    Love the creativity and spontaneity in this week’s challenge! Am heading to a National Park and going diving this weekend, so will be sure to document my Now! moments!

    Beautiful images this past week. Can’t wait to see everyone’s this week.
    Here’s mine, along with my reflection, on NOW!

      Good picture contrasting the old to the new shown in the seed pod and emerging bud on the liquid amber tree. You also captured some nice detail in the fungus and wood bark shots. Thanks.

        Thank you! I took some more photos today, as the drizzle stopped and I think the lighting was pretty good! Thank you for commenting here and for signing up to follow my blog!

      Wow! The colors that you capture in your shots are amazing. Just strolling through the woods, it’s so easy to miss the vivid colors in nature. Bark isn’t just brown. It’s pink and red and orange and salmon and cream and gray and azure and cobalt and white and green and…I’m sure I’m missing some. You bring it all to life with your camera! Thanks!

      My favorite in this batch is “Layers.” The fungus looks like velvet. Beautiful.
