This weeks challenge asks for pictures of Surprise, so here are two taken on the way back from N.Wales yesterday. A surprise visit to Stokesay Castle, a maybe not so surprising fiend to find on a window ledge, and a surprising Lady.

This weeks challenge is to provide a photo that evokes solitude.
Here is a photo taken last year of the Mên Scryfa in Cornwall, a stone alone, stood in its own field. To look at it in isolation you would find it in its place of solitude, however widen your vision and its place within the prehistoric landscape becomes apparent.
We can all be alone, seek our places of solitude, and retreat, yet we are all connected. Just as the ancients might have envisaged a network of power stretching between these places, so to in these times we need to remember that although we can feel that we stand in solitude, our networks physical and virtual are greater than they once were. Our combined thought can achieve great things.
This weeks Challenge asks us to post a photo of a place with ambience.
So here are two photos taken during last years visit to Cornwall (which is the series of photos I am currently working on). The first exploring ambience created by light, the second exploring, and I am going to be unashamedly hippy about this – the vibe of the place.
