Lined Up – Weekly Prompts: Line-up

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

The Saturday photo challenge here on Weekly Prompts is Line-up.

Lots of possibilities here – Line em up and shoot em… photographs that is!

Line-up – The cast of a theatrical show, a list of players in a sports event, a queue, a row. But You don’t need us to help you out, GC and I are certain you’ll have plenty of ideas of your own so we’ll leave you to it.

The first – two stones that are part of a stone row, a line, lined up, but also lines that go up.

The second – A slightly cheeky entrant of a line that is up!

And finally the third – the Up line from St. Ives to Carbis bay.

Antidote – Friendly Friday Photography Challenge – Blue

This Friday we are challenged with:

Interpret the word, ‘Blue,’ however you like and make a Friendly Friday post.

It is fair to say that I have had one of ‘those’ years! It has been hard, but there have been a lot of positives to come out of the struggles.  I have spent a lot of time feeling blue, however a trip here, both to the place in question and to blog, is always a pick me up!

It will rain – Photo for the Month – 35: Moody

This Month for the Photo for the Month, Bren asks:

 This week’s challenge is Moody.

I may have previously mentioned that I love shots with moody skies.  So here is one taken from our favorite B&B window of the view over Carbis Bay, St. Ives, just after sunrise, before it started raining.

Holiday tree – Sunday Trees – 385

For this Sunday’s trees challenge from Becca I thought I would use this tree.  It is the tree that stands outside ‘Coast B&B’ in Cornwall, which is where we stay when we visit.  When we draw back the curtains in the morning this tree, along with the view over Carbis bay are the first things seen, and as generally we will be there over a weekend, it therefore means that when on holiday this is quite often a ‘Sunday tree’.

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.
