Elemental Nature

This week in the Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge, the challenge is “Five Elements”.

This week you have an opportunity to interpret metal, wood, water, fire, and/or earth with your favorite photos to express “…the only home we’ve ever known”. Feel free to choose one, two… or all five elements.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #47: Five Elements

I’ve enjoyed looking back through all my photos and finding photos that fit this theme. Hope you enjoy them 🙂

On a walk in the village you’ll see there is a metal fence around the field in the village where you can see the village church in the background:

Barbed wire doesn’t look like much from a way off but on a damp day you might find a pretty droplet of water hanging from the metal:

Speaking of droplets of water, you may also find them hanging precariously from trees, transforming a twig of wood into something magical:

And if it’s autumn, you may find a combination of water and fire all at once down in the wood:

On such an autumn day, a walk in the wood becomes a feast for the senses, with the colour of fire filling your eyes:

And by the river you see the fire and the water together again:

Among the fiery autumn leaves, you may find more magic emerging from the dark earth in the form of mushrooms:

And mosses, that can grow on the tiniest bit of earth, can be seen raising their sporophytes like flames of fire into the sky:

Moss particularly likes damp locations, so you’ll often find it growing on rocks and wood near water:

It’s raining today, and while that is a shame if you wanted to go for a walk in the sunshine, nature needs the rain, and you might get some lovely water droplets to photograph when the rain stops again!

And the rain is important for all the spring growth going on down in the wood:

I could go on all day, but I’ll save some picture for another day 🙂
