30 Days of Photograhps IV - Illuminate

It was a nice walk on a hot day.  She was grateful for the shade of this huge pecan tree.  Then she realized she was the target and the light marked the spot........



She melted into a giant blob (I had originally typed blog), absorbed by the earth in a matter of seconds.

Oops.  It is not safe to be the enlightened one.

I hope you will forgive Evil Twin.  She comes from the dark side and has a warped sense of humor.  For awesome photography, go see Ms. Ziva.  Her post will direct you to the great ones.

Evil Twin is truly warped but YOU took a great photo. Love the play of light and shadow in the forest.

Paula Wooters said...

Ha! Evil Twin may have turned you into a blob, but at least you got this awesome photo before you melted.

That's a gorgeous pic. I'd take a walk in that forest.

"It is not safe to be the enlightened one".

I know this truth well.

I have the gift or shall I say curse, of vision.

Sometimes I wish I didn't know what was going to happen.

Fantastic photo!!

Nicky said...

Hmmm, I don't have an evil twin but I have melted into a giant blob before.

That's a beautiful picture.

I love that photo. It has a summery, warm feeling.

Ziva said...

What a lovely idea for the theme. You know, some people melt in the sun.. Me, I just sparkle.

Great light on the tree. I always love that. Walking in nature and then BANG the sun lights up the woods.

Malisa said...

What is that on the ground? The melted blob left behind a backpack? Wait! Is it a camera bag? I need a new camera bag. Grab it and run!

Love the light playing through the leaves of the tree.

Lovely capture. Nature always illuminates.

Mike said...

Damn that's a big tree!

Nora Blithe said...

I love being in the woods and seeing the sunlight slant through the branches. Is it just me or does it feel otherworldly to others too?

@Ziva - Thanks. I'm not surprised you sparkle.

@Mike - Thanks. Yes, it was a little dark through there so it was nice to see the light. :)

@Malisa - Thanks. Hee Hee. I imagine the ground claimed that bag, too.

@Janine - Thanks. I love nature.

@Mike - Yes, indeed, the biggest pecan tree in the nature area.

@Nora - Me, too. I think I left Texas and went to another planet.

Giant Blog = Freudian Slip!!!! ha ha !!!!

This is a GORGEOUS picture. When I can't be at the beach in the winter I go hiking in the woods, looking for things just like this!

The shadows are amazing... blob or no. Beautiful shot.

You have a pecan tree? Do you realize how wonderful that is? I love pecans, especially in pecan pies. I'm coming to visit. When's the harvest?

ReformingGeek said...

@Katherine - Thanks! I love hiking, too.

@StarTraci - Thanks!

@MikeWJ - There are pecan trees around here but most don't produce. Those that do produce fat squirrels. There are pecan orchards in Texas that usually harvest in the fall. YUM! This tree is in a nature park near Austin.

At least you found the light.
