Sunday Stills - Nature's Frames

This next week's challenge is to get something framed by nature. Trees making a frame over a stream, a branch making a fork around the moon…nature does a lot of this if we’ll just open our eyes and look.

I apparently read blah blah blah frames...and totally missed the nature's part of the challenge. So, here are a couple pictures I took of sheep framed in a wooden (ex-tree?) doorway with a sunbeam.



That's Popcorn PeePee Pants facing us.



And Boudreaux. Poor Boudreaux. Poor Big Boudreaux. The butt of too many posts lately. I'm sorry Boudreaux. Here, have a cookie ;-).

I took these pictures with my iPhone. While definitely not the same as the Nikon, I've had a ton of fun snapping decent pictures of this and that, especially out feeding in the evenings or early morning.

With just a touch of a "button" I can post them to my Twitter account and that's become almost a second blog. A micro blog. Wait, a lamb sized blog! If you are interested, feel free to follow along and scroll back for a nice Keebler picture, a bunch of Hank shots, Renny and Ewenice headed down the driveway and even the stupid Adventure Chickens make it on there occasionally.

So, for some Sunday Stills folks who did read the directions this week...

aren't sheep part of nature, well they are framing part of your picture. Excellent shots by the way. I have a new phone with usb cord maybe I should try taking pictures with it since I don't always have camera when I need it.

I think the photos are great no matter WHAT camera you used or what kind of frame is framing the sheep!

I really need to start using Twitter. I have an account but use it about once every six months...

I think the "former trees" frame the sheep beautifully.
I love the rainbow of light coming through the barn.
Just lovely...
