~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #192: Earth Story ~


This week, Amy invites us to share stories of the natural world on Earth through photos. I begin with a close up shot of a Bovista mushroom, about the size of my fist – 3″ (8 cm), as it emerged in a dirt field.

Tree roots exposed in this rocky shoreline exemplify the symbiotic relationship of Earth elements; water, soil and flora.

At the edge of Orcas Island, rock emerges from boulders, as barnacle and seaweeds cling to the surfaces.

Humans use Earth’s resources, often to the detriment of the planet. Above wind turbines generate clean energy along the crest of the Columbia River Gorge, near Goldendale, Washington.

Which came first? Chicken or egg, flower or seed, summer or winter?

From mountain streams, to volcanic caldera lakes, to rivers and the oceans, water is essential to Earth’s Story.

“There’s no longer really any doubt that birds are a type of dinosaur. These days, the debate is about details. The strong evidence doesn’t just come from fossilized bones and similarities found across the skeleton, but from fossilized soft tissue – especially feathers.” Roger Benson

Wherever your camera takes you, please honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.🐾
