Lens-Artists Photo Challange 137: “Soft”

For Lens-Artists Photo challenge is Ann-Christine our host this week and she challenges us with “soft”.

There are many soft things around us and I collected a few of them here in this post.


The fur of certain mammals is very soft:



The feathers of birds are also very soft. Have you ever carried an owl on your hand or arm? So big, but so lightweight and their coat is soooo soft.

Some plants produce soft fibers

or in greater areas, they are considered being a soft carpet


Fog is able to cover you in softness

as well as smoke can do



or the soft morning light, which embraces you with warmth

Were you ever able to feel the softness of a cloud? You can do so while flying with a hot-air balloon.

Walking on the beach you can feel the soft warm sand below your feed. The softness hinders you to walk in the same speed as you would walk along a road.

The softness of warm air can embrace you gently as well as warm water can do


as well as freshly washed and dried clothes.

or a baby’s skin

or simply love when touching your beloved softly.


Take care!

  1. Some amazing examples as usual Andre – the baby lamb stole my heart this week 😊. I do, however, have a complaint. I used to be able to click on the photos to enlarge them but now that doesn’t work. Have you changed something? I miss being able to see larger versions.

        1. I’m still using the old editor. So, always click each image and change the link from “none” to “attachment page”. That’s what I initially forgot today.

          1. Hmmm…..that’s interesting Andre. I’m on the new one (not a fan I must admit) but will doublecheck to make sure that’s working on my post as well.

  2. A great collection of softies, Andre! I have many favorites here – your animal sections of course, but also the softness of human skin, babies especially. Clever thinking of washed clothes too.

What do you think?
