Often the most simple of things are the most beautiful.

This weeks prompt was, “The Gift of Simplicity”

So I set off to find some simple beauty.

I was in a field looking down and around when over head I heard a bird screeching. When I looked up  he swooped and dashed and darted as if saying, “Look at me silly, I am Simply Beautiful!”

And he was.

Simple Hydrangea — yet look at all the detail amidst ONE flower.


Airy and Simple


A simple blade of grass — on a windy day


Ok  🙂  not so simple — This handsome guy was preening himself in the sun.  Wow the colors.

Hope you enjoy the SIMPLE beauty around you.

Grab a camera and start looking!

Have the best week!

    Love your simple photos, Claudia! Did you post the blade of grass? I don’t remember it; the DoF is breathtaking.

    My fav is the hydrangea girlfriend, but all your pics are always stunning. Simple maybe, but beauty abounds.
    It’s been very rough around here. My mom fell and broke her hip on Wed. They operated on Thrus. and now she’s completely lost. We think she hit her head. She is going into rehab when she stops hallucinating and being so confused. I’m afraid her good days are over. SO SO sad Claudia. She never wanted to be like this and now she is : (
    I’m going to work outside today. It’s warm, breeze and I need to change my ideas in this head of mine.
    Thanks for your love.
    Love Me

    That was a great theme. There is MUCH beauty in simplicity.
    I love the hawks that fly around my house.
    and all the wild flowers
    my favorite photo I think was the pretty blue-ish, purple-ish flowers as the setting they are in looks so mystical I think.
