Nith, Sun and Water – A Photo a Week Challenge: Sun & Water.

This week  Nancy has challenged us with the following:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) THAT FEATURES THE SUN AND WATER TOGETHER.

I have shared quite a few photos from our trip to Dumfries and Galloway last year, the light and the sunsets over the river Nith were exceptional.  Just looking at these shots takes me right back to those warm evening walks.  So here is another shot reworked for this challenge.

Spout – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: July 04, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

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.

Sol rises – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sunrise

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic ‘Sunrise’:

This week’s theme is another instance of surprised that I haven’t used this theme before! While Morning has been a theme, Sunrise has not been used yet. As I always look for the themes to be accessible to everyone, I figured that the Sun is available to most of us, Earthlings. Of course, it does happen early in the day, so night owls might be disadvantaged, but I’m sure their creative minds can come up with a workaround for rising early!

Well this first shot is taken off the sunrise over Carbis bay, St. Ives, from the bedroom window of Coast B&B were we stay when we visit.  I woke up, could not get back to sleep, too much rich food before retiring, so got up and looked out the window, where I was greeted with this magnificent sunrise.

I mentioned in my Sunday stills post this week that each year we aim to go out and greet the returning sun at winter solstice.  So here is another image taken up on the common as we do just that.

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.

Good morning sunshine – Sunday Stills – Daylight.

This week Teri has challenged us with:

DAYLIGHT is this week’s theme for Sunday Stills.

Each winter solstice we go out and greet the rising sun, we make the transition from almost darkness to daylight, passing through that liminal space in-between.

Some years we feel, rather than see the Daylight.

And some years we see Daylight arrive in all its glory.
