The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

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…

Rather daringly, I set the theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week with hopes that the English weather would cooperate and gave you the prompt; Low light.

If I had been imagining nice twilight shots of dusky sunsets and the gauzy loveliness of early morning mist, I would have been disappointed. But I’m a realist, so it didn’t surprise me at all when I left the house yesterday afternoon at 4 and it immediately started to rain.

But I was out by then, so I took a soggy stroll along the river in the park and managed to capture a few half decent images of a grey winter’s day.

Of course, by the time I got home it had stopped raining, so when it was properly dark I did some mucking about, using long exposures and the mood lighting in the garden.

*Edit: Because it annoys me that the weather was typically pleasant today, now we’re all back at work, here are the sort of photos I was hoping to capture yesterday, from earlier this evening. ;~}

So, what did all you bright sparks find to illuminate the darkness at the weekend?

Come on, don’t be shy, we all want to see…

On Friday for The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to provide your own interpretation of my inspiration; Vertical.

I have taken a very loose guide from the prompt; capturing images on a short walk yesterday morning which are either of vertical things, from vertical things, or at a vertical angle, plus a bit of creative mucking about.

Walls, walking, fences, bridges, hedges and selfies, it’s amazing what you can squeeze out of a simple one word theme.

Where did the directions lead you over the weekend?

Come on, I’ve shown you mine, now show me yours…

This week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge we are aiming to capture the world; As summer* fades.

I chose to wait until yesterday morning to go out seeking inspiration, returning to Fremington Quay, this time at low tide, to take some photos on the river’s edge and along the Tarka Trail cycle path.

*or winter

How does the changing of the seasons look in your corner of the world?

Come on, we all want to see, it’s easy to do…

Good morning/afternoon/evening, wherever you may be and welcome to the regular Monday post of The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On Friday I asked you to use your creative talents to illustrate the theme of a wet weekend, since that was clearly what we were in for in our neck of the woods.

But alas, having wasted the chances of a horrible Saturday, hiding inside from the rain and finally accepting I’d have to get out in the inclement weather yesterday instead, Sunday was dry!

I decided I’d have to settle for water flowing horizontally, rather than falling vertically, so I took a quick drive from Instow back to Barnstaple, via Fremington Quay and captured some shots along the very windy Torridge and Taw rivers.

How did your weekend pan out?

Come on, don’t be shy, let’s all have a look…

For this week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to go small, with the prompt; Macro.

This was mainly because I wanted to try out the closeup abilities of the improved camera on my new phone, so I just used the first small, interesting objects I found in the living room.

These happened to be in a jar of shells and interesting stones which have been collected over the years, including some pyrite and a petoskey stone Audrey brought from Michigan.

Now let’s have a look at your small objects of desire.
