I heard this Pileated Woodpecker before I saw him. His drumming was loud enough to draw my attention even indoors with the doors and windows closed. He was across the street near the woods and this photo was taken through the window so I wouldn't disturb him. I sometimes hear him calling from the woods, but this was the first chance I had to actually see him.
The moon rising over the farm we lived on - the sky almost looks like water, with the clouds at the top of the mountains looking like surf, and even the air seemed blue that night. It was a magical night - the planet just above the moon showing up so brightly
This little donkey is one of my all-time favorite photos. Taken in N. CA, she almost looks like an angel with the silver light reflecting off her back. We stood and talked for a long time, she seemed very interested in talking that day.
This cave appeared as we rounded a corner on a curvy country road. The brown above the mouth of the cave almost shone in the sunlight, with the nice contrast of the dark entrance. This photo could be for every element except red for fire. We see the (2) blue in the grasses on the left for water, (3) silver grasses on the far left for metal, (4) brown for earth and tiny yellow flowers, and (5) green in the ferns hanging from the ceiling for wood. Using our imagination we can almost see red at the top of the cave - almost.
5. Wood (green)
A funky old car in a farmer's field. We stopped at the barn for a yard sale and when we were parked we were right in front of this lovely old relic. The tree sprouting is an Elderberry, just finding a place to thrive.
I hope you enjoyed your travels with me on my scavenger hunt.
