I think this is either really easy or really hard.
I am really loving the weather patterns here in Turkey. It seems we get about 3 weeks or so of clear skies and sun and then a day or so of cloudiness that sometimes brings rain. This last week it also brought a storm. I was awaken one night with very loud thunder and lightning. Very fun. Also, this storm stuck around for about a week. I was starting to think this was what winter is like here. But than one morning the sun was out and it has been out ever since.
This is a small puddle that I found that morning.
So, what is this Nature Up Close thing happening on my blog? I know you are wondering. Well, first and foremost I am in love with nature. I am happiest if I am away from man made structures and out in the middle of it. I am especially fond of forests, but I also love untouched fields, mountains, and oh, I love water in its many forms. I love to examine all the many varieties of life I find in these places. Luckily, since life doesn’t allow me to spend all my time out away from it all, I find just as much happiness discovering all the treasures that are in my own neighborhood, yard, and sometimes even in my own house. I love to examine objects I find and discover all their details. In :: 3 I loved to watch the rings of water in that small puddle. I was amazed to discover that each of those tiny rings would cast a shadow. In :: 1 I was in love with the awesome patterns that were going on on that turtles back. It even gave me inspiration for a new quilt for Magnus.
So, for now, in between crafty endeavours, I am loving my camera and am capturing some of the details of nature that I love so much. Feel free to play along with me but please don’t feel obligated. I’ll post a picture and leave you to guess what it is until the next Nature Up Close posting.
If I still love doing this, in February or so, I may change things around a bit and maybe have a guessing contest or something. With prizes and all. How does that sound?
