~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #86: Change Your Perspective ~

“Over the river and through the woods…”



I love the fairyland feeling of this shot, taken at ground level through flowers and across the meadow to the misty shores of Crescent Creek. We are five thousand feet above sea level, at the summit of Willamette Pass, in Deschutes National Forest, Oregon – USA. It is summer.


Perspective:  Underbelly

Mushrooms and toadstools, a common sight in the Pacific Northwest, are fun to photograph, and fascinating to learn about.

Taking shots up from the ground to their gills is an adventure – and a favorite view.


Perspective: Close-ups from a distance.


Adult Bald Eagle


Black-tail Mule Deer


Canada goose


Caspian Terns


Savannah Sparrow

jello and eagle 2

Jello is on high alert, and so is an immature Bald Eagle perched on a post along the trail to the beach.


Perspective: Figures made small by the immensity of their surroundings.

Whether looking up or across, space and place provide the perspective in these shots, all taken at Long Beach, WA.


Perspective: Beneath my feet.

Whenever I’m on a photo excursion my mantra is, look up, look down, and always look back. There’s usually something interesting to explore!


Perspective: From another creature’s point of view.


Jello sits in the rock garden on a sunny day in May, looking up at me while I take her picture looking down from the deck. She’s cocked her head in a way that makes me wonder what she’s thinking!

Thanks to Patti and all the Len-Artists who make this weekly challenge happen. I appreciate your hard work!

    Wow. Excellent series. Well done. The meadow and creek are indeed pastoral. I love dogs, deer, ducks, and other birds.

    This is a fabulous series, Lindy. There are so many shots to admire. I love the mushrooms, the ground-level view through the grasses, and of course Jello–to name a few! I’m delighted you shared your perspective(s) with us.

  4. What an amazing variety of pictures you presented in this post! The coastal black and white photo showing a figure at a distance was like a painting and the expression on Jello, priceless. Great going!

    I agree with all commenters, these are fantastic choices for the challenge, Lindy! Love the mushrooms and the fairy landscape…and always, always love Jello! Love your mantra too – looking back I feel is many times extra rewarding!

    Beautiful perspectives, Lindy. You did a grand job following your mantra. I love and agree with the part about always remembering to look behind… especially during a beach sunset.
