Time, Landscape, Art – Friday Fun: Layers

For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

Layer upon layer, they might weave, compliment or contrast
but layers draw our attention
Whether through your lens or with creative writing … go where the prompt leads!

I sometimes feel I step back through the layers of history when I visit sites such as these, they always tend to be sited where the panorama is many layered, and they always lead me to explore the layers of my creativity.

Reborn tides and Tidal spirits – Friendly Friday: Ebb and Flow

This Friday, ‘The Snow Melts Somewhere’ and ‘Something to Ponder About’ have challenged us with:

Publish a ‘Friendly Friday – Ebb and Flow,’ post

I have used this photo before, for a different challenge, however I thought I would re-edit it, and thus this image itself takes on a certain ebb and flow as it is reborn.  A tidal river shaped by the ebb and flow of water over the years.

I thought I would also add this one, not only because it contains the ebb and flow between life and death, the humans who have been christened, married, have worshipped, and been buried here.  But also the ebb and flow of a religion, the old abbey, the ‘new’ church.

2 grey ladies – Friendly Friday: Twins

This Friday, ‘The Snow Melts Somewhere’ and ‘Something to Ponder About’ have challenged us with:

the theme for Friendly Friday this week is Twins.

There are actually more than 2 stones in this circle, but I thought this photo of two of them fit the bill.  They are made of the same things, but shaped by hands and weather so that they look different, yet still I believe they share a common purpose, they are the same inside, sisters forever standing against the rigours of the world.  Only four stones remain of what once was a 45-foot circle of stones. The stones are the tallest in Derbyshire, they are sometimes known as the grey ladies.
