Down in the woods – Friendly Friday: Photo walk

This Friday Something to Ponder About and The Snow Melts Somewhere have challenged us with:

It’s Friendly Friday again and the theme for this week is Photo Walk.

What catches your eye?

A walk down in our local woods always means there is a photo opportunity. So here are a few shots to give you a feel for what catches my eye, when there are no stone circles, ancient monuments, vast open landscapes, or cats to be found.

Sol rises – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sunrise

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic ‘Sunrise’:

This week’s theme is another instance of surprised that I haven’t used this theme before! While Morning has been a theme, Sunrise has not been used yet. As I always look for the themes to be accessible to everyone, I figured that the Sun is available to most of us, Earthlings. Of course, it does happen early in the day, so night owls might be disadvantaged, but I’m sure their creative minds can come up with a workaround for rising early!

Well this first shot is taken off the sunrise over Carbis bay, St. Ives, from the bedroom window of Coast B&B were we stay when we visit.  I woke up, could not get back to sleep, too much rich food before retiring, so got up and looked out the window, where I was greeted with this magnificent sunrise.

I mentioned in my Sunday stills post this week that each year we aim to go out and greet the returning sun at winter solstice.  So here is another image taken up on the common as we do just that.

And then secondly it may come as no surprise to those of you that follow my blog that we would live in Cornwall given half the chance.  And therefore here is an early evening picture of St. Ives.

Not quite a selfie – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Isolated objects

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Isolated objects’.

So I am going to cheat a bit here because I like the photo, it was taken in 2009 by my wife.  I enjoy the isolated feel you get walking in the countryside, and I also enjoy the way the object – myself, has been isolated in this shot.  I also enjoy how much younger I look 10 years ago if I am honest :).

When the snow came – Photo for the Week – 28 – Winter

This weeks PFTW challenge from Bren is – Winter.  So here are two photos from last year when we had a pretty heavy snow fall (for around here).  This is by the time it had started to thaw a bit, the difference between elevation of the two photos is not that great really but enough that the temperature and difference in the depth of the drifts was!

Power Up – Weekly Prompts – Photo Challenge Up

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Up’ as the theme for their challenge.

I don’t play as many computer games as I once did, however given the topic for this weeks challenge I wanted to find a photo to fit my chosen title.  A delve into the archives turned this ‘up’.

Wood way – Which Way Challenge: February 14, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way 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.

So here is a photo I took back in 2015 when we went for an after dinner walk in the woods.  Here we stand at a crossroads wondering which path to take.
