2017-09-26: WPC Layers

The WordPress photo challenge prompt for the week is layers.  I shot this image while on a bird watching boat trip along the Kazinga Channel in Uganda.  There were several fishing villages along our route, and most of the boats were already in for the day by the time we set out.  The person taking the climb back to the village from the shore caught my eye from the boat.

I feel this image is a great example of showing off many layers; not only do we have the water, the land and the sky, but several layers of nature interspersed with man made objects.

I hope you enjoy my take on this topic.

WPC: Layers

2017-06-16: Feel Good Friday

The skies here have been pretty dreary the last couple days, so I thought seeing a few African sunrises would perk me up.

Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead 🙂

2017-05-30: WPC Danger

This past weekend, my Mom and I were discussing one of her friends that is terrified of birds.  So in honour of the topic of Danger, here is a post that is only spells danger for Norma Jean, and anyone else with ornithophobia.

Caution, beaks and feathers ahead!

2017-05-01: Monochrome Monday

This monochrome Monday is features some of the primate images from my time in Uganda.  Trekking to see gorillas and chimpanzees is a bucket list item for many, and it is something that I would highly recommend.

I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful week.

2017-04-21: Feel Good Friday

I’ve gotten these posts done ahead of time, as today I am heading back to Africa for another amazing adventure.  I am so looking forward to being out in nature, being close to elephants, and frankly, being warm (the winter has dragged on and spring has been slow to start).

I thought I would share a few of my artistic impression images, the ones that I edit to look like paintings or that end up a bit over the top.

I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful day.
