Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

The saying goes “You can’t judge a tiger by his stripes”. However, I can judge a tiger by his teeth. And they tell me to not get too close. This week’s photo challenge is From Lines to Patterns. Tigers fit into both categories, with their lines making up their patterns, which allow them to effectively hunt and survive. This one really struck me, I hope you enjoy it too!

Beautiful Reflection

As many of you know, I really love reflections. They are just another way to see the same thing, but from a different angle. This Water Lily was interesting in that it was there, floating amongst all the green leaves and lily pads, just soaking up the sun. The whiteness of the flower really struck me, along with the reflection of it in the water. I hope you all enjoy!

P.S. I started a Facebook page for my photography, so feel free to swing by and LIKE it on Facebook. My posts will update to that page as well.

Harvest Weather

It’s wheat harvest time here in Kansas. The wheat is golden, and the wind is blowing, and it’s hot. That is the typical Kansas Wheat Harvest (for those of you who have not experienced one). With the heat today (In Great Bend, KS it got up to around 111 degrees) the thunderstorms really started firing up as I was making a beeline for home. I passed this field, which had obviously NOT been harvested yet, and had to go back because of the amazing thunderheads building in the background. I hope you enjoy the photo!

Kansas… If you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes

Kansas has two things that have always amazed me (besides my beautiful wife, of course): Sunsets, and storms. The weather can change in moments, bringing in some violent storms, and you can watch them build from a distance. We have had quite the turbulent spring, and with the seasons changing into summer, storms have begun brewing in earnest. Don’t get me wrong; after last year’s drought, I’m not complaining for the rain at all. I love a good storm. But I’m also very happy to watch them build in other places and not impact my home. This storm was brewing towards Kansas City a couple of days ago, and I thought this made for an interesting shot. I hope you enjoy!
