K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time for your Monday dose of photography, with K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which I decided was going to be about; Fungi.

The days are already getting damper and darker earlier, perfect conditions for some of the more peculiar and bizarre of our local flora to thrive. Here are a few I captured, in all their alien-like glory.

You can see what K’lee brings to the party HERE, but now you can show us what fun-guys you really are…

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning and welcome to another week, starting with your Monday dose of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today with a theme chosen by K’lee.

Now, his prompt was pretty enigmatic; A Clockwork’d Orange, meaning I had to stretch to find something apposite to post, but I think I found a little gem from the archives to meet the brief.

First of all, going with the most obvious inspiration, some photos that feature the colour orange…

…followed by the “Clockwork’d” part of the deal, hmm…

How about this little clip I made a few years ago, called Satsuma Rescue?

Ok, it’s not clockwork, exactly, but it’s stop motion and that has a similar feel, doesn’t it?

Anyway, see what you think.

(You may need to watch it twice, but keep your eye on the little fella, he’s going to give the final stranded piece of fruit a helping hand back into the bowl)

After you’ve looked at K’lee’s post, which is HERE when he’s ready, show us how you interpreted his mysterious prompt with your own offerings.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s Monday again, and it’s time for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge to bring some light to the start of your week, with this week’s prompt being; Let the sun shine in.

It was predictably wet and grey here at the weekend, so I’ve plundered the archive for a few shots to brighten your day.

Now K’lee is ready, his post is HERE.

But now you can show us how you shine.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Happy Friday everyone, and welcome to another prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week hosted by me.

For your theme today, I decided to redress the balance for my cynical rainy summer holidays prompt from a couple of weeks ago and give you a shining ray of inspiration; Let the sun shine in.

Pretty simple, right?

Or not; you decide.

So cross your fingers for a sunny weekend and show us your brighter side on Monday.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

The sky’s the limit on today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because on Friday K’lee set the theme as; A Cloudy Configuration.

I don’t think that needs any additional explanation, so without further ado, here are my offerings for this bank holiday Monday showcase.

K’lee is HERE and you should go check his post out now, before you to show us your contributions.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Well look at this, another on-time prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Not only that, but K’lee and I have sorted out the slight confusion caused by my blog switchover last week and are back on the same page. So much so, that K’lee has chosen to incorporate the aforementioned breakdown in communication into this week’s theme.

I’ll let him explain;

” This past Monday I posted a new challenge post in my buddy Dale’s and my ongoing, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge series. It was Dale’s turn to do so, but as he was rearranging his blog at the time, I wasn’t able to see his post for the challenge on Friday and just thought I’d spare him the trouble.
‘Get your blog the way you want it, then we’ll take things from there’, was my thinking.

Comes to find out, Dale DID post a new prompt titled: RAINY DAYS.
The prompt I posted was, LIVING IN THE LIGHT…

…hmmm, what to do for this week as we BOTH uploaded a post this past Monday???

Well, as I was out on my walk, taking in the early morning sights of San Francisco as it woke up, I had an epiphany! What if I offered up a prompt today (Friday!), COMBINING the two concepts of both Dale’s last challenge post along with my own??? LIVING IN THE LIGHT combined with RAINY DAYS equals???

…drum roll please:

A CLOUDY CONFIGURATION!!!

*****

So there you have it, give us some cloudscapes to marvel at on Monday.

I for one am rather pleased about this prompt, because I have literally dozens of cloud photos to choose from and I’m sure the English summer will provide me with plenty of material over the weekend, too.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning, welcome to a new week and a new edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge. I hope your weekend weather wasn’t all that helpful to you for Friday’s prompt, since the theme I set you was; Rainy days, but chances are, if you’re in the UK anyway, you will have got plenty of inspiration precipitation.

As it was, I set the prompt when it was raining and then, typically, the sun came out. But I didn’t have long to wait until the next shower, downpour or clap of thunder came along, because it has been a pretty wet and windy couple of days.

So I had no problem capturing some before, during and after images of the rain to illustrate today’s post; starting with two shots taken on Exmoor as I drove back from Bristol airport, just after sunrise yesterday, where I was dropping off a friend from America who was visiting for Audrey’s birthday.

The first shows the sun shining through the clouds, looking back the way I’d come, the second is of the weather system building up over the river estuary in the distance, where I was heading home.

By the time I got back home, the black clouds were already heavy and it wasn’t long before they unburdened themselves over us…

…but, in between the deluges, I caught the reflection of a tree and a rare glimpse of some blue sky in a sedum leaf.

Due to some miscommunication between K’lee and myself, we appear to have both posted prompts without the other knowing about it, so why not pop over to K’lee’s place to see what he made of his prompt; Living in the Light.

I assure you that normal service will be resumed next week.

But now you can shower us with your offerings.

The Night Garden.

Having spent a few weeks getting our new garden looking nice, I finally got round to putting the candle holders out last night and decided to try some long exposure shots when it got dark.

A few carefully placed solar lights added some extra illumination and, with a little digital fiddling the results really are rather lovely.
