Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands...Psalms 102:25

I very much love nature and just getting out and doing a self portrait certainly requires active involvement ...I set the timer for 10 seconds and I run into place...I am just delighted I can still do this at my age of 67 years old without falling flat on my face...LOL.. It is good exercise.

This is a picture of our flowering crab apple tree on our property, Yesterday we had a rain and wind storm that blew some of the blossoms off the tree. There were tornadoes very close to us.... Before I even knew about this theme, I wanted to do a self portrait with the tree this morning before our next wind storm. It was overcast lighting which I think is the best kind of lighting for self portraits and nature shots.

Thank you Donald Garrett for the spotlight.

    The lighting is wonderful! It gets rid of shadows and makes colors pop. This is a beautiful Self portrait and entry. SPs do give you quiet the workout.
