Phoneography Challenge: Nature Strikes a Pose


This was on a registration table at an art show I was at Saturday. A simple spring arrangement of flowers; the Snapdragon was just showing off.

Nature can be such a show-offy kind of gal. That famous Altamont Pass I’ve shown photos of before is also in full spring regalia; with the recent rain blessings we’ve received, the Altamont is stunning right now. It’s hard to drive over this pass and not be absolutely in awe of the beauty.


More on nature can be found today at Lens and Pens by Sally and her Phoneography and Non-SLR Devices Photo Challenge.

My photos today taken with a Samsung Galaxy Express phone.

    Nature really IS a showoff! and isn’t it great that we can appreciate it and record it? Snapdragon is such a sassy name for a flower. Love it.

      I am ever so grateful that I started up with photography, I see and appreciate more than I ever did. Yes, if I should ever get another dog I shall name her Snapdragon 🙂

    Startlingly different, yet both equally awe inspiring! Great captures Angeline.

    Your comment about that shot of the countryside reminds me of traveling to Michigan. Each time, the landscape has changed a bit with the passing of the seasons. Like your photo, Angeline, it’s really quite beautiful.


  5. Show off indeed it is. Lovely images. That field of cows and wind turbines feel very peaceful.


    • Angeline M says:

      Thanks, Otto. Even though traffic is whizzing by those fields of cows at 70 and 80 miles an hour over the pass, they are unaware of humanity’s hurry. It does seem peaceful on those hills.

    So serene countryside and I love that macro shot….lovely!


  7. Beautiful Angeline, I love those green hills!


  8. That snapdragon is out of control! I’ve always liked them, but really, their colours have traditionally been deep rather than in-your-face vibrancy! A new variety, perhaps?

  10. aloha AngelineM. i particularly like the snapdragon photo. the blossom draped over the edge of black like that creates a question of mystery for me. in many ways it reflects the human condition (imo). i like that a lot. aloha


  11. Lovely colors in your flower photo. Spring has been limping along here but picking up a bit of warmth and speed now, thank goodness.



    • Angeline M says:

      Thanks, Janet; the colors right now in all the flowers bursting forth are off the charts. We’ve had our first day of 80+ degree weather today. Glorious. Hope your spring comes soon.
