Friendly Friday: In Transit

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: In Transit.

Once again I am playing fast and loose with the prompt with photos before or after some form of travel.

The Long and Sometimes Winding Road

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things that are Long.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of the Beatles song The Long and Winding Road.

Two Roads in Monochrome

ThIs is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Roads.

I decided to go with a post of contrasts, an impassable road in summer and a passable with care road in a winter snow storm.

CFFC: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines

A contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines.

My first thought was of roads disappearing off in the distance.

Having spent part of the winter making digital copies of my slide archives I had found several photos of roads suitable for the challenge so I decided to go with my initial thought.

Throwback Thursday

Snow and Hoarfrost Covered Oak Tree

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the late 1980s. Back then England still had spells of winter weather.

One wintry spell saw me on a back road near the town of Audlem in southern Cheshire. When I saw this snow and hoarfrost covered Oak tree I had to find somewhere to park and get a photo. I have posted a similar shot before but this version has more of the branches of a second Oak tree in the top of the frame and slightly more road in the foreground.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Christmas Memories

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Christmas Memories.

I came up with two very different photos for this challenge.

A childhood Christmas memory, Viennese Shortcakes according to my mother’s recipe. Also known as Viennese Whirls according to Google. These were made yesterday following my mother’s recipe.
