Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Older Than 50 Years

I didn’t think I would be entering any photos for this challenge, as I couldn’t think of any subject to photograph.  Then, a couple weekends ago, I signed up to go for a hike to Ancient Forest.  We had a beautiful day for a hike in the forest, and lucky for me, a member of one of the local hiking groups accompanied the group I was with, to give a talk about the area.

Certainly if you are in the Prince George area it is a beautiful place to visit, and a very unique ecosystem in the region.  Some of the cedars in the forest were in excess of 5 metres in diameter and over 2,000 years old.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half

This weeks WordPress photo challenge is half and half, and the first thing I thought of was all the sunset photos I took during an Okavango Delta sundowner cruise.  We stopped the boat in a tiny bay, and had a beautiful view of this small island with the sun setting behind it.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Colour – Bright Green

Here is my photo for Cee’s new Colourful World challenge.  The colour of the week is lime or bright green.  This little bee eater, perched amongst the bright green leaves of several different types of plants, seems a good fit.
