Cee’s Fun Foto: Sense of Smell

Some scents make us feel warm and nostalgic. I love the smell of vanilla, apple spice or pumpkin spice candles, it reminds me of fall, my favorite season. 10.2 sense of smell

Other time a smell may just be repulsive. Like the 50-mile crater area at Yellowstone National Park. The smell of sulfur is quite unpleasant.

Cee’s Fun Foto: Sence of Hearing

Silence speaks loudly for those who dare to listen

There are many things that amaze me about deserts but sound, or should I say lack of sound, amazed me the most. The deafening peace of deserts will suck all life’s anxieties right out. There is so little to hear that any sound you hear is amplified greatly. The caw of a vulture, whistling winds or howling coyotes sound as if they were right with you though far away.

One Word Photo Challenge: Wildfire

This photo was taken on my second trip to Grand Teton National Park. After four months of travel I couldn’t wait to see those shooting peaks that changed my geographic focus. But when I got there I could barely see them from the smoke of a wildfire. I was so disappointed but the colors of sunset brightened my outlook. Without the smoke this sunset would have been much different.

One Word Photo Challenge: Drought

Drought: lack of rain. Some areas go so long with out rain even rivers dry up. But once it does rain look out, thus the pole with feet marked so you know if you can drive through. It gives a whole new meaning to flash flood.
