Nature is the new black!

It’s all been happening over at my personal Facebook page.  Nature is the new black! ….. and I couldn’t be happier about it!

In February I was nominated by a blogging friend for a Nature Challenge where I needed to post a nature photo each day for 7 days. 

This month I was nominated by a photographer friend for a Nature Challenge where I needed to post a nature photo each day for 7 days. 

It’s been fun.  I loved it – both times!  I could post a nature photo every day forevermore!

So anyway, I thought – why just keep it to my personal Facebook page?  I’ll share the images I posted for the challenges here on the blog.  So today for Wordless Wednesday I’m sharing the 14 images I posted for those two nature challenges.  Some of you may have seen one or two of these before, but regardless I hope you enjoy!

    These are just lovely, my favourite one is that of the pink rose, and the strahan geese. Are you planning to print any of these out? They would look fab on any wall Min.

    Gorgeous pics Min. I think my favourite is the waterfall in Tasmania, though I love the shots of roses too.

    Wowzers Min, you’re taking florography to a whole new level! Those tulips – swoon! I think you should definitely print some of those florals, imagine how great they’d look on a calendar, or stationery even!

      Oh thank you Sammie – You’re too kind! I have only ever printed one of my photo’s which I have in a frame. I really should get my act together and get more printed. πŸ™‚ xo

    These are fabulous… I love the top shots of both your sets, and the lake shot in the bottom set. I love seeing shots from different parts of the world.

    Hi Min,

    its been a while since I commented on your artistry.

    Please accept my apologies.

    As per usual all your photos are of such an amazing and high standard. But four to me stand out The Fungi on Sarah Island, they stand out against the green of the moss and appear almost prehistoric. The softness of the Gerbera is wonderful and that deserves to be enlarged and printed. The autumn leaves made me feel like I was next to the tree breathing in the crisp air and I just loved the cheekiness of the way the water dragons head was cocked was perfect.

      Patrick, it’s so good to hear from you again. It’s not been the same without your insight and feedback on my images. They are always very much appreciated. Take care, Min x
