Double-Dipping: LAPC #181, Cellpic Sunday, WWE, and Weekend Sky #51: Local Parks

Most of my trips outdoors involve some type of photos of the sky, so when I found Hammad Rais’s Weekend Sky photo challenge, I thought it was a perfect match for the thousands of sky photos I have collected.

I want to put myself out there more and share more of my photos, so I also like Lens-Artists Photo Challenge (LAPC), Jez’s Water Water Everywhere (WWE), and Journeys with Johnbo’s Cellpic Sunday challenges. This week’s LAPC #181 asks us to double-dip with the photo challenges. Here are my photos are for LAPC #181, Cellpic Sunday (first photo of this post is from my iPhone 12 Pro Max), WWE, Weekend Sky #51.

I may always be looking up with my camera, but I stay grounded in the nature around me.

I am lucky to be able to enjoy beautiful skies in southern California (I have a knack for avoiding the smog), and can’t wait to share more photos with everyone. Have a great week!

I am an avid nature and ecology lover and enjoy sharing my photography in my blog writings. I will often be out early in the morning or late in the evening with my camera, trying to capture the peacefulness and beauty around me.

    1. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜Š I try to enjoy the wide-openness out west, since I know itโ€™s not like that everywhere. Iโ€™ve been to some places where thereโ€™s so many trees (which I love), but you canโ€™t see the horizon.
