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.

It’s the first post in K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge for the new year, with the theme I picked back in the 2010s; Welcome to the ’20s.

Last Wednesday, Rhonda and Audrey joined in with the unwritten tradition of mad English people down the ages; going for a “bracing walk” on New Year’s Day.

In the rain.

And fog.

On the beach, obviously.

It was actually a very nice stroll, just as the tide was starting to come in at Instow, from the blustery dunes to the shallow waterline, all shrouded in a foggy blanket.

I even found the inspiration for a little digital mucking about to start this year’s photographic ball rolling.

K’lee has posted his New Year images HERE.

Now you can show us how you got into the new decade.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

It’s Friday…isn’t it?…I think it’s Friday, it’s getting hard to tell without any meaningful routine to remind me where we are.

But it’s back to normal on Monday, when we shall be indulging in the first K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge of the year, the prompt for which is my responsibility and I have chosen to start off easy, with; Welcome to the ’20s.

So you can show us how you saw in the new decade, (I just know some of you must have some lovely firework shots) or come up with your own spin on the theme, as always it’s up to you.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to the final K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge of 2019, where we are once again showcasing some of our favourite shots of the year, as per K’lee’s suggestion at the weekend.

Here, in no particular order of preference, are a selection of images which caught my eye as I scrolled through twelve months worth of photos this morning.

Have a wonderful New Year celebration, whatever you’re doing and we’ll see you back here for more challenges in the coming decade.

See the best of K’lee’s best HERE later.

Now it’s over to you.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee’s prompt for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge insisted that we; Colour my world and I am fairly sure that he’s a big fan of blues, so I plundered the archives for some examples of my bluest images and reworked a couple, too.

You’ll see K’lee’s true colours HERE later.

Now it’s time for your colourful contributions…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you all to Showcase yourself and give us some of your greatest hits to inspire our collective creativity.

I chose to follow my own suggestions; I searched through the last twelve of months of photos to see what jumped out at me; picked another shot which I’ve always been really pleased with and added a few others that fall broadly into the “mucking about” category.

The image from this year that caught my eye wasn’t a hugely spectacular or technically complicated one, but the composition is nicely balanced and it’s a great shot of Audrey from one of our cycling/photography outings in the summer.

I have taken a lot photos of birds in flight, capturing action shots of gulls and ducks feeding at our local wildfowl reserve, which is where I took this second picture a few years ago and it’s one I am still rather proud of.

Which brings us to a more adventurous form of the photographic art; my experiments with digital editing and manipulation from over the years.

Try not to have nightmares…

K’lee’s selection is bound to be simply the best and is now HERE for your perusal.

But now we’d love to see what you have cherry picked from your archives for us.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

We had a little confusion over the prompt at the weekend, but we eventually provided you with two options for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week; Playing with light or The coming of winter/Winter’s breath.

I initially thought I’d go with some low winter sunshine…

…but when I got home, Rhonda and Audrey were decorating our newly-erected Christmas tree, so I decided to take inspiration from that and do some long exposure mucking about.

*edit: I could hardly let this evening’s spectacular sunset go by without capturing it for the challenge, too.

K’lee is HERE, getting all seasonal and glittery for you on the other side of the Atlantic.

But now you get to show us the light of your creativity.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I have gone for a very basic interpretation of the theme; Blurred.

Audrey and I went for our weekly pool session yesterday, so I took a few shots of the demon potter in action, capturing the motion of speeding balls as she smashed the triangle apart on the break.

K’lee will get all fuzzy for you HERE.

Now it’s time to see how you lost focus this week.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I chose to go with a single image for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, to illustrate K’lee’s theme of; What dreams may come.

It wasn’t any particular dream I had in mind, I just used a rather excellent surrealist sketch that Audrey drew last week and gave it a dreamlike makeover by adding it to a beach photo from a few weeks ago.

It came out quite well, I thought, see what you think.

K’lee will dream up something wonderful HERE later.

But now it’s your turn.
