Photo a Week – Shimmer

Nancy Merrill is hosting a photo challenge. The theme this week – Shimmer

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) THAT SHIMMER.

 

Once again I am able to share a photo from my favorite beach. Taken during a solo vacation many years ago. Where I enjoyed warm weather, sunshine and long walks along the water’s edge. No schedule except for one of my choosing…including photo opportunities I couldn’t resist.
Sparkly sand. Sun. Water. Waves.

A more recent walk…not so warm. Early Spring in New England.

The late afternoon sun still doing its amazing thing…

A Photo a Week Challenge: Water

Nancy Merrill Photography is hosting a photo challenge:

 

The theme this week is water.

I have two photos to contribute.

Did you know that summer squash is 94% water?
Even though it (and its cousin the zucchini) overtake local gardens by the end of the summer, I still enjoy these summer vegetables over and over. Sliced, chopped, steamed, roasted…and in a cheese casserole if so inspired.

…from summer
to winter…

 

One February morning, I raised the shade and found this…
