River and stones – Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Revisited

For this weeks challenge Amanda asks:

This week on Friendly Friday, I am asking you to Re-visit your memories, places and experiences.

The prompt ‘Re-visiting’ might mean something entirely different. It might simply mean a return to a place, but in another time. A ‘before’ and ‘after’ photo, of a project, from start to finish, or a time warp showing changes from one decade to another. Such as revisiting the changes from baby to child or child to adult. It might even be a place you wish to re-visit one day.

The first photo is a place I have used a couple of times times this year for challenges, and I hope we will get to revisit there.

And the second is a place we almost always revisit when we go to Cornwall, at least once a year if we can.

‘At the Men-an-tol’, West Penwith, Cornwall, 2018.RevisitMT

And both photos were revisited for the purposes of this challenge, in memory, and in reworking them.

Nith again – A Photo a Week Challenge: Contrasting Colors

In this weeks challenge Nancy asks us to share a picture or two with contrasting colours.

Contrasting colors are colors that are on approximately opposite side of the color wheel. Yellow and purple, green and red, blue and orange, and a myriad of variations in-between each of those. Contrasting colors compliment each other and give interest and variety to images.

So here is a shot taken during last years visit to Dumfries and Galloway, when we went for an evening wander along the side of the river Nith, in Glencaple.  I love the way the sunset oranges contrasted against the blue still left in the sky, and threw a deeper blue cast over the landscape.

Devorgilla Bridge – Photo for the Week – 8 – Bridges

In this weeks challenge Ryan asks:

for this week’s challenge, I thought I would use ‘bridges’ as the topic for this week’s Photo for the week.

So below is a picture of Devorgilla or Old Bridge in Dumfries, taken on our trip earlier in the year.  It is a 3 photo panoramic stitch.

River Nith – A Photo a Week Challenge: Water.

In this weeks challenge Nancy asks us to:

SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT FEATURES WATER OF ANY KIND.

Those of you who follow me on FB, G+, or on this blog will have noticed the photos I have recently been posting of the River Nith in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, where we spent a holiday earlier in the year.  Each night we would return to a magnificent golden dappled water after our daily outings.

It is fair to say I fell in love with this stretch of water.
