Days out – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #39 – Hello April

This week it is Amy’s turn to challenge us with:

Look forward to seeing and reading your “Hello April” interpretation. It can be a change of seasons in your part of the world or a wrap-up of the previous season or month.

Well what an interesting topic!  In the end after much deliberation I have chosen to use a photo from the very end of last April, mainly because I liked it.  So now I have to convince you why it fits the brief.

Well March and April are the months we first start venturing out to visit places, and my years snapping begins in earnest again.  So this photo represents one of the first places we had a ‘day out’ to visit last year.  April might be where the fun begins, spring has begun to spring, and in my part of the world the nights have just got a whole lot lighter with the clocks going forward.  Daylight hours are getting noticeably longer, and therefore so to the chance to get out and enjoy ourselves, though the threat of rain is ever present, but when is it not in the UK.

At home it becomes time to maybe get out and do some gardening, ours is nowhere near as big as the one below, though it is still big enough to be a challenge.  So I am hoping the photo below can sum up some of the thoughts above.

Moose: Weekly Photo Challenge: Look up

Here is my entry for this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge with the challenge of Look Up.

This is another photo taken on our recent trip to Tyntesfield, taken in the main house, on entering the billiard room I chanced to ‘Look up’ and saw this majestic, yet sadly stuffed fellow above me.


Lettuces and Waterlilies: Weekly Photo Challenge: Curve

Well its been around 3 months since my last blog post here – In my defense I have been moving house, with therefore little time to edit photo’s, couple that with a number of great gigs for the band and the time has just been vanishing.

The move came quite unexpectedly, we had all but given up after the previous years failures, the out of the blue came a new house, and before we new it, we had bought it – quite a Curve ball.

Anyway since I have been away for so long, and this weeks WP challenge is that of ‘Curve‘ here are two photos taken on a recent day out to Tyntesfield.
