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.
