Images & Words - Personal Choice #48








Welcome back to week forty eight and it is time for me to host. First let me apologies for not being around last week to enter a shot or look at anyone else's. I was sick as a dog all week and still don't feel much better. I chose the topic Personal Choice to allow everyone to post what ever they want this week.Not knowing anyone's  personal or religious beliefs I thought it best to stay neutral.This is a shot I took this past month while out spotting deer in the state forest.The lights from the park office were making the snow and night air have this great glowing effect.Thanks for stopping and hope you enjoyed my shot.

The Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.

New topics will be posted on Sundays.

Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please.

  11. Remarkable Photo Joel. Is that as shot or edited. It's hypnotizing.

    Here's my humble offering. Personal Choice always brings me to the yard. I keep thinking next one will be something other than flowers, but that may not happen till next winter.

  18. For me Joel, it's very spiritual. I love it.

    I tried to be spiritual about paths but decided to be a bit more light hearted
