WP Weekly Photo Challenge….Transformation

via Photo Challenge: Transformation   

Fishermens Huts, Lindisfarne

Ultimate re-cycling…

A favourite image of a favourite location.  When some old wooden Fishing Boats can no longer go to sea…you simply upturn them , make a door and you transform them into Fishermen’s sheds.

These old boats are at Lindisfarne on Holy Island, Northumberland.

The ultimate recycling transformation and my suggestion for this weeks WP Photo Challenge.

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Ooh Shiny


An Arctic Sunset 

My “Ooh Shiny“…the topic for this weeks DP Photo Challenge…has to be sunsets.  Hard to resist grabbing the camera and trying my best to do one of natures wonders justice.

Each is very different, unique to the moment a moment that constantly changes, a moment that is unpredictable and often sneaks up on us when least expected.

The sunset above was one such evening.  A cloudy evening at mid-summer as we headed towards the Arctic Circle the cloud suddenly eased away just in time to give us another wondrous display of colour…… another Ooh Shiny for my collection.

Just a suggestion for this weeks challenge.  See what others have suggested on this link:-

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Evanescent

via Photo Challenge: Evanescent


A Springtime Beck….

The sound of rushing and sparklingly clean water over rocks, tumbling down a rocky beck overhung with sweet smelling Hawthorne blossom, a beck soon to be swallowed by lush new ferns……a magical moment in time, great for all the senses and an ideal moment to store in the memory bank…

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Danger

via Photo Challenge: Danger!


Danger Rock Falls …..But only on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays!

It is inevitable that Road Signs and other statutory signs will predominate in this weeks challenge…..So here is just another warning sign of possible Danger !….there are so many such signs that perhaps we take then all for granted.

That is obviously the case in point here. The Local Authority is just so used to posting signs that it never reflects on the Humour they can create.

Here there is a real danger of rock falls along the road….but link it with the sign below is and it could suggest that such falls are only between the hours of 9am and 7pm on Saturdays and Sundays and on Bank Holidays.

Trouble is no one has told the rocks….

A humorous submission for this weeks DP Photo Challenge on Danger.
