K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

image

For this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge,  the prompt was “Into the woods”, giving you a pretty broad theme of trees, woodlands, forests, leaves, anything arboreal in fact.

Audrey and I went out into the woods just behind our neighbourhood on Saturday and took a whole load of pictures (I shall be posting a selection of both Audrey’s and my own photos very soon) but today I thought I’d take a few of them and return to a more abstract style, by trying another collage.

I’ve called this one Woodland Cathedral, because it has the look of an enclosed yet illuminated space with a vaulted ceiling and there’s also a contemplative feeling about it.

See what you think…

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

K’LEE’S POST IS HERE – CHECK IT OUT.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

#atozchallenge: U is for Undulation…

a2z-badge_2016.jpg.jpegU is a bit of a problematic letter, there aren’t too many ways can think of to crowbar it into a post for the A-Z challenge, so I’m going to cheat.

I really like the words “undulating” and “undulation”, they are just nice, satisfying words to say. I also like the motion which they describe; “one of a series of wavelike bends, curves, or elevations”, which can be applied to the curvaceous shape of something, too.

So here are a few photos, picked from shots that I’ve taken over the years, that feature undulations of one sort or another; whether it’s in landscapes, hills, clouds, treelines, or one of my more peculiar architectural compositions…

Picture this: Moor to sea…

Yes, Spring is here and the weather is beginning to improve, which means there are suddenly a wealth of photographic possibilities out there, just waiting to be captured.

Last weekend, Audrey and I made a quick stop at Woody Bay Steam Railway, in Exmoor National Park, so I took the opportunity to snap a few pictures before we made our way back home and went for a walk (or scoot) along the river Taw estuary, where I snapped a few more.

Send in the clouds…

Third post of the day, to mark my 500 post milestone and to entice you over to Photo Sans Frontiers, my beautiful photography blog.
I’m giving you this post as a reblog from there, but please click over, just for a moment, and hit that follow button.
Thanks.

Photo Sans Frontiers

It’s been an amazing day for clouds, here in North Devon, so much so that I had to stop off on the way to and from work and capture the beginning and end of one of the sky’s best days (photography-wise) of the year so far.

I’m always being told I’m not supposed to shoot straight into the sun, but I don’t hold with any of that…

Arboretum of the imagination: Meetings with impossible trees…

Arboretum of the imagination: Meetings with impossible trees…

Here’s a little experiment to complement my post on imaginary architecture, this time applied to the sculptural beauty of trees…

Photo Sans Frontiers

Meetings with Remarkable Trees, by Thomas Pakenham, is a fabulous book and it’s where I stole the idea for the name of this post.

Other than that, there’s no connection, except for the trees, obviously…

Picture this: The promise of Spring…

For the first time this year, it finally feels like Spring has sprung and, with the second of two days of glorious sunshine this weekend, it was a perfect day for a stroll in the park.

I’d been wanting an excuse to play with my new camera anyway…

Winter wanderland…

The rest of today’s photos from my walk by the river, on Photo Sans Frontiers…

Photo Sans Frontiers

A stroll in the park, for the final day of my Christmas break, and I captured some winter trees, the riverside gulls a stunning sunset.
