Way over – Which Way Challenge: January 17th, 2020

Each Friday San challenges us with the following:

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs. There’s no topic to this challenge. All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.

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.

Elements – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #47 – Five Elements

This week we are challenged us with:

This week you have an opportunity to interpret metal, wood, water, fire, and/or earth with your favorite photos to express “…the only home we’ve ever known”. Feel free to choose one, two… or all five elements.

Ok so I had a think about how I might manage to get away with one photo for this weeks challenge, but try as I might I only managed three or four of the Chinese elements in one photo.

Oh well, so I have decided to use a photo taken at Sandymouth bay in Cornwall, I have used this location before for some posts, it is very photogenic, especially at sunset.  So here is the photo and a short explanation.

‘Elements’, Sandymouth bay, 2017.Elements

So the sun as Fire, the sea and waterfall as Water, the cliffs, pebbles and sand count as the Earth.  Now this is where it gets a bit hazy!  The camera used to take the photo has metal components, and I know that that pebble beach has driftwood on it, you just cannot see it in this photo.  Can I get away with that?

Transition – Weekly Photo Challenge : Falling Water

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:

Photograph Falling Water

Ok, there is some falling water in this photo, but maybe not as much as there should be :), please forgive me, this photo is mainly the outcome of water that has fallen into another body of water, and the drop at the top is in transition between rising and falling, so I may just get away with bending the brief this week.

2 Wonders in one – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wonder

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

I have never used Wonder as a theme either! Whether you want to feature the Wonders of Nature, the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World or make us wonder what you may have photographed, there are plenty of directions for you to take this theme! And, of course, I expect all of your ideas to be wonderful!!

It will be of no surprise that I am probably going to use a photo of a stone circle for this challenge, full of mystery and wonder.  How did they get there? What were they built for?

So which to choose?  Well it had to be Stonehenge really for a challenge entitled wonder,  it is not my favourite stone circle, but it would certainly be the first circle that entered many peoples minds. So off I went looking for a photo to use, and I found this one.

Previously unedited for the very reason that it works so well for this challenge,  we have the ancient wonder of Stonehenge, and the modern wonder of water on tap. I like the juxtaposition here of monument and sprinkler hose, maybe it is to remind us that just as the monuments meaning faded away, so too perhaps could our natural resource of water if misused, leaving the hose and sprinkler a wonder for future generations.
