The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Monday comes around so fast, but never fear, The Cosmic Photo Challenge is here to brighten the start of your week with the theme of; Our feathered friends.

The birds didn’t seem to be taking the challenge seriously, though, when I walked along the river in the park yesterday.

Usually thronging with gulls and ducks, the only ones on the water were a flock of geese and they wouldn’t do me the decency of coming close enough for a good shot.

Then when I did manage to capture a suitable avian subject, they seemed intent on camouflaging themselves.

There is a gull in this shot, for example…

…and a pigeon in this one…

…but you’d never know it to start with.

So I resorted to using a few shots of the gull family at work, whose lives I have been chronicling on Facebook for a few weeks.

What did you catch on the fly at the weekend?

Don’t be shy, let us all enjoy your pictures, it’s as easy as 1,2,3…

Good morning/afternoon/evening, wherever you may be and welcome to the regular Monday post of The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On Friday I asked you to use your creative talents to illustrate the theme of a wet weekend, since that was clearly what we were in for in our neck of the woods.

But alas, having wasted the chances of a horrible Saturday, hiding inside from the rain and finally accepting I’d have to get out in the inclement weather yesterday instead, Sunday was dry!

I decided I’d have to settle for water flowing horizontally, rather than falling vertically, so I took a quick drive from Instow back to Barnstaple, via Fremington Quay and captured some shots along the very windy Torridge and Taw rivers.

How did your weekend pan out?

Come on, don’t be shy, let’s all have a look…

For this week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I’ve resigned myself to asking for images of; A wet weekend.

Yes, rather predictably the weather has decided to be uncooperative for this short break from the working week (or possibly slightly longer if you’re in America – Happy Independence Day to y’all, by the way) so we’ll go with what we’ve got and hope for the best.

See you on Monday for a show and tell of elemental proportions. Until then, stay safe and keep on keeping on.

I admit it, I kind of cheated for The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, because I already knew the photos I was going to use for the theme; Forces of nature.

There was an electrical storm the other night and I managed to capture my first ever lightning shots (which I expect some of you have seen on Facebook) and I couldn’t resist using them today.

Now let’s see what you bright sparks have for us…

For this week’s creative adventure on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I’d like you to indulge me, as I have an ulterior motive for today’s prompt; Forces of nature.

You’ll have to wait and see what I have in mind, but that’s fair, since I always have to wait and see what y’all bring to the party.

So give us all something naturally powerful to gaze upon at the start of the week and make our Monday less, well, Monday.

“So, how do I do that?”, you ask.

Just follow these simple steps and dive right in…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For your weekend homework on this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you (as it turns out, not very inclusively) to capture; Midsummer.

It was pointed out (thanks, eklastic) that I should have added Midwinter, to include my visitors from below the equator, so apologies for that unintentional omission.

I took a drive yesterday afternoon, while the sun battled for space between the clouds; visiting Eastleigh village with its neatly kept churchyard and picturesque cottages, capturing some panoramas of the Torridge valley and the quiet country lanes.

ow it’s your turn to show us your visions of solstice.

It’s easy to do, just follow these simple steps…
