Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

The WordPress Photo Challenge this week asks that we post a picture of a sign and explain why we chose it.

I had a different photograph in mind when I went searching through my files, but I’ll save that one for another time.

This picture, taken near the Okefenokee Swamp a couple of years ago, isn’t very good, technically. But when I stumbled across it, I saw it differently. I saw those words with the brilliant sunlight and that clear blue sky and the trees as backdrop.

I don’t think I need to say any more.

Photo Challenge: Illumination

Late yesterday afternoon, after a day of heavy rain and wind and storms, the skies finally cleared. Out my kitchen window, I watched the clouds scudding by, still wind-driven, and the glow of sunset through the bare trees. I couldn’t resist. I went outside to take a few shots.

This morning, the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge appeared in my mailbox. The theme? Illumination!

So here’s a photo of a winter sunset, Mississippi style, after a day of turbulent weather.
