K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Beautiful Spirits of the Natural World

K'lee and Dale's

Greetings All.

Welcome to Monday here at Obzervashunal. I hope everyone stumbling across this post is coming off of if not a great weekend, at the least, a decent- to- good weekend.

Question: Can the natural world have beautiful spirits?

Answer: Undoubtedly yes!

The reasoning for the questioning and answering?

Beautiful Spirits of the Natural World happens to be the latest prompt in the ongoing, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Now, if you didn’t know, each week my buddy Dale and I alternate offering up new prompts to challenge you into seeing or even just thinking about your world a little differently.

My hope in coming up with this particular challenge was to get you and me to take a deeper look at the Natural World and consider the notion of a ‘beautiful spirit’ and how you’d go about defining/creating your version of…one…or three…or ten!

Me personally? I decided on the number four. One more than the customary three. One less that five.

Here’s what I did:

From four photos of various wildlife I took at different times of the year, which all spoke to me of yes, beautiful spirits

The Snow Leopard Spirit

The Roseate Spoonbill Spirit

The Grizzly Bear Spirit

…and my personal favorite of the four-

The Silverback Gorilla Spirit

I can also say that at the last minute, I decided to give these photos my ‘painted graphic‘ look, turning photos from my camera into something slightly resembling a painting. At least that’s how I see it in my ‘mind’s eye’!

So. There you have it. My take on my own prompt, Beautiful Spirits of the Natural World.

You know… you’re welcome to join in on the fun if you wish. Trust me when I say it’s not hard to do.

Here’s all you’d need to do:

Create your post as you normally do. Once complete and to your personal liking, copy your post’s URL and paste it into the comment section of either this challenge post or the one you’ll also find over at Dale’s site. (linked up above!)

Lastly, be sure to use our #CosPhoChal tag as yet another means of helping others quickly find your amazing work.

With that done, you’re in it to win it!!!

Best of Mondays to you All and here’s hoping the coming week is a great one too.
