Evening stones – Which Way Challenge: September 20th, 2019

First of all a big thank you to San at ‘Alive and Trekking‘ who has taken over the hosting of this challenge from sonofabeach96 who has been at the helm for some time now.  Each Friday Sam will now challenge us with the following:

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

For this first week with Sam at the helm I thought I would choose a photo from my archives, those of you who follow me know from recent posts I may have been perusing some old photos recently.  Well this one drew my attention,  I am going to go out on a limb and say it has 3 ways! A path to and through the stones for the modern visitor, the road way that runs along side, visible by its hedgerow, and maybe just a glimpse of the sacred ancient way!

Once a parsnip – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: September 5th, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

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.

Yes I took a photo of a squashed parsnip I found in the road, why?

Somewhere in France – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Roads: country, freeways, streets

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of ‘Roads’.

The following shot was taken when we were returning from a festival in France where my band had been playing.  It is actually a street in Amiens, I am not sure what made me go looking for this photo for this challenge, I just happened to like it I guess.

Linear imposition – Friendly Friday – Contrasts.

This week Amanda challenges us with:

This week on Friendly Friday Photography Challenge, I am asking you to create a post on “contrasts.

So I have chosen to use another photo of ‘Long Meg and her daughters’, this time for two reasons.  I like the contrast in this photo of the ‘linear’ being imposed on the ‘circular’, that is the ‘modern’ road being driven through the ‘ancient’ stone circle.  I also just like the visual contrast in this image the highlights and shadows of the sky.

Snow Way – Which Way Challenge: February 7, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

So here is a photo I took last week while out walking in the snow.

The road to Sunkenkirk -A Photo a Week Challenge: Vanishing Point

In this weeks challenge Nancy asks us:

A vanishing point, also known as the point of convergence, is a key element in many works of art. Think of the vanishing point is the spot on the horizon line where the other lines diminish. It allows us to a create three-dimensional look in drawings, paintings, and photographs.

When shooting perspective images, sometimes the vanishing point visible. Sometimes it’s not, as in my image. The curve of the vanishing point gives you the feeling that you know what is just beyond the bend in the road.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) THAT FEATURE A VANISHING POINT.

So here are two images of the road to Sunkenkirk/Swinside Stone circle, taken on our visit to the Lake district in October 2018.
