The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s another lovely day at the end of the world and here we are again, documenting it all with pictures in The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I asked you to Pick a colour on Friday as a theme for today’s challenge, which I did…

…even though most of my three photos are different colours entirely.

Audrey and I went out for our government-allocated, daily hour of exercise on Saturday, which was when it occurred to me as it does every year, that yellow really is the accent colour of Spring, (yes, I know we’re officially in summertime now) so that’s the colour I picked.

I captured a bank packed with primroses, a picture postcard country cottage with bright yellow paintwork and a rather lovely panoramic shot including “a host of golden daffodils”, as Wordsworth would no doubt have described it.

It was only when I came to post them that I realised what a small percentage of my chosen images were actually yellow. Still I stand by my choices, but see what you think, did I meet the brief?

Which hues did you choose?

Let’s see your weekend homework, it’s easy to do…

Welcome back to the prompt section of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, in which I shall provide your inspirational theme for Monday’s photographic extravaganza.

More and more of us are having to remain on our own properties at the moment, if not completely indoors, so I will continue to give you prompts with very broad ranges of subject matter. This week I’m asking you to be true to a hue and; Pick a colour.

Yes, you can post photos of whatever you damn well like, just as long as all of your contributions conform to the same spectral position.

Let’s say three images minimum this week, since we all have a bit more time on our hands. That gives you shades to play with, too, within your main colour choice.

So get playful with the pigmentation and creative with the colourisation for The Cosmic Photo Challenge, it’s a piece of cake when you know how…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Sorry I’m late posting today’s installment of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, it must be the upcoming zombie apocalypse making me forgetful.

I gave you the prompt of Inside on Friday, since we’re all spending a lot of time involuntarily incarcerated at the moment, but I did manage to get out in the garden during yesterday’s sunny weather.

The inside of a fritillary, an obelisk covered in clematis, an internal view of a bamboo clump and the sky outside on the inside of my coffee cup…

Did you get out and about, or were you internalising at the weekend?

Let’s see what you captured.

In the strange times we are currently living through, I thought it appropriate to make the prompt for this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge something we’re all going be seeing a lot of for the foreseeable future; Inside.

This doesn’t have to be indoors, necessarily, if you are fortunate enough to be able to get out and about safely. But your contributions should feature the inside of something, whether it’s in the great outdoors or not.

I sincerely hope you’re all keeping yourselves and those around you safe and well. Be good to each other and look after the vulnerable where it’s possible, and I’ll see you back here for our usual, contact-free meeting of like minds on Monday.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to go small, with the prompt; Macro.

This was mainly because I wanted to try out the closeup abilities of the improved camera on my new phone, so I just used the first small, interesting objects I found in the living room.

These happened to be in a jar of shells and interesting stones which have been collected over the years, including some pyrite and a petoskey stone Audrey brought from Michigan.

Now let’s have a look at your small objects of desire.

Ok, I admit it, Saturday is the new Friday, at least as far as me coming up with a theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge is concerned and today I have chosen to go with a small idea; Macro.

The tinier the better this week, so get close to your subject matter and show us some fine detail in your images.

Have a great weekend, stay healthy and, assuming we all survive the viral apocalypse, see you back here on Monday.

Monday, the day I show you mine and y’all show me yours, in The Cosmic Photo Challenge, for which I provided the following prompt; Spring has sprung.

Dodging the intermittent bad weather, Audrey and I took two walks at the weekend, one along the River Taw and one down a short stretch of the smaller Yeo valley where the river runs through the woods.

Now let’s see what seasonal treats you have in store for us…

Apologies for the slight tardiness of this week’s prompt, I keep forgetting I’m sole provider of inspiration on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, but now I’m here I’ll give you this nice easy one for your theme; Spring has sprung.

I know the weather hasn’t exactly been Spring-like recently, at least not around here, but I’m going to gamble on capturing something indicative of the season, nonetheless.

So why not hunt down some shoots of new growth and join me to watch them bloom on Monday’s post, it’s so easy to do…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Another week dawns and a new edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge is upon us, this Monday brought to you by the prompt; Liquids.

I set the theme with no clear idea in mind, just a plan to try out the combination of the high resolution camera on my new phone and my new, Bluetooth-enabled tripod.

As it was a nice sunny day for a change, Audrey and I went walkabout yesterday afternoon, in search of rivers to photograph after the recent deluge the UK has been experiencing over the last couple of weeks.

But as soon as we started walking the clouds appeared and down came the rain again. So we dodged the showers and moved from place to place, capturing the reflective and kinetic properties of water in the wild.

This rushing water on the corner of a stream…

…is transformed into an ethereal mist with a long exposure.

The river Taw in Rock Park was flowing rapidly out to the estuary, in one of the irregular spells of sunshine and Audrey did some moody emo posing for me at the edge of a suitably photogenic puddle.

Meanwhile, back at home, I found some air bubbles in a bottle of wine and I set the tripod up in the sink to take some close-up drop shots, so to speak.

So, what caught your eye this weekend?

Come on, show us what you have up your sleeve, it’s easy when you know how…
