Last on the Card April 2021

Last Photo for April 2021

How wonderful to have thirty-nine people show us their last photos for March. I do feel honoured that this photo challenge, which initially was going to be a one off, is growing. Thank you to everyone who contributes their good and not so good photos. Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the three devices I use to take photos.

So let’s see what you have for April 2021

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th April.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo”

Here’s mine

A journey in water

Sunday Stills: #Water in the Details

My second contribution for water in the details.

The shapes and colours at the waters edge

The floods that inundate the nearby town

The water rages over the bridge near my place during flood times

The Bottlebrush trees bend with the flow and are used to the rushing water

As the water rushes downstream to be greeted by the bridge

Grafton Bridge over the Clarence River

The sunset on the waves change the water to unfamiliar colours

Water drops on flowers trickle down the stamens to feed the roots below

Or burst from a fountain in a showy splendor

Or sit on a succulent silently sliding

Reflecting the background while waiting to fall

Being captured by a spiders web like pearls awaiting to adorn a womans neck

Giving a glimpse of the world in a raindrop

Watching a White-faced Heron stroll among the rivers rocks looking for lunch can be mesmerising and calming beside the river

Sky show

The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Glimpse

Early morning
awake
sunrise colours
the sky
Through trees
streaks
of colour
but what
a glimpse
see it
yes
our moon
being chased
across
the sky
early morning.

Outside
before bed
dark sky
bathed in
clouds
Impending rain
trees sway
a glimpse
light
clouds
hint colour
our moon
strong
sends love
before bed
outside.
