Phoneography Challenge: Nature

It’s that time. First Monday of the month, Lens and Pens by Sally has the Phoneography Challenge: Nature. Mother Nature is one force to be reckoned with, that’s for sure. Once she makes up her mind, she’s going to do exactly as she pleases.

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

I love trees. I suppose you could call me a “tree hugger” as I’ve been known to hug a tree or two throughout my days. When I was a kid, I used to love climbing as high up as I could go. My poor mother used to absolutely have frenzy attacks looking for me throughout the neighborhood. But the real attacks came when she finally looked up and saw me sitting in the tiny branches up high. I think about that time and wonder how I ever developed such a fear of heights now in my adulthood. I can barely climb a stepladder let alone climb a tree. I suppose it’s what they call mortality. Once you realize you’re not invincible….well, the fun just sort of goes away with that realization.

  1. The last one is so captivating. The softer tones gives it that Southern flavor of a hot and steamy summer’s day. The story can go on and on. Really well done. Happy challenge.

    I also remember that I enjoyed climbing trees when I was a child. We had a willow tree and a seckel pear tree that were great to climb.

    I love trees as well and these are such beautiful shots. I am scared of heights so tree climbing was not something I would do, but I do hug them. Thanks for sharing and glad I found your blog Linda. 😀 *hugs*

    The last two trees are magnificent. They look like the enchanted trees of fairy tales. 🙂
