Weekly Photo Challenge – Saturation

This week we look amongst our collection of photos for something that defines saturation.

My first picture is the first big snowfall of the Winter of 2012. This is not the same saturation as flood, but was certainly a saturation of snow as we got about eight inches.

This is from our first big snow in January.

The second photo is of my mother’s home town of Clinchport, Virginia, which was ravaged in a “Century Flood” in 1977.

Finally a photo of me saturated in whipped cream at the VBS celebration in the summer of 2013.

  3. Thank you so very much for including me in your pingback list! I love seeing pingbacks/comments when I sign-in. 🙂
    I think your snow saturation photo is a perfect choice for the challenge. The vehicle lights cast everything in a silvery white glow : total saturation!

  4. Whether with snow or whipped cream, the sound of fun and joy saturates the moments you shared with us. Totally awesome!

  5. Great photos, Joe. Perfect for the theme. Love the light on the first one. Second one’s scary!

  6. mynuttydubai says:

    Hi Joe!
    Thanks for the pingback 🙂
    That snowstorm of yours looks pretty intense!

  7. pattisj says:

    What fun in that last photo! Did you catch the culprits? Devastating flood, 100 years is often enough, isn’t it?

    • Joe Owens says:

      I tried to motivate the kids by telling them they could “pie” me in the face at the end of the week if they brought more coins than me for our mission project.

  8. ifragrance says:

    Thanks for the ping. Love the snow 😀

    Thanks for the ping, Joe! I love your comical take on the challenge.

So you took time to read what I wrote and I appreciate it, but comments are even better!
