In the Pink!
In photography, depth of field (DOF), also called focus range, is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image.

A snowy walk on a Winter day
Only the geese are going my way
The silence is deafening; the snow is deep
Creatures who scurry have fallen asleep
Twigs on the branches are brittle and bare
The soul of next Spring is buried somewhere
I love the beauty; the freedom to roam
Now snow-covered boots are walking me home
Beautiful Sedona, Arizona is often referred to as Red Rock Country
The sandstone formations glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. As multi-hued rocks jut upward from the desert floor, they appear to be reaching for the sky. Sedona is popular for its history, nature, archaeology, art and for the many gorgeous scenic drives that can be taken from there.
Today washed away
like sand beneath my feet
when waves roll out to sea.
I’m lead by breezes
toward the midnight hour
where the silence of night
allows me to dream;
then dreams like a river flow…
a river that seeks the sea…
a sea that returns me to shore…
where the day washes away
like sand beneath my feet.
Time drifts on.

Pretty trees “light the night” at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. (for Nancy Merrill Photography’s weekly challenge)
Once a week for several years now, I have looked forward to the weekly photo challenge hosted by the Daily Post at Word Press. Their weekly theme prompts me to view my collection of photos with a new eye as I try to find what I think best represents the challenge. Sadly, this is the last week of a challenge which has been a constant source of inspiration for me. It’s not that I can’t come up with photos on my own (and I will!), but it’s been such a delight to see how others interrupt the same prompt. Their response usually puts forth a new and different way of looking at things, not to mention some pretty amazing photography and wonderful new blogs to follow! I shall miss it! In this final week, we have been asked to share one of our All-Time Favorites.
I don’t know what it is about this photo—perhaps the colors, the toes, the wisp of hair across her face, or maybe the innocence—but it will forever be one of my all-time favorites!
