Cornwall – FRIENDLY FRIDAY PHOTO CHALLENGE – Inspiration.

This week The ‘Friendly Friday Photo Challenge‘ asks us:

I’d love to see (and hear) your tips for staying creative. What do you do when you lose your mojo, how do you get it back? What inspires you to blog, make photos, write stories, paint? Tell your story with a photo.

Those of you who follow my blog will know there are a lot of photos of Cornwall.  It is not simply that we like holidaying in Cornwall, it is an inspirational place, and our batteries recharge while we are there.

For WordPress Challenges where possible I always like to use photos from the current set I am working on – the inner challenge – not always possible, but in this case I do happen to be editing a set of pictures from our trip to Cornwall in September.  So here are a couple for you.

Nine Maidens of Boskednan, Boscawen-Un & St. Ives harbour at night – Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites

This weeks challenge asks us:

This week, we’re proposing something a little different to celebrate the end of the year. Instead of a specific theme or topic, we invite you to share your most meaningful photo from 2017.

So here are three photos taken from a set taken while in Cornwall in September this year.  I’ve used photos from this set before for the Weekly Challenges, but not yet got around to editing the entire set.  There was some lovey light to be found on this trip and the results are fast becoming some of my favorites from 2017.  Wishing you all a splendid new year.

Carbis & Zennor: Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

This weeks Challenge asks us to post a photo of a place with ambience.

So here are two photos taken during last years visit to Cornwall (which is the series of photos I am currently working on).  The first exploring ambience created by light, the second exploring, and I am going to be unashamedly hippy about this – the vibe of the place.

THE DAILY POST WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: HAPPY PLACE

The challenge set this week is to post a picture of your Happy place – “Where do you go when you need to think? What do you do when you need to restore yourself, to ready yourself to take on the coming week with energy and verve? How do you get your sense of humor back? How do you recharge your groove?”

Those of you who know me, or just follow me here may guess what my picture will be of this week – Cornwall, Wales, Ancient sites, the Sea, the Forests, the Mountains, Dancing, Music, Spirituality, Love, Karen.  Any one of those help me through the daily grind and inspire the creativity within.

So what will I choose from these words?

This is taken at St Ives, Cornwall, looking out to the sea, at the liminal space between day and night, the land and sea, the ancient and the more recent.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Roadscapes – As I was going to St. Ives

Well I have been rather busy of late, and thus I’ve had little time to blog.  So for a first image of 2015 one of my favorite places on this planet – St. Ives.  It just so happens it’s of a little back road at night, and so eligible for Cee’s Black & White Challenge “Roadscapes” this week.DSC00943edit-Editedit
