Strata – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #68 – Layers

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

This week, we invite you to explore Layers. You can include images of buildings, landscapes, seascapes, clouds, etc.

So my choices when faced with this sort of challenge are, do I find a photograph displaying many layers, maybe accentuated by depth of field, or do I layer a couple of photos up?

So while looking for a photo or photos to use, I saw a photo of some cliffs, which in turn reminded me to go and look through some photos I had taken last year.  I think this fits the bill nicely , look at all those stratigraphic layers, only accentuated by the rolling in of the sea mist adding yet another depth layer to this shot.

It will rain – Photo for the Month – 35: Moody

This Month for the Photo for the Month, Bren asks:

 This week’s challenge is Moody.

I may have previously mentioned that I love shots with moody skies.  So here is one taken from our favorite B&B window of the view over Carbis Bay, St. Ives, just after sunrise, before it started raining.

Rock and Rolling in – Tuesday Photo Challenge: Roll.

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic ‘Roll’:

Of course, after a week of Rocking entries, you fully expected that we’d Roll into this week! Yes, I gave into the temptation of using Rock and Roll in consecutive weeks. As Roll can take a number of meanings, you can roll the dice to select the one you want to use. Whether a bread roll, a bed roll, or a ball rolling down the hill, I look forward to see what wonderful ideas come rolling in this week!

So following on from the second of the two rock photos I used last week, I thought I would use another photo from that set, it includes that same rock, but this time we see more of the waves ‘roll’-ing in.

Rock face – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rock.

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic ‘Wonder’:

In case you wondered, last week’s contributions were absolutely wonderful! To put it simply: all of you Rock!! Which leads me to this week’s theme: Rock

So having a look back through some old photos I found this one.  It is a carving down on the beach in Tintagel.

And also from the same day, a favourite rock to photograph at Sandymouth bay, it would actually be quite hard not to get it in a shot.
