Mornings are the best part of the day – Weekly Photo Challenge

Anyone for tea?This week's photo challenge asks for an image of what a typical 'morning' looks like.  Every morning starts with a cup of tea in a mug when I'm at home, but as I'm visiting my parents at the moment, we use the lovely white cup and saucer set for the first of our numerous …

Sunshine on my trees

Early morning sun hits the trees - Day 4 of Seven Day Nature Challenge This is my day 4 entry in the Seven Days of Nature challenge - my first entry was a solitary image of a tree in the paddock, my second photo was an early morning shot (probably one of my favourite photos) and my third photo …

Through the trees

Looking through the trees - Day 3 of Seven Day Nature Challenge This is my third entry in the Seven Days of Nature challenge - my first entry is also a solitary image but completely different to this photo, whereas my second day photo is a bit similar.  What can I say, I like mornings! Do …

Early morning light

morning light looking over the vineyard

Good morning!  It's mornings like this that make getting up early for a run worth all the effort.   I'm using this photo for Hugh's weekly photo challenge which this week is all about solitude. This photo says it all  - the world is quiet, the light is beautiful, the views spectacular and I'm all alone …

Remember what Bilbo used to say: ‘It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.' — J.R.R. Tolkien A great start to the day Another foggy photo for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge: Foggy Every …

A touch of frost

I couldn't have said it better myself! It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. John Burroughs (Winter Sunshine) I was on my way to work on a frosty freezing cold morning.  I had to …

Walk this way early birds!

I don't necessarily consider myself an early bird but I do love early morning runs/walks and usually on these outings I see the most amazing colours and light.   I try to capture them on my phone so that I can recall the beauty at a later date. My most recent picture is the steps to the beach …

A shaft of morning sunlight

I enjoy taking photos while I'm out and about and sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised with the results.   This photo is one of those moments! The shaft of morning sunshine on the left of the photo gave me a nice boost when I saw it. I didn't realise I had captured it quite so well! In colour …
