From one end of the country to the other – Friendly Friday – Stay in your comfort zone.

This week ‘The Snow Melts Somewhere’ challenges us with:

Have you noticed how some people always urge you to come out of your comfort zone? It’s supposed to be good for you.

But sometimes all I want to do is just stay where I’m comfortable, do what I like doing. I don’t always want to leave my comfort zone!

So today’s prompt is short and sweet – yes, you guessed it: Comfort Zone.

So my first photo is of ‘Long Meg and her daughters, a stone circle in Cumbria.  Visiting stone circles and other ancient monuments can be both comfortable and uncomfortable.  But Long Meg and her daughters is definitely a space where I feel at home, recharged and within my comfort zone.  Also for double ‘comfort zone’ points this photo is a panoramic landscape made from a seven photo stitch, those of you who follow me know that taking such photos is also well within my comfort zone.  The resultant file was some 20,000 pixels in width, the resultant image has been reduced somewhat for your viewing pleasure, the site often has cows, and therefore pats, and thus flies, the shear number of little black dots to be removed was probably verging to outside my comfort zone.

My second photo is of St. Ives, taken from the comfortable zone of the cafe in the Tate art gallery.  Visiting Cornwall is well within my comfort zone.

Garden – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge 1/31/19

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.  If you have any of those type of photos, this challenge is for you.

So here is another Oddball taken for who knows what purpose.

Nash Point Mist – Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #30 – Unexpected

This week Ann-Christine, Leya hosts the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, and she asks us to post based on the following:

Did something totally unexpected happen today? Did you meet someone unexpected at the grocery store, or did you find something in an unexpected place …or, maybe You are up to something unexpected?

In August 2018 we took an unexpected visit to Nash Point, its actually not far from where we live but we had never been before. It turned out to be an unexpected magical place, and that was before the unexpected, well for us anyway, sea mist started to roll in.

St Michael’s Mount – Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

This weeks challenge asks:

This week, share a peek of something — a photo that reveals just enough of your subject to get us interested. A tantalizing detail. An unusual perspective. Compel us to click through to your post to find out more!

So here is a peek at St Michael’s Mount from Marazion, at low tide, taken after we had walked back over the causeway.

This mysterious building invites you to sail or walk across to investigate, and if you do you are greeted with a marvelous building.

Both shots taken on our recent trip to Cornwall in September, and just a sneak peek at those to be posted in the future.

Eden, Curves, Lines, Angles. – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles

A week ago today we were on holiday in Cornwall, and just about to embark on our first visit to the Eden project, surprising that we have never been given the amount of times we visit Cornwall.

Anyway we had a fabulous time, and I think this 5 photo stitch, fits the bill nicely for Cee’s brief of Lines and Angles.
