I was heading up north on I15 to see my Mom and family with my oldest daughter and we saw that the Young Living Lavender farm was in bloom. We are always up for an adventure when roadtripping, especially because we get so bored in the car!  We pulled off the highway to go check it out.  We found a good area and got right down in the dirt. We took in the smell of lavender and of course took pictures 🙂 Where did you adventure to this summer ?

We were visiting Laguna beach area for the first time and fell In love with it. As we were walking down to the art studio where my daughter just recently got to put her art we passed this house. It makes my heart sing to see Porches pots, and succulents, oh my ! I love quaint cozy spaces and color !  I see why artist love it there, my creative juices ran wild. I love my #Cannon but I wanted to travel light this time so I used my #Iphone7+  as we walked some of the paths I paused to take pictures of the succulent and flowers. I picked 3 flowers shown in this bottom pic and smashed them in a book turning them into the art project in my previous post. Other than that I promise I left the other flowers to grow and bloom for everyone else to enjoy ! My daughter in heaven by her art at the studio #mysticarts 🙏❤️The big beautiful ocean shots I got that look like a postcard . No editing required . I want to go back to my salty adventure 

A Sea Side Adventure

We walked down the path to the beach again and rather than take my #cannon I took my Iphone along for the convenience of my #Iphone7+ camera. Which I love!  I was focusing in on a picture and my phone died. I about threw myself in the sand and had a tantrum.  I guess the universe decided I wasn’t being present enough. It was a tough time. I missed a large rock with green algae sitting on the beige sand with the big blue sea in the back ground. A sail boat, just a neutral colored sail boat in the distance slowly moving along against the pale blue sky. I missed shots of a wonderful bird, the biggest waves I’ve ever seen at high tide and bunnies, live bunnies, munching on grass on the trail. There was a man singing and playing his guitar to a small group. Telling this story will help me remember. I took a zillion pictures overall. I captured the sun going down over the ocean our first night along with Mike’s first time ever to play in ocean 💦 water. Over the next few days I captured many flowers 🌺 and succulents with my camera on the trail. I picked a few flowers and pressed them into a book. I captured the waves breaking on the 🌊 beach. I got pictures of the sun setting and pathways, stairs, architecture, birds, sand and sea. A seal named freckles sat on a rock he visits everyday and posed for us. It was a buffet of colors and smells. I ran around on that beach gathering treasures, playing in the waves and climbing stairs till my calves screamed at me in pain. I got pictures of me and my love and pictures of my daughter and her art featured in a #Laguna art studio for the first time. #Proud mom. I savored every minute of it and can’t wait to go back. 

Got a little Tahoe in my soul…

I was sitting at the edge of the water with my feet dug into the sand grounding my self in nature when i turned around and saw that someone had stacked the rocks just for my picture, or so I like to think.

Spring fever in Southern Utah

Here in southern Utah it feels like spring this week. It’s only February but the sun has come out to play for a while so I took my camera and headed to one of my favorite places.  Snow Canyon is like a crayon box to me and a photographers dream. You experience every color there from Deep red to orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. This is what I came up with. Enjoy!

This area down by the base of the massive rock walls has a nice cool temperature. I would imagine this was a nice area for the pioneers and or the indians to rest and cool off. It is near where the Pioneers that settled the area wrote their names on the rock walls with wagon wheel grease. The one massive wall is covered with bits of moss and runs up against another deep red wall. There were rock climbers scaling the wall nearby.

Peace in the desert…I loved the tree…

Lake Tahoe

IMG_7991A crisp and cool fall day with the sun breaking through the pine trees in lake Tahoe . It is a spectacular sight to capture as Fall makes way for winter. We went around the entire lake in a day and enjoyed the sights, stopping at a fun place for lunch and even got to check out an art gallery and thrift store. There is something for everyone and  I can wait to return.

Be Still and create your own grace. Jenny

I had the pleasure of going to Reno and Lake Tahoe area with my husband so my next few posts will be pics of that wonderful area and our adventures there. I captured this photo in Tahoe just before we lost the sun in the evening.  I was taking pics of the shoreline and the ducks and Mike spotted the canoe in the background which made for a great pic and fun to play with editing. Props to my sidekick!
