The Nature Walk Project, Calendar: November 2012

Please feel free to download this month’s calendar page for your personal use as a printed wall calendar or electronically as the desktop background on your computer.

very time I head out on one of my nature walks, I can’t help but be enamored with the beauty that nature has to offer. All too often that beauty is fleeting, as lovely plants and habitats change with the seasons and never look exactly the same twice.  I find myself so hypnotized by this fleeting beauty that I will take photo after photo trying to capture just the right angle so I can look back and remember where I was standing, what it felt like and the colors of that moment.  While this is a lovely way to remember the places I’ve been, it often results in an abundance of photos. So I’ve decided to turn at least one of my nature walk photos into a calendar page each month.  I hope you enjoy it and thank you for reading and virtually joining me on all of my nature walks.

This month’s calendar page features brilliantly colored, pink seed pods on a Maple tree that grows near my home.  I hope you have a wonderful November!

30×30 Challenge: Getting Outside, Week 2 Photo Collage

Not sure what I’m talking about?  Catch up on the 30×30 Challenge here.

Another great week outside!  This project is fun because it reminds me to look around and really enjoy everything that I’m seeing when I go for my mini-Nature Walks.  I’ll continue to post this week’s 30×30 photos on Twitter and Facebook.

Where you able to get outside much in the last couple of days?  Does it make you feel happier?

30×30 Challenge: Getting Outside, Week 1 Photo Collage

Not sure what I’m talking about?  Catch up on the 30×30 Challenge here.

I’m happy to say that I was able to get outside for at least 30 minutes everyday last week.  It was a drizzly and rainy week so there was an abundance of mushrooms!  They only last a short while in the hot, sunny Florida climate so I tried to get pictures whenever I could.  I’ll continue to post this week’s 30×30 photos on Twitter and Facebook.

30 x 30 Challenge: Getting Outside

I recently read about the David Suzuki Foundation’s “30 x 30 Challenge” to encourage people to get outside.  It’s an easy concept, go outside and spend time in nature for 30 minutes a day, for 30 days.  I love the simplicity of this and thought I’d give it try! What better way to kick off the second half of 2012, than with a nature challenge?

Follow me on Twitter to get daily updates and photos from my 30 minutes in nature.  I’ll also do a weekly roundup of my photos and post them to Facebook and right here on the blog.  I’ll kick it off with June’s Nature Walk post later today!

For my Canadian readers, there is a contest associated with the 30 x 30 challenge where you can win prizes and fun stuff.  It starts today, so sign up quick if you’d like to participate!  I’m in the US, so I don’t get to participate in the official contest, but you can bet I’ll be outside anyway!
