~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #230 – Last Chance ~


As I look through the photos I’ve taken in 2022, I realize there aren’t as many as in years past. Blame it on the dogs! They didn’t eat my homework, however they have kept my hands pretty busy when we’re walking 🐾. My iPhone 13pro has been my workhorse, though I did get out for a couple shoots with the Panasonic.

Pacific Ocean wave action is always a joy to behold. Above are three shots that capture both the force and power of the waves, and the play of light through and on the water.

Above a beautiful Steller’s Jay visiting my deck seed-feeder. These are resident birds which I enjoy seeing year-round. Below, a cheeky peek at a Red-necked Phalarope as is dips into the marsh pond at the Breakers for breakfast!

Sunrise, sunset and moody clouds.

Just in case you didn’t see this posted on Wordless Wednesday, the prize photo of 2022 is Daisy in the tree after a squirrel, with stalwart brother Max watching from solid ground!

Thank you to Tina for an inviting end of the year challenge. I remember when WordPress stopped posting the weekly challenge and Tina, Patti, Amy and Anne-Christine stepped up to fill the void. Thank you all, and I look forward to another year with new hosts and guests to keep us on our toes.

Cheers to the New Year! Please remember to honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.🐾

    Well Lindy, I thought it couldn’t get better than that image of Daisy but then I read your closing thought and it made my day – maybe even my year! Love having you with us and greatly appreciate your finding time to share these wonderful images despite the chaos of the season! All the best to you and yours.

      Thank you so much, Tina. You have been a lifeline and inspiration for me over the years! I had a wonderful Christmas Eve with my family here at my home, and then just Creighton and me with the dogs on Christmas Day. Hope you have had a fun and festive time. Happy New Year!

    A stunning collection of your neck of the woods once again. I love all your sky photos and my favorite is of the stellar bluejay. It is always a pleasure to see your name pop up with the challenge. I know it will be a deep breath, regardless of the camera. Happy New Year.
