Flowers and Hills : Tuesday Photo Challenge – Shape

This weeks Tuesday Photo Challenge from Frank is unusual one, Shape.

There are many shapes that fascinate me, some of which I will rather not go into in a public forum.  In nature there are many shapes that really attract me. Two of them are flowers ( most delicate ) and mountains ( most resilient ). Capturing a few of them here.

These photos are of flowers from my garden taken at different time. The first one was taken yesterday and the one following was taken today. The other two were from last year.

Looking at these enchanting flowers, I forgot about the mountains.  So here it is. A photo of the majestic El Capitan in Yosemite Valley taken during a trip last week.

In My Life: Skooby: Tuesday Photo Challenge

Ah, it’s Tuesday and right on the dot Frank Jansen’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt was there in my reader.

This week’s theme is “In My Life” and Frank has posted a adorable photo of one of his Cardigan Welsh Corgis.

It’s true that our dogs are a big part of our daily life.  Our dog, Skooby, for last eight years has become an integral part of our life.  So without much ado, here is a photo of Skooby sunbathing.
Sun bathing Skooby

Don’t be fooled by his innocent face
He is stuck at terrible two
Though he seems to be sleeping
Up his sleeve
He has a trick or two
Keeps us always
On our toes
With all his mischievousness
He is adorable though

After we got Skooby, his morning and evening walks were added to my daily routine.  He takes his time to attend to nature’s call, smelling the roses (Ahem!) on his way.  I try to use that time positively as much as I can by photographing the surroundings.  Below is one such photo taken today morning.

Sunrise over Varanasi : Tuesday Photo Challenge – Exotic

As the sun came up over the Ganga river ( River Ganges ) on the morning of December 18, 2017 as I was walking the ghats in Varanasi, the sky was covered by a flock of birds ( seagulls ) and nearly covered the rising sun.  I had a split second opening to take this photo.

Embraces all
Even the sun
Reflecting
On her riverbed
