K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, knowing that I was getting up early for work yesterday and hoping I could capture something to do justice to the prompt; Break of day.

Well I wasn’t disappointed, because there was some suitably atmospheric fog adorning the Devon countryside on my drive home; with the imposing Castle Hill house and gardens, (Fortescue family seat, currently home to Lady Arran) providing a dramatic landmark amongst the rolling hills and ancient trees.

It certainly is worth getting up early sometimes, when the world is still waking up, you get to witness nature at its best.

See what K’lee has in store HERE.

Now it’s time for you early birds to show us what photographic worms you caught for us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Only two days to go, so you’d better get out and buy your significant other a card, some chocolates and/or some flowers, because Valentine’s Day is almost upon us.

Which explains the theme to today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, set this week by K’lee, romantic fool that he is; The look of love.

It really didn’t take me any time at all to decide on the photo to use, since it so precisely meets the brief; an edited version of a blissful selfie of Rhonda and I, the day we first met in person, back in 2014. Along with a shot of Rhonda and Audrey having a thumb war, where their expressions speak for themselves.

K’lee will show you some love HERE and it’s a multimedia extravaganza, let me tell you.

Now we want to see what elicits the look of love from you…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme for today’s post on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, choosing to give you open licence to show us some reasons to be cheerful.

I didn’t have anything particular in mind and, after Saturday being such a success, it was nice to just slob around at home while the ladies pampered themselves for the day.

I could post a picture of my lovely new phone or the excellent new wireless headphones I spent much of the day listening to, but neither of those things make me anywhere near as cheerful as knowing my wife and daughter are now able to renew their visas. Meaning my offerings are not so much based on photographic proficiency or spectacular effects this week, but they stick very closely to the brief.

In honour of the Superbowl, (which I don’t watch and which only interests me because of the food involved) here is a photo of the amazing dinner Rhonda prepared last night; chicken fried steak and gravy with mashed potato and “Texas toast” (just out of shot)

…followed by a sight that can’t fail to cheer anyone up, Audrey jigging about to a YouTube video in her “floofy” pajamas.

K’lee will cheer you up, HERE, so go and check him out.

Now it’s your turn to put a smile on our faces.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

It’s the weekend, so it’s time for another prompt on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which I’m picking today.

I’ve had a particularity good couple of days, so this week’s theme is simply; Reasons to be cheerful.

You can show us what makes you happy on Monday, by following a few easy steps, so why not get involved if you’ve never taken part before.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good grief, is it Monday already?

It doesn’t seem like we had a weekend, but I suppose we must have done. Perhaps weekends are merely a legend or a myth, which would fit in rather nicely with the theme for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because K’lee set this week’s prompt; Mythological.

That was quite a challenge (but then that’s the point, obviously) and I had to resort to plundering the archives for some inspiration.

I decided on these four images, which I think have a suitably mythical flavour, see what you think.

You can see what the legendary K’lee has dreamed up HERE.

But for now, it’s time for you to fascinate us with your fantastical photographic offerings…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

This week’s theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was set by K’lee and it’s one his more esoteric ideas; Mythological.

Obviously there is plenty of room for interpretation with this one, so I look forward to seeing what y’all come up with for Monday’s post.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

With the beginning of a new week comes a new prompt from K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week chosen by me; At the end of the day.

I took a fairly straightforward approach this week, illustrating what happens when you live surrounded by rivers at the end of a day (or two) of constant rain.

These were taken at around 4.30 yesterday afternoon, just before it got slightly darker than it had been for most of the day.

K’lee has posted his photos already and you can see them HERE.

Now it’s time to show us the end of your day.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Hello and a happy Friday to you all, it’s time for a rare, on time prompt for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week with a theme set by me.

It just occurred to me that now (4.30 in the afternoon) it is still just about light outside and the days are noticeably lengthening, giving us something approaching an “evening” again. And longer days = extended photo opportunities

With this in mind, this week’s prompt is; At the end of the day.

You can, of course, interpret that any way you like; it would be nice to see some colourful sunsets or dusky landscapes in the mix, but I’ll leave the creative decisions up to you.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s Monday and once again it’s time to get creative with your imagery for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today is K’lee’s challenge and he chose the theme of the elements; Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

I decided to go fully interpretive and enlisted Audrey to assist me in a spot of light painting, as it was popular when we had a go at Christmas.

K’lee has his own take and you can see it HERE.

But now let’s see what you made of the prompt…
