Random Saturday Snapshots 8-29-15









Saturday Snapshots is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads. The only rules are that the pictures are taken by you or a family member or friend and that the content be appropriate for all eyes to see. 

Today are just random pictures of nature and one of my brother. 

 This is a picture taken by my sister in South Dakota, during her morning walk. She walks most mornings in a nearby nature preserve. Isn't this serene?

This picture was taken by my sister in law, who lives in northern Montana near Great Falls.  The setting sun is so red due to all the forest fire smoke. We are experiencing the smoke even here in NE Wyoming.  I thought it was interesting that both photos have foliage in the foreground.

This is a picture of my brother living a life long dream of participating in the Little League World Series. He is behind home plate in this game. The photos of him directly were not taken by a family member or friend by the press, so I cannot share them. If you are interested in a better picture, go to ND/SD Little League District 1 face book page and there is a great photo of him as their cover photo this week. It has been fun watching the games and looking for him.  Those Little Leaguers play great ball. The final games in each division are today, and the Championship game is tomorrow between the US winner and the International winner.

That's all for my random Saturday Snapshots.
Have a great week

  3. The rock and turtle look like they're floating. Love the sun but not that it's that color due to fires. How cool for your brother!

  6. The sunset photo is gorgeous! Didn't know that smoke could do that to the colour, but it is an awesome effect.

  7. The tortoise capture is cool. Great series for the meme.
    Wish you a happy Sunday.

  8. The photo of the setting set certainly catches attention with the red color. When my husband were in Newfoundland, some of our photos had an orange hue from fires in the next province.

    Congrats to your brother!
