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…

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…

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 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…

Hello there, I hope your weekend went well and that (at least in the UK) you are enjoying this extra day off, complete with glorious sunshine.

This week’s prompt was; An interesting perspective, which can be taken a number of ways. Whether you define it as intentionally looking at things from an interesting angle, simply seeing them from an unusual standpoint, or creating intriguing perspectives yourselves, all your ideas are welcome.

I’m a little later than usual posting today, because I chose to wait until this morning to go hunting for photographic inspiration. I got up early before there were too many people around and drove up onto the hills overlooking the river valley in which Barnstable sits, to capture some images of the wind farm.

I also got some shots from a road bridge across the River Taw, usually a little dangerous to negotiate at peak traffic times, along with a selection from the countryside beneath the turbines.

Oh, and some cows, just because.

Now let’s see your slant on the theme…
