Now here in the South West of the UK, we have had a strange Summer…as is usual! Today it feels like that first day of Autumn.. although we have well over a month before the offical start. I decided not to be too grumpy about the weather and grabbed my camera for some raindrop photos.
This week’s Daily Post Photo challenge is Bridge.
This is the lovely spot of Bickleigh Mill, hidden away in Mid Devon. And a bridge, under a bridge !
My very literal interpretation of this weeks Photo Challenge. I am lucky that I live in a part of the UK were the historic and glamorous Age of the Steam is still very popular, with enthusiasts, volunteers and public supporting the restoration and appreciation of these glorious beasts. Tiny, the only surviving broad gauge locomotive lives at South Devon Railway Museum. Further details here
Living here on Exmoor, the landscape views can be spectacular, if a little bleak when its grey. This was taken on a lovely Spring day.
The blog post is in response to the Daily Post – Weekly Photo Challenge of ” Landscape”
Whenever I need to think, to restore myself, I need to get outside into the wonderful Devon countryside, preferably near water and away from people. This weeks Photo Challenge is to show my “Happy Place”. To be honest I have several, but here at Bickleigh Mill in Devon is one of them.
For this week’s Photo Challenge, the theme is boundaries. I have chosen two photos of man made boundaries, the first blends into the surrounding area
Photograph was taken near to Hestercombe in Somerset
The second is a little bit more “in -your-face”, taken in Bideford, Devon
The theme of the challenge this week is ROY G.BIV. – the colours of the rainbow. red, orange. yellow. green blue indigo and violet. This photo was taken at Bickleigh Mill in Devon.
Cee’s Weekly Fun Foto Challenge has come up with another great challenge.
Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple strudels, Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles, Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings, These are a few of my favourite things.
Well, I don’t have many food photos, so ponies and moonlight it is!!
Pony on Exmoor
These Exmoor ponies are one of the oldest breeds of wild pony in the UK. It is an endangered breed, but I am lucky enough to see them almost daily. Not “cream coloured” but very special.
And no geese, but a lovely full moon 🙂
We were very happy to be chosen as one of Cee’s featured Bloggers last week for “Bridge”. This week, her challenge is for landscape or seascape photos. Check out the other posts and her great blog here.
