Blow the whistles, pop the cork, we’re off!

Another year of getting together to share our photographic take on a one word prompt.

For 2018 this will be a Monthly Meet-Up starting on the first Tuesday of each month.

What could be better at the start of the year than to be looking out for SPARKLES …..

The Sparkling water of the Fleet in the teeth of an icy wind

winter walk by the Fleet

a wooden table in the woods …sparkles, frost on sawn woodCrochet Christmas Snowflakescrochet snowflakes

with added Swarovski crystals


crystals and snowflakes

sunshine on water


and to warm us up a bit, photos taken in the Caribbean last April


Nevis sparkles


It took many photos to capture the splash of the fishing net hitting the water, but I got it, and if you look closely the splash is sparkling in the sunshine.

Click on any photo to see it larger.

For a sparkly finale – this water feature is in a narrow corridor in an underground shopping centre in Japan, photographed in November 2015


Feel free to join in any time during the Month of January with your Sparkles – one photograph or many, current shots, archive post links, they are all welcome. Just leave a link in the Comments of this post.

Let’s SPARKLE together!


Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me prompt suggestions, I will get the full list together for February when the prompt is WARM

Happy Snapping

    Sparkle, sparkle! Beautiful in summer and in winter. .Right now, with the extreme cold, Maine is one big sparkle.

  14. What beautiful sparkles, especially the crocheted snowflakes with added crystals! So, the photo challenge this year will be monthly rather than weekly? Do you have any objections to me doing my own photo challenge in the intervening weeks at all? I think I’d miss doing it weekly?
