This is my first time posting for Terri’s photo challenge and I thought it might be fun to try. The Sunday Stills topic for this week is Elements – water, fire, earth, and air/wind.
My first set of photos is water. One of the photos was taken at a lovely golf community we love to visit about an hour north of us. The other photo is one of our grandsons sitting along the shoreline of Calibogue Sound in Sea Pines at Hilton Head, SC. I wonder what he is thinking?
The next set of photos is fire. The first photo is our fire pit in the backyard. We have so much fun gathering around it while roasting marshmallows, sipping a hot drink or an adult beverage while we enjoy lively conversation or stare quietly at the flames. The other photo is an advent wreath that we like to light during the Christmas season. We did not continue this tradition this past year and we really missed it. I am on the search for a new wreath for next year.
The next set is Earth. Both photos were taken in my backyard. I just loved how the rays of sun were shining through the trees during the late summer afternoon. The other shows the clouds at sunset on a cold winter twilight.
The last set of photos is wind. This was a little more challenging to find this element. The first photo is the flag on a sunset cruise. The other is a sailboat we spotted in Calibogue Sound. We took both of these photos while staying in Sea Pines in Hilton Head, SC.
Welcome. I love this challenge. I love your photos. The sunset is stunning. I had to log in to twitter to comment since I use Blogger and this weekend nothing has allowed me to log in using Facebook. So weird.
Thanks for your lovely comment!
I enjoyed the photos you chose. Lovely!
We always have candles burning in our Advent wreath. I would miss that is we didn’t do it.
Thank you! It was fun looking through my photos – lots of smiles! It just wasn’t the same this year without our Advent wreath. I had forgotten I threw it away the year before since it was literally falling apart.
We threw one Advent wreath away, too, but we already had another. This one is breakable, and so far all is good. We have no idea how long we’ve had it — maybe 15 or 20 years.
Fun project! ☺️ Great photos!
Thank you so much! It was fun to do! ❤

These pictures are perfect!!
Thank you!! I enjoyed looking through my photos to find something to represent the theme.
Your photography is beautiful! I’m glad you joined your fellow bloggers for Sunday Stills! Welcome, although I happened to notice you posted back in January 2020 for Sunday Stills (probably when Hugh was hosting for me). I like the name of your blog–that’s what I’m doing at the ripe old age of 62, LOL! Love your firepit!
Oh, I did not realize I had posted before, good to know! This has been fun, and I look forward to upcoming themes! Thanks!
