Lucious Lemon

Lucious Lemon, originally uploaded by Random Things (Jen C.).

Our Citrus is ripe here in California! Everywhere you go tree's are loaded and heavy with citrus. Good thing we planted dwarf trees. We have a lot of fruit! Next to the lemon tree sits a blood orange tree, a grapefruit tree, and a clementine tree. We had a lime tree but it died with our frosts last winter.

The scent of the citrus I picked this morning is heavenly!

Moonlight over the Bay

This beautiful moon shone big and bright over Monterey Bay California. I screamed "Pull over!" And ran out to get a few shots. I liked this one best with the lights twinkling.

I wanted to capture the warm sun glinting through the flags, and I was able to get a bit of sun flare here. I was pleased with this as it was just what I wanted. WDW, Animal Kingdom, Asia.

This stopped me in my tracks! We were finished with our "Behind the Seeds Tour" at Epcot, and were on our way to The Food and Wine Festival to eat and drink our way back to The Boardwalk, where we were staying. I saw the evening sun on the Imagination Pavillion...and stopped to snap a pic.

Towering Tall

Our family visited The Muir Woods National Monument. It is a California treasure. As we walked along the paths the forest was so peaceful. When alone we could feel the deep quiet in our bones! One of my favorite spots in our beautiful State!

Castello Di Amarosa

We spent a day in Napa at the end of June, before the birth of our 3rd child arrives! This was my favorite picture of the day. My husband did not wine taste here, and we did not tour the Castle, but the grounds were very beautiful.

On Flickr I am in a group called Disney Photo Challenge. There are many challenges to enter your photography, on a variety of subjects. This photo "Submarine" is the very first photo of mine to have won a challenge! (And I have entered many, and won second place before..)The challenge was "Water Rides". So I was thrilled to see my photo chosen the winner!
Only winners can enter photos into the pool. Here is the link to the pool.
I am just a little excited to have one of mine there!
