K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee picked the theme for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, going for the contrasting dynamics of; Bodies at rest, bodies in motion.

I have chosen to illustrate the prompt with some photos of a recent walk on the beach with Audrey.

Bodies at rest: Audrey standing on the beach; a jellyfish, which has ceased to move altogether; a heavenly body, the sun, resting on the sand…

Bodies in motion; a couple of action shots of two dogs Audrey was petting and a nice one of her kicking along the sand…

K’lee’s post is HERE, but now let’s see what you came up with.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s Monday again and it’s time to start the week with a quiz!

Yes, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge brings you a visual conundrum today, using the old “say what you see” format as a prompt, to test your mental, as well as your photographic creativity.

I am probably making it too easy for you with my well known quote, but it was the first thing I thought of when I was explaining to concept to Audrey yesterday, so here goes…

And here are the originals…

There, that wasn’t too difficult, was it?

K’lee will attempt to puzzle you HERE, later.

Now you can have a go at bamboozling us, it’s easy when you know how…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, with plenty of summer sunshine to help capture some pictures for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week’s theme being; Where the wild things are.

I hoped to find a plethora of willing wildlife models, eager to pose for close ups, in amongst the foliage of the garden, but only a longhorn beetle made the effort. So I had to content myself with some hungry gulls down on the river and sea shells (come on, they had wild animals in once, right?) from my walk on the beach with Audrey yesterday morning.

K’lee’s post is now up and you should go HERE for your viewing pleasure.

Now it’s time for you to show us your wild side…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time for another bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with the theme provided by yours truly; In the country.

Quite a lot of scope, depending on your interpretation I suppose, but I kept it simple, with a slight twist of perspective and a bit of artistic licence.

My photographic offerings for today were all captured from atop the imposing viaduct, which carries the A361 North Devon link road across a valley which forms part of the Castle Hill estate at Filleigh.

A quick walk down the road from a convenient layby and I was rewarded with fabulous views of the steep forested slopes and meandering river below, lush and green in the patchy morning sunshine.

You’ll find K’lee’s inspired images HERE.

But we want to see what you found out in the countryside at the weekend, so come and join in, it’s easy…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and welcome to a later than usual edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, as I didn’t have time to post until now, having been at work since 6a.m.

Anyway, it was K’lee’s turn to choose the theme this week and he picked; Light.

I was inspired by a chance alignment of sunshine, fence panel and ornamental candle holder while sitting in the garden yesterday; when I spotted a beam of light coming through a slot in the wooden slats.

As the sun dropped lower in the sky over the afternoon, the beam struck the glass cover of a ground torch…

…and after an hour or so, it began to form a line around the tapered glass.

It soon became clear that the line was going to encircle the cover, so I kept a close watch…

…until it reached a kind of garden-based solar totality.

You can see what K’lee has to enlighten us with, HERE.

But now it’s time to shine the spotlight on you…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Friday’s prompt for this edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was inspired by one particular image but, as usual, my mind wandered and another idea took up far more time.

The theme I chose was fairly simple; Natural patterns, prompted by some strange shapes on the side of Rhonda’s bbq charcoal starter…

…which, after it had cooled, looked like this;

There was this leaf-within-a-leaf pattern on some ivy…

…and the pattern of sunlight through these branches;

Which was gave me an idea.

I thought I could show the almost fractal patterns created by leaves and light in a more…abstract and interesting way. So I converted the photo to harsh black and white, then slowly raised the contrast a bit at a time, until I had nearly fifty versions of the same image, which I ran through my gif maker.

K’lee will show us his natural talent with patterns HERE.

But now you can take the opportunity to stun us with your Monday creativity.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

I can’t begin to tell you how stressful the past few days have been, (although I suspect I soon shall) which is why this post is so late and also why I missed One Liner Wednesday this week.

But now I have managed to get all my urgent jobs done for the weekend, I can give you your weekly prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I decided to give you some scope for your subject matter today and chose; Natural patterns.

So go out and find some inspiring images for Monday’s post, it’s easy when you know how…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello from the sunshine of the garden and welcome to this bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week curated by K’lee and inspired by his prompt; Copper, silver and gold.

The very first thing which occurred to me when I saw that, was money. So I went with simplistic but artistic today and grabbed the first three coins that met the criteria, cleaned them up a bit and, after a bit of digital fiddling, voilá, copper, silver and gold

I’m sure K’lee will have something precious to show us, HERE.

But now it’s time for you to add to the treasure trove…
