The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

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…

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…

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…

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…

When I set the theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge on Friday, I was fully expecting to have a couple of frosty mornings to go with the prompt; The first breath of Winter.

But as usual the English weather didn’t cooperate, (not that I’m complaining on this occasion) and yesterday was a lovely sunny day to take a walk along the opposite side of the River Taw for a change.

I followed the Tarka Trail cycle path, under the tall road bridge I walked over two weeks ago, down to the flood plain, where the receding tide and calm water made for some excellent reflections.

What did you find to impress us with at the weekend? Come on, it’s time to show ‘n’ tell…

For a picturesque way to start this week, The Cosmic Photo Challenge has requested that you furnish us with images on the theme of; If you go down in the woods today.

So I did just that. On Saturday I went out to the wooded grounds of Arlington Court and yesterday I took a sunny stroll along the banks of the River Yeo, capturing trees, plants and water at their autumnal best.

{I took so many pictures, there wasn’t room for them all in one post, but you can see the whole lot HERE, ON MY PHOTO BLOG}

Then I came to a fork in the road…

Which way to go..?

This way, I think…

Now let’s have a look at your arboreal adventures…
