#SundayStills Monthly Colour Challenge ~ Shades of #Red #Nature #Photography

Welcome to the Sunday Stills Monthly Colour Challenge, hosted by Terri Webster Shrandt.


The colour choice is month is red. It’s an intense colour with many shades and is connected to emotions…love, passion, anger and danger to name a few. Red is abundant in nature, especially flowers.

My friend and I did the Afternoon Tea Bus Tour a few years ago, taking in the sights of London.

The dove cote was dressed in a red bow for Christmas and the canal boat passed under the bridge where we were standing.

I’ve posted this photo before but I love it. It was Joshua’s first Christmas and he and Finn very considerately slept through while the grown ups enjoyed Christmas dinner in peace.

A pretty and unusual little seating area.

I think this photo is having a second outing as well. It’s an interesting and quirky little building situated on the quay in Conwy, Wales. It’s just 72 inches wide and 122 inches in height and was actually inhabited until 1900, the last occupant being a 6ft 3in fisherman.

And the red carpet in the unpretentious 11th century church of St John the Baptist in the historic hamlet of Edlington, situatted in a beautiful valley in Northumberland.

  1. I am all for recycling favorite photos, Cathy! The small house is so charming! I love the sleeping baby and Finn on the red sofa–adorable! A wonderful collection of reds and UK/Europe has the most colorful forms of public transportation. Thanks for sharing this week!

  2. Lately, I barely have time to “Like” and share things my online friends are sharing, but I simply had to comment on this selection of photos, Cathy. Amazing, and the stories behind some of them are wonderful. The tiny house just blew my mind. (I’m think the last occupant must have slept standing up!) 😀 Thanks so much for the beautiful images, and for the extra info on each of them. Great post!
