Summer Sunset Mandala (#12)

Created from a picture I took of a sunset in late August when I was “stranded” on an island (not nearly as interesting as it sounds).

Here is the original:


I remember this particular day well.  We were out boating on our little lake and looking for a geocache on a little island.  So we get to the island and the batteries run out on the GPS !!! The dog and I hung out on the island while Doug zipped back to the house to get more batteries.  The boat moves a lot quicker with only 1 person in it.  Soc (the dog) and I hung out on the island watching the sunset.  I took lots of pictures as we watched it sink behind the tree line.  Even with fresh batteries in the GPS we never did find that geocache that evening!

Flower Mandala – Swamp Mallow (#3)

This is my 3rd photo mandala.  This was created from a photo of a Swamp Mallow plant that was growing along a section of the Rancocas Creek in August. The Rancocas was the first creek I paddled in southern NJ.

Those swamp mallows are quite pretty.  That day I saw them in shades of pale pink and the hot pink color used in this mandala.

Here is the original photo:


I really like how the holes in the leaves from some bugs having lunch became nice details in the mandala.

Look for this photo to pop up again in another creative inspiration.
