Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Last night, after a beautiful bright blue day, there was a spectacular sunset…..

In this photo the sun is on the right and towards the left there is a sort of prism type of thing-I only see them occasionally!

Here’s the prism thing a little closer….please let me know if you know it has a name!

I think these photos qualify for the theme of ‘Change’.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grid

This week we have been asked to make a grid the centrepiece of our photos.

Meet Sputnik Spider-a bold and brave fellow!

Sputnik Spider had worked hard all his life-constantly trying to find the best and most ingenious design for his webs. He had heard of the latest new fangled ideas of webs based on a 'grid'. Oh yes, he was pleased with the result and declared "Oh yes, I am pleased with this result!"

Sputnik Spider had worked hard all his life-constantly trying to find the best and most ingenious design for his webs. He had heard of the latest new fangled ideas of webs based on a ‘grid’. Oh yes, he was pleased with the result and declared “Oh yes, I am pleased with the result! I shall call it Gridweb mark 1”

What Sputnik Spider hadn’t bargained on was the weather! Imagine his horror upon awakening the next morning to find his Gridweb destroyed by an area of depression which had caused low atmospheric pressure which in turn had caused it to rain!

Look!

Oh dear, barely any of his Gridweb left at all!

Sputnik Spider thought that the drops of rain, whilst quite pretty, were a blooming' pain in the neck!

Sputnik Spider was no slacker fortunately and he was soon back in action on his Gridweb mark 2!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic 3

A powerful monochromatic image is composed of a gradient of a single colour, and has an emphasis on texture and composition.

So here are some more…..

(Note to my dear M-R…I hope these are generally a little more pure in their ‘monochromaticity!’)

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected 3

These were taken early in the morning and the spider is covered with dew…in fact you could say that it was a ‘misty moisty morning’ but I didn’t meet an old man clothed all in leather!!

Definitely a ‘Connected’ spider!
