The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning, or whatever time of day this post of The Cosmic Photo Challenge coincides with your Monday, I’m here to swap images illustrating the prompt; As the evenings start to lengthen.

I had to gamble on yesterday being photogenic enough to provide inspiration, since Saturday was grey and overcast, but fortunately it paid off.

I nipped down to the square and captured a few shots of deserted streets and the long bridge over the river Taw, just as the sun slipped below the horizon. A couple more sunsets taken during the week and (stretching the term “evening”, even by my flexible standards) a long exposure shot of star trails over the back garden.

“At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them”

Where did eventide find you over the weekend, would you like to show us..?

For this week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you to capture your images; From close up.

It was a decidedly unpleasant weekend outside, so all but one of my shots came from indoors.

What did you zoom in on for today’s challenge? Show and tell time…

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…

Hi there, I hope all your weekends went well and that you’re ready for another edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week brought to you by the prompt; Shades of grey.

I wasn’t able to get out and take photos this week, because of the increasingly crippling back pain I’ve been experiencing since Friday, so I had to make do with a few monochromatic images from the archives.

Here are a couple of black and white sunsets over Barnstaple, a picture postcard cottage near Bideford and Damien Hirst’s spectacular statue, Verity, on Ilfracombe harbour.

Now it’s your turn to cast some shade on proceedings, so let’s see whatcha got…

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…

Good morning, welcome to the limbo section in between Christmas and New Year when nobody knows what day it is.

One way you can tell it’s Monday however, is because it’s time for The Cosmic Photo Challenge and following my prompt on Friday, that means it’s time to; Show us your Christmas.

The most photogenic thing I encountered on Christmas morning was the sunrise, so I got as many shots of it as I could, while driving to and from Bideford along the Atlantic Highway; stopping on the once more deserted road bridges to take pictures of the Taw and Torridge rivers at low tide.

I also used a long exposure to capture passing headlights in the darkness, drained all the colour from the bottom half of one shot to accentuate the vivid hues in the sky and got a nice panoramic picture of sunrise over our neighborhood.

I took quite a few shots I didn’t have room for here, but you can see the entire gallery in all its glory over on my photo blog, Images From An Internet Nobody.

Oh, and then there was Audrey, trying to wear all her Christmas presents at once.

How did you interpret the theme this week, I’m on the edge of my seat…

Good morning to you and welcome to a 2020 greatest hits edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, wherein y’all pick your personal favourite shots of the year for a prompt we’re calling; Cream of the crop.

I decided to go with a selection of images which sum up life here in one small corner of Devon, during this surreal and uniquely challenging year.

From the time I spent off work, sitting in the garden for weeks on end, finding new and creative ways to entertain myself; to solitary walks along woodland paths and riverbanks, capturing an unusually quiet and empty version of the world; to bizarre lockdown art projects and video experiments, 2020 was a year which will be hard to forget.

It’s been an absolute pleasure to have your collective company over the last twelve months, however difficult it may have seemed, we made it through.

Now it’s time for you to show off your proudest photographic moments, come on, don’t be shy…

Another week nearer the end of 2020 and another edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, today brought to you by the prompt; Christmas is coming.

It just so happens that this was the weekend our tree went up and yesterday I also finally got the crisp, sunny winter morning I was hoping for a couple of weeks ago.

I only ventured out long enough to snap a shot of the heavy frost on my car, because it was very cold…

…before taking a walk in the afternoon and capturing a beautiful sunset reflected on the still waters of the river, one of which takes on a Christmas tree-like appearance, when rotated 90°.

How festively inspired was your weekend? Time for you to share your pictures and let everybody see for themselves.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Just about made it for a Friday prompt on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, albeit with only an hour to spare.

So I’ll make it quick and wish you goodnight.

What I’d like you to capture is something which embodies the theme; Low light.

Have a great weekend, see you on Monday.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

When I set the theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge on Friday, I was fully expecting to have a couple of frosty mornings to go with the prompt; The first breath of Winter.

But as usual the English weather didn’t cooperate, (not that I’m complaining on this occasion) and yesterday was a lovely sunny day to take a walk along the opposite side of the River Taw for a change.

I followed the Tarka Trail cycle path, under the tall road bridge I walked over two weeks ago, down to the flood plain, where the receding tide and calm water made for some excellent reflections.

What did you find to impress us with at the weekend? Come on, it’s time to show ‘n’ tell…
