K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning (or afternoon, depending on your timezone) and welcome to this week’s installment of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with today’s theme chosen by me.

I picked Contrast, giving you free reign to choose your subject and interpret the prompt pretty much however you like.

For my contribution, I’ve taken yet more photos of our ever-evolving Mound; the focal point of our garden and the subject of the weekend’s work in the sunshine. I’ve chosen to use black and white, to highlight the difference in the texture and form between the various plants and the decorative features.

Check out K’lee’s photos of the day, HERE.

*****

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.

Garden evolution…

The perfect end to a gloriously hot and relaxing long weekend; capturing the changing face of the garden in the sunshine…

Photo Sans Frontiers

It’s good to have a document of how our garden has grown from the unkempt and overgrown blank canvas that we began with, to the oasis of colour, form and texture that we have made for ourselves.

I’ve posted many photos of The Mound, both here and on Diary of an Internet Nobody, but it’s a continually evolving part of the garden which started off like this…

…a dead tree stump, overgrown with bluebells, wild garlic and long, unidentified green things, along with a few stems of ash and hawthorn (from seeds of the trees which used to overhang the patio).

And in the last week or so, leading up to today and the glorious bank holiday sunshine, the garden now looks this…

Finally; it might not look exactly like this, but here was Audrey’s fairy garden, beneath the fiery red canopy of the pieris, after a little…

Picture this: An Autumn walk…

The weather has been pretty kind to us in the last couple of weeks, but there’s definitely an autumnal chill in the air this weekend.
A perfect time then, to go for a brisk walk and try to capture the beauty of the turning seasons on camera, and what with all the multi-coloured foliage, skeletal structures of seed heads everywhere and the profusion of berries, it didn’t take long for me find plenty of ideal subjects to photograph.

I hope you enjoy this taste of Autumn…
