Solstice Sunrise revisited – Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

This weeks challenge is to:

share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors, we welcome your takes on the theme!

So here is another photo taken at the winter solstice 2016, up on the local common.

IvyNow I have finally got the laptop back, photo editing can again begin in earnest, therefore I thought I would show you two photos from a recently finished set entitled ‘Down in the woods‘.

We are lucky enough to have a lovely wooded area behind our house, even though we have to live close to the city.  This closeness to the natural world makes the 9-5 grind bearable.  And so one day in April earlier this year we went for a walk down in the woods, both armed with our cameras, to see the bluebells before they all wilted.

WhitebellsWe also hoped to see the highland cows who are residents down there, but alas they remained aloof. I took a fair few photos as is always the case, elongating a half hour walk into probably more like an hour and a half, but was pleased with most of the shots.  So here are two for you ‘Black’ and ‘White’

The entire set of photos may be viewed here.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Roadscapes – As I was going to St. Ives

Well I have been rather busy of late, and thus I’ve had little time to blog.  So for a first image of 2015 one of my favorite places on this planet – St. Ives.  It just so happens it’s of a little back road at night, and so eligible for Cee’s Black & White Challenge “Roadscapes” this week.DSC00943edit-Editedit
