Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 136: Subjects starting with the Letter “S”

So…..  In a month characterized by a nationwide Snow Storm, that left Streets Slippery with Snow and ice, where do we begin?

How about with a triple-S photo:  Song Sparrow in the Snow, taken just last week.

And how about his Snow-buddy, our Squirrel?

From a prior year, a Snowy Street, right in front of our house.  It looks black-and-white, but that photo is in color.

I have always loved the Seashore.  Here are my favorites, on opposite coasts of the United States.

Straits of Juan De Fuca, on the coast of Washington State, the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge:

And at Cape May, New Jersey.

The Skagit River and Skagit Valley are about a half-hour north of our house.  Swans!

One of our favorite local spots is Snoqualmie Falls, on the Snoqualmie River.  Top photo is in the autumn, bottom photo in the Spring.

  1. Quite a selection indeed! As a former Jersey girl I must say I’d not seen a photo like yours before which really emphasizes the Shape of the Shoreline – that’s really well done. Also really loved your Snowy Scenes.
