Alphabet Project | N is for nature

August 13, 2014

Thank you to everyone that joined the Alphabet Photography Project over the past week with letter M.

Letter N really had to be for nature. We appreciate it so much more having moved to Surrey (from London) four years ago. There’s lots of National Trust woodland to explore locally – POD loves being surrounded by nature. We’re also regular visitors to RHS Wisley which is where this photograph was taken.

How to join in

The Alphabet Photography Project runs every Wednesday. A Linky is live from that day until the following Tuesday so you can upload a short post or an Instagram photo. If you include a link back to PODcast I’m happy to share it for you.

You can post a photo on Instagram (PODcast is here) using the hashtag #alphabetphoto. There are also PinterestFacebook and Google+ groups.

Ideas for letter N 

The #alphabetphoto theme can be interpreted in any way you choose. Your letter might be a photograph for example, an object that resembles a letter or an adjective. Have a look at the letter N hints in last week’s post. If you get really stuck, an online Scrabble dictionary is a good point of reference!

Inspiration for letter O

Here are a few ideas to get us thinking about letter O:

Oranges, ocean, ornaments, objects, Olympic, opulent, orange, oak, obsession, old fashioned, old, open, outstanding, oink, owl, opal, otter, opera, offer, oasis, outdoor, oxygen, oyster, owning, others, orchid, octopus, olives, oops, outjump, outlast, ostrich, orchard, orbit, one, officer, overjoyed, once, overlook, overleaf, overboard, omelette, own, off, our, oar, open.

There are also lots of inspirational photographs on the #alphabetphoto Pinterest board:

    […] So N is for North Carolina black bear (rather appropriate as N is for nature in this week’s Alphabet Project at Podcastdove!) […]

    What a super photo! Is this using a macro lens? I would love to take shots like this – I love nature and would love to be able to capture it in my photos too. So amazing.

    Great capture – never even thought of Nature! dooh

  • Jo @ 3 Kids and a Gluestick August 13, 2014 at 11:43 pm

    Oh I saw that flower at Wisley today and took a photo of it too! Beautiful aren’t they!
    I was so sure I’d do Nature this week.. but I just couldn’t find the “right” photo.. so I went with something different instead!

  • Maria August 14, 2014 at 1:05 am

    What a stunning photo! Though I am not fond of bees, your image makes them seem tamer and a lot more harmless than I perceive. Thank you for sharing!

  • Leigh Kendall August 14, 2014 at 11:48 am

    What a beautiful shot! Must have taken a bit of time and patience to set up xx

  • Sara (@mumturnedmom) August 14, 2014 at 5:25 pm

  • Elizabeth August 15, 2014 at 9:31 am

    beautiful photograph – looks like an echinacea flower? Have linked up with guest post on noise by my sound engineer husband. There’s even noise on the post – and a quiz to see if you can identify the real sample! 🙂 We had a lot of fun with this week’s challenge, thanks for hosting it!

    Gorgeous close up, when ever I try and catch bees they fly away!

  • Sophie Lovett August 16, 2014 at 5:36 pm

    Fantastic photo! And a great choice for n – it took me ages to come up with something for this one, and even longer to get round to writing the post! Summer has a lot to answer for… X
