Good morning, welcome to a new week and a new edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge. I hope your weekend weather wasn’t all that helpful to you for Friday’s prompt, since the theme I set you was; Rainy days, but chances are, if you’re in the UK anyway, you will have got plenty of
As it was, I set the prompt when it was raining and then, typically, the sun came out. But I didn’t have long to wait until the next shower, downpour or clap of thunder came along, because it has been a pretty wet and windy couple of days.
So I had no problem capturing some before, during and after images of the rain to illustrate today’s post; starting with two shots taken on Exmoor as I drove back from Bristol airport, just after sunrise yesterday, where I was dropping off a friend from America who was visiting for Audrey’s birthday.
The first shows the sun shining through the clouds, looking back the way I’d come, the second is of the weather system building up over the river estuary in the distance, where I was heading home.
By the time I got back home, the black clouds were already heavy and it wasn’t long before they unburdened themselves over us…
…but, in between the deluges, I caught the reflection of a tree and a rare glimpse of some blue sky in a sedum leaf.
Due to some miscommunication between K’lee and myself, we appear to have both posted prompts without the other knowing about it, so why not pop over to K’lee’s place to see what he made of his prompt; Living in the Light.
I assure you that normal service will be resumed next week.
But now you can shower us with your offerings.
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, 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.
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.
