Weekend Challenge: Scenic

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Scenic.

I had a few ideas for the challenge but I wasn’t really happy with any of them. Then I thought about a small set of photos all taken on a back road in southern Cheshire. It was the scenic route into the village of Audlem and I used to take it frequently rather than using the more direct main road.

Throwback Thursday

Snow Covered Farmland

Throwback Thursday travels back to southern Cheshire, England in the late 1980s.

Getting up to find it had snowed overnight I did a tour of southern Cheshire trying to make the most of the snow. This shot was taken on a back road north of the village of Audlem. The 13th century St James’ Church in Audlem is on the horizon.

Cosmic Photo Challenge

Audlem Church in silhouette.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week is Shadows, Shapes and Silhouettes.

I had lots of ideas for this challenge. Then I thought about this photo. It’s shot of St James’ Church, Audlem, Cheshire, England silhouetted by the setting sun.

It was taken in the mid 1980s and sat ignored in my slide files until I started copying them with a digital camera. It’s strange, since copying and editing the slide the shot has grown on me.
