The Great Outdoors | Weekly Photo and Journal Prompt/Challenge for Memory Keepers

Who's enjoying the summertime?  Ok, so maybe you're not in the same hemisphere as I am and you're out enjoying some winter weather instead... Regardless of where you are or what season it is, this week's challenge is to document the Great Outdoors!

It is no secret that my husband and I spent a lot of time outdoors.  While I've never really been an "outdoorsy" person, I am married to one. So the majority of our marriage has been a really awesome compromise - he encourages me to do something outdoors and I say, "only if I can bring my camera", to which he agrees. The next you thing you know we've been out and about all day and I've captured over 100+ photos. Sound familiar?

I love taking nature photography... In fact, on my photography blog, you can find all kinds of images I've taken over the years.


There's something refreshing to the soul to take a day, spend it outside, and fully recharge. The beauty of nature is amazing, enlightening, and glorious.

This week I encourage you to spend some time outdoors... Visit a park, stand under a tree, hike with the family, take a majestic photo, capture a creepy crawly, just share and document the great outdoors we all enjoy so much!
