Shiny waters – Weekly Photo Challenge: Ooh, Shiny!

This weeks Challenge asks us:

“What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?”

So I would have to say, Landscapes or Ancient sites are probably my “Ooh, shiny!” that guarantees a moment of, “hold on, I just need to take another photo.”

So here is a shot taken earlier in the year at Tintagel, Cornwall.

Shipshape – Weekly Photo Challenge: Textures

This weeks Challenge asks us to:

“focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame.”

So here is a shot taken during our visit to the Viking Ship Museum at Roskilde, during our recent trip to Copenhagen.

A memory for the future – Weekly Photo Challenge: Friend

This weeks WPC asks that “This week, share an image of a friend. As always, we look forward to your contributions!”.

I did think of sharing an image of our cats, as a lot of you have shared images of your pets.  But as we have just been for a break in Copenhagen, and I am at present working on those photos, what better than a picture of friends on holiday together, memories to look back on.

Solstice Sunrise revisited – Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

This weeks challenge is to:

share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors, we welcome your takes on the theme!

So here is another photo taken at the winter solstice 2016, up on the local common.
