Sunday Stills: Beauty or Beast

This week the challenge was to take something not so pretty and make it pretty in a photograph.

A few of these dandys are opening up in my yard.  Yellow is my favorite flower color!  I know it is sick, but I look forward to them blooming.

I have another Beauty or Beast in my lawn.  Years ago my husband leaned this old mower against a tree.

When I was little this was the only lawn mower my parents was a real beauty back then:)

Catching up with Sunday Stills!

It seems it is harder and harder for me to keep up with the Sunday Stills Challenges.

New Beginnings was the challenge for April 08 2012.


This is my Bluestem beginning to form leaves.  Most certainly a new beginning!

Reflections was the challenge for April 15.


I went to my archives for this one.  This photo was taken in March.  A pair of Canada Geese at Long Lake near Park Rapids Minnesota.

In honor of Ed was the Challenge for April 22.  Ed likes Macro photos.  It snowed on April Ed gets a snowy macro.

Japanese Tree Lilacs in town

I hope Ed’s Birthday was great!  Many Thanks to Ed and Linda for the Sunday Stills Challenges!  I think they have made me a better photographer:)

Sunday Stills: Bird Stalking

The challenge this week was to stalk some birds.

This was my best shot all week.
