CMMC: Photos with the Letter V


I searched through my collection of photos (and took a few more!) for Cee’s photo challenges today: Flower of the Day (FOTD) and Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) — anything with the letter V. The first photo is of the volcanic Koko Crater in Oahu, Hawaii. If you look close enough, you can see the tramway trail that people attempt to climb right up the middle of it (this is illegal, and you will get a ticket, last I heard).

Here are some of my favorite vintage Volkswagen vehicles:


I recently went back to local park and tried to capture more photos of the male hummingbird amongst the red salvia. I think I was more successful than the last time. The trick is to just remain still on the bench that overlooks the flowers; he will come out of the orange tree and visit.

Yesterday, I went out and captured new blooms on my sea lavender plant, which is crazy, because I thought it just went out season last month.

A visit to the Angeles National Forest provided me with this vista, including a view of Antelope Valley:

  1. In my mind, laVander plants are a gentle Violet, and your photo taught me it’s the most marVelous, Vibrant Violaceous πŸ™‚ The color is astounding: I’d love to have clothes that color. It is magnificent (no V, but the sentiment is there πŸ™‚ )
