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
For those of you who are not friends on Facebook, or GPlus here are the photos that I have been working on over the last week or so, taken on our trip last year to Cornwall. Or for those that are and just want to see them again, a link to all 285 photos in one bite sized place.
This weeks Challenge asks us:
“What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?”
So I would have to say, Landscapes or Ancient sites are probably my “Ooh, shiny!” that guarantees a moment of, “hold on, I just need to take another photo.”
So here is a shot taken earlier in the year at Tintagel, Cornwall.
Well I have nearly finished editing the last of the photos I took with the HS20exr, before I moved on to the a6000. I had a great time with the Fuji, and it taught me a lot. Sometimes I got some exceptional images with this small sensor camera. Gone but not forgotten the camera has passed into the hands of Karen who I am sure will put it to the test. So I thought I would share another photo from that trusty old friend before I move on to sifting through the photos I have begun to take with the Sony. So here is a view from Beaumaris pier:
