Weekly Winners: September 20-26

This week, I traveled far, far away -- to an exotic location, in fact, where I shot some amazing waterfalls and lush mountainsides.

Beautiful, isn't it? Oh wait. I lied. This was not Hawaii at all, but a disaster from down the street. If you look carefully at the photo below, it's actually down the street from me, where a broken water main took down a part of the greenbelt. The wall is a normal-sized backyard wall ...

And here is what it looked like at streetside. Fortunately, Wonderhubby came to the rescue and turned off the water. But not before this happened:


For a little more beauty, however, we offer this lovely, dew-sprinkled flower from my yard:


And a little more sprinkles ...


And what would weekly winners at the Planet house be if there weren't cheer photos to share.

Ponytail swish:

Neither of these are my kid, but I love the action of it

How high the sky ...


Now go -->here<-- to Lotus' house to see more Weekly Winners!

love the water fall; and yes the action shots too :)

I think we all did water drops on leaves this week ;-) but I think yours turned out a little better than mine! I'm still trying to figure out the camera! Love the action shots from the cheering too! That last one hurts me :-)

Wow, what a mess in the yard. As a homeowner in charge of my own landscaping (read: we don't have a gardner) I can only think "who's responsible for fixing that mess?"

That first shot really looks like a waterfall. What a mess though! Love the water drops.

The first shot is lovely, amazing how that perspective changes as you see the whole picture. Love the cheer shots too, great capture on the jump.

wild iris? Oh, the flower, not that cute little cheerleader

That is quite a waterfall!

Wow, that is funny how it totally looked like a mountainside until you mentioned what it really was.
You take some dynamite action shots!

Siobhan said...

Great shots as always, Janet. It's true what others have said about perspective. Amazing when you see the whole picture how it tuns out to be something else entirely. I know, that's quite deep for me for a Monday.

I seriously think Roo-girl has wings!

So sorry to hear about the water main break.

I love those first pictures, and if you hadn't explained them, I totally wouldn't have guessed that. Great pictures!
