Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Special Spot Shots

This week, Ann-Christine gives us a tour of Diocletian’s Palace in Croatia and invites us to share our own Special Spot Shots. 

My special spot is not an exotic location far away. What makes it special is that I wake up to it every day, in every season, in all kinds of weather. It is a parcel of land measuring about 56 acres, including woodland, wetland, and prairie habitats. I rent a house here from my employer, the Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation. Recently, it was opened to the public as the Joan M. Pick Nature Preserve. 

I have been extremely fortunate to have called this place my home for 3 years. I am planning to leave in another 6 months, and I know that I will miss its many facets and familiar charms. Here is a gallery of photos that I’ve taken of this property.

  1. Oh my, Scilla, surrounded by such beauty and natural life. It doesn’t get any better than that – only different. Thank you for helping me see this part of the world. M

    • I’m happy to share it, and I hope you’re faring okay where you are. I’m not sure specifically, but I think you live near some pretty scary natural surroundings that are going through a traumatic change.

  2. Wow Priscilla, what a wonderland of nature you live in – it must be very difficult to think of leaving it. I especially loved your cranes and would love to see them one day.

  3. You live in a wonderful part of the world – don’t know how you want to leave it though…but I have seen so many stunning images from Oregon, so if you are going there – I guess the wonder will continue!
