This week, the Daily Post Photo Challenge is to share a shot of something I saw, did, or experienced on the way: a photo not of my destination, but of an interesting thing along the way. The unexpected beauty in a mundane moment.
On the way to visit my sister I noticed that this field of wheat had lines of wheat piled up- I found out later that these are called ” hay stooks” apparently the purpose of these practices is to protect unthreshed grain, hay or straw from moisture until it can be picked up and brought into long-term storage. Luckily the gate was easy to climb so I grabbed a quick shot before I went “on my way”.
For this Weekly Photo Challenge – the theme is broken.
Rust and decay
As you walk through the woodlands at the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall. You will come across the beautiful Mud Maid, fast asleep under the trees. The sculpture was made by local artists Sue Hill and her brother Pete.
She is enveloped in moss and ivy – retaining both her modesty and her mystery

This post is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge from the Daily Post
Here is our entry for the Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge. The topic is Force of Nature
Wind has shaped these trees, but they still provide shelter for local sheep
Here, in the south west of England, we are lucky not to have tremendous weather events. But we do get a lot of wind on the moors here. Trees that have been wind shaped since they started growing are a common sight on the moors and are evidence of the force of nature.. a more persistent and quieter force, but still effective.
For Cee’s Fun Foto challenge this week, the topic is pink. I have lots of pink flower photos, but have tried for a couple of different ideas as well.
