Friday Photo: Ebb and Flow

with 2 comments

Stormy water hits a calm beach.

Nature is about balance; the coming and going, the ebb and flow.

This got me thinking about the ebb and flow of opportunities for risk that come and go every single day.

Every. Single. Day.

We are inundated with opportunities. The question is what we do with them.

It’s this simple: If I never try anything, I never learn anything. If I never take a risk, I stay where I am. If I go ahead and do it, that affects how much I continue wanting to do it. When I hold myself back, I trade appearances for the opportunity to find out what I am like. – Hugh Prather

It’s been quiet on the blog recently. That’s because there’s been a whole lot of stuff going on at Under Solen and I’ve been feeling a bit swamped… in a good way. But next week I’ll be back in action. Until then, enjoy this photo of my favorite place of solace on a winter afternoon.

Friday Photo: Water Droplets

leave a comment »

I have a thing for taken photos of water droplets on leaves. When I visit my parents’ house, I’m known to do a morning photo tour of the garden just so I can get the last of the dew, or if I’m lucky, the leftovers of overnight rain. It’s always so beautiful.

Stormy Coastal Weekend

with 2 comments

stormy coastal weekend 21

Spent a girls’ weekend out at Rockaway Beach, Oregon and we were lucky enough to be caught right in the middle of an epic Oregon autumn storm. The waves were enormous and fluffy mounds of sea foam covered the shore. Ocean spray rose high in the air above the crashing water, reminding us of just how powerful nature can be. Plus I got to borrow a Nikon D80 for the trip which always makes me happy.

Friday Photo: Saint Mary Falls

I love this photo taken at one of the falls not far from Saint Mary Lake in Glacier National Park last weekend. An excellent trip, especially since most of the park attractions were shut down for the season and we practically had the park to ourselves. Definitely a great time of year to go visit.

Vote for Water

with 2 comments

Doesn’t matter who you’re voting for, you still need to give up that bottled water addiction. At least that’s the stance Tappening takes. Because America uses 17 million barrels of crude oil a year just to make disposable plastic water bottles, the ad campaign advocates drinking tap water and getting the issue of bottled water on the political agenda.That’s a good thing considering how many of those plastic bottles end up in landfills, the ocean and beyond. Consider that next time you go to pull a bottle off the shelf.

Find out more about Tappening here and check out more of their ads here.
