Cosmic Photo Challenge

Dale and K’lee’s Cosmic Photo Challenge theme of this Halloween week is Glass. Visit their sites to see their shiny contributions, and you’ll see some very glassy sights.

Here are mine.

Cosmic Photo Challenge

Check out K’lee’s and Dale’s entries in the Cosmic Photo Challenge, and learn how to play along. With a theme like Man’s Best Friend (K’lee’s choice for this week), you’d expect a gallery of dogs at their most lovable and disarming, right? Maybe like this?

Guest Host Lignum Draco suggested  Water for this week’s theme.

I found no rule against using a previously published photo here, so here it is again — unless you’ve never seen it before, then it’s brand new! 

San Diego, California in the USofA, is located in a coastal desert. Authorities claim we’ve averaged 10.34″ of rainfall a year over the last 30 years, but I suspect they round up to the next inch every time they measure — real glass-half-full kinds of folks.)

Every now and then, we do get enough rain to saturate the clay-infused ground and create some splash-worthy puddles. Some last a few days. That’s what I found a couple days after one of last winter’s storms, with the wind at a complete standstill.

I do love my iPhone camera — convenient and always ready.

(Full disclosure. I previously posted this image in response to the prompt, “Water”, for Dale and K’lee’s highly interpretive Cosmic Photo Challenge.)

Dale and Klee’s Cosmic Photo Challenge — oh, how I’ve missed you! Nature is just beginning to anticipate her chance to rest and recuperate from months of riotous revels reaching up to life-giving sun. To help her celebrate, Dale decided this week’s theme is The Trees. You can see Dale’s entries there, K’lee’s entries here, and how to play along on both sites.

Living in southern California, we see little of the deciduous glory so much of the world experiences. But we do have the liquid amber (Liquidambar styraciflua), commonly called the American sweetgum.
