The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Another lazy Monday in the strange, dystopian limbo that is global lockdown and The Cosmic Photo Challenge is here, to brighten your day and take your mind off all the bad news for a few minutes.

Here’s what I came up with after Friday’s prompt suggested we take this week’s photos; Through an opening.

The current isolation measures mean not having any outside space in which to relax would make life almost unbearable, so we’re increasingly grateful for the little oasis of calm in our crazy (and suddenly very small) world.

And that’s where I took my inspiration from yesterday, while sitting in the sunshine of the garden; looking out into the garden, from inside the house at night and capturing the sunshine from inside the shed; looking at the garden, unusually framed in the openings of Audrey’s bedroom window, looking down into a glass candle holder, looking into the entrance of a tiny birdhouse, seeing the nest materials within and looking out at myself through the openings in the clematis’ obelisk-shaped growing frame.

So that’s the opening salvo in this week’s challenge, let’s have a look at what you lot’ve got for us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and welcome to another wonderful Monday…!

Oh, alright, let’s get on with K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and maybe the week will fly past that little bit quicker.

I gave you a simple theme to play with on Friday; Look up. So I did just that, capturing a very colourful sunset and a couple of long exposure test shots of the starry sky last night. I intend to continue experimenting with that in the near future, as I’d like to see how I do with moon shots. Watch this (outer) space…

K’lee will give you something to look up to HERE.

And now you can show us what you brought to the party.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time for another edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, themed by me this week with the prompt; Night.

Once again I sought inspiration in the garden, since the nights are warm at the moment and it’s nice to sit out there and enjoy the peace and quiet.

I took a few shots with a long exposure which came out rather well, including one slightly spooky self portrait.

K’lee steps out of the shadows to show you his wares HERE.

Now it’s your turn to shine a light on the darkness.

The Night Garden.

Having spent a few weeks getting our new garden looking nice, I finally got round to putting the candle holders out last night and decided to try some long exposure shots when it got dark.

A few carefully placed solar lights added some extra illumination and, with a little digital fiddling the results really are rather lovely.
