CB&W: All About Nature


In amongst the


the everyday,

the hither and thither

of life rushing by,

there’s no time to talk,

no time to rest,

no time…



Breathe deep.

Tilt your face to the sun;

feel the warmth on your skin.

The world will wait.

Listen to the

harmonies of nature’s music

as wind strummed trees

join in chorus with buzzing insects,

whilst trilling birdsong

fills the air.


All it takes is a moment.

So stop.

And breathe deep.

The world will wait.


This post is for Cee’s Black and White Challenge. This week’s theme is It’s All About Nature. The pictures were all taken at the meadow at various times this year.

I hope you like them.

    • Thanks, Lena. I’ve photographed a lot of insects this summer, but that picture is my favourite out of all of them! And I was really pleased by how well it works in b&w, as well. I’m glad you like it too.:)
