The photo prompt this week from The Daily Post is Weight (less).
When we are traveling all day, it makes it hard to really think of a photo that can work for these. But this photo I took Sunday night on the beach at sunset worked out perfect.
The waves on Sunday were so beautiful, I love watching them. They rise up, crest weightlessly, and breath in before they crash with all abandon.
A friend of mine also told me about this photo challenge, The Dogwood 52 week photo challenge. We decided to participate, and we also created a small group on facebook that we can post to, as well as the main page that Dogwood is running on facebook. If you would like to join us, we would love to have you. Just click on that link for the facebook group and we will ad you. The photo prompts for the 52 weeks are very good, and the 52 Week photography challenge page is great.
The photo prompt for week one was to take a selfie. I pretty much hate selfies, but pulled this one off.
Week two is a landscape shot and I used the same sunset shot that at the top of the post.
What do you think? Do you like photo challenge’s?
I love ANY kind of prompt that gives us a push into the imagination, where we can see things that aren’t there. Only a photo or a poem can help us see the invisible, and you captured that beautifully in the action of the waves and the still moment of your selfie. GORGEOUS.
Your beach photos and your selfie are awesome!
that’s breathtaking, I never got such a good photo what shows how mighty waves can be :o)
Hello, gorgeous captures of the waves. I love the golden colors at the beach. Cute selfie shot! Happy Tuesday!
I love how your photo caught the sea spray against the sunset. We live near the ocean shoreline (20 minutes away) and I spent most of my summers at the beach growing up and in my teens, so I know exactly what you mean about the surging and crashing of the waves. Their incredible power always amazes me, even to this day. Love your selfie!
We are so behind on where you are! Expected to see desert picture so time to catch up, beautiful photo of the waves the light and colors are amazing. Love Dolly
you have a great smile. Why isn’t it your selfie? Beautiful ocean waves my thirsty eyes needed to drink in the photoss
That’s a pretty cool photo challenge, we checked it out. We were thinking of joining, but after just finishing the one in 2015, I think we need a break. A year is a long time. Maybe next year. Your photos fit perfectly.
Beautiful waves! And like you, I dislike selfies — but yours is great! :)
I like your selfie photo, Mary. The weightless waves are gorgeous! :)
Stunning, as always!
As you know, I was challenged by Jen of Two Brown Newfies for the 7-day nature photo challenge on Facebook. I only did it because, well, Jen. But I’ve been really surprised at how many nice photos I have actually taken, and chuffed by the positive response. Of course, only one person I’ve challenged has taken up the challenge. But whatever. :)
As always, great work, Mary!!…:)JP
the photos are superb! I like the challenges, but I also like to see whatever moves YOU to share with us on your own.
Beautiful photos!!! The waves are incredible. Weightless is a great word for them.
Great pictures. I would love to get to the ocean, looks like it won’t happen this year.
Yes, I do like photo challenges and I have clicked on the link so please accept me. ;))
Great wave photos. Love the selfie too. (So hard to take a good one!)
Maybe when I quit publishing books (which might be soonish… who knows) I’ll be up for a photography challenge. At the moment I don’t really have time to try to get better at it. Some day!
Everyday should be this perfect; such a wonderful response to the challenge.
