Kim’s new texture “appreciate” led me to use part of the verse from Philippians 4:8. A heart filled with appreciation and gratitude is able to see those quiet beauties that surround us. My Abutilon is blooming again, a gift.
I was inspired by Kat Sloma’s tree photos to start a series of the oak tree that hangs over my backyard. This one was taken early this morning and was edited in Photohsop, onOne Photo Effects and Filter Forge. I hope to take more photos of this incredible tree at different times of day with different effects and filters.
I decided to do Alisa’s Travel Big challenge; and although I had to go into my photo archives from earlier this year, I thought the 17th hole at Koele on the island of Lanai fit the bill. It is a big course, and a definite challenge! The tee blocks are a lot higher than where the hole is located; it takes a BIG player to hit it just right!
