Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26 – Distance is all about choosing a photo that shows an object that is in the distance. Maybe it’s a building or a wonderful view that contains an interesting object or scene that, although it is in the distance, shows up really well in the photo? Maybe you can spot where you are headed to from a plane or train and you’ve managed to capture it?
Want to join the fun? Here’s what you need to do.
1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken which defines Distance.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26 – ‘Distance’
3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section so other participants can view the post.

This is a photo of Pike’s Peak which is visible a couple streets over from our house here in Colorado. I took this photo in the dead of winter and as you can see, our housing area is new and still under development.
This is a photo I took in 1996 of a cattle branding at the Dearborn Ranch where I worked in Montana. It was a hot dusty job and made me happy that I worked most of my days in the office in Great Falls taking care of the administrative side of things.
Thanks for popping in to see my take on “distance!”
Hugh is looking for photos of something that shows a gap… I had to really think about this one. Then, I remembered the trip we took in 2009 to Glacier National Park in Montana. I distinctly remembered seeing beauty that was unsurpassed as we drove along Going to the Sun Road. These glimpses of grandeur would leap out at us from between the heavily forested road.
We took this trip in late September, that year. The rain started to fall and the further in elevation we crept the thicker the precipitation got. After only a few miles we turned back. This is one of the scenes I managed to catch in between the “gaps” in the trees of the forest.
Here is one more photo. This is a shot of St. Mary Lake (below).
At Glacier National Park that is what a gap in the woods will show you!
Thanks for popping in,

Jennifer Nichole Wells color this week is beaver: a lovely shade of brown.
The dead leaves and trees in Fairy Swamp surely fit into the “beaver” category for the color brown. I hope to get out tomorrow to see if there is any new growth with color sprouting out yet.
The dead foliage and surrounding hills around the falls, in Great Falls, Montana (taken in January 2010 before we moved) gives you a good feel for the color of beaver.

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the color green! Thanks for checking in on me today. I am always glad to see you all!
Jennifer Nichole Wells One Word Photo color for the week is: strawberry!
Strawberry is one of my favorite shades of pink for flowers in the garden. The deep rosy shade brightens even the dullest of days.
Here are some azaleas in a strawberry color from last spring. I always look forward to the brilliant shades of pinks and reds from the azaleas in Pensacola. The whole city is awash in color.
Here is my Granddaughter Savanna, who loves strawberries. She planted these last summer. They have overtaken the entire flower bed now. We should have a great feast this summer.
This is my flowering crab apple tree from my house in Montana. I picked this tree because of the spectacular ‘strawberry’ colored blooms.
Thanks for stopping by today. It is rainy and cool.
Have a magnificent Wednesday!
