A few photos from this week

in sunset •  last year 

I just wanted to share a few photos that I’ve taken this week. I hope you enjoy them.

This picture is of a ground cover plant that grows in my yard that was broken off accidentally. It looks nice in the vase and I’m hoping it will root so that I can plant it back in the yard.

Here’s a picture of a ladybug that was on the stinging nettle plant in my backyard. I went out to gather some leaves for tea and saw the bug here. Usually ladybugs eat aphids so I figured the nettles might have some aphids on the leaves. Sure enough there were some clinging on the underside of one of the leaves that was in my tea cup. I tried to blow them off but the aphids would not let go of the leaf and I didn’t want to get stung by the nettle leaf so I ended up with a little extra protein in my tea, LOL. (At least no ladybugs were harmed)

On Saturday night the sunset was pretty interesting. The clouds were changing form very fast and at one point it looked like some rain was coming part way down from them. I like to watch the sunset when I get a chance.

Photography seldom captures the look of a sunset very realistically and I’m enjoying the fantasy look of the Google photos processing.

Good day, @lightsplasher (what a name :) As someone fairly new to keeping a garden, I'm happy to discover your blog, and the natural beauty that you share. Thank you _/|\_

Also, I know what you mean about the inadequacy of capturing the majesty of nature with a camera or, as a poet, with words for that matter... So very much is lost in translation.

But, we still keep trying :)

I believe there's a Zen saying that sums this up, succintly:

Words are like a finger pointing at the moon.

moon.jpg

But the point is not about the moon or the finger either, right? LOL. Thank you. :)

Haha, you do have a point there ;) I hope I'm not trespassing on your kindness by sharing this interview (because I wish to be better known to you) —

On Creativity, Spirituality, Home & much else

I find that the nettle tree is good, I hope to take care of it, and the beetle eat insect of wisdom to preserve the shrubs and plantations, second you are a professional person photography, You take pictures with high professionalism, I listened to the pictures, Most of the photos I like are the sunset combined with red twilight ، It's a romantic picture, I really thank you for sharing this beautiful article and wonderful photos ، good luck my dear friend @lightsplasher 👍👍😃 , all the best for you 😃😉

Thank you. All the best for you too. I see you do some very wonderful art.

Thanks you my dear friend @lightsplasher 😃 for nice word , I am happy so much hear a kind comment , and I am happy 😃 very much for meeting you , u r wonderful friend 👍😃

You are so right about the camera and sunsets. Photos never do them justice. Your edit is beautiful. Loved you ladybug shot and hope your plants sprouts some roots. Hope you are having a lovely Sunday:)

They are looking pretty wilted and dried up at this point. Oh well, I enjoyed them while they lasted but I'm doubtful they will root at this point, although it might still happen.

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.
That was extraordinary photography @lightsplasher !!!

Hello my friend @lightsplasher. how are you today, may be healthy and more successful. before I want to apologize because I can not comment on the two posts you are friends, because in the last few days I was too busy taking care of my first child who was sick, this is a very nice photography image

l love you my friend @linghtsplasher

Thank you friend. Very nice photography - I especially liked the first shot of the dragonfly on your post.

It is interesting how similar the red beetles are that we posted pictures of. The black patterns are a bit different on the shells and the beetle in your picture has a little more orange color.

You re-display a good image that you produce with your smartphone. But I have never seen you display some fish pictures. Like this for example

Thank you friend

Thanks friend, wow, big fish. I've heard that there were a great many big fish around here too once upon a time... Legends are told about a canary that employed over a thousand people here but it closed long ago. Hence the lack of big fish pictures on my part, LOL. :D

Thank you friend. Oh yes Do you like to eat fish?

fantastic photography

Sir, it was amazing and creative photography really loved it. thanks for sharing .

Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.

this captured photo was so much beautiful i always love your beautiful photography.

Buddy all the three pictures you have taken is really supeerrrrrr.... ❤️❤️❤️❤️
And Brother you forget me. Please visit my page always . I have uploaded another wedding pictures. Hope you like it. I have uploaded a tribal wedding picture.

Outstanding! The S9 got the ladybug? That is SWEET!!! It really takes a crisp close up! Wonder how the ladybug navigates those needles! I always wonder how much extra protein we get in our daily consumption of prepared foods... Nice work my friend as always!

wow how stunning is the last picture!!! I am blown away!
