When I think of “Stillness,” this weeks PhotoFriday challenge, I tend to think of a lake; an apparently unmoving body of water. (A lot of the other entries, to my eyes at least, don’t represent “Stillness.” Of course, mine may well miss the mark for them…)
Whatever its merits, this one was taken near Spooner Lake, which is very near Lake Tahoe.
I didn’t have an entry in the last challenge, so there’s no need to vote for me(!).
Incidentally, there was another PhotoFriday challenge with the theme “Stillness.” You can see my previous entry here. Tragically, I nearly used the same image again!
I had images in my mind of gleaming, bright, shiny metals but in the end, I thought this picture of a rusting cannon in Rhodes Town was a better photograph. And a better photograph is what PhotoFriday is all about!
A little late for PhotoFriday perhaps, but here’s my entry for this weeks challenge, “Blur.” I thought July would be a good time to visit Norway and see the sights, but the the weather had other plans…
Please also vote for my entry in last weeks challenge, “Curvy.” I’m entry number 66.
Of course, the person in this boat on Ha Long Bay is far from alone, which means I’m very much faking this weeks PhotoFriday challenge, “Solitude.” But he looks alone and the landscape is empty and beautiful so I think it fits the bill!
Please also vote for my entry in last weeks challenge, “Black and White.” I’m entry number 48.
Last year we went to Barcelona and visited the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s amazing, unfinished cathedral. The organ was beautiful but it was difficult to get a picture of, until I realised the Reflection — this weeks PhotoFriday theme — of the stained glass window worked pretty well. (Don’t tell anyone, but my wife zoomed in closer and got a better image that I did.)
Please also vote for my entry in last weeks challenge, “My obsession.” I’m entry number 56.
While a landscape is more typically about land, I didn’t really visit anywhere very far inland in the last year, hence this image of a walk between Perros-Guirec and Ploumanac’h in France as my entry in this weeks PhotoFriday challenge, “Landscape 2014.” In any case, the landscape here is influenced by the nearby sea so I don’t think I’m too far from the mark!
Please also vote for my entry in last weeks challenge, “Twilight.” I’m entry number 98.
