Another edition of the Share Six Blog Circle is live! This month the team are sharing their take on the theme {Wonderland}. To me, and most of you I’m sure, Wonderland means Winter Wonderland. Specifically, Snow. But we’re yet to see any snow here this year. I grew up where we saw snow maybe once a […]

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

    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

  • 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

Spring Break has a wonderful habit of coinciding with my birthday, so lucky me has a habit of making celebratory road trip plans. This year, somewhat selfishly, I decided we should visit Texas. I’d be lying if I didn’t say the entire purpose of the trip was to go to Waco, the home of Chip and […]

    I cannot even imagine sliding in sand! All we ever have is snow for our dishes! How cool is that?! Awesome images as always!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 […]

  • 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

  • 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

    Stop the press! These are STUNNING, Ceri! Your tones are incredible, as is your artistic vision! ~ ToriReplyCancel

  • Wow!! I am so glad that you are working on getting out of your funk. These are stunning Ceri. I love all your images but the first one just captured my attention. The tones in all of them are beautiful. I need to go outside and do a few things as well. I have a prism which I have yet to use and I just got 3 new Lensbaby optics. I cannot wait to play with them. Thank you for this gorgeous share.ReplyCancel

  • Ceri I love everything about every image! The prism and convex lens are on my birthday list! I can’t wait to see your “how to” posts!! And you know how much I love freelensing! I am so glad you have joined share six and look forward to seeing your take on each month’s theme!ReplyCancel
