The Challenge That Wasn’t.

Since it seems there is no “official” weekly challenge forthcoming from the powers that be at WP, Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack? decided to throw down the gauntlet and present us with one.


Here are a few of mine.

Pink Fragrant Water Lily.

Boathouse, Chocorua Lake.

Masts In The Mist

Memorial Remembered.

(The Memorial Bridge, connecting Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME has recently been torn down and is slated for replacement).

  1. The lily is great! It took me a few seconds to realise that half of it is a reflection! It’s lovely. I also love the misty boats and their masts – it’s so simple and still.

    1. Thank you very much Jude. I love the hot pink ones, most of the ponds around me have plenty of white ones, but this one place has at least as many pink. It’s a popular place with the fishermen, and I think they think I’m nuts. I’m usually in the water, and in this case up to me waste, when I’m photographing them.

  2. Gorgeous, Jeff, all of them! Water lilies are so elegant, aren’t they? The Chorua Lakecolours are stunning and the misty masts are just divine. I love fog. Thanks for joining in the challenge! xxx

        1. That’s good to hear. My photographs are meant to create feelings of joy, wonder, and sometimes awe(being too close to bears;-) ), not cause a medical emergency. Can’t have my audience dropping dead now can I?

            1. That’s a tough call Paula. Obviously I like them all 🙂 If I had to pick one it would have to be the boathouse. But the bridge is right up there if only because I can never take that photograph again. That bridge has been taken down and is being replaced.

  3. Stunners, Jeff. Geez. The rest of us need to just go home now. lol. You clearly won…you are the master!! 🙂

    Well done. They are beautiful, as always!

  4. Wow, Jeff! These are so beautiful!
    I look forward to learning from you.
    Thank you for sharing your talent with those of us who are embarking on this journey of photography.

    1. Thank you Joy.

      As I have told others, never hesitate to ask me a question. I have been fortunate to receive help from several extremely talents photographers as I was learning my craft, I feel it is my duty to return the favor. I find it humbling and a more than a little surprising that someone would actually ask for my help.

      I don’t claim to know everything, and I’m always learning, but what I do know I will share freely. My door is always open!

  5. It would be fun to see New England in blue, or even a car or an airplane 😉 What do you say? I will be posting more Alpine shots in blue 😉

  6. I’ve always wanted to see a water lily in person. It’s on my buscket list. I had no clue they were fragrant. This one looks like it is flaoting with invisible wings.
    Love that one ….. and … the others too – just a little partial to that one. ~~~~ : – )

    1. Thank you Isadora, I have to be honest, I have no idea how fragrant they really are. But that is what they are called. Considering what I’m willing to go through to photograph them you would think I’d at least take a sniff.

      If you are ever in New Hampshire in the summer I will show you all the water lilies you could ever want.

      1. I am insanely busy. I haven’t had time to go shooting in a while, but hopefully I’ll find time soon to update the blog and let everyone know what I’ve been up to. Read you soon!
