Corner View - The Great Outdoors

I got to pick the "Corner View" theme this week !
It's probably no surprise that I picked
as we spend a lot of time there !!

Whether it is enjoying an afternoon at the beach,


climbing on the rocks.


Or taking a walk down memory lane when stumbling upon a rare sight of changing leaves.


Or shooting hoops at the park.


It might be looking out over a National Park.


Or taking a walk through it.


Feeling the cool water after a long bushwalk.


Walking through the rain forest.



Or under a water fall.


Or just sitting enjoying the ocean breezes.


It might be building sandcastles.


Or lazing on a blanket with a book, a sketch pad and some pencils.


Really ... it could be any of these things in our Corner of The World.
We're not picky ... we love them all !!


PS ... I was trying to figure out some clever way to include this cheeky grasshopper ...
While the PS option may not be clever, he's included ...


Be sure to visit Jane at Spain Daily to see the list of other Corner View participants !!

Love all the pictures! The waterfall and grasshopper are classic! Thanks for the great theme this week.

In that natural freshwater pool or under the waterfall is where I'd be. PS I'll keep that PS option in mind:)

When you post pictures, I just sit in awe. You have such a gift for capturing special moments. I know I tell you that all the time, but your pictures just seem so alive and jump out as amazing.

Have a great day!

Leeann May 14, 2009 at 12:58 AM  

Joining the chorus in saying that your photos are amazing. What I love most is the composition of your photos. I almost always make my kids front and center. Your photos are just so INTERESTING.

Two big thumbs up!

Anonymous May 14, 2009 at 1:08 AM  

what fantastic photos of your outdoor adventures. love that cheeky grasshopper.

Terri May 14, 2009 at 2:13 AM  

The grasshopper and waterfall - what great pictures. And the water in the picture is so gorgeous - I love the blues and greens.

Schanett May 14, 2009 at 2:16 AM  

these rocks are very very beautiful!
it's what I said in my post:
there are so many so beautiful landscapes!

Unknown May 14, 2009 at 2:36 AM  

You definitely have a beautiful corner view of the great outdoors :)

caitlin May 14, 2009 at 2:41 AM  

Thanks for picking such a perfect theme. And are every single one of these photos hanging in your home?? They are amazing. Seriously, from week to week your photos blow me away. Seriously gorgeous. I wish I could hop (like that grasshopper) into every single one of these photos and enjoy them with the rest of you.


(oh and you were probably in Southern Utah when you drove through. This is more north. what's amazing about Utah is that you have such diversity, I would reccommend going to Zions National Park in the fall, it's spectacular)

Beautiful shots, Bonnie! Fresh air does the body and soul good, doesn't it? While we don't have a rain forest in our backyard, I love being outside, too. :)
