Barren

Ever have one of those days where you want to poke the bear with a cattle prod to see if you get a reaction?  That would be my whole week, including this particular photo… 

POKE POKE POKE

Something completely different than what I usually do, taken at White Sands, NM.  I need to go spend more time out there and hopefully, I will get that chance again. 

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!

The Elysian Fields

Happy Wednesday!!  This #lightning  strike is brought to you by one of the #monsoon  storms this year.  :D  I had fun processing this one, with all of the light pollution that Tucson city lights can have and the storm's light itself.  I think all of the colors make it that much more interesting.

I try to remember to title all of my storm shots after various god/goddess mythology.  The Elysian Fields, or the Elysian Plains, the final resting places of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous, evolved from a designation of a place or person struck by lightning, enelysion, enelysios. This could be a reference to Zeus, the god of lightning/Jupiter, so "lightning-struck" could be saying that the person was blessed (struck) by Zeus (/lightning/fortune).

Raindrops Taste Like Tears

Happy #FloralFriday  everyone!!!!!  WOOHOO!  It is time for the weekend!!  

Does anyone have any big weekend plans?  Anything interesting?  What is going on in your world!?  :D

Also… time to play "Guess That Song".  Do you recognize the title and what lyrics it might be from?  (It is one of my most favorite bands… LOL!)

#FloralFriday  is curated by myself, +Eustace James, +Beth Akerman, and +Kiki Nelson!  Though I haven't been around much, I am trying (slowly) to get back into the swing of things.
