Sunday Stills ~ Textures




"Textures" is this week's Sunday Stills photo challenge. Every time Ed announces the new challenge, I immediately start looking around in my world for subjects. I think that's why I like Sunday Stills so much...it opens my eyes and mind to the world around me.

My two submissions for this week are, in my opinion, opposites. I hope you enjoy...




This photo has two textures; one is the frost along
the top line of the rail and the second is the
pealing bark of the lodge pine pole.






Softness...to the touch and to the eye.


You can see more "textures" photos from the Sunday Stills photo challenge by going here in the comments. Enjoy your Sunday!

the first shot is interesting withl lots of texture! I agree, Sunday Stills has opened my eyes to different views and shots, too.

Sydney said...

Ah the first one at first I thought was some sort of landscape I was like gosh what on earth is that!?

Shirley said...

Like Sydney said, the first one had the look of a landscape at first-excellent shot! And I still haven't found me some daffodils.

Kiki said...

Gorgeous..nature's essence is captivating!

Kathleen Coy said...

That first shot is amazing!

Hey Karen. I enjoyed your contributions especially the daffodil.It makes one think Spring is coming. Yes that is snow you saw outside my window, I'm not going to complain because we have about 2 feet of snow less than we usually do, I am just learning to grit my teeth and stop whining about it.How did you make out at the vets?

Linda said...

I love the first one but want the second one ;)

Ann said...

The daffodil, it is nice and sofy. Please interflora and send me some.

Ed said...

Very cool, you need to do Macro Monday with that new fancy camera..;-)

Love the first shot. Great catch. But you also really captured the softness of the daffodil really well too. Hard to pick a favorite :-).

So glad you had good news on Colt. I've been worried.

Beautiful! I absolutely love the first shot. It took me a minute to realize what it was.

Awesome pictures, both of them. I like the starkness of the first and the color of the second. Very well done. Regular Guy
