Cee’s photos in her “pick a topic” for this week’s Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge made me think of vacations in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. So I searched through digital files for this week’s challenge and found three to share.
Are fisherman’s boats also called ships? Probably not. But I liked the reflections on the water in this last picture.
White seemed an unusual color for a hot air balloon, but with a little sunshine, a beautiful blue sky and fluffy white clouds I thought it rather striking!
Though I’d missed the launching of balloons at the Big Sky International Balloon Rendezvous 2022 that morning I thoroughly enjoyed chasing balloons as they traveled east of Billings, Montana. This second photo was taken seven minutes after the first one.
Early the next morning I was at the launch site and got a shot of the white balloon being filled with hot air.
Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – July Pick a Topic from [her] Photo prompted me to head to Zoo Montana / Yellowstone Arboretum with camera in hand. I knew I would find flower beds with trees in the background and hoped there might be a person or two wearing hats.
I realized yesterday that I had tentatively selected pictures for February color week of Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge but did not upload and post them. Imagine that!
I wasn’t convinced they met the challenge of having the color teal or turquoise. I’m still not sure.
Nevertheless, here they are. Because a blueish-turquoisish colored flamingo from my Aunt Clara’s yard in Arizona makes me smile. And because a dog named Moose was willing to pose when I met him the week of the original challenge in February.
