The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

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…

Good morning, I hope your week was successful and that Saturday finds you safe and well, because now it’s time for your weekend homework on The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

The forecast doesn’t look too threatening for the next couple of days, so I’m gambling on being able to get out and about to take some pictures which meet the simple brief; In the trees.

I’ve already noticed many of you appreciate the intrinsically artistic outlines of arboreal architecture and there’s no better time of year to capture the stark, skeletal beauty of bare branches and twisted twigs, making up the imposing organic sculptures which nature has constructed.

See you on Monday, have a great weekend, happy snapping.

Hi there, I hope all your weekends went well and that you’re ready for another edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week brought to you by the prompt; Shades of grey.

I wasn’t able to get out and take photos this week, because of the increasingly crippling back pain I’ve been experiencing since Friday, so I had to make do with a few monochromatic images from the archives.

Here are a couple of black and white sunsets over Barnstaple, a picture postcard cottage near Bideford and Damien Hirst’s spectacular statue, Verity, on Ilfracombe harbour.

Now it’s your turn to cast some shade on proceedings, so let’s see whatcha got…

Hello everyone, sorry I’m so late, I’ll make it quick.

This week’s prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge is one which comes up on a semi-regular basis and is always useful when less than delightful weather is forecast; Shades of grey.

That’s it, see you Monday…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and congratulations on making it to 2021 for the first edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge in this new decade.

On Friday I asked you to come up with photos which illustrated the prompt; A cold start.

I have to admit that I cheated slightly, in that I’d already taken my photos when I set the theme, but I think that’s occasionally the host’s prerogative, isn’t it?

Anyway, here are my shots of a very cold start to the first day of the year, taken on a early morning drive and a brisk walk around the park; including a couple more from the deserted road bridges across the rivers Taw and Torridge.

So, let’s see what chilly images you captured to begin this year’s photographic adventures…

Happy New Year one and all and welcome to the first prompt of 2021 for The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I’m going to give you an easy one to start you off, (unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, perhaps, in which case I apologise) by making the theme; A cold start.

Plenty of subject matter there, judging by the weather forecast, so wrap up warm for the final weekend off before work resumes and I’ll see you on Monday.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning, welcome to the limbo section in between Christmas and New Year when nobody knows what day it is.

One way you can tell it’s Monday however, is because it’s time for The Cosmic Photo Challenge and following my prompt on Friday, that means it’s time to; Show us your Christmas.

The most photogenic thing I encountered on Christmas morning was the sunrise, so I got as many shots of it as I could, while driving to and from Bideford along the Atlantic Highway; stopping on the once more deserted road bridges to take pictures of the Taw and Torridge rivers at low tide.

I also used a long exposure to capture passing headlights in the darkness, drained all the colour from the bottom half of one shot to accentuate the vivid hues in the sky and got a nice panoramic picture of sunrise over our neighborhood.

I took quite a few shots I didn’t have room for here, but you can see the entire gallery in all its glory over on my photo blog, Images From An Internet Nobody.

Oh, and then there was Audrey, trying to wear all her Christmas presents at once.

How did you interpret the theme this week, I’m on the edge of my seat…

Happy Christmas, one and all, I hope your day has gone according to plan so far and that you’ve managed to make the best of this unique situation that we all find ourselves in.

One thing that stays as unchanged as a broken clock however, is The Cosmic Photo Challenge and it’s time for me to give you your prompt for Monday’s post.

It’s an obvious one, given the day on which it falls, I’m simply asking for you to; Show us your Christmas.

Y’all know the drill by now, I’m sure, but for any new challengers I’ll just say that how you interpret the theme of each prompt is entirely up to you and there are no wrong answers.

So after the post-dinner lethargy wears off, try capture your festive season for us and I’ll see you on the other side.

Now, what’s for the next meal..?

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning to you and welcome to a 2020 greatest hits edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, wherein y’all pick your personal favourite shots of the year for a prompt we’re calling; Cream of the crop.

I decided to go with a selection of images which sum up life here in one small corner of Devon, during this surreal and uniquely challenging year.

From the time I spent off work, sitting in the garden for weeks on end, finding new and creative ways to entertain myself; to solitary walks along woodland paths and riverbanks, capturing an unusually quiet and empty version of the world; to bizarre lockdown art projects and video experiments, 2020 was a year which will be hard to forget.

It’s been an absolute pleasure to have your collective company over the last twelve months, however difficult it may have seemed, we made it through.

Now it’s time for you to show off your proudest photographic moments, come on, don’t be shy…

Hello there, I hope your weekend is going well and, if your festive break from work began yesterday, happy holidays to you, too.

As I previously mentioned, this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge is going to be focussing on your favourite shots of the year, with a prompt I’m calling; Cream of the crop.

Anything you captured in 2020 is fair game, but apart from that you have carte blanche to do whatever you wish with your images and I look forward to seeing what you choose to showcase for us.

It doesn’t matter if you have submitted your pictures to the challenge already this year, it’s all about what you consider to be your finest photographic moments.

Enjoy your time off, I’ll see you again on Monday.
