Pink Rose

A photograph of a pink rose taken back in October 2018 at Hall Place in Kent and entered into Cee’s Flower of the Day Photography Challenge.  I couldn’t believe this was photographed at the end of October, as the roses were still in full bloom.

A Photo a Week Challenge: View

Scotney Castle

One of my favourite views is from the bridge that spans the lake at Old Scotney Castle and I thought this image would be an ideal image for Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge called View.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #56: Seascapes and/or Lakeshore

This week’s Lens-Artists challenge is set by Amy and is called Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #56: Seascapes and/or Lakeshore.

Oh, this challenge has me diving into my archived photos as seascapes, lakes and shores are one of our favourite things to photograph. So for this challenge, I am showcasing some images that we have taken over the years.

 

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #55: Dreamy

Sissinghurst Castle

The lens-artists challenge this week is set by Ann-Christine and is called Dreamy.  Even landscape photographs can be given a dreamy feeling to them, by just playing around with the clarity and texture sliders to give the image a soft like painted effect.

I also process flowers with a dreamy feel, especially roses.

Morden Hall Park

And of courses daffodils.

Once again, many thanks Ann-Christine for hosting this challenge.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #54: Detail

Canterbury

The challenge that was set by Patti for the Lens-Artists detail challenge, instantly had me thinking about an image that was taken whilst we visited Canterbury Cathedral.  The detailing in this ceiling is exquisite and so beautiful.  Many thanks to Patti for hosting the challenge.

Flower of the Day – 1st August 2019

Yellow flowers from Emmetts

One of our very first gardens to visit back in 2012 was Emmett Gardens in Kent, which is owned and maintained by the National Trust.  As we strolled around the gardens we came across these beautiful yellow/white bell-shaped flowers and I thought they would be great for Cee’s Flower of the Day Photography Challenge.

New Direction… A year on… of my #postaday challenge.

366 posts

Back in July 2018, the 31st to be precise, I added my first entry to Cee’s Flower of the Day Photography Challenge.

I decided back then to do a #postaday challenge and as many challenges are either weekly or monthly, I needed a challenge that was daily. Cee’s challenge fit the bill and this particular challenge has led me on a path where I found one aspect of photography I truly love. Floral Photography. Today marked my 366 days of posting to the challenge.

Naturally, as I love this challenge, I will continue to enter my floral images. Maybe not every day, because I think at the moment I have bloggers fatigue. 😀 😀 😀 How I admire Cee and other bloggers who manage to post every day. And I admit at times I have had to play catch-up. And over holiday times I have had to schedule posts. But boy have I enjoyed the challenge. I tip my hat to daily bloggers… they are the salt of the earth when it comes to the blogging world.

New Direction

Over the last few months and week’s I have tried hosting challenges.. at first, they seemed to get a few entries.. then the entries died off. I do enjoy doing the challenges. And thanks to all those that have entered, your contributions have made the challenges really enjoyable. But, I think I will stick with just one challenge. And that challenge will be down to you, the readers, to decide which challenge I will continue, in the future.

Again thanks to all the readers for their contributions, they have been greatly appreciated.

Until my next post.. have a great week… and I will leave you with a collection of floral images from the past year.
