Golden Poppies, and Golden rocks
We arrived back in Utah county last Monday. Al had a Dr. appointment on Thursday, and he felt we needed to get back to his shop and get things started. We’ve been planning on selling his shop, but even more so now.
Since we landed here it’s rained everyday, and been way colder than either of us like. So not much going on with scenery, or photography. I am chomping at the bit…ha ha…to go visit the wild horses, and when it ever stops raining, we will go spend a few days out there.
I did however pre plan for this weeks photo challenges, and took these photos while we were still in the lovely desert.
This shot is for the Dogwood 52 challenge. This week is Storytelling-The Golden hour.
I am a huge fan of shooting in the golden hour, and when we are in the desert it is simply magical. These are the poppies outside Oatman, Az and this single tall purple flower really stood out to me. To me that was the story, the tall flower standing out and being an individual in all the orange poppies.
The 2 Lil Owls challenge is Creative Framing. I shot this in the Lake Mead area at the small red rock place I showed you last week. The red sandstone is fascinating the way it weathers, and forms.
We are planning on being here for a few months, so the next several weeks of challenges will be….well, challenging to say the least.
If you follow on Instagram or Facebook you may have noticed my post on Sunday afternoon. One of the sculptures that Al had in the Sioux falls sculpture walk show was stolen, they think sometime on Saturday. How on earth they got it is beyond me. They are welded into place, so not an easy thing to undo that. Anyway, we heard late Sunday that the piece had been found by two college students in a nearby parking lot. Another weird mystery, as to why they would go to all that trouble and leave it somewhere. Happily, both the sculptures can now go onto Eau Claire, Wisconsin to their sculpture walk show.
