This weeks Challenge asks us:
“What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?”
So I would have to say, Landscapes or Ancient sites are probably my “Ooh, shiny!” that guarantees a moment of, “hold on, I just need to take another photo.”
So here is a shot taken earlier in the year at Tintagel, Cornwall.
For those of you who do not follow me on Facebook or G+ here are some links to the two albums I have recently been working on.
Cornwall July 2016 – 213 photos
Finch Foundry – 15 photos
This weeks challenge is to provide a photo that evokes solitude.
Here is a photo taken last year of the Mên Scryfa in Cornwall, a stone alone, stood in its own field. To look at it in isolation you would find it in its place of solitude, however widen your vision and its place within the prehistoric landscape becomes apparent.
We can all be alone, seek our places of solitude, and retreat, yet we are all connected. Just as the ancients might have envisaged a network of power stretching between these places, so to in these times we need to remember that although we can feel that we stand in solitude, our networks physical and virtual are greater than they once were. Our combined thought can achieve great things.
For this weeks WPC we were asked to: share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting.
So here is a panorama landscape taken last weekend at the Long Man of Wilmington.
Well I have been a bit busy lately, busy at work, busy at the weekends, so here is an image that makes me feel nice and calm.
This photo belongs to a series I took when the band played at Bakewell day of dance. The rest of the photos can be viewed at the – Bakewell day of dance album.
