From one end of the country to the other – Friendly Friday – Stay in your comfort zone.

This week ‘The Snow Melts Somewhere’ challenges us with:

Have you noticed how some people always urge you to come out of your comfort zone? It’s supposed to be good for you.

But sometimes all I want to do is just stay where I’m comfortable, do what I like doing. I don’t always want to leave my comfort zone!

So today’s prompt is short and sweet – yes, you guessed it: Comfort Zone.

So my first photo is of ‘Long Meg and her daughters, a stone circle in Cumbria.  Visiting stone circles and other ancient monuments can be both comfortable and uncomfortable.  But Long Meg and her daughters is definitely a space where I feel at home, recharged and within my comfort zone.  Also for double ‘comfort zone’ points this photo is a panoramic landscape made from a seven photo stitch, those of you who follow me know that taking such photos is also well within my comfort zone.  The resultant file was some 20,000 pixels in width, the resultant image has been reduced somewhat for your viewing pleasure, the site often has cows, and therefore pats, and thus flies, the shear number of little black dots to be removed was probably verging to outside my comfort zone.

My second photo is of St. Ives, taken from the comfortable zone of the cafe in the Tate art gallery.  Visiting Cornwall is well within my comfort zone.

    1. Thank you – for some reason my ping back went awry last week – and I linked to a random google search!, hence you are probably only seeing this now, at the same time as I put up my entrant for this weeks challenge – ah well better late …
