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.

A photo from the archives this week, reworked for this challenge.  A summers day out on the Gower in Wales, as even though spring has just arrived I am dreaming of summer days out.

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.

Penmon Dreams – Friendly Friday – Dreamy

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

Since my blog’s tagline is Stories and dreamy images, I’ve given myself permission to dream a bit when I blog. Let’s forget about all the worries in the world and daydream… Let your mind wander. Where does it go? What do you dream of?

Today’s theme for the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge is Dreamy.

So here are a couple of photos taken this year at Penmon point which I feel have a dreamy quality, the first is a 5 photo stitch landscape, which by now some of you will know I am quite fond of producing.

And the second a dreamy picture of the light house.

And just because I noticed it in my media folder as I was looking to upload the two above, a bonus shot I have used before taken while walking alongside the river Nith.

And just because the above seem to be all about watery dreams –

“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
