In, behind, illuminated – A Photo a Week Challenge – Unexpected Windows

This weeks challenge from Nancy is:

Have you ever walked pass an opening in a wall or barrier and suddenly an amazing view opened up? I love unexpected windows. It’s like viewing a whole different world, even if it’s your own backyard through your backdoor.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) USING AN UNUSUAL WINDOW.

So the first is unusual only because I was not expecting to take it.

The second, a baby seagull sheltering against the window, an unexpected view through the glass.

And finally, hopefully you will let me get away with this one, a photo of the light falling on my wife from the circular opening in the ceiling of the underground elliptical domed chamber ‘Tewlwolow Kernow’ by James Turrell Ra.

BANG – CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE: METAL AND WOOD

Once again it is far to long since I have posted here, ‘real’ life once again imposing on fun.  However I have been working on some photos of our holiday in Dartmoor in July 2015, those of you who follow me on Facebook have been bombarded by these recently.  So when I saw Cee’s title of Metal and Wood I knew just the picture I wanted to use.BANG
