Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #160 – Your Inspiration

Our host Patti has challenged us to show what our inspiration looks like. I find my inspiration in the natural world.

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.

Starting the day by watching the sun rise adds inspiration to any day.

The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration.

The natural beauty found in America’s National Parks never ceases to inspire me.

If you truly love nature you will find beauty everywhere.

The weekly challenges from the gifted lens-artists hosts Tina, Ann-Christine, Patti and Amy always inspire me to be a better photographer. I’m also inspired by all of the talented WordPress bloggers who respond to the challenge with their wonderful photographs.

Many thanks to Patti for this challenge. Be sure to visit her original post at Lens-Artists challenge #160: Your Inspiration.

  1. National Parks are always favorites of mine. I’ve visited the Grand Canyon, Redwoods, and Yosemite numerous times. In fact the Redwoods are a couple of hours from my house. Also enjoyed your sunflowers. Ours are blooming now. 🙂 Fun photos! –Curt

    1. Judy, they are my favorites, too! My Mexican Sunflowers are growing like crazy and crowding out some of the other flowers. I hate to pull any up because the butterflies and hummingbirds love them.

  2. Beautiful choices Beth – I agree wholeheartedly with the inspiration that is found in nature’s beauty. The National parks offer us the best of Mother Nature’s efforts, don’t you think?! You’ve captured them beautifully.
