Fiery flower – One word Sunday Challenge: Fire

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own fire post.

So here is my take for this week, I might have called it ‘burning bee’ but thought it might scare people off looking 🙂

‘Fiery flower’, Dunster, 2019.


Llandovery way – Which Way Challenge: July 04, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way 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.

Under Yellow skies – Weekly Prompts: Yellow

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Yellow’ as the theme for their challenge.

This weekend your Saturday Photo Challenge is Yellow.
At the start of 2019, GC and I introduced a monthly colour challenge, and for the month of May we have opted for the colour YELLOW.
During the early 1970s, those of you old enough to remember will know that yellow was a popular colour choice for home decor. Like most things from that era, the colour has made a modern day comeback. These days instead of teaming up with purple (my questionable choice back then), the colour is more likely to be found toned down slightly, and nestling comfortably alongside grey.

Well for my first photo I went with a very predictable Yellow flower, I love yellow and green together.

I also love purple, and as Sue mentioned purple, I happen to like purple paired with green!  however Sue’s 70’s preference was yellow and purple, so here is a photo taken this week when we visited Laugharne, looking out across the water from Dylan Thomas’ Boathouse.

Alas I feel I have captured more of the 80’s in the above though.  We also had a purple room in the 70’s, Deep royal purple! and to go with it a feature wall which had wood panel effect wall paper, all very classy!

We lying by seasand.

We lying by seasand, watching yellow
And the grave sea, mock who deride
Who follow the red rivers, hollow
Alcove of words out of cicada shade,
For in this yellow grave of sand and sea
A calling for colour calls with the wind
That’s grave and gay as grave and sea
Sleeping on either hand.
The lunar silences, the silent tide
Lapping the still canals, the dry tide-master
Ribbed between desert and water storm,
Should cure our ills of the water
With a one-coloured calm;
The heavenly music over the sand
Sounds with the grains as they hurry
Hiding the golden mountains and mansions
Of the grave, gay, seaside land.
Bound by a sovereign strip, we lie,
Watch yellow, wish for wind to blow away
The strata of the shore and drown red rock;
But wishes breed not, neither
Can we fend off rock arrival,
Lie watching yellow until the golden weather
Breaks, O my heart’s blood, like a heart and hill.

– Dylan Thomas


Flowers and sky – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue and Yellow

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee asks:

This week the topic is Blue and Yellow.   I would prefer if your photos of blue and yellow in them.  If you don’t find that combination, you can use either color, just make sure that color is prominent. Feel free to use your photo archives and see what photos you have that fits the current week’s challenge, or even better yet grab you camera and take a new photo! ENJOY and have FUN.

So I had a couple of images in mind, and a trip into the archives resulted in the following photos that I reworked for the challenge.  The first of Gorse against a Blue sky in Cornwall sometime in 2015 with the a6000.

The next two are of a rapeseed field at Merthyr Mawr sometime in 2012 taken on the old Fuji HS20.
