The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I decided to go wild for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, capturing photos to match the theme In bloom on the country lanes just outside Barnstaple.

How did your hunt for floral beauty go this week..?

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…

For this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you to downsize, by giving you the prompt; On a small scale.

I decided to go on a miniature safari in the garden, finding a bumble bee on the bugle flowers, along with a snail and a spider lying in wait in the shed. I also built a new hedgehog house in the back corner of the border, which I think qualifies as a small scale log cabin.

Let’s see what details you managed to uncover over the weekend, it’s easy when you know how…

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…

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…

Another weekend flies by and here we are, back at Monday morning.

But never fear, The Cosmic Photo Challenge is here to brighten your day with some organic aesthetics, derived from the prompt; Art from nature.

I used recent images captured in the woods, a nice sunset and my perfectly natural face, to create some arboreal-inspired artworks.

What artistic endeavours did nature inspire in you this week, let’s have a look at your creations…

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…

On Friday I asked you to consider the birds and bees as your homework for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and I chose to go on miniature safari in the garden.

I’d been wanting to try out the macro abilities of my new camera for a while and the buzzing of insects in the sunshine gave me the perfect excuse. I staked out the daffodils and spikes of purple bugle flowers and took a few shots of the inhabitants, until a compliant and extremely fuzzy bumble came along and I followed his progress until he fell asleep, nonchalantly dangling by one leg, snoring gently.

What photographic delights did the Easter weekend provide for you?

It’s as easy as a bee see to take part…

It’s another lovely day at the end of the world and here we are again, documenting it all with pictures in The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I asked you to Pick a colour on Friday as a theme for today’s challenge, which I did…

…even though most of my three photos are different colours entirely.

Audrey and I went out for our government-allocated, daily hour of exercise on Saturday, which was when it occurred to me as it does every year, that yellow really is the accent colour of Spring, (yes, I know we’re officially in summertime now) so that’s the colour I picked.

I captured a bank packed with primroses, a picture postcard country cottage with bright yellow paintwork and a rather lovely panoramic shot including “a host of golden daffodils”, as Wordsworth would no doubt have described it.

It was only when I came to post them that I realised what a small percentage of my chosen images were actually yellow. Still I stand by my choices, but see what you think, did I meet the brief?

Which hues did you choose?

Let’s see your weekend homework, it’s easy to do…

Monday, the day I show you mine and y’all show me yours, in The Cosmic Photo Challenge, for which I provided the following prompt; Spring has sprung.

Dodging the intermittent bad weather, Audrey and I took two walks at the weekend, one along the River Taw and one down a short stretch of the smaller Yeo valley where the river runs through the woods.

Now let’s see what seasonal treats you have in store for us…
