Weekly Photography Challenge: Endurance

There are signs of endurance throughout nature:  Leaves that hang on despite wind and rain and passing seasons; the bark on a tree that flakes and curls yet continues to protect; or the flower, long dried and faded, but still clinging to the branch that bore it.

These are my submissions for this week’s photography challenge: Endurance.

In the Water

A quiet little brook near my family’s camp doesn’t look like much.

But if you spend a minute noticing the details, seeing the artful lines along its bank and the abstracts in the water, there is a plethora of picture possibilities.

Like this painterly reflection.
