“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”
- Robert Frost
I shall never get tired of featuring Nature for iPhoneography Monday. It is easy to get lost in the day-to-day chaos, but it is important to find time to admire the beauty that nature provides us, be it a simple and quick walk around the garden or a full on stroll around the nature park.
I hope you enjoyed today’s iPhoneography post. If you want more, please head over to Sally’s Lens & Pens by Sally; and Polly’s Watching the Photo Reels for their very own version of iPhoneography Monday. And as always, feel free to join the challenge, you can find the mechanics on the iPhoneography Monday page of the blog.
Spring is finally starting to make an appearance around here. I see greener grass on the ground; and trees are beginning to come alive with hints of budding leaves on tiny branches. The land looks well again.
I recently purchased a new toy, a Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 DI VC USD for my 60D. It is a great piece of glass, fast and quiet AF and superb IQ. It did come with a hefty price tag, but still is a much cheaper alternative than its Canon counterpart. It is quite big and heavy though, especially for a small person like me, but it sure feels sturdy. I am hoping to put it in good use this weekend, we’ll see.
Seems that the changing weather and fluctuating temps got the best of me. No matter how careful I am, I picked up a nasty flu virus over the weekend. This put me out of commission since Sunday afternoon, and pretty much rendered me useless for three whole days.
I am so sorry for missing iPhoneography Monday and Texture Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday. Ugh! I am better today though, thank God! Still got the sniffles, but I should be in a much better state very soon. I have a lot of catching up to do, so I am going to start with iPhoneography Monday (Thursday in my case).
This photo was taken last year outside the doors of a restaurant in NY. It was impossible to miss the cheerful colors and lovely blooms that greet you on your way in and bid you farewell on your way out. I think they best represent Nature at its finest.
