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’.

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.

This week, while Terri Webster Schrandt continues her blogging break. Hugh is once again, hosting Sunday Stills. This week he asks:
Write a brand new post and share your photos, stories, poetry, or thoughts, about the night.
So here is a photo from a recent trip to Cornwall, walking home after an evening in St. Ives.
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.
