One Word Photo Challenge – Horse

….. thanks to Jennifer Nicole Wells  

For this week’s photo challenge Jennifer chose the word Horse. Last summer I photographed a number of horses in Italy. They were all in large public squares and were obviously working horses.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Walking Paths & Trails

…..a great day at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton

I must have known that Cee would come up with a challenge involving walking paths and trails.  Yesterday, while walking through the rock gardens at the Royal Botanical Gardens I took a lot of photos of the beautiful foot paths and trails that wound through this scenic gem in Hamilton.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Woods

…..thanks to Frank for this week’s photo challenge – woods

Next to water I love the woods. My cottage sits in the woods a little ways back from the water’s edge. There are some definite advantages to having the cottage tucked away in the woods. One of them is that on very hot summer days it is always cooler in the shade of the forest.
