Elemental Nature

This week in the Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge, the challenge is “Five Elements”. This week you have an opportunity to interpret metal, wood, water, fire, and/or earth with your favorite photos to express “…the only home we’ve ever known”. Feel free to choose one, two… or all five elements. Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #47: Five Elements I’veContinue reading “Elemental Nature”

Golden Light

My daughter and I went out for a walk in the woods by the river this afternoon. We’re both tired out now, but it was a lovely walk. The sun was low and the leaves were golden. The light and the leaves together were beautiful. I’m not sure my photos entirely capture the feeling, butContinue reading “Golden Light”

Beech

My Beech tree is changing colour beautifully although there’s a long way to go until all the green is gone. The changed leaves look lovely and golden brown in the sun 🙂 Inspired by the Lens Artists Photo Challenge: Changing or changeable I just discovered this new photo challenge (even though it has been goingContinue reading “Beech”

Autumn is coming

Even though I love the spring (and summer), I am looking forward to the autumn arriving. The house feels more cosy and inviting with the heating on and lights glowing in the dark. We’ll snuggle under blankets and I’ll crochet more warm things. In the day time I’ll be able to go for walks andContinue reading “Autumn is coming”

Anticipation

I spend a lot of time anticipating what’s coming next. I do of course enjoy what’s around me right now, but often when walking round the garden or in the countryside I’m looking for signs of what’s coming next. Waiting for buds to bloom or leaves to change. In the winter I’m waiting for signsContinue reading “Anticipation”

After the flowers

After the flowers have passed, we sometimes think all the beauty of the plant has gone, and we don’t think about enjoying the next stage. I’m growing wildflowers so I’m keen to let them do as nature intended and am still observing their development. You can see the structure and shape of the plants inContinue reading “After the flowers”

Soothing Light

I was looking for photos on the Weekly Photo Challenge theme of ‘relax’. Initially I tried to capture my cat relaxing with my daughter, but being a black cat, he’s not terribly photogenic I find, and this was the best I could do: So I started thinking about a different approach. Rather than something orContinue reading “Soothing Light”

Frosty Leaves

Yesterday morning, there was a frost and all the fallen leaves were looking pretty with a frosty coating. Sums up this time of year of autumn moving into winter, with the autumn leaves and the cold frost. Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

Autumn by the river

As I mentioned, last weekend I took a long walk through the woods down by the river. It was beautiful! I’m glad I went then because this weekend is mostly grey and damp and we’ve had a lot of wind during the week which will have stripped of some of these lovely leaves. The onlyContinue reading “Autumn by the river”
