Maple Leaves

There’s nothing Pedestrian at all about this shot, in my opinion.

While some may view this pile of leaves as just another fall clean-up chore, they are nothing of the sort.   In colour and kind, these maple-shaped wonders are representive of the great country that I call home.  Cheers, Canada!

Layered Rose Petals

Exquisitely Layered petals delicately unfolded for all to see,

Their soft, velvety texture inviting us in with each gentle curl,

Like an ocean wave, lapping up nature’s every ounce of beauty.

 

Fresh Corn-y Goodness

image

While this may not be the best photo composition in town, the perfect, yellow Structure of this subject is worthy of a submission in my opinion.  Picked and enjoyed from our very own garden just the other day, I had to capture the uniformed essence of these pre-cooked kernels of sweet corn; from end to end, round and round, not one single part of the cob was unfilled or unripe–nearly a first for me.  No wonder this much-loved vegetable appeals to kids and adults alike.  Add in a little slathering of butter and salt on top (though I also enjoy it plain), and you have a meal unto itself–just ask my husband, who recalls a few childhood dinners of exactly that.  And, the best part is that there is little prep and no cutlery required, saving on dishes and clean-up:-).  All that is needed once grilled, boiled or microwaved (yes, microwaved) is a firm grip, some solid teeth, a healthy appetite and likely a napkin, and you are Good. To. Go.  Now, is that corny or what?!  Hmmmm!

Sailboat Sunset

image

Last night, I just managed to capture this sailboat sailing through the path of the sunlight on the South Pacific waters here in Maui.  The sparkling light and the warm tones make my heart smile each and every time that I am fortunate to witness these amazing sunsets!  Aloha and Mahalo:-).

Ooh, Shiny!

A Mid-Summer’s Night Dream?

image

Last night, my husband ventured out into our back pasture and came out with this beauty of a capture.  I love the rich shades of green in the foreground highlighting the feathery Textures of the grasses contrasted by the golden and deep blue clouds in the sky.  The day’s on-again, off-again rain finally relenting in time for this gorgeous sunset to take hold.  As the cool, humid evening air wore on, Foggy conditions rolled in, blanketing this scene in white, wispy waves–a sight also to be seen, though somewhat reminiscent of a typical autumn’s eve.  Being that it is only the second day of August, however, I will steadfast to my Mid-Summer’s Night Dream and leave all notions of fall for a much, MUCH later date.  Cheers:-).

Melting on my tongue,

Energizing my spirit,

Refreshing my soul,

Nourishing my body,

No greater Satisfaction than that:-).
