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.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by K’lee and his prompt; Autumn leaves/autumn light.

I chose to go with a straightforward approach this week and took a stroll round the park with Audrey, (who did her best tree impression) capturing a rather damp Sunday morning along the river.

Take a leaf out of K’lee’s book HERE.

Now let’s see your seasonal offerings.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I’d like to think my resigned prompt for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was the catalyst for an unexpected change in the weather yesterday, but I admit it’s unlikely.

As a reaction to a wet and windy week, my theme on Friday was; Sun, sea and sand, which I planned to illustrate with some of the many suitable photos I have in my archives.

Imagine my surprise, then, when I woke up yesterday morning to a bright and beautiful, sunny Autumn day. Just the kind of day for a walk on the beach in fact.

So Audrey and I went for a highly enjoyable stroll along Instow beach and harbour front at low tide.

And if you click on this final photo, you can take one of those fancy 360° panorama tours of the harbour.

Bathe in the light of K’lee’s sunny disposition HERE later.

Now let’s see if you had any luck with the weather round your way.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and welcome to the start of a brand new week which, as ever, means another foray into the optical playground we call K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week our adventure is hosted by my transatlantic pal, K’lee, who gave us the creative prod of (to give it its full name); Cosmically circular/cosmically square.

I decided I would create a one-off digital artwork to meet K’lee’s brief, using this ordinary photo of the square tiles in our kitchen.

But that turned into two when, after a considerable amount of mucking about, I produced this rather fetching abstract image…

…which eventually morphed into this extremely cosmic masterpiece.

K’lee will put his round photographic peg in a square post HERE.

But for now it’s time for you to show us your curves and angles…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set this week’s theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, choosing to turn everything; Inside out/outside in/upside down for a change.

As usual, I plucked that out of the air with no real clue what to do with it…until yesterday morning while I was sitting in the small garden shed that serves as a shelter from the rain, listening to the birds and drinking my first coffee of the day.

It occurred to me that I was sitting inside, looking into the outside and things kind of snowballed from there.

I took several photos of doorways; from the entrance and stairway of our building, to our front door, the kitchen, living room, bathroom and even my car.

Then I spent an entertaining hour or so, switching the view from each door, like something out of a pan-dimensional sci-fi story.

Here are the original shots…

…and these are the alternate universe versions:

See which way up K’lee wanted to go HERE.

Now you can flip us some snaps of your own.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee provided the inspiration for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, picking another of his trademark enigmatic themes; A vision of tomorrow, through the eyes of yesterday.

I chose to take his prompt rather literally, using the theme of sunrise and sunset to illustrate the tomorrow/yesterday element and, well…eyes.

First, morning and evening in the woods…

…then a journey home; with a shot of the sun rising behind me over the motorway, as I drove home early one morning, paired with a sunset over the river in Barnstaple.

And then there’s this…

K’lee has his eyes on the prize HERE and it’s a visual treat.

Now let’s see where your creative talents took you.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme for today’s seasonal adventure on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, requesting that you provide an illustration for the prompt; A touch of Autumn.

This time of year is often thought of as gloriously colourful and pleasantly warm, by those of you from sunnier climes, but here in England that’s not always the case.

In fact, grey and wet is a more accurate description of our autumnal weather, but we have to work with what we’ve got so I went out in the rain and captured some views around Barnstaple for you.

From the swollen waters of the tidal river Taw, to the town square with its newly renovated museum, to the leafy country lanes near where we live, the change in seasons is visible everywhere you look.

See where K’lee went with the prompt HERE.

Now we’ve shown you ours, it’s time for y’all to show us yours.
