Mobile Photo Challenge: Nature And More (1/2/2017)


“Year after year autumn leaves create their legacy. Since trees play a crucial role in the health of our planet, their leaves are far more than a boost of color and design in the landscape. Each leaf serves a purpose for the leaf of its Mother tree and the air that we breathe.”

~ Sally D (Lens and Pens) 


We had the warmest weather during Christmas week in 100 years in many parts of Texas according to the local weather report. It went up to 80 F on Christmas day when we were in Dallas area, but a few days before that it was 30 F at night. We also had some rain and cloudy days in December. It got up to 75 F the past weekend, yesterday I took almost 4-mile trail walk under the sun and saw some deer out there enjoying the warm weather. 🙂

For Sally’s Mobile Photo Challenge: Nature. Captured with my iPhone 6, as always.


Wanna know where and how people use iPhones?


Have a great week!

  1. Amy, truly enjoyed your first post of the year. Your images of leaves are lovely, especially the first with the duo. Also liked all the statistics about iPhone users. It’s such a phenomenon, and we get to travel through the continual innovation. It’s a joy to have you as part of the photo community. Happy Photo Challenge.

  3. thanks for the info about cell phone use – I need to share that with some folks = and your two leaves are so artsy placed like that – nice frame!

    also – you just inspired me to use a photo I took the other day in our yard – I looked up and saw a leftover nest.
    and good morning to you – (PS did you need sunscreen on xmas)

    • Good morning to you, too, Yvette! Thank you for reading the info. Isn’t that fascinating. I did some cropping for the first image.
      I actually thought about putting sunscreen. Today is sunny and going to be mid 70 F. It’s like spring comes early. 😀

  6. Good evening, Amy. Great photos. I love maple leaves. Seeing them brings a smile to my face.
    The information about iPhone photographers is very interesting. I wonder what would qualify a person as an iPhone photographer. As long as I take photos with my iPhone often? Or there is something else?
    Good night.
