One liner Wednesday: Alternative dictionary.

Today’s alternative definition has a distinctly male slant to it;

“Baltic” – An involuntary protective flinch, prompted by the threat of groin injury from any number of sources. (leaping pets, small children’s heads, sports, etc)

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Rather daringly, I set the theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week with hopes that the English weather would cooperate and gave you the prompt; Low light.

If I had been imagining nice twilight shots of dusky sunsets and the gauzy loveliness of early morning mist, I would have been disappointed. But I’m a realist, so it didn’t surprise me at all when I left the house yesterday afternoon at 4 and it immediately started to rain.

But I was out by then, so I took a soggy stroll along the river in the park and managed to capture a few half decent images of a grey winter’s day.

Of course, by the time I got home it had stopped raining, so when it was properly dark I did some mucking about, using long exposures and the mood lighting in the garden.

*Edit: Because it annoys me that the weather was typically pleasant today, now we’re all back at work, here are the sort of photos I was hoping to capture yesterday, from earlier this evening. ;~}

So, what did all you bright sparks find to illuminate the darkness at the weekend?

Come on, don’t be shy, we all want to see…

Just about made it for a Friday prompt on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, albeit with only an hour to spare.

So I’ll make it quick and wish you goodnight.

What I’d like you to capture is something which embodies the theme; Low light.

Have a great weekend, see you on Monday.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Happy Monday, y’all, welcome to a hue-heavy edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I hope you are suitably rested for the week ahead and enjoyed your time off.

But before the tedious business of work gets in the way again, let’s get to the important stuff

With barely a break in the grim and miserable weather at the weekend, I had to rely on a few shots I took on last week’s walk, reedited to fit the prompt; A splash of colour.

What coloured your world this week? Time to show us whatcha got…

An especially wet, grey and uninspiring start to the weekend makes me want to set a simple, bright and cheerful theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge today, so I’m going to ask for your contributions to once again feature; A Splash of colour.

Not much explanation required for that one, so just have fun with it and I’ll see you on Monday.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

When I set the theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge on Friday, I was fully expecting to have a couple of frosty mornings to go with the prompt; The first breath of Winter.

But as usual the English weather didn’t cooperate, (not that I’m complaining on this occasion) and yesterday was a lovely sunny day to take a walk along the opposite side of the River Taw for a change.

I followed the Tarka Trail cycle path, under the tall road bridge I walked over two weeks ago, down to the flood plain, where the receding tide and calm water made for some excellent reflections.

What did you find to impress us with at the weekend? Come on, it’s time to show ‘n’ tell…

Another week has flown by and it’s once again time to provide you with your theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I know we only covered autumnal images recently, but I’m setting today’s prompt because I’ve already detected; The first breath of Winter.

{I know, I know, some of you are in the topsy turvy land of almost-Summer, in which case you may wish to illustrate that particular seasonal transition instead}

Wherever you are, I hope you have a great weekend and we’ll all meet back here on Monday for a photographic get together, ok?
