Landscapes and the Feet I’m Thankful For

Landscapes are my entries today in the monthly PHOTO CONTEST over at Pix-O-Sphere in the Landscapes category, as well as “Feet” in the Monthly Theme “Feet” category.

This familiar picture was featured in my post Going Off-Road and is the path Sadie Mae and I frequent on our walks.

The below two pictures were taken at Reimers Ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas. This beautiful park has almost three miles of continuous frontage along the Pedernales River and is well-known by the rock-climbing community.

On a day trip, I followed my Scout leader husband, our Scout sons, and another Scout dad, as they tested climbing spots for their Scout Troop to experience. I was in photography bliss. We were only there a few hours but those hours in nature revived my soul.

This last “feet” picture is my son’s Christmas present. All he wanted were these Vibram Fivefinger toe shoes.

And to wrap up my giving thanks counting to one thousand gifts, I’m also thankful for
