We have some fantastic photographers here so I hope this challenge will appeal to a lot of people.

To enter, you must take an original photograph which captures or symbolises something spiritual for you. You must post a short explanation with your photograph about what it means to you spiritually. You must give your photograph a title.

Nature/animal photography is fine as long as your explanation reflects the spirituality you find in nature. Other ideas would be pictures of religious buildings; pictures of old buildings or historical sites with "echoes" of the past; sweeping, haunting landscapes; graveyards; a site that is sacred to you; sky/sea etc pictures; pictures of the elements; pictures with intriguing light anomalies; portraits or child/family/pet pictures which reflect something of unconditional love, healing or spirituality to you; pictures of your spiritual collections or tools; a spiritual altar or area in your home.

Feel free to use a different idea and if you are unsure whether it would count but you don't want to share it here, pm me about it. Mostly whether it would count is to do with the spin you put on it with your title and explanation.

Each person may enter up to 3 unique photographs.
These will be counted as separate entries, giving you 3 chances to win the challenge.

Please take new photographs for this challenge and do not use photographs you have taken in the past.

All entries must be posted here by 20th May to be included in the voting.

here is my first entry : "angel light"
This has spiritual meaning because its the days end and the light shining down over the angel makes me feel angels are watching down over me and using that angel to represent angels better, it also has spritual meaning as its fom a gravestone

Here is mine:



Contemplation

Out in Nature rejuvenates me and helps me look deep within for the answers that I need. Nature is very relaxing to me and also helps remind me that we are all connected in some way.

Loved this sunset...could not tell what was sky, what was water, and what was ground...everything was connected and colored pink or purple!

here's my go


its called "tranquility"

it is spiritual to me because i feel most spiritual around water and sunsets. the stillness relaxes me and allows me to let go of everything that is on my mind, while the colors of the sunset rejuvenate me

OK here are my three:
My first one is of a tree - I love trees : ) I believe they have spirits and the older they are the greater their energy. I love old sinewy ones like this - its my favorite tree in my mountain neighborhood. : )

This is my favorite mountain view from my house - I call this spot "Gods Window"

There is a monestary around the corner from my home and they have this statue in front of their home - I love it not just because it is a beautiful depiction of Josheph, Mary and the baby Jesus but because is symbolizes what I believe about children - that they are close to the Divine and we should look to them as models for how to live - with joy in every moment, true faith, sweet innocence and pure love.

Here's mine:
Water walk


Yeah, it's a nature picture! LOL However, we all know that water is a huge spiritual tool for me! This is where Phoenix and I go to sit and skip rocks on nice days. So it holds a lot of meaning for me.

Here is my first entry. i hope to add at least one more.

This is called Dying Day. I love the view from our lounge because you can see the most beautiful sunsets and I think there is something magical about saying goodbye to a day in its final hours.

I don't know how you girls are going to pick when you vote. These pictures are stunning!

We don't seem to have had a single entry on any of the other challenges, is anybody planning one?

This picture is called Ewan's Rose. This is the exact rose we scattered our babies ashes around. If it were not for him i would not be on my path of spirituality, so this is the most significant photo i can ever enter a spiritual photo comp.
