Photo Challenge – Serene

The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge is – Serene.


It has been a busy weekend and I certainly could use some serenity. These photos I took in PEI (Prince Edward Island) about 5 1/2 years ago are pretty serene.



Photo Challenge – Tansformation


This past summer my husband and I took a trip to Newfoundland. It was the first time we’d been to this east coast province and hopefully it won’t be our last. Never had we been somewhere where the scenery transforms before your eyes. Every turn of the road showed us amazing views from pine tree forests to barren landscapes, lakes and streams to ocean vistas. This place was remarkable and we only traveled a very small portion of the Island the Avalon Peninsula.

I was told by a friend before our trip that the landscapes of Newfoundland were like that of all of Canada on one Island. She was right.






The Daily Post – Photo Challenge – Experimental



A few years ago, before my first book Promised Soul was published, I posted it on Wattpad. It is a great site to get feedback on your writing.

When you post a story on Wattpad you also have to post a book cover. You can use some of their templates or post your own. I decided to design my own and so experimented with a few different book cover designs.

I don’t remember which one was my first idea or my last so the following pictures are in no particular order.

When it comes to being creative, I love experimenting.

Photo Challenge – Temporary

Since I’m just too tired to write something for the The Daily Post word prompt I thought I would do the Photo Challenge prompt instead.  The prompt is to post a picture depicting the word Temporary. When you think about it in the grand scheme of things, just about everything is temporary.


Ice is pretty temporary. As destructive as ice storms can be, the coating of ice left behind is quite beautiful. These pictures were taken after an ice storm in 2013.



Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter E

This week’s challenge – photos that have two Es in the topic word.

I should mention that most of these photos are taken with my cellphone as I don’t actually have a camera. Well I do but it’s completely manual. It was great when I didn’t wear glasses, plus it’s a 35 mm film camera. Anyway, some day I do intend to buy a good camera but for now will use my cellphone or borrow someone else’s camera like I did when I went on vacation this past summer.

Anyway, here are my choices for pics with two Es.


Deer in the trees


Freezing pine needles


A pair of Canada geese and a couple of swans.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – The Letter D

This week is Letter D – 4 letters words that start with D.

One of the best things about these photo challenges is that I get to peruse through old pics and reminisce as I look for suitable photographs.

Drink of the fancy kind

Dragonfly – my favourite insect

Daisies of the Gerber variety

Drooping trees after an ice storm (2013)

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – The letter C

This is my first post for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Some of these photos were taken a few years ago and some are recent. Without further ado here are my picks of pics that start with the letter C and are at least four letters long.

Chicken Coop

I took this photo of an old chicken coop on our property after an ice storm back in 2013.


Crocuses – I love this first sign of spring.


Cooler full of Capelin

Capelin – I had never heard of these fish until my trip to Newfoundland this summer. Because of these, we got to see a lot of whales from the shore as they dined on spawning capelin.
