Lens Artists Challenge: picking favourites
This week, Sarah (Travel with Me) invites us to share three of what we consider to be among your very best shots.
For this theme, I choose my favorites from my recent photos, except the last image.
My favorite photography subject is flowers. As July had been the hottest month in decades in Texas, I have seen just a few blooms around here and there. A couple weeks ago, I visited our local garden and saw this white lotus standing above the pond under the shade. It brought me a smile and made me forget the heat for a little while. This is my first lotus capture, it’ll stay with me for a long while.
Our July Alaska cruise trip was the first faraway trip since the pandemic. This image was taken at 4:25 am (I was up before 4 am) as the ship was cruising through the Alaska coastline. The clouds slowly floated above the sea and through the mountains, while the blue sky gradually turned into light pink. I felt lucky to witness this dream scene.
“I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high, I touched the clouds
This is gonna be the best day of my life”
