~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Cooling ~

Yes, I have been busy with other important facets of my life, yet I’ve missed posting regularly. Now I see that Tina Schell, and three other bloggers (previously unknown to me) have developed a consortium to provide those who loved the weekly challenge with a new place to find inspiration and share our photographic efforts!

While writing this post I was at the summit of Willamette Pass in the Oregon Cascade Mountain Range (USA). Daytime temperatures were into the 90’s (33c) though afternoon breezes helped ease our evenings.

The cooling power of water is powerful – in mirages and in photographs. Please enjoy a few of my favorite images of “Cool Water”.*

*When I was younger, my family loved to sing together especially songs by The Son’s of The Pioneers. “Cool Water”, written by Bob Nolan in 1936, was one of our favorites.  Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as number 3 on the Top 100 Western songs of all time.

  1. So glad you’re back! I’ve missed you. Highs are in the triple-digits here, so all that “cool water” is refreshing. And, yes, I remember that song.

    Hi lindy, and welcome to the challenge!! So happy to see you back in The blogosphere 😊. Loved your images of cooling waters. At the moment we’re being deluged by rain for family beach week so I’m a bit envious!

  3. Wonderful water shots, Lindy! 🙂
    We are finally getting some much-needed rain today!
