The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I decided to go wild for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, capturing photos to match the theme In bloom on the country lanes just outside Barnstaple.

How did your hunt for floral beauty go this week..?

Your mission for this week’s adventure on The Cosmic Photo Challenge was to find signs of; New life emerging.

I once again headed out into the woods at Arlington Court and took so many photos that I had to add most of them to an overspill post which you can find here.

Although many of the trees are still waiting to burst into leaf, the green carpet of regeneration is visible almost everywhere you look, from ferns growing on branches to moss and lush grasses on the riverbanks.

I also put together a very peaceful and relaxing video tour of the woods, without any fancy effects, music or snazzy editing, so you can take a deep breath and spend three minutes listening to the birds and drinking in the sunshine of the Devon countryside.

A cremation urn with the inscription “Here lies Rosalie Caroline Chichester of Arlington 1865 – 1949” overlooks the ornamental lake.

Where did you see the green shoots of new life over Easter?

Hello there, it’s Monday again which means it’s time for your weekly round up of our intrepid photo-bloggers’ exploits in the land of The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s mission, assuming you decided to accept it, you were instructed to capture the likenesses of things; Before the leaves.

I took the opportunity of some late afternoon sunshine (the attractive but unheated kind) on Saturday, to go for a chilly stroll round Coombe Woods, the community woodland project set up with millennium funding in 1999.

I even tried a spot of creative manipulation with a shot of the trees at the end of our garden.

Did you branch out into something new at the weekend, don’t leaf us in suspense, show us whatcha got…

This week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you to get your inspiration; From ground level.

I went with the literal interpretation and all my photos are taken from mere inches above the ground.

A reflection of trees in a puddle, an obliging skateboarder doing tricks for me in the town’s pannier market and a couple of low down shots of the old streets around church square make up my vertically-challenged offerings.

How low did you go to achieve your results? Let’s have a look, it’s easy to do…

For this edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you to illustrate the essence of the prompt; In the trees.

Despite hobbling around like a malfunctioning android, due to my back still having all the flexibility and resilience of a breadstick, I managed to get out a couple of times to capture either end of yesterday.

From sunrise over Landkey to twilight in the woods just down the road from home, here are my forest of photos, all of which contain at least one visible tree, no matter how distant…

…well, almost; the sunrise over the river was too nice to leave out.

;~}

Before we leaf this week’s theme, let’s see how you branched out, it’s time for y’all to take a bough, if you twig what I mean…

For this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge I’d like your imagination to take the wheel and turn; The everyday into the unusual.

Seems to me like another obvious opportunity for some cryptic creations, but maybe you have your own ideas for some otherworldly imagery, I look forward to finding out on Monday.

Hello there, I hope your weekend went well and that (at least in the UK) you are enjoying this extra day off, complete with glorious sunshine.

This week’s prompt was; An interesting perspective, which can be taken a number of ways. Whether you define it as intentionally looking at things from an interesting angle, simply seeing them from an unusual standpoint, or creating intriguing perspectives yourselves, all your ideas are welcome.

I’m a little later than usual posting today, because I chose to wait until this morning to go hunting for photographic inspiration. I got up early before there were too many people around and drove up onto the hills overlooking the river valley in which Barnstable sits, to capture some images of the wind farm.

I also got some shots from a road bridge across the River Taw, usually a little dangerous to negotiate at peak traffic times, along with a selection from the countryside beneath the turbines.

Oh, and some cows, just because.

Now let’s see your slant on the theme…

For today’s apaturial adventure, I asked you to come up with something for The Cosmic Photo Challenge which featured something Symmetrical.

Well, not being able to get out and about much, I spent time making a few imaginary buildings and pictures with a mirrored element to them.

Now it’s your turn to show us what kind of symmetry you captured over the weekend.
