Across – Which Way Challenge: April 4, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

So here is a photo taken at the Holehird gardens in the Lake district, of a meandering path that leads off the main route.

Sticky – Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic

This weeks WordPress photo challenge is that of ‘Monochromatic’, I think this fits the bill nicely.

It is a picture of a Stick insect that was living on a large plant at ‘Glendurgan’ gardens Cornwall, we were only alerted to its presence by the sign nearby, which asked, can you find the family of stick insects. Apparently they have been residents of the garden for a long while.Sticky
