The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On The Cosmic Photo Challenge today, we’re; On the coast, or at least immediately adjacent to it in my case.

My intention was to be up early and arrive at any one of several nearby beaches before the hoards of newly-freed Grockles descended for the day, but I didn’t get up in time so I went to Wrafton instead.

A small tributary of the river Taw, the river Caen runs through Braunton and Wrafton is where it joins the Taw estuary before flowing out to sea. The tide was out when I visited, boats stranded on the mud in the baking sunshine, but walking along the Tarka Trail to the riverbank was very pleasant nonetheless.

How was your weekend, what did you capture for us from life on the edge..?

Good morning, I hope your week has started successfully, whether you are back at work or enjoying the sunshine on this glorious bank holiday Monday. But wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, it’s time to take a break and check out the sumptuous, summery images in this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which today is prompted by the theme; Here comes Summer.

I took a very pleasant drive up into the hills above Barnstaple again yesterday, this time capturing the views from around the village of Heanton Punchardon. I’ve included a short video, giving a 360° view from a field below the village, so you too can enjoy the peace and quiet of the Devon countryside.

What delights did you find for us to wonder at this week, come on, we’d love to see…

This week’s prompt on The Cosmic Photo Challenge asked you to get out amongst the greenery and show us what it’s like in; My green world.

I took a short drive into the countryside just outside Barnstaple, to capture some of the newly lush landscape around Westacott and in the hills above Goodleigh.

I look forward to seeing what delights you have to unveil to us this week…

I set the theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge on Saturday, hoping the weather would still be playing ball on Sunday evening, because the prompt was; At the end of the day.

Lucky for me it was a beautiful weekend, so my trip to Instow beach yesterday turned out to be just in time to catch the start of an almost perfect sunset.

I also captured some more star trails last night, which I thought I’d include as a bonus photo, despite the two and a half hour exposure technically just overrunning into this morning.

What did you see that was worth shooting this week, don’t be shy, let’s all have a look…

On this week’s adventure in inspired imagery with The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to capture your photos; In the big wide open spaces.

There isn’t anywhere round here which meets that description better than Exmoor National Park, so I took a drive up to the hills around Simonsbath and enjoyed the peace and quiet in glorious sunshine.

I even filmed another little video tour for you.

Did the weather look kindly upon your corner of the world this week? Come on, let’s have a look at what you found…

Good morning, or whatever time of day this post of The Cosmic Photo Challenge coincides with your Monday, I’m here to swap images illustrating the prompt; As the evenings start to lengthen.

I had to gamble on yesterday being photogenic enough to provide inspiration, since Saturday was grey and overcast, but fortunately it paid off.

I nipped down to the square and captured a few shots of deserted streets and the long bridge over the river Taw, just as the sun slipped below the horizon. A couple more sunsets taken during the week and (stretching the term “evening”, even by my flexible standards) a long exposure shot of star trails over the back garden.

“At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them”

Where did eventide find you over the weekend, would you like to show us..?

Hello again, welcome to the week and another show and tell on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, today themed around the prompt; Against the wind.

Did I say something about the weather cooperating on Saturday?

Hmm, silly me, that didn’t help at all.

Saturday was mainly grey and miserable, with short bursts of blue sky and apathetic sunshine, yesterday it was just nasty, so I had to settle for snapping some wind-sculpted trees on a drive through the hills around Bideford.

Did the elements play ball for you at the weekend? Come on, let’s see what you captured…

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…

Hello there, I hope your weekend went well and you had the opportunity to capture some images to meet the brief for this week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which on Friday I set as; First hints of Spring.

I took a wander round Appledore on Saturday afternoon and stopped to snap a couple of my favourite bridge views first thing yesterday morning.

The ship’s anchor on Appledore harbour wall has been covered in knitted poppies by local residents, commemorating the war dead, some of whom no doubt lie in the graveyard which affords such glorious views of the estuary.

Now you can show us how Spring has sprung around your neck of the woods.

Hello and welcome to The Cosmic Photo Challenge, here to brighten the start of a chilly Monday with images taken in; The cold light of day.

It was fortunate that I stopped off at Instow beach on Saturday to take my photos for this week’s challenge, since the weather turned truly nasty yesterday.

You might get the impression from the bright sunshine that it was a pleasantly warm stroll along the harbour, but I can confirm that it was, indeed, extremely cold and blustery. In fact I was almost toppled off the sea wall on several occasions while capturing these windblown shots.

What did you br-r-r-r-r-ring to the party this week?

Don’t be shy, let us all have a look…
