Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify

This week’s challenge is around the word “Transmogrify” which essentially means to transform “something in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely“. I did not have anything grotesque to show, but here in the southern hemisphere we have just gone from winter into early summer and the trees in our front yard went through a magical transformation over the period of 10 weeks.

    An extraordinary set of pictures – I really like how you’ve taken all of them from the same angle, as it really highlights how those trees change through the seasons.

    P.S. Like Eha, I have very much enjoyed your October Dash. I know it’s meant a lot of work for you, but it’s made for some wonderful informative and entertaining posts for your readers. And I hope you’ve gained something from the whole experience too.

      Thanks Reggie! It was only after I had taken the first two photos, that I thought to make it into a series.

      This is the LAST day of October Dash and I need a break!!! I think my readers do too. 😉 It’s been a really interesting experience – intend to write a post about daily blogging.
