Lens-Artists Challenge #24 – Seasonal

It has been a good year for many parts of Texas. Due to the spring rain, everything that could turn green had outdone itself, and rain continued onto part of summer and fall.

I like summer only because hubby and I get to travel to cooler places.

Summer in Scotland looks a bit of cold.

There are many places in the world have only two seasons, dry and wet.

Like Hawaii, Miami is a great place to escape winter. It was at the mid 80 F in late November, we took a pleasant long walk along the beach in the afternoon into evening. Tropical monsoon climate of Miami divides a year into two seasons.

Countries with two seasons have longer growing season, for example, Thailand has three harvests a year.

Most of the time, winter in Texas is mild, it has been high 60s F during daytime these days. But the East Coast had heavy rain and flooding along the coast and snow and ice…

Texas, like other Gulf Coast states, is vulnerable to hurricanes and tropical storms during hurricane season. Texas is important to bird migrants. During hurricane season, it has immediate effect on bird migration depending on the seasonal timing and geographic location of the storms/hurricanes.

Many places have experienced extreme climate changes. It makes you wonder if this will become the new norm pattern. It’s worrisome.

Tis the season:

Enjoy the Holiday Season!

  1. Very interesting take on the challenge Amy, and beautifully illustrated with your photography. Worrisome indeed. December here has been wetter than I can remember and flooding is frequent not far from us. Hoping for drier January! Thanks for the lovely compliment 😊. Happy holidays to you and yours

    • Thank you, Tina! The theme gives us an opportunity to view the beauty of seasons from many places. I felt like to fly to Colorado to take some snow photos. Maybe next year. 🙂
      Happy holidays to you and your family!

  2. “There are many places in the world have only two seasons, dry and wet.” – That reminds me of the saying, “Texas has four seasons: winter, summer, summer, and … summer.” 😉
    I like the Scotland picture. 🙂 And the model railways remind me of my younger days, when – at this time of the year – father and I put up mine. Happy memories.
    Have a great week,
    Pit

  3. Lovely seasonal images, especially like the first two. My image of Texas does not immediately conjur up those beautiful green trees. And i love Scotland having spent four years there many years ago.

    • Thank you for reading, Patti. Weather here gets cold for a few days, then it goes away. So we can’t say we have winter. We are happy with the rain we have had. Hope to hear more about your trip soon. 🙂

  4. Glorious pictures, Amy. My favorite, however, is the one of the dry grasses and bare trees. It just pulls at me. I LOVE the lines of it, the colors in it, and the softness defined. Beauty can be found basically anywhere and this is one of those circumstances that Beauty came from desolation. Thank you for this post!! Loved it!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
