Winter Berries Mandala (#17)

This mandala was created with a picture of a Holly Tree branch.

Here is the original:

I was thrilled to be playing with that “brokah” stuff – object in focus in the front, with the back being blurred.

I took this photo on a VERY COLD winter’s day.  These berries were pretty much the only pop of color that I could find in the dead of winter. at the state park we were at.

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!

Fire in the Sky Mandala (#9)

I’ve called this mandala “Fire in the Sky” because I created it from a picture of hot pink clouds during an August sunset.

Autumn Splendor Mandala (#8)

This mandala reminds me of the last burst of warmth we get in fall before winter sets in.  The changing leaves are the last colorful show that nature gives us until the spring.  It is the finale for the year.

This was created from a picture I took during the end of October 2012 at Batsto Village in NJ.  The leaves on this maple just had fabulous color.  Red, orange and yellow leaves still attached to the tree as well as creating a mufti-colored carpet on the ground.

If you were to walk from the visitor’s center towards the lake, these would be the last maples on your right side just before you get to the path that turns right next to the lake.
