Sunlight

I’ve had a lovely time this month noticing how the sunlight catches and enhances things.

Our ‘One-a-Week’ Photo Challenge Prompt this week is FENCE

Ronovan’s Haiku Prompts are EYE and FADE

The mitten on the post must have been there a while as it was green with algae. Since starting to do beach cleans, I see all litter and dropped items in a new light. They are all potential art materials with a human back story. It did feel slightly weird taking it from it’s post, but I am pretty certain it’s owner is not likely to return for it. It will go with other found clothing I have and see what art work it might inspire.

The top of the fence post is a little world of its own

The photos were taken on a walk from Nine Wells towards Solva (Pembrokeshire) along the coastal path.dscf0156

 

I was walking from the treehouse as the sun was going down.

The footpath goes between those two cottages.

and into the Drax Arms for my birthday treat, a scrummy Sunday Roast – Thank you lovely walking friend! ❤ (my birthday is on Friday, 11th)

Rounding off the excursion with the obligatory visit to the church, which is huge and full of amazing wooden carvings and this rather sweet sign by a gravestone

Wishing you all a snug evening. ❤

 

Photo Challenge Round Up – Happy

Doing this round up makes me feel very  🙂    HAPPY!   🙂

An extra photo from me, taken at the end of a blissful day spent with Big Bro and Little Bro pootling, pottering and beach-combing on Charmouth Beach  yesterday. Oh how lucky and HAPPY I feel on days like thisDSCF8020

More photos for happiness:

Jane: a feast for the eyes in this post

Cathy: someone knows her well

Melissa: so much to enjoy in this post, with the huge bonus of an Irish poem written in Irish and with the English translation.

Rosalind: that dog is almost laughing with happiness

Christina: ‘Celebrate good times, c’mon!’

Ali at Thimberlina: this makes me beam – fab 80s fun.

Roz: Happy Hoppy!

Craftmanicmommy: has linked in with a Quote that fits so well with the theme. If you look at her profile picture – that would definitely fit the photographic element for HAPPY.

Denis at Haiku Hound: thought that the photo of his dog Charlie in this post was a good fit for the theme – I agree! Pop across and see what you think.

Andre: oooooo! yes those crystal clear waters would make me happy for sure! And there is also a Haiku to enjoy.

10 entries to see in our 52 week Photo Challenge this week! Yikes! That’s so exciting! Thank you so much everyone for joining in. I just love the variety and sweet glimpses of your worlds.

Can’t leave this theme without a link to Pharrell Williams’s wonderfully uplifting song:
