The way to Boskednan – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Ground: sand, dirt, grass, paths

For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks that:

This week the topic is Ground.  Your photos can show anything that covers the ground like:  sand, dirt, grass, paths, walks, trails, etc.

So here is a picture of one of the many paths that converge on the Boskednan stone circle.

Karen – Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favorites

This weeks challenge asks:

In the final edition of the Weekly Photo Challenge, Daily Post staff contributors share their favorite photos and invite you to do the same.

Sadly this is the last “Daily post weekly photo challenge”, and therefore I will have to look elsewhere for my prompts to blog, its been fun to follow, but it is sad to see this challenge come to an end.

So a photo for all time favorites – not just a favorite photo [reworked for the competition], but a favorite location, a favorite treat, and a favorite person:

Walking among stones- Weekly Photo Challenge: I’d Rather Be…

This weeks challenge asks us:

What would you rather be doing? If you’ve got more than one hobby, don’t be shy — you’re welcome to share the myriad ways in which you’d prefer to be spending time.

So the answer could be a couple of things, taking photos, playing music, playing boardgames, editing photos, thinking, dancing, or walking among stones at West Penwith in Cornwall.

So here another two another photos of the “Nine Maidens of Boskednan” [click for larger images]

Nine Maidens of Boskednan, Boscawen-Un & St. Ives harbour at night – Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites

This weeks challenge asks us:

This week, we’re proposing something a little different to celebrate the end of the year. Instead of a specific theme or topic, we invite you to share your most meaningful photo from 2017.

So here are three photos taken from a set taken while in Cornwall in September this year.  I’ve used photos from this set before for the Weekly Challenges, but not yet got around to editing the entire set.  There was some lovey light to be found on this trip and the results are fast becoming some of my favorites from 2017.  Wishing you all a splendid new year.

St Michael’s Mount – Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

This weeks challenge asks:

This week, share a peek of something — a photo that reveals just enough of your subject to get us interested. A tantalizing detail. An unusual perspective. Compel us to click through to your post to find out more!

So here is a peek at St Michael’s Mount from Marazion, at low tide, taken after we had walked back over the causeway.

This mysterious building invites you to sail or walk across to investigate, and if you do you are greeted with a marvelous building.

Both shots taken on our recent trip to Cornwall in September, and just a sneak peek at those to be posted in the future.

Eden, Curves, Lines, Angles. – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles

A week ago today we were on holiday in Cornwall, and just about to embark on our first visit to the Eden project, surprising that we have never been given the amount of times we visit Cornwall.

Anyway we had a fabulous time, and I think this 5 photo stitch, fits the bill nicely for Cee’s brief of Lines and Angles.
