that sparks your interest, take the photos now.  It may not be there or look the same when you come back!”  He lived in the desert in Carefree, Arizona, and I knew he was referring to Pinnacle Peak (above) on more than one occasion.  At the time, developers were rearranging the map at an unprecedented pace on the perimeter of the metropolitan Phoenix area.  The location of this photograph is either someone’s backyard or a golf course now.

It’s not just development that alters our world.  Glacier covered lands don’t look the same as they did a decade ago.  Weather can wreak havoc in a matter of minutes.  Unforeseen disasters can happen at any moment.  In today’s digital era, my teacher’s words don’t seem as relevant as they once were.  You will never again hear someone say, “Hmmm, I don’t want to take that one.  I’ve only got 8 shots left on this roll of film, and I don’t want to waste them.”   Perhaps his message should be updated to “Keep an extra memory card in your bag at all times for those moments when you come across something special” 🙂

WPC: Roy G. Biv and his nighttime rainbow

Seattle Flowerpot

Seattle provides interesting subject matter, and I always find myself venturing the streets, sometimes into the evening.  On one of my trips to the Jet City, I came across this oversized flowerpot.  The lighting on the building across the street completed the spectrum for my rainbow in the dark.

It seemed too easy to post a rainbow shot for this challenge, but if you must see one of my favorite rainbows, check out my previous addition to my blog, Calgary, Revisited.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “ROY G. BIV.”

WPC: Off-Season in a place called Sunflower

While driving between Phoenix and Payson, Arizona a number of years back, I came across this roadside sign.  “Opening Soon” was a relatively loose term here.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Off-Season.”
