Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 152

The wonder of it all!

Welcome to the 152nd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

You were all simply wonderful! I very much enjoyed reading what fills you with wonder and seeing those stunning photos that you provided as evidence of the wonders. Your interpretations were very creative, as always, and there were many that brought a smile to my face. Thanks to each and every one of you for the work you put into these posts!

So, stop wondering, and go discover the wonder that lies in these posts!

Here’s another location that filled me with wonder…

Myvatn Hot Water Spring

Visiting Iceland was a magical experience from a photography perspective, as it is filled with stunning vistas. If you go just a little bit off the beaten path, you are often rewarded, such as this blue-hued wonder that presented itself to me. This hot water spring is surrounded by signs that warn people to not enter it, due to the excessive heat that can occur in this spring.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wonder

Which wonders do you see?

Welcome to week 152 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.

After last week’s pleasant surprise that I hadn’t used Sunrise as a theme before, I really wondered… And, yes!! I have never used Wonder as a theme either! Whether you want to feature the Wonders of Nature, the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World or make us wonder what you may have photographed, there are plenty of directions for you to take this theme! And, of course, I expect all of your ideas to be wonderful!!

I think that there’s a lot of fun to be had with this week’s theme, so I look forward to see what you are going to create!

Here’s one of Nature’s wonders

Giant Swallowtail

This gorgeous Giant Swallowtail was sitting perfectly still, allowing me to get a nice sharp focus that highlights all the amazing details of this stunning creature. One of these days, I will have to prepare a large print to bring out the colors of the individual hairs that truly stand out!

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

Looking forward to see what comes round the bend this week!
