Today’s challenge is to publish a post that includes a new element. So it could be a post that includes something you haven’t used before like a video clip, embed an Instagram photo, a tweet or anything new. This was another good exercise. So far I have learnt how to use widgets, changed my theme, introduced myself, updated my ‘About me’ section, evaluated my blog name and went back to look at what I wanted my blog to be about when I first started it. It’s been a very beneficial challenge. I must admit is was much easier keeping up to date when I was on holidays but I have just gone back to work and will have to make an extra effort to keep up now!
I have used photos in my posts before but haven’t used an Instagram photo, so I followed the instructions and copied the URL of the picture I’d chosen and here it is (I hope):
This picture was taken on the beach at Byron Bay in northern NSW Australia in October 2013, We were there for my nephew’s wedding later that day. I went for a walk along the beach at sunrise and had this beautiful sky appear. I took the photo on my phone and later enhanced it a bit with Instagram and posted it with the caption “Waterfall of Sunshine”.
I love this photo as it shows the sun coming through the clouds in a particularly moody fashion – not your classic sunrise shot! I’d be interested to know what you think of it if anyone wants to comment.
