JANE’s Images & Thoughts 🌲 Inspired by the Pacific Northwest & places I wander

  • Beach Combing | Opposites

    Beach Combing | Opposites

    Most of the time beachcombing involves looking for small treasures that wash up along the shore. However… that was not the case during this little jaunt to the beach. I was searching on a much grander scale for things that were totally different from or the reverse of something else. The following images reveal the outcome of my search for concepts that demonstrate this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge… Opposites. Thank…

  • Low-light … detours

    Low-light … detours

    I missed the shot I wanted.* It was moments after sunset, and the light was all wrong for the long zoom lens on my camera.

I love the beautiful surprises Nature gives without a moment’s notice… don’t you?

  • Nature’s Cathedral

    Nature’s Cathedral

    Here I am… awestruck… consumed in the power and the glory of God. I believe in the omniscient force who understands the processes and cycles of the universe… Nature I feel no greater solace than when I place my faith in Her. Nature’s churches are not difficult to find… Standing under a rainbow arch, Kneeling beside a stream, Sitting under a canopy of trees, Walking along a beach, Gazing up…

  • Nature’s Slug Control

    Nature’s Slug Control

    Who would think that a snail could help to control slugs in the garden?It’s a fact! And another good reason to work with Nature and to avoid applying pesticides.  We’ve been led to believe snails eat plants. Right? Not always… Here is a snail species I found in our nature habitat/ garden that is a carnivore. Can you believe that? I was very surprised to learn about the Robust Lancetooth…
