Nature Pictures

These pictures were taken at Erna Nixon Park in Central Brevard Florida.




Can you see the heart?





I call this a gnome door. :)

I like the gnome door. I imagine a whole Tardis-like world inside. :) Lovely pics!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That is some serious moss. Nice shots!

Jo said...

The first picture makes me think the two trees are embracing. Great pix.

I love nature pictures. They are awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Lisa Thomson said...

These are gorgeous, Chrys! Inspirational for writing.What insect is eating the leaves in the 5-7 pictures?

Loni Townsend said...

Pretty pictures!

Chrys Fey said...

The gnome door is my favorite too. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Haha. It is.

Chrys Fey said...

They do. :) I forgot what the pink stuff on them is called but the darker it is the better the air quality is.

Chrys Fey said...

You're welcome! :)

Chrys Fey said...

I have no idea. Some kind of pest, but I think the leaves look so pretty. Like lace.

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks! :)

betty said...

These were all great! I liked the leaves shaped like hearts too! Looks like a relaxing place to go to :)

I love taking pictures of Nature. I live right near a pond, and like to go for walks around it, or just sit by the pond reading and doing artwork.. Unfortunately, some of the most interesting things happen on Saturday, when I can't use a camera. I missed a photograph of a heron or some other kind of long-legged, fish-stalking bird one Saturday.

I particularly like the photographs of your trees.

Pat Hatt said...

Great shots, nature sure can show many images. Hearts and all.

Debra Renée Byrd said...

Lovely pics! I especially love the gnome door. Those bugs need not waste so much leaf. ;)

Chrys Fey said...

It is a very relaxing place. And it's easy to connect with nature there.

Chrys Fey said...

So do I. I'm always seeing plants, flowers, and especially trees that I want to photograph.

Thanks!

Chrys Fey said...

Hearts and all. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Haha! They just needed a snack. :P

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Really cool pictures. I love the moss that looks like spilled paint.

Turn right at the heart and meander under cover of lace-strewn leaves, near a puddle of soft green moss a miniature portal to magic awaits where troubles are left at the X. What a lovely morning walk! Thanks for the visuals :-)

Sarah Foster said...

Beautiful pics! I love the gnome door :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

The little doorway in the trunk is story-inspiring.

Liza said...

I love finding hearts in nature.

nashvillecats2 said...

Awesome pictures. I love what Mother Nature has on offer no matter whatever the season.

Yolanda Renée said...

Nothing more beautiful than nature. You're a good photographer!

holli said...

The gnome door and the mossy bottom tree were my favorites. The leaves with the holes make me sad. Arent those done by bugs? I think its bad for the trees. Great pictures !

Liz A. said...

What's with those leaves. Looks like some critter got to them.

Mary Kirkland said...

Love those pictures. I love the gnome door. I would have to travel to the mountains in order to see that much green here. Living in the desert sucks at times. lol

Jeffrey Scott said...

I love the gnome door. And the plant that is being eaten alive.
I don't know why, but there is also something about the first photo that makes me blush.

Chrys Fey said...

Me too. :)

Chrys Fey said...

I love how you described it! That was brilliant. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks! :)

Chrys Fey said...

It is. I wanted to knock on it to see what would happen. :P

Chrys Fey said...

It's a special treat, isn't it. :)

Chrys Fey said...

So do I. Each season is spectacular in its own way.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! :D

Chrys Fey said...

Yes, the holes in the leaves are done by bugs, but I thought it looked beautiful. Like lace.

Chrys Fey said...

Some little pest did.

Chrys Fey said...

Gosh, I wouldn't be able to live in the desert.

Chrys Fey said...

HAHA!!!! Because it looks like the trees are embracing? Or doing something....dirty?

Jeffrey Scott said...

And the one trees bum is hanging out. LOL

Chrys Fey said...

LMAO!! I just noticed that too. Now I feel like censoring that picture. :P

Denise Covey said...

I love the heart! If we take the time to look, nature has so much to show us! A beautiful share Chrys. :-)

Birgit said...

I do see the heart and love that gnome door. All these pictures remind me of a Tolkein world

Cherdo said...

I frequently take pictures like this to use for art reference. Nature is beautifully inspiring.

sage said...

It's great to see your photography

Shannon Lawrence said...

Wow, it's green there. I love the gnome door! And yes, I see the heart.

Rhonda Albom said...

The color of those leaves is really beautiful. I don't think I have seen it before. And the others, what is eating them?

Cynthia said...

I love your gnome door.

The leaves with the holes suggest an exciting pre-story.

Lux G. said...

Heart shaped things from nature are the cutest. Creative on gnome door. :D

Anonymous said...

These are great. I love the orange leaves, moss, and gnome door. I'm always taking nature pics as I find interesting things.

Stephanie Faris said...

Awesome! It's so hot outside here...it's tough to be outside for long. It doesn't look like it was hot with these pictures, though. It looks like you could just find a tree, sit down beneath it, and write for hours!

Denise said...

Looks like some bugs and animals have been having a good time. Thanks for sharing.

Chrys Fey said...

It sure does. <3 :)

Chrys Fey said...

They do look like a Tolkein world. :D

Chrys Fey said...

I agree!

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks , Sage!

Chrys Fey said...

The green was spectacular. :)

Chrys Fey said...

You're about the fifth person to ask that. lol Some kind of hungry pest.

Chrys Fey said...

A pre-story. Hmm... ;)

Chrys Fey said...

It's rare to find hearts in nature but so special when you do.

Chrys Fey said...

Nature pics are my favorite!

sherry fundin said...

I love you chose to share the less than perfect side of nature. Even a bug can contribute to a wonderful design. Is the area near your home? Tree photos are one of my faves, I mean...just look at how beautiful they are. I love them all.

Chrys Fey said...

Tell me about it! I barely go outside these days. It was a bit humid when I took those pictures but I plan to go back in the fall to really enjoy the scenery with cooler weather.

Chrys Fey said...

They were hungry. lol You're welcome!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! You're the first to say that those leaves had a wonderful design. I loved them and thought they looked so artistic. This park is a bit of a drive, but not too far. So it's perfect for a little escape. :)

Patsy said...

Great pictures. I especially like the second one and the mossy ones.

Chrys Fey said...

THANK YOU! :D

Elizabeth said...

Those are some fun pictures! They look like they would fit right in to a fairy tale setting :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! :D
