Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26 – Distance #Photography #RedArrows

Hugh chose ‘Distance’ for this weeks challenge. These photos were taken around three years ago. The Red Arrows always gave a terrific display during  Lifeboat Week at Lyme Regis up until last year. They performed free of charge as a thank you to the RNLI but when the search and rescue services changed over from the RAF to a civilian contractor the price for a display was quoted at over £12,000 and likely to rise. Not unexpectedly the RNLI was unable to pay the fee. The good news is local businesses and organisations have managed to organise a Red Arrows display for this year’s Lifeboat Week.

This week Hugh’s challenge is to take or choose a photo that depicts music. 

This jukebox was in an apartment we rented in St Ives, Cornwall. It was a novel piece of furniture – we never did get round to trying it out.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 23 – Season #Photography #Spring

Ronovan Hester is hosting Hugh’s weekly photo challenge and this week’s topic is season. As Ronovan says, it can mean a lot of things and I’ve chosen to interpret it as Spring. Here are two very different Spring days.

The Buddleia flowered quite early on this particular occasion because of the warm spring.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 22 – Group #Photography #Dogs

For Hugh’s photo challenge this week I’ve chosen two photos. The first is playtime after an agility class. You’d wonder that they had any energy left, but as you can see, the dogs enjoyed their free time.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20 – Solitude #Photography

Hugh’s photo challenge this week is solitude. For me this means some alone time and that’s always an early morning walk with my dog. The photograph was taken a few years ago in a small Oxfordshire village and this was the scene for over a week. I loved those morning walks…and so did my dog. Continue reading

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 19 – Gap #Photography

For Hugh’s challenge this week I’ve chosen this photo taken in Boston. I like the way the buildings are in the shade but through the gap between them the Marriott Custom House is bathed in sunshine. The building was Boston’s first skyscraper. Continue reading

Hugh’s Weekly #Photo Challenge: Week 17 – Calm

This week Hugh’s challenge is to post a photo which symbolises calm. 

This photo was taken near the very pretty Nubble Lighthouse in Maine, USA. I love this view of the ocean, it was a beautiful, still day and every time I look at the photo it fills me with a sense of calm.  Continue reading

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 15 – Under

This week Hugh’s challenge is to take a photo of something that is under something else.

Maybe a person sat under a tree or sheltering under an umbrella from the rain or the sun? Dare you show us what lurks under your sofa or under that big stone in your garden?

This paraglider must have had a wonderful view of Lyme Bay and the Jurassic coastline while riding ‘Under the Wing.’ He’d dropped down a little over the beach at this point, but was soon off again, up and away.  Continue reading

Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 14 – Wrong Position

This week’s photo challenge from Hugh’s Views and News is ‘Wrong Position’. When you think you’ve taken the perfect photo…. until you see the finished result! 

Finn looks like he’s balancing a pot plant on his head. Pity really, it’s a nice picture of him. Continue reading

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 13 – Love

Hugh has chosen love as the theme for this week’s  photo challenge . Anything that says ‘love’ to you. I’m cheating a little because this isn’t a recent photo. It was taken just over three and a half years ago, after my grandson was born. I was there for the birth, and although I admit to not watching the business end of the proceedings, it was nevertheless a profoundly moving experience. Just glad it wasn’t me. But I love the end result to bits.  Continue reading

Hugh’s Weekly #Photo Challenge: Week 11 – Rust

This week Hugh’s challenge is to take a photo of something that is either covered in rust or beginning to rust.

This buoy is located on Conwy harbour. I’m not sure if it was ever in use as a navigation aid, or is just an adornment for the harbour. If I had to guess, I’d say it was used at one time and is now in retirement as a tourist attraction 🙂  But whichever, there are definite signs of rust.
