Let’s Be Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Green

Let's be Wild Audience Award February 14, 2013 update: I just found out I won the Let’s be Wild Audience Award for this photo challenge on Green! I want to thank everyone for their kind comments on my photos. This is the first time I’ve been recognized for my photo work, so this is a big deal for me. 🙂

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers. This week’s Challenge is: Green.

You can click on the photos below for a larger view.

Green isn’t something you see a lot of in San Diego. The outdoor scenery is gray, brown and yellow most of the year. Still, you can be lucky and capture some green on camera, like that spring day when I stumbled upon this patch of surreal green at Dos Picos County Park. You can view more photos of Dos Picos County Park here, and here.

Green is the color of grass, even when it’s covered with dew and spiderwebs from grass spiders. You can view more photos of these spiderwebs with dew in this post.

I love the bold green on the plants below, even when covered with winter frost. You can view more photos of plants covered in frost here, here and here.

Even the rain can’t wash out the green of this tree branch. You can view more photos of raindrops on these tree branches here and here.

There’s plenty of green at the San Diego Botanic Garden, including on this beautiful topiary of a dancing couple. You can see more amazing topiary in this post.

  1. We usually always have some green, because when the snow melts, the grass underneath is green. But sometimes in August, that grass turns an ugly brown from the heat unless one uses sprinklers, which I always feel guilty about doing, so I tell my husband to leave them off. But he rarely listens. 🙂

    • I used to see the same thing in CT, where people would just rely on the rain to water their lawn. They get enough rainstorms in the summer for it to prevent most browning. Now, what I find ridiculous is the amount of water we use here to have green lawns. Water is so expensive, I don’t even understand how to justify it.

    • Thanks, Jane! It was great to find out which photos people preferred and why. All different reasons because everybody has different tastes out there.
