The Cosmic Photo Challenge: A reminder of what you’re missing.

Hi there, sorry I haven’t posted in a while, life has been a bit full and I’ve been absorbed in various other creative pursuits, the main one being audio visual in nature, about which more in the not too distant future.

But for now I’m concentrating on the purely visual arts, namely; The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For well over 200 posts now, my fellow intrepid photographic adventurers and I have challenged ourselves to come up with images themed around a weekly prompt and the results have been eye-opening, to say the least.

The creativity and talent out there in the blogosphere never ceases to amaze me and I’m very grateful to all of those who regularly take part…but I want to see more of that fantastic talent and imagination.

To that end, I’m reposting this week’s challenge here, with a few extra photos thrown in to sweeten to deal, along with ***A REALLY REALLY OBVIOUS LINK*** to The Cosmic Photo Challenge’s new home, so you can come on over and get involved.


On The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, I asked you to capture your images; On the shore.

After over 20 years living in North Devon, I finally made my first trip to a hidden Victorian gem, Tunnel Beaches in Ilfracombe.

Accessed by an unassuming white tunnel entrance just a few minutes walk from the high street, these beaches were opened in the early 1800s with the two naturally separated coves enabling ladies and gentlemen to bathe with their modesty intact. The gentlemen’s beach was in use for a wedding yesterday, so I took a stroll around the rugged landscape of the ladies beach and made a video tour, accompanied by an extract from a recently composed piece of appropriately watery ambient electronica*.

Where did your search for the water’s edge take you at the weekend? Let’s have a look at your pictures…


*{Should you wish to experience the full version of this new track, along with it’s own, strangely mesmerizing video, you can do so HERE}


To get involved with the challenge; check out the Cosmic Photo Prompt each Friday, then post a photo (or photos) on your blog the following Monday, with a pingback link to my Monday post.
