Thematic Photographic 198 - The Natural World

Rocky Mountain High
Somewhere in Alberta, Canada
May 2012



















Oops, looks like I missed a week of Thematic. Sorry about that: Life got busy (here and here). Thanks for your understanding, and thanks for continuing to participate in this admittedly zany little pursuit.

I wanted to get back to basics for this week's theme. It's come to my attention that the world can be a pretty spectacular place. Despite humankind's best efforts to trash the place, our planet can still stop us dead in our tracks with its beauty. But only if we take the time to notice. I'm glad I looked out the window and noticed the Canadian Rockies below. They seemed to reach right up to the sky, and made me wish we could circle for a while to take it all in.

So for the next week, I'd like us all to look for similar moments: Take the time to notice the natural loveliness all around us, and shoot it if you can. Easy. And eye-opening, I hope.

Your turn: Take a pic (or two, or ten) in support of this week's theme. Post it to your blog or website. Leave a comment here so folks know where to find it. Visit other participants. Repeat and encourage friends, family members and complete strangers you meet on the city bus to join in. Just because. (For more info on how Thematic works, click here. Otherwise, enjoy...and thanks!)

Just a few shots from the shortest camping trip I’ve ever participated in… well worth the time in the Natural World, though.

Well, my photo is nowhere near as stunning as Carmi's, but I'd like to invite everyone over to play my little game with this theme.

I've missed so many! But here is one - I stopped along the beach road to watch a flock of birds. So did this woman, and while I was photographing the birds, she ended up in my shot - and made it more striking.

Thought I was done with this theme, until this evening when a family of ducks decided to take a rest in my driveway. See them here.
