    • Thank you, Cee! We hoped to see the Tillamook Lighthouse on that trip, but it was too foggy. Makes for great pictures though.

  1. Amazing contrasts of nature through your lens, Siobhan! These landscape images are breathtaking. The ocean beach is like a beautiful painting. I love the contrasts of the huge rocks vs obsidian. Great photos!

    • Thank you, Amy! I had fun finding photos where the subject matter contrasted. Little reminder… I screen all my comments first and don’t always get to them right away. I always appreciate your comments! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. This was well thought out and a creative capture on the challenge. The words bring it together. I liked the shift from the mossy rocks to obsidian. You almost caught me on the lizard. Blends right in. Outstanding post.

    • Thanks, Donna! Yeah, I liked the rocks too. We almost didn’t see the lizard, hiding in plain sight at one of our favorite rock collecting sites. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. What a perfect response to this challenge theme! You’re so right about the amazing contrasts to be found in nature ๐Ÿ˜€ I especially love the shot of Tumalo Falls, looks like a stunning place!
