Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #140 – A Change of Scenery

I have the honor of hosting this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge. If you are able to do so, we are challenging you to get out and look for a change of scenery. You don’t have to go far from home. It can be in your neighborhood, town, or even a car ride away. Maybe there is a nearby park you haven’t been to in a while, or maybe you’ve been wanting to try a different route on your walk, run, or bike ride. If you are unable to get out right now, we’d love for you to browse through your archives to feature images from places you have visited in the past when you needed a change of scenery.

It’s been a long time since we have gone anywhere so my husband and I took off last week for a short road trip. Three nights in a small town on the Gulf Coast of Florida was just what we needed to recharge our batteries. Morning walks, nature trails, lots of birds, watching the sunset, and fresh delicious seafood were just what the doctor ordered.

Thank you to everyone who participated in Tina’s Special Moments challenge last week. It was a joy to see so many special moments and read the incredible stories that went along with the images.

Many thanks to Tina, Ann-Christine, Patti and Amy for inviting me be be your host this week. I’m looking forward to seeing all of your responses!

  1. Beth, thank you for sharing your wonderful trip. We all need to get out, and it looks like the two of you had a glorious time. Your pelican is beautiful. I know what you mean about birds in your area. Both in CA and here in AZ, we have vey boring-looking birds. I can’t even see my road runner posing on the dirt and rocks beside the trail. We moved in November, so our whole life is an adventure here in Prescott and surrounding AZ scenery. I look forward to having a post later this week.

  2. Your getaway sounds perfect. The west coast of Florida has such a different feel from our side of the state. Love the sunsets you enjoyed on the gulf side.

  3. Love the pelican waiting patiently for food 😃 I know I’m late for your challenge (my day job got in the way ðŸ˜Đ), but I’m linking back to it from the current week, if that makes any sense ðŸĪŠ
