Stone whispering: Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest

Well this weeks challenge is Quest – Quest (noun): A long or arduous search for something.

Getting some of these to stand on end certainly took a long search for the point of balance.


This shot was taken on a visit to the National Trust Colby garden in Pembrokeshire, where we took a lovely walk down to the beach at Amroth.



camera obscura: Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror

This weeks WPC asks us to find our subject matter in mirrors and reflections.  Well first off I use a mirrorless camera, so from the outset that is one less mirror in the equation!  However this though did make me think of a recent trip to the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens near Penzance, where they have a ‘camera obscura’ which does indeed have a mirror to reflect the image produced from a periscope onto a podium for viewing.  Therefore here is my shot for this week, the reflection that the camera obscura produces.
