Weekly Photo Challenge – Illumination – Daybreak, Midday and Evening

13 Jan

1    I’d been contemplating the Weekly Photo Challenge and then woke to the beautiful illumination of first the sky by the sun, then of the chimneys opposite and the cottage, and then of the painting in the study.

2   We had a walk in the bright chill along the low cliffs at Godrevy, the only sound that of the sea, and the midday sun continued its illuminations of everything around me. I just love how the sun beams through the empty snail shell.

3   The last photo is of our new fence lit up last June by the evening sun.

PS Would you believe I missed this spectacular sunset?    I’ve been given permission to show you this one by Paul Hoskin.

    Sally, what kind of camera are you using to capture these wonderful pictures?

      It’s a Canon S100 and I love it! I treated myself to a rather expensive Fuji X10 but it’s not half as good! The zoom and the macro are much better on the S100 and it’s small enough to go in my pocket or my (little) bag so I can have it with me everywhere I go! 🙂

      Thank you for calling them ‘wonderful’! That means a lot. 🙂

    Dog on a mission photo, now that one catches my fancy and imagination.

        Yes lone dog shtufffs in the wings and being tinkered with as we speak. At my age I cannot imagine life without a dog in the lead.

    Oh I love grey clouds! And your luminous snails shells are so pretty!

      There were so many empty shells. I wondered why.:)

    Marilyn and I had bet that you would have put a photo of tonight’s wonderful sunset on your blog. We were obviously wrong but the sunrise will do1 John Xx

      Me too. I watched him for ages in and out of the rock pools but this was my favourite photo of him, striding out and having fun – and no people in sight. 🙂

    Gorgeous pictures! My post today was about my terrible photography skills, so this is inspiring for me x
