We are on the final countdown. These are our last few weeks living in the desert. Our last few weeks putting up with stupid hot temperatures (and boy are they stupid, forecast to reach 118F next week). Our last few weeks with a swimming pool. Our last few weeks needing a swimming pool! So what […]

    118?!? I would live in the pool all summer long. These images are STUNNING!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah

    Goodness these images ❤️❤️❤️! I love every water droplet and reflection as they soak up the joy of childhood in the summer! Beautifully captured! Can’t wait to see those ski pictures!ReplyCancel

  • Ceri these are awesom and I know I would need a pool with 118 F temps – that is just crazy – I hate the Florida heat and we never get that high. That pool looks so inviting. I wish you the very best on your new adventure.ReplyCancel

    Absolutely wonderful series that has such movement and joy! The viewer can truly FEEL through the way you used your talents to capture such a special part of your lives there. Blessings as you transition to the East Coast (promise, you’ll swim here too!) :) <3ReplyCancel

Let me tell you about one of the stark differences between the UK and the Sonoran Desert. Apart from the obvious (the weather). This has been our third spring in the valley, and each and every time spring rolled around I have been astounded by the vast array of colour. As an outsider I imagined the […]

  • Wow these are beautiful Ceri. I love the mountain image with all the flowers at the base – that is just gorgeous. Make me a little envious to be truthful. I would love to see mountains again :) I love the narrow depth of field images as well. Beautiful share thank youReplyCancel

  • Sarah

    I love that your images always take me places that I’ve never been. Living in Florida, I don’t see the same vegetation, so I’m always so drawn to your nature pictures (so much of the time, it’s the first time ever seeing the plant). Loved your post and those beautiful purple flowers!ReplyCancel

  • Absolutely amazing. I was lucky enough to live in the desert and the colours are truly different and quite incredible.ReplyCancel

  • Liz

    Oh, what beauty and depth these images have, Ceri. And what a bigger reflection of life: that no matter what “desert” we may find ourselves in, there is always light and color and hope. <3 Gorgeous!ReplyCancel

    i’m so jealous! i would love to see this in person. i’m with sharleen. the mountains in the background of the flowers…just gorgeous!!!ReplyCancel

  • Ceri!! These captures are absolutely gorgeous. I love all of the variations of the beautiful flowers and colors that you captured. That first image with the soft purple bokeh though…wow! I don’t have any one favorite, but that one did make my jaw drop!ReplyCancel

Oooh it’s colour inspiration blog time! I love how these themes make me think more about what I shoot and also make me share things I might not otherwise be driven to put “out there.” This time however I’m sharing images that I planned to blog all along, not necessarily as part of a blog […]

    I visited here when I was a child but have no photos, great pictures Ceri!ReplyCancel

I had a plan for this month’s installment of the Artists Inspired blog circle. A clear and concise plan. 10 days before publishing the blog we would be travelling to Texas for Spring Break (which happily coincides with my birthday each year) and I was bound to find lots of {green} there. Surely! …except I […]

    Ceri! These images are beautiful!ReplyCancel

  • Lol I visualize Texas as brown around now. I am so glad that you got to see new life as you got home. I love your share on green. I especially love the image with the tiny orange flowers with the narrow depth of field. You have taken what we see as ordinary and made them beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • i love that juxtaposition of the cactus and flower! very cool. so sad we missed you in TX.ReplyCancel

    • I’m sad too! I’ll see you in Atlanta though, I’m sure of it!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah

    Well, I can’t wait for the {orange} blog! However, I loved your {green} blog!! You are so talented! My goodness, that one picture with the white flowers is so very pretty!ReplyCancel

    • I’m an idiot, right?! I didn’t even find much orange, haha! Thank you so much!ReplyCancel

  • Emilee

    What beautiful photos! I especially love that little clump of grass in the gorgeous colored earth!ReplyCancel

  • My love for green grows stronger as I go around this circle. Fantastic share Ceri :)ReplyCancel

    • I have such a love hate relationship with green, but the circle sure does help improve my opinion! Thanks Channon <3ReplyCancel

  • Liz

    Oh, Ceri, you never disappoint! I love how you sought and found your GREEN in the desert. Simply beautiful!ReplyCancel

    • Thank you, Liz. The timing was pretty perfect. But alas it won’t last long now temperatures are consistently in the 90s!ReplyCancel

  • Nikki

    These are amazing! I can hardly believe that this is the same desert you usually photograph in!ReplyCancel

{Grey} (or {Gray} if you’re American)… I will admit, this month’s colour had me completely stumped. Unless I really go hunting there is nothing grey here, just the desert. So if it is not here right in front of my eyes, what is it fundamentally? Grey is black and white. I almost said “merely black […]

  • These images are awesome and the fun that your two boys have shared in here tugs at my heart, but the image of your two boys hugging each other has me totally melting. I love your share this month.ReplyCancel

  • you killed it! keep doing them, they’re gorgeous!ReplyCancel

  • Brandi Geoghagan

    Fantastic texture!! These are beautiful and I’m so glad you experimented :)ReplyCancel

  • Liz Willson

    Oh my goodness, YES! You knocked this out of the park! I’d love to hear how you chose to edit these. They are so rich in not only texture, but movement and connection. You transported me to the desert with you and your sweet family. I continue to admire how you see and capture the world and how you are always pushing yourself to see in a new way and try new things – awesome inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • Yes, yes, yes!! Ceri, I absolutely love this conversion to black and white, as I see so much depth in them! I love your work in color, but you know I love a good black and white, and these are fantastic! So glad to see you step out of your shell and try this…I hope to see more! So beautiful and inspiring, sweet friend!ReplyCancel

  • Emilee Patrishkoff

    Wowza! These are amazing!ReplyCancel

  • Nikki S.

    The desert in grey is GORGEOUS!!! So beautiful!ReplyCancel

  • Like you, I rarely visualize in black and white. But you did an amazing job of it. Love it.ReplyCancel
