I can almost smell it – #SundayStills: #Close-up

This week Teri  challenged us with:

Calling all photographers and creatives who really like a challenge this week! Last July 2018, I challenged Sunday Stillers to a macro-photography challenge. I thought it was time to offer another macro or close-up photography challenge this week.

Not quite as close as I sometimes get, but I just liked this the way it was.

Flowering – #SundayStills: #Yellow

This week Teri has challenged us with:

I’ve always associated the month of August with the color yellow.
You guessed it, this week’s Sunday Stills theme is anything yellow.

Plenty of yellow in this one, such a cheery happy colour, makes me smile.

Ancient triangle – #SundayStills: #Triangles

This week Teri has challenged us with:

“Triangles” is our theme this week for the Sunday Stills Photo Challenge.

I am going to claim that the Capstone of Bodowyr Burial Chamber is a triangle, or at least it looks like one, hope I get away with it :).

What a taste – #SundayStills: #Taste

This week Teri has challenged us with:

Your post does NOT have to show pictures of food! Show and tell us what “taste” means to YOU! Perhaps share your taste in books, music, fashion or media, or an image of your family enjoying a picnic.

Well I know it did not have to show a picture of food, and you did not say you couldn’t :), so on our recent holiday to Anglesey we went to the marvellous vegetarian/Vegan restaurant Jackfruit.  The main meal was fantastic, but the pudding was sublime. It was amazing and is certainly the taste I will remember for this year not just the summer!  It is going to take some beating.

So I present for you – Avocado Chocolate mousse – what a taste, fabulously rich, smooth, creamy and chocolatey.

Flutterby – #SundayStills: #Wings

This week Teri has challenged us with:

I’m choosing to add creatures with wings to my selections today, well, just because. They need to tell their stories.

So now back from the adventure that I talked about going on last week, I have a whole raft of new photos to edit.  Here is one of them.

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.

The smell of garlic – Sunday Stills: #Paths

This week in Teri is back, and  has challenged us with:

This week’s Sunday Stills theme is “paths.”

Well I have a fair few photos of paths and trails, and was looking through my archives and noticed this one.  The smell of garlic was almost tangible in the air as I looked at it!

Eggs and Onions – Sunday Stills: Unusual

This week in Teri’s absence Huw has challenged us with:

Here’s what you need to do to join this week’s Sunday Stills challenge.
Write a brand new post and share your photos, stories, poetry, or thoughts, about unusual things. What do you see or feel when in an unusual situation? Describe what’s there and tell us your thoughts when you discovered or experienced something that was unusual.

Perhaps I to have been time travelling in order to collect this shot!  Well I am not sure the dates are accurate, but even with my love of pickles, I am not sure I would risk it!
