This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Sunshine’, saying:
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF SUNSHINE
So a few photos where the sunshine could have made, or broke the photos. Shooting into the sun, sometimes you just have to do it.
‘Italianate’, Dyffryn Gardens, 2016.
‘Hazy sun’, Dartmoor, 2015.
‘Chun entrance’, Chun castle, 2015.
This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:
Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own row post.
I thought I would use another ancient monument this week, no surprises there I hear some of you shout! I don’t think I have used this location for a challenge before though, and it seemed very fitting for this one.
On Dartmoor there are many stone rows, this one is part of the ‘Merrivale complex‘ of ancient sites. It is a double row, for an added bonus for this weeks challenge I feel.
‘Moor lines’, Merrivale stone rows, Dartmoor, 2015.
For this Sunday’s trees challenge from Becca I thought I would choose a photo taken last year in Fernworthy forest on Dartmoor.
‘Looking up’, Fernworthy, Dartmoor, 2018.
For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks:
This week the topic is Anything Construction Related. This topic is quite huge. See if any of you can come up with something way out of the box.
So my first photo is of an ancient roundhouse at Grimspound on Dartmoor.
‘Ancient Construction’, Grimspound, Dartmoor, 2015.
The second is of what a completed roundhouse may have looked like.
‘Roundhouse’, Lower Merrypit farm, Dartmoor, 2014.
And finally as far out of the box as my thinking would take me, a photo of the room where my band Kantref recorded our album. If you try hard enough you can see the notes floating in the air, the music and album are under construction, the photo taken at a moment when the construction workers have downed tools for a cup of tea.
‘Music Construction’, Old Schoolhouse, 2014.
In this weeks challenge Nancy asks us:
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF NATURE.
I am currently working on a set of photos taken on Dartmoor in June 2018, so here are a couple of shots of Kestor rock, and of nature showing us just how magnificently monumental it can be.
In this weeks challenge Dutch goes the Photo! asks:
There are many times when a gentle touch works better than a sledgehammer, or when a gentle breeze is welcomed to relieve us from the heat. Accept this challenge and unleash your gentle current of creative flux to come up with some apt images and posts! I am curious to see what you will create this week!
So I am currently working on a set of pictures from a visit to Dartmoor in June last year – this is a 3 photo stitch of the most graceful stream, flowing under a simple bridge, in a gentle land, near Scorhill stone circle. Dartmoor is not an area I usually think of as “gentle”, but on this day, at this time, and in this place it was.
In this weeks challenge Bren asks:
For this week’s challenge, I thought I would choose the subject of Textures. . . Your images can be images that show texture or an image where you’ve added a textured overlay. It doesn’t matter, just as long as we can see the texture.
So below is a picture of Scorhill stone circle, taken on our trip earlier to Dartmoor, a series of photos I am long overdue editing. It is a 2 photo panoramic stitch, and has been layered up with quite a few textures.
Well I have finally finished editing the pictures taken on our holiday to Dartmoor in July 2015. Below is one of my favorites from the series.
For those of you who are not friends on facebook you can find the other photos here – Dartmoor July 2015, where you will find photos of ancient monuments, national trust properties, flowers, landscapes, and much more.
Cee’s B&W challenge this week is that of ‘Perspective’, so here is a shot taken in the gardens of Coleton Fishacre during our July trip to Dartmoor and the surrounding area. This is one of those photos that just happened, and I am not at all sure why I walked into the centre of all this bamboo and took it, but I am glad I did.
