Scavenger Hunt Sunday [3*12*2011]

This past week I was in Colorado Springs on a business trip and therefore my ability to take pictures was pretty non-existent. In fact I had to use my iPhone to capture the pictures that I did get, and I also had to dig into my archives. I know that's cheating a bit but a girls got to do what a girls got to do. I promise to do better with next week's challenge but I just didn't want to miss Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday challenge.

Vanishing Point
Don't you love how the mountain is "vanishing" behind the sunset? The view from my room was breathtaking and I didn't want to pass up a chance to snap a photo even though I had to use my iPhone - not too bad.

Square Crop
I dug out a photo from our trip to St. Lucia in October and I thought this flower would look perfect as a square. Not as creative as I would like but what's a girl to do.

Under
Saturday was my niece's 4th birthday and we went bowling. I just loved my husband's "under"hand technique. Yes, lame again but I wanted to capture at least one shot from the party for the challenge.

Welcome to the Jungle
or the rain forest.........Another capture from our trip to St. Lucia. I just loved the foliage there. 

Calm
I took quite a few shots last week for the book prompt but I decided to use this shot this week instead. Nothing says "calm" like a bible reading does. This was the first Bible I received and it was from my Grandma which makes this extra special to me. I will treasure it forever.

I had thought of bible for my calm aswell but in the end didn't get time to take the shot. You've captured some great scenes with that camera and your archive shots are great too especially of that protea.
