Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: Perfect Patterns Some time back I wrote about the Fibonacci pattern in nature. https://sprawly.wordpress.com/2017/03/11/patterns-in-nature-or-the-fibonacci-sequence/ It's fascinating and now I look for it everywhere; and it IS everywhere! Cactus bloom Man-made patterns are interesting in their own way. But I always gravitate towards nature.
Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: Diagonals Diagonals, leading lines... they're everywhere! I love taking photos of roads. Especially when you don't know where they lead. In this photo not only does the road lead you, but the trees do too. Sometimes they seem to go on forever. Others seem to just stop. Some are more horizontal. They... Continue Reading →
L-APC: Home Sweet Home
Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: Home Sweet Home I figured I'd stick to my own state for this challenge. I live in Oklahoma. It doesn't have big mountains, or ocean, but there is diversity here. Some might surprise you. I've lived here most of my life and I've been surprised. I've written about the Talimena Drive several... Continue Reading →
L-AC: Wildlife Close to Home
Lens-Artist Challenge: Wildlife Close to Home There are a lot of deer in our area. Turkeys as well. A Roadrunner on the lawn mower. It's always fun to watch the Jackrabbits. This little guy was fun to photograph.

Lens-Artist Challenge: Earth Story I love nature. I'd choose being out in the natural world vs. a city 1000/1000 times. For me, manmade structures can be awesome but can't compare to mountains that have been here for millenia. Denali Park, Alaska Sometimes we are gifted with a brief glimpse of nature's glory with a sunset... Continue Reading →
Lens-Artist Challenge #191: Curves

That thought is reinforced whenever I run into a table corner. Many Glacier, Glacier Nat'l Park The Loretto Chapel "miracle" staircase. Loretto Chapel Colorado Utah The... Continue Reading →
L-AC: A Special Place
Lens-Artist Challenge: A Special Place I'm choosing to focus on special places I've seen, rather than the obvious which is home and with my family. Literally breathtaking. Peyto Lake, BC, Canada. Hwy 93 (Icefields Parkway) can be seen in center right, going through the valley. Again, literally took my breath away when we topped the... Continue Reading →

L-AC: Back Roads
Lens-Artist Challenge #158- Back Country Roads I couldn't pass up this challenge. The hard part is not flooding this post with so many photos! We love back roads and go for a drive just for fun, to get out of the house. It's refreshing and gets our brains out of a rut. So I have... Continue Reading →
