May day with Arthur – One word Sunday Challenge: Size

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 size post.

Well I tend to play with ‘size’ or ‘scale’ in a lot of my photographic compositions, and quite often ‘size’ is just apparent, so what photo should I use?  How about this. . .

Nuts – One word Sunday Challenge: Aerial

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 aerial post.

Not quite in focus, and therefore why it has languished unedited for so long, however I felt it could be pressed into service for this challenge.

In the spaces in between – One word Sunday Challenge: Power

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 power post.

Some of you you may have guessed by now that I feel an immense sense of power, emanating from the earth when I visit these old stones, often in lonely places, on moors.

Visible – One word Sunday Challenge: Pollution

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 pollution post.

I could not bring myself to post a picture of rubbish, litter, fly tipping, a dump, plastic at the beach, chemical scum on water, factories discharging waste into a river or sky, or any of the other pollutants I have encountered.  It is much to sunny a May morning for that, however it is important that we do think of these things, keep them at the forefront of our mind, and work out what part we can play in reducing the  impact of pollution that we have caused.  To be brutal and blunt about it, we should be worried, maybe not for the planet she will ‘probably’ survive in some form or another, and maybe some people do not care for the flora and fauna we are loosing at an alarming rate.  No what we should make people aware of, that will perhaps bring it home to them is that it will directly affect their health, some of us, and maybe some readers may suffer ill health or even die as a direct result of our monstrously pollutant ways, and are doing so already, and have been for some time.

Well with that sad start to a post . . . I decided to use a photo of pollution that is largely invisible, rearing its ugly head only when the sun has set, appearing to frustrate the photographer, sky watcher, ghost hunter, twitcher and astronomer alike: Light Pollution.  Although sometimes the photographer can use this to their benefit, many are the times that it has affected my sleep!

High on a hill – One word Sunday Challenge: Tower

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome back to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own tower post.

We had been shopping in Booths, Ulverston, while on holiday in the Lake district,  on our way to visit a stone circle, wo popped in to buy some lunch.  We came out after having spent more than we bargained for, mainly due to the two bottles of gin!  Looking across the car park we saw this tower on the hill opposite.  We really should visit it one day!
