~ Weekly Photo Challenge – Earth ~

This photo is of a poster we purchased in 1970, from the Whole Earth Catalog. I had it mounted on hardboard and framed. It remains an awe-inspiring vision to me.


Earth Rising Over Moon

This shot was taken from an airplane above the fertile agricultural fields of the Palouse, in southeast Washington State.


Earth is in a continual state of growing, decaying and regenerating.

    Wonderful post, Lindy. It shows your longstanding love for the Earth and nature. As a photography nerd, I loved your fungi image. 🙂

    That series of photos is absolutely beautiful, especially the mushrooms (toadstools?) I especially like the Whole Earth Catalogue pic because I had that poster also, and carried it with me for many, many years. Lost it somewhere along the way so it was lovely to see it cherished again.

  3. Love your post – views from the macro to the micro level. Very nice!!

  4. Just lovely! You are my type of photographer!

    Love your opening shot Lindy – wondered how the heck you captured it until I read your full post! Nicely done.

    Lovely! Your post encompasses Earth!

  8. Lindy Le Coq says:

    Thank you, Vicky! I must say I’ve been a nature lover all my life.

  9. Lindy, what a lovely set of photos for this challenge. The first one is stunning, but the others are wonderful as well. I love taking photos of mushrooms, too, and your waiting garden looks great.

      Hi Janet! Thanks for your compliments — and for being a good role model about it’s OK to skip a day or two when you have other, more important fish to fry!!

      • Lindy, I’m only partly a good example. I’ll have posts scheduled, but I just won’t be online much during the trip. Thanks, though. It’s kind of nice to take a break, even a partial one. 🙂

      Thanks for dropping in with a comment, Q! Mushrooms, like amphibians, are a mark of our planet’s health. Love learning that they are among the oldest spirits of our sweet little planet — earth!
