In 2022, I'm relaunching a monthly feature: Nearby Nature Project. Articles will focus on nearby nature, such as planter pots, gardens, yards, neighbourhood and nearby parks/trails. Each story will include at least one link to an interesting article or research study, YouTube, podcast, nature-related app, book, course or other materials. And I'll share a nearby nature subject that caught my attention over the past month.
The Photo Blogging Challenge theme for February 2021 is I Spy With My Eye, which lends itself to pretty much anything. I am grateful that during these ongoing COVID times, host PJ is choosing themes that make it easy to participate from anywhere. We are spending most of our COVID time in beautiful Canmore, Alberta, Canada, where we enjoy getting out and about for exercise and a daily dose of Vitaming N(ature). With health guidelines keeping us close to home for the past year, we appreciate that photography prompts us to keep a sharp eye out for new subject matter and new takes on the familiar.
So many possibilities for this (and every) month's theme! We all need liquid to live. We also need to be liquid (i.e. flush with cash) to pay our bills! Liquid is also a phase of matter, where particles are free to flow. I got creative exploring various characteristics of matter in the liquid state, things like density, polarity and refraction. This post showcases some of the results.
