Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trail

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trail.

As my walks around the neighborhood involve a selection of trails I thought I would go with a selection of photos taken when walking them rather than photos of the actual trails.

Some Dandelion clocks taken on a walk after the challenge was posted.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Less is More

The new Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Less is More.

As I had been in a minimalist mood for a while before my accident I thought it was a good excuse to review some of the photos.

First, a group of berries. I’m surprised nothing had eaten them.

Firethorn berries

The new Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge is Sphere.

It got me thinking about spheres in nature, subjects such as flowers, fruit and berries.

These are Firethorn berries also known as Pyracantha. These were photographed in Nantwich, Cheshire, England. It’s a popular plant with some gardeners grown for their decorative flowers and fruit. The fruit (berries) are also popular with some bird species in the winter.
