Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Nature Grown Witch Face for Harvestival...Holloween~

Halloween is just about my least favorite holiday and yet so many others adore it, so

Happy Harvestival...Happy Halloween ;)

The old barn scene with the sky at sunrise, seemed quaint and peaceful as I drove by it a couple of weeks ago. I needed something to make my nature grown, witch tree face to pop, as well as the spider web, that I almost walked through, which made the spider move, which made my heart skip more than one beat...I needed to make those images pop as well.

Last month when we were traveling, we had made a stop for refreshments.  As I walked back across the parking lot, I could see this face on the tree from a good distance.  I told my husby that I needed to check it out.  Can you see it?  I can even see eyelashes...crazy~

I invite you to check out more 'Skywatch Friday' posts from around the world at:


  1. It is such a wise and smiling face and I love the hair as well. Isn't it wonderful how a tree will sometimes show it;s face to a casual (or not so casual) passer by. I think they pick only special people to reveal themselves to.
    Love the gentle sunrise blessing the old barn.

  2. oh, the witchy face is remarkable!!! love her!

  3. I can see it too, beautiful photos

  4. The witch face made me smile. :) I do like old holey barns! Very nice.

  5. The gnarly tree face is intriguing! Happy skywatching!

  6. A witchy face indeed!! And a spooky spider for the day! Terrific! Love the beautiful, soft sunrise behind the old barn and what a wonderful capture for the day! Hope you have a great weekend!


  7. I like the barn scene! And the face is plain as day!!
