Weekly Photo Challenge – Object

Fireworm on Still Life

Fireworm on Still Life

From our recent trip to Bonaire – here’s a shot of a Fireworm curled around a piece of coral. My object is the white coral branch as the pedestal for this colorful Fireworm. By the way, the Fireworm gets it name from not only its colorful red spots, but also because it has a vicious sting. Fortunately, if one simply avoids touching them, one can avoid their sting as they can’t swim!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Juxtaposition

My offering for this week’s challenge: A shot taken for an underwater photography class at the Denver Aquarium. This curious and seemingly grumpy red snapper got so close to my lens that I couldn’t focus on it’s face. the camera did, however focus on Peter having a beer in the bar while watching me dive in the Aquarium!

The Elusive Forms of Reality

I seek truth and beauty in the transparency of an autumn leaf, in the perfect form of a seashell on the beach, in the curve of a woman’s back, in the texture of an ancient tree trunk, but also in the elusive forms of reality.  ~Isabel Allende

Movie Monday – Skiing at Breck

Come with me down Columbia Ski Run at Breckenridge, Colorado. We’ll ride the lift up, get off the lift (while avoiding the very large guy who decided to walk in front of exiting skiers), ski the run and finally negotiate the crowd and lift line at the bottom. Well, it really wasn’t much of a line – the only lift on the mountain that didn’t host a large crowd.

Movie Monday – Reef Life

Still getting used to the GoPro, but here’s my latest attempt – footage from our recent dives in Bonaire. We’re going skiing this coming weekend, so stay tuned for next week’s Movie Monday. And have a great week!
