Another week and another WordPress photography challenge.  And the theme this week is Atop. The above image is my final image processed in Lightroom.  And for this challenge I used an image taken way back in 2014 at the top of Bodiam Castle overlooking the East Sussex Countryside.

WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe

WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe

Wooden Bridge

Wooden bridge that spans the River Coe at Glencoe in Scotland.

Looking back over previous photo challenges that WordPress curates and I found one called Path. A path comes in many shapes and forms, like the image above. Which is of a wooden bridge.  A path is made by using different materials that enable a person to walk across an area with ease.  It could be concrete, decking, timber planks, paving slabs or even shingle.  A path will lead you from one place to another.

The week gone by and one step closer

Flower of the Week

A photograph of a purple flower taken at Great Comp Gardens with Powder Paint Effect

Slowly and surely I am getting more and more mobile.  And I am counting down the days until the 20th March when I see my consultant and I hope on that particular day he says I can remove these awful surgical stockings and that I am fit enough to drive.  Being copped up is doing my head in to be honest.  With just over one week to go before seeing him, I know these final few days are going to drag.

On the roadside - Loch Lomond

A photograph of Loch Lomond taken at Inveruglas in Scotland, processed with a Powder Paint Effect

Our holiday last year to Scotland was a little marred by my hip pain and lack of mobility.  I would have loved to walk the Highlands and go off the beaten track a little, just to photograph the amazing scenery.  But unfortunately that was not to be so most of the photos I took were in fact taken by the roadside. And for the WordPress photo challenge called The Road Taken, for me this was a perfect example of a photograph being taken on the road.

Allington Locks

A photograph of the River Medway taken at Allington Locks near Maidstone in Kent

It was so lovely to get out last Monday, even though I didn’t walk far.  However, I did send him off on an expedition down the locks at Allington, near Maidstone in Kent.  The landscape was barren and the trees were still bare but you could see the start of spring slowly appearing in the landscaped area.

On the River at Allington Locks, Maidstone, Kent.

Whey hey, I am home from hospital.  My right hip has been replaced and I can now walk without that excruciating pain. Taking it careful for the next 6 weeks to stop any chance of dislocation I am finding hard.  However, I am so glad that awful pain has finally gone.  I was only in hospital for 3 nights.  And by Monday I felt good enough to have a little stroll along the banks of the River Medway at Allington Locks, near Maidstone in Kent.

Stormy Skies

A photograph of a valley taken from the A820 in Scotland as we headed towards Mallaig.

What can anybody say about Scotland and its inhabitants?  Firstly they would have to say the locals are friendly, helpful and very welcoming and the landscape is breath-taking, especially through the Highlands.  The only thing is they have a lot of rain. And with the rain comes some very stormy skies which within themselves are a photographer’s delight. Continue reading →

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Shadows

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Shadows

Shadows

A shadowed path at Leeds Castle near Maidstone in Kent, processed in Topaz Impression and Powder Paint Effect.

As many of you may have gathered by now I am an avid Lightroom User and if I can do all of my processing in Lightroom I will.  Have WordPress excelled themselves?  You bet they have, but I will get back to that in a moment.  First of all it seems absolutely ages since I did a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge and this week’s theme is called Shadow.  And I found the perfect photograph from Leeds Castle which has loads of shadows in it.
