Lens Artist Photo Challenge. LINES


The topic is ‘leading lines’ so here are two images.  This top one was shot in the early morning sun yesterday….. and I guess a classic leading you in set of lines.  But in this instance maybe the photograph is of the lines themselves as opposed to where they take you.

The second image was taken some 3 years ago when we used to get snow in January.  Here the lines form horizontal  steps to the back ground…


Two ideas for Tina’s weekly challenge….. Here is the link to the blog:-

Question…. is it Autumn or Winter ?


Morning sun soon welted the overnight frost but its warmth also started to draw the moisture from the ground to form a low level mist.

It could also fool you whilst walking in the woods that it was really autumn and not the 20th of January and winter….


Any early morning ice soon vanished from the Lake now all calm…


All said and done, days like this,  do make you wonder just what has happened to our historical seasonal expectations.
