View from Llansteffan – #SundayStills: The Great #Outdoors

This week Teri has challenged us with:

As the first half of the year comes to an end, did you experience the great outdoors?

Some of you will have already realised I enjoy getting out into the Great outdoors as much as possible, so a shot from earlier this year, spring equinox, not the best weather, but still getting out there!

A perfect moment – Sunday Stills: #Stillness

This week Teri has challenged us with:

Stillness, our Sunday Stills theme this week, seemed appropriate during this month of June.

This was one of those perfect moments, sunset along the river Nith, a peaceful moment, a moment to reflect, a moment to take joy in being alive, a moment of clarity that can only be found when all around you is stilled.

This photo can take me right back to one such moment.

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.

Standing watching – Friday Foto Fun: Moody

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share are moody pic, poem or story?

I love moody skies, though it usually means rain is never far away, which in turn makes me moody when we are on holiday visiting ancient sites, and walking in the wilds.  So here is a moody sky for you, did it rain – probably!

Evening drama – Friday Foto Fun: Dramatic

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share something that you consider dramatic?
Whether through your lens or your creative writing …
Post a photo or get creative … stir our emotions!

Well I knew I was going to use a photo from this set for this challenge, I just had to choose one.  I have used a few photos of the River Nith before, the skys, shadows and reflections were all full of drama on our evening walks along the Nith in Glencaple last year.  It is fair to say the whole visit had quite a dramatic effect on me.

This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Sunshine’, saying:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF FIRE

Well I decided to twist the brief a little, as I was looking through the archives for ‘Fire’, I saw this photo, taken while on holiday in Cornwall some years ago.  Well the sun counts as fire does it not?

Magnificently monumental – Photo for the Week – 30 – Landscape

This weeks PFTW challenge from Bren is:

Anyway here is this week’s challenge and it is Landscape.  Your landscape can be of anything, mountains, fields, even a landscape of a field of flowers or crops.  Or it can be of anything in landscape format.  The interpretation of Landscape is entirely up to you.

I am still in the process of editing some of last years photos of our trip to the Lake district with friends.  So here is a photo of Castlerigg stone circle and the magnificent surrounding landscape.
