Drumtroddan Skies – Photo for the Week – 12 – Clouds

In this weeks challenge Bren asks:

For this week’s challenge, I thought I would choose the subject of Clouds.  To me, clouds make an image.  I love images where clouds have drama.  Stormy skies are my favorite.

So here is a picture of the Drumtroddan Stone Row taken earlier in the year – a four photo stitch in which I loved the way the sky appeared to be rolling against the stone.

Scorhill – Photo for the Week – 11 – Textures

In this weeks challenge Bren asks:

For this week’s challenge, I thought I would choose the subject of Textures. . . Your images can be images that show texture or an image where you’ve added a textured overlay.  It doesn’t matter, just as long as we can see the texture.

So below is a picture of Scorhill stone circle, taken on our trip earlier to Dartmoor, a series of photos I am long overdue editing.  It is a 2 photo panoramic stitch, and has been layered up with quite a few textures.

Drumtroddan Stone Row – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Go Big!

In this weeks challenge Dutch goes the Photo! asks:

Unleash your creative minds, lenses and pens, and share what Go Big! might mean to you.  As always, you have license to take the theme into any direction of your choosing, so have fun with this theme!

I also chose something from antiquity, so here are two pictures at Drumtroddan Stone Row.

In this weeks challenge Ryan asks:

for this week’s challenge, I thought I would use ‘bridges’ as the topic for this week’s Photo for the week.

River Nith – A Photo a Week Challenge: Water.

In this weeks challenge Nancy asks us to:

SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT FEATURES WATER OF ANY KIND.

Those of you who follow me on FB, G+, or on this blog will have noticed the photos I have recently been posting of the River Nith in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, where we spent a holiday earlier in the year.  Each night we would return to a magnificent golden dappled water after our daily outings.

It is fair to say I fell in love with this stretch of water.

Lift – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Lift

In this weeks challenge Dutch goes the Photo! asks:

After we cleared the heady scenes from the past week, which were great fun and very creative, it’s time to let our spirits rise.  With that in mind, I think that we take this week’s challenge with the theme of Lift!  As you’ve learned to expect, this is another theme that you can take into multiple directions, so let your imagination run wild and submit that, which tickles your fancy!

However for once I have chosen to be literal, so here is a picture of a lift in Carlisle castle.

And some lifting gear at New Abbey Mill.
