First and foremost, happy Valentine’s Day to all of my fellow bloggers out there. I hope your day is filled with love and happiness!! Now on to my post for the day…….
Nature is an awesome thing, and I am constantly amazed by the beauty of its patterns and designs. One of the things I enjoy the most about nature is the fuel it provides for my imagination. I can hear you all now – what the heck is she talking about?
Well, when my kids were little we used to play the cloud game. On warm summer days, we would lay out on the lawn, look up at the clouds and see what our imagination could find in the formations. Sometimes we would see lions or dragons, while other times we would see a giant icecream sundae. Whatever the case, the cloud game was never the same twice, and it provided hours of entertainment because of our imaginations.
I’m sure if you think carefully, you can remember a time when you have looked at a tree and seen a face or looked up at a rock formation and pictured an animal of some kind. In my photo today, it was a combination of rocks and trees that tickled my imagination. I took this picture on one of our waterfall tours/hikes during the summertime, and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to capture it with my camera. To me, it is obviously a rhinoceros – you can distinctly see the eyes, the jaw, the shape of the skull, and an incredibly long horn. However, sometimes when I look at this photo, for some reason it reminds me of transformers, the alien robots from the movies who can disguise themselves by transforming into everyday machinery.
This photo is right out of the camera. I’m sure there’s some editing I could have done, but I love the bright background and the dark foreground. To me it adds to the atmosphere of the scene. What do you see when you look at this photo?
Going outside is the best gift anyone can give. (Discoveries and faces everywhere)
I totally agree!
Yes, I definitely see the rhino! But, it is an astounding picture anyway “as is.” Amazing shot. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Dor! You say the sweetest things, and I appreciate it!!
I can see the rhino…it also looks like an elephant raising its trunk to me. I like this game!
Ooooh, Elephant – I never thought of that one!! Glad you liked it TBM. 🙂
Yes, it looks like an elephant and a rhino. Great post. Happy Valentines Day 🙂
Thanks, and hope you had a great Valentine’s Day!! 🙂
I also see the Rhino…. but the first thing I saw was a Triceratops!!!! (my brother was into dinosaurs when he was little… somehow this stuck!!!) 😀 **
You know something, my oldest, Bryan, was totally into dinosaurs too. I should have totally seen a Triceratops!!
I saw rhino immediately.
Yes, me too, but what I love the most is how I can “see” so many features of the rhino!
For me it’s a turtle, balancing a curved pole on the tip of its nose. Great shot–what fun!
Ok, you definitely win the best imagination of the day award. Turtle balancing a pole – that’s awesome!! 🙂
That is a tremendous image!
Thanks! I’m really glad you liked it. 🙂
I still look at the clouds and try to see what they look like! I guess some things you never outgrow… 🙂
Yes, I still play the game too, but it’s a little dangerous I guess when I play it while driving!! LOL 🙂
