Sunset seas – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #85: Treasure Hunt

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists asks:

This week we’re going on a Treasure Hunt! The challenge is to search for specific items – either from your archives or newly captured – from the list below. Extra credit items are a bit more challenging. Focus on quality over quantity and hit us with your best shot(s)!

Challenge Items: Sunrise and/or sunset, Something cold and/or hot, a bird, a dog, a funny sign, a bicycle, a seascape and/or mountain landscape, a rainbow, a church, a musical instrument, a boat, a plane, a waterfall
Extra Credit Items: An expressive portrait of one or more people, a very unusual place, knitting or sewing, a fish, an animal you don’t normally see, a bucket, a hammer, a street performer, a double rainbow, multiple challenge items in a single image. My opening image, for example, includes a sunrise, a seascape and birds in a single shot. See how easy it is?! 😀

So here is a shot from the archives, warm sunset over a cold Cornish sea, and there might even be a hint of a boat out toward the horizon.  Taken on an old 2mp Dimage Z3, but still a lovely photo at this size I feel.  Well if I get chance this week I am going to go on a hunt for some of the other treasured items, but for now . . .

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.

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.
