FOL14 - Week 11 - Beauty All Around

It's week 11 for the Focus on Life 2014 Weekly Photography Challenge and Sally over at The Studio Sublime has given us the theme of

"Checking Out" for the month of March.
This week's prompt is:

Beauty All Around
You've all seen the sunrises and sunsets I've been posting lately, which would have been super for this week's prompt, but I'll spare you yet another one!
I was out walking in the neighborhood keeping a keen eye out for something to photograph that would embrace this prompt.
This was some of the
beauty I found all around.

Pretty flowers outside our subdivision

And, even more.

Beautiful Bougainvilleas

Okay - so I couldn't resist.
Here's another sunset.

Friday Night's Sunset Over the Big Lake
(sorry I couldn't make it bigger w/out it running off the page!)

And here's a duck landing on the water, too!


Please go check out the "Beauty All Around" that everyone else found this week, won't you?
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Beauty All Around!


  1. All the photos are just stunning!!! Love those petunias! And you just can't go wrong with a sunset...ever!

  2. Wow those flowers are just lovely. It's not warm enough here for anything to bloom yet.
    Your sunset photo is gorgeous!

  3. Flowers I am so Jealous! And another gorgeous sunset!

  4. The flowers are beautiful and I can't wait to see them here! I'm glad you included the sunset and the video of the duck landing on the water! It made me happy this morning :)

  5. beautiful photos, but I totally giggled with your obsession for sunsets!

  6. Flowers! colourful flowers! they still exists outside vases and pots :) Thanks for sharing them, it brings some hope. Your sunset is absolutely stunning.

  7. Your shots are lovely. I was thinking of trying for some shots of flowers, but I would have had to get them at the store!

  8. Colors, flowers, sunsets! How beautiful! I wish I had a little bit of those!

  9. Gorgeous photos - the flowers are so bright and beautiful, and I love the sunsets - they are totally stunning.

  10. It was lovely to be greeted by such glorious blooms. Followed by a glorious sunset of course!

  11. Love those bougainvilleas -- the colors seem to shout for joy! I was wondering about the water. Is that a lake or are you on a golf course? Whatever it is sure makes for some amazing reflections. Beautiful photos!

    1. The lakes, not a golf course. There's several of them in my neighborhood - it's really nice to have the water close by. Even if it's full of duck-poo! LOL!!
