violent storm clouds tumbling in the sky

The A-Z Challenge is almost at the end of the alphabet, the most exciting letters to find images for. Here is my entry for V, a photo of storm clouds racing through the sky, black and white tumbling together just before rain and hail hit.

Pop over to Frizztext’s Flickrcomments to join in this week’s challenge and check out the other V entries.

Sunday Post: Nature

In this week’s Sunday Post Jake explains that Nature  “is often taken to mean the “natural environment” or wilderness–wild animals, rocks, forest, beaches, and in general those things that have not been substantially altered by human intervention, or which persist despite human intervention.” Here is my entry, the natural environment, unchanged by man, as far as we can see on the surface.

Water lies on the sand, reflecting the clouds above, in the afternoon light of the sun … all four elements with space making up the natural world of which we are a part. Keeping these elements in balance in our lives is the key to health and well-being. By understanding and cherishing the natural world we take care of ourselves and our planet.
