Arrow Photo Challenge #32 ~ Going GREEN {4-26-09}

We've been hearing so much about "Going Green" recently, from Earth Day celebrations to new and improved "greener" versions of just about anything and everything. So how about a "green" challenge. What's your idea of being green? Or maybe you just enjoy the green around you! Whatever it is, please share it with us.

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at anytime!
~ Again - HAVE FUN!


Currently, my "green" is all about planting and yardwork. Here's the sun setting on something we transplanted a few days ago.

After the rains we had this weekend, everything has turned green, and it is a very welcome sight! These are shots of a farmer's field. I'll prpbably be back in a week or so to show photos of environmental greens!

Angie, I love how the sunlight looks in your green photo. Solar energy is "GREEN" as well as your pretty little plant.

Ina, I love your field pictures. I like the one on the right the best. I like how you have the fence post to give your photo some depth.

I took a picture of this tulip when they started blooming right after spring break. They are growing in the front of my school (work). I took it with my macro lens and I LOVE the way the faded color looks. This is the original image.

Great leaves Angie, nice sun spot you captured too.

Love the open field with the fence Ina, reminds me of -the farm I grew up on.

Pretty tulip with the green background Michelle.

Now for my green:
We got a good rain here Monday night and I took these Tuesday morning.
The photos captured the water on the sedum and tulips and the north side of the tree centainly shows the dark bark from the rain and brought out the green in the moss. These are all from our yard.

Enjoy and thanks for the fun challenge Angie!

Right now we're in the middle of our 5th season...break-up . Thats when the snow melts and everywhere you go is mud/dirt and lots of brown. We still have another few weeks before things start to green up. However, there are glimpses of green here and there.

The first photo was taken at a camp about 25 mins north of Anchorage. My oldest son is deaf and they held a retreat for deaf kids this week. I loved the green against the bare trees and frozen pond in the background.

The 2nd photo is of plants that are slowly poking through the floor of the woods around my house. The gray you see on the leaves is actually ash we got from one of Mt.Redoubts explosions last month. With the snow melting anything that was underneath has the coating of ash on it.

Lots of great pictures here! My pictures are of a lake where we bring out dog, Kaden to swim when we're at our camp up in Maine. It's a beautiful spot!

Lots of gorgeous nature photos here! I could sit and look at them all day! Here are two of my environmentally 'green' photos. My dryer broke down and I won't get it fixed until fall. I will have to do my laundry on sunny days. Line drying is very 'green' and I just noticed after I uploaded the photo, that my gardening wheelbarrow is in the shot and gardening is also a green activity!
Photo number two: My brother is a school principal and the vending machines at his school have juice boxes instead of soda. He asks the students to leave the empty boxes in a special container and my darling SIL sews them up into lovely bags..........great for wet bathing suits or for frozen goods from the market!

Ina, your going green shots are both fabulous...nothing smells better than laundry dried outdoors and the bag is just the most creative idea I think I've ever seen!

I agree, they are lovely. My SIL saw them in a tourist shop for $40, and decided she could make them. She does several different sizes and also makes a little change purse.
I also have a pattern for using plastic grocery bags and knitting them up into purses. And a friend of mine knits them up into blankets to send to underdeveloped countries.

This is a picture of the tree in my back yard. I love how the vibrant greens turned out.

Thought I would try to take a photo that was entirely green!

So I wandered around the backyard for a bit and finally came up with this:





(More tomato shots and a tomato song (if you can believe it!)
on my BLOG today!)

One of the stops we made this last weekend were a couple of waterfalls on the Columbia River gorge and this was near the parking lot of the larger one Multnomah Falls... the shot i like a little better was taken right after this the sun came out a little more so the shadows on the pavement are really cool... but, this one is way more "green"

Everything is so green here right now, in spite of having had very little rain this spring. I saw these leaves uncurling when we went for a walk in a park we'd never been to before.

I saw the caterpillar some other morning this week. He could belong in the Mighty Macro, but I'll put him in with the greens.
