Tidal bell – Word/Photo Challenge: Unusual

For this weekends prompt GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme.

This weekend the Word/Photo Challenge from GC and me is ‘Unusual‘.

This might not be unusual to some, but I had never seen one before, not like this anyway.

Country way – Which Way Challenge: January 3rd, 2020

Each Friday San challenges us with the following:

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

Slightly scary – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: December 5th, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

Not sure which of these 3 are the scariest!

4 in a Row – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: October 24th, 2019

There was something incongruous about finding a ‘giant connect four’, in a model village that made me take a photo!

501603 – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #66 – Filling the Frame

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

This week, we invite you to explore filling the frame for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #66.  You can include images of buildings, people, objects, and/or elements from nature.  Feel free to include shots of the same subject before you filled the frame and after you filled the frame.

Well I did not even have to try to think about how I would compose this shot, as the bull decided he would fill the frame for me!  It looks a lot more scary than when I took it a minimal crop at 18mm so I was quite close!

Burial stones – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone

This week Frank challenges us with the topic:

After a week of fuzzy logic, images and beings, I thought it might be a good time to turn to something a bit more permanent. So, I cam to think of Stone as a theme

Well you could probably guess that it was going to be something like the below from me!

Wild and tame – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #64 – Countryside and/or Small Towns

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

Tina, Patti, Ann-Christine, and I [Amy] are looking forward to seeing your photos and reading stories of countryside and/or a small town.

I would say that at lest 50% of my photos could fit into this category as I live fairly rural, and my holidays usually take me to rural places, in search of ancient stones I tramp across wild open spaces, through forests, past lakes, up and down hill and mountain, and along public pathways.  Farmland and the ever patient farmers with the walkers on the land are a recurrent theme.  I live in Wales so I have access to some of the UK’s best countryside and small towns, even our big towns and cities are small :).

The countryside and our towns can be both wild and tame, so here are a few photos for you about what this means to me.
