Sunday Stills: Go Low Looking High

Had a wonderful opportunity on Wednesday to take a shot from the Llano River looking up at sandstone bluffs, but not having a waterproof camera case and already slipping around trying to cross the river on foot I just didn't want to chance it. We all know I already had to bake my camera last year to get the moisture out and I didn't want to make a regular habit of it! As it was I took the camera with me on the kayak enveloped in three ziplock baggies. You can check those panoramic photos out in my previous blog post.

Purple Coneflowers at sunrise this morning

Looking through the patio table (too bad I didn't think to clean it first!)

Looking up through the Speckled Siberian tomatoes

 View from our outdoor shower

Awwww Man I wanna outdoor shower, how cool is that! Beautiful pics. I really love the 1st one :)

Yeah, me too. I want an outdoor shower. Good shots! Never heard of a speckled tomato.

Michelle said...

I love that you didn't clean the table - it just adds to the unique perspective. Great shots!

Brenda said...

great shots! I love the patio table look, and I can't tell that it needs cleaned. I love the photos where you look up through flowers.

Like your table shot, different perspective. I'd love to have an outdoor shower, ummmm, yes. I'll have to look into that. Used one in Florida years ago and loved it.

Great shots - love the outdoor shower.

Geez, my cone flowers are just beginning to peek their lovely leaves out of the ground. Can't believe we are that far behind but then our weather has been just gross so I guess it makes sense.

I especially like the shot with the tomatoes. You were really creative with this challenge! :)

Shirley said...

Definitely creative. I love an outdoor shower; we used one last year when we had to camp for a month.

Very clever photos all! I love the coneflowers the best, but I am so wanting to take a shower outdoors now!
Do you know back before we had kids, my hubby and I had booked a place in Hawaii, JUST because it had an outdoor shower in a tropical garden. We dreamt about picking fruit while we showered underneath lush green trpoical plants.
lol!

And look at you with your outdoor shower in Texas of all places. hehe!

Do you have to clean out the buggies, spiders and frogs before you get in, though? Or do you mind just showering together?

I like your patio table. I imagine you lie on one of those things that garage mechanic repair man has, and roll yourself under the table, and slide out easily. Otheriwse, ouch! someone help me up. LOL

Ann said...

heheheh, I like your outdoor shower. My kids go to the beach full of sand and they leave behind too much sand.

This can also be a scene for the CBS Survivor.

Ed said...

Great shots, the coneflower shot is exceptional..:-)

Jill said...

Great shots!

A different perspective is refreshing! I like the view through the patio table but the outdoor shower is enticing.


As you can see from my recent blogs, I love Coneflowers to excess.

The photo of the Purple Coneflowers at sunrise is absolutely beautiful. Print and frame! :)
