Tuesday Photo Challenge – Coast

Along a coast filled with moments…

Welcome to week 184 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! For those looking for last weeks’ round up, I have started working on it, but, as I’m traveling, will be a day late getting all your great posts rounded up.

After a week of magnificent sunsets, I thought that I’d continue with a theme that was allied to last week’s theme in terms of location. When I looked for possible themes, I was surprised that it was available… So this week, your challenge is to find a Coast and share your impressions of it, or simply Coast along in your automobile and enjoy the countryside floating by.

Yes, Coast is one of those words that can be taken into several directions, so feel free to follow any of these directions and let your creative thoughts explore what lies ahead! More than anything, have some fun with the theme! Can’t wait to see your ideas!

Here’s a coastal evening…

Nubble Light at Cape Neddick

This came from a nighttime excursion to Cape Neddick, Maine, where the lighthouse is decorated for the holiday season every year. Using a long exposure, we get a sense of peace across the scene, as the water calms down…

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

So, coast along and find your coast moment!

Liverpool in Sunlight

At the End of a Storm…

I’m visiting Liverpool for the weekend with the ultimate goal of seeing mighty Liverpool FC taken on Tottenham Hotspurs at Anfield. My first 24 hours in this lovely city were pretty rainy, but then the sky started clearing up and the Sun came out!

So I thought I’d share some of the photos that I took today during this wonderful time.

There are plenty of additional photos, but I hope that these provide you with a bit of the flavor…

Friday Mystery Location – 2019 #022

Where can you find this much color?

Here comes the twenty-second mystery location post of this year….

After the difficulty with last week’s Dryburgh Abbey in Scotland, I thought that I’d go for something much easier… Let’s see if that is the case! I know that at least one person will get this one!

Not perfect weather, but it’s still interesting!

Nice colors stacking!

The hammer could fall on this topic pretty quickly!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 182

Storm clouds gather

Welcome to the 182nd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

The content of your back catalog of images and memories is truly stunning! It was an absolute pleasure to read all of your posts and I very much appreciate the effort that you put into them. I hope that the memories were a fun experience for you as well!

Here is another one from my back catalog…

Storm clouds gather over Ball Hill.
Storm clouds over Ball Hill

This is a photo from one of my early posts in this blog (back in 2011); Ball Hill used to be part of my daily commute and produced a great number of amazing views over the years (including the Yoga Tree). On this day the clouds were rolling in and looked to be carrying the threat of more snow…

Please enjoy the following blog posts:

  1. Nicole takes us deep in her post in Une Photo, Un Poéme, both in going back to a trip to Romania and the events at that location…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sunset

As one day ends…

Welcome to week 183 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! Last week’s round up will arrive tomorrow, as I’ve been focused on family over the weekend due to my father-in-law, Bob, passing away on Friday night.

In memory of Bob, I’ve selected the theme of Sunset for this week. As we celebrate a life filled with service to family, country and community, there’s also the beauty that surrounds us. Bob enjoyed the beach and ocean, so this is one image that made me think of him right away.

For this challenge, please share your favorite sunset moments, whether they are at the beach, at the city or over the mountains. I’m very much looking forward to seeing your images here.

Here’s a sunset at the beach…

Sunset at the Beach

This shot was at the end of a day of photography on a cold January day, where we got a great selection of shots at various beaches, some covered with snow and some pristine like this one…

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

Enjoy your sunsets and live each day to its fullest!

Friday Mystery Location – 2019 #021

Walk across the grass

Here comes the twenty-first mystery location post of this year….

There were some very accurate responses to last week’s post, one including the Google map coordinates where I was standing! Well done!! This week’s offering might prove a bit more challenging, but I fully expect that some among you might know where this is…

Perfect weather for visiting this place…

Green grass and blue skies…

Looking forward to seeing who might have the answer here!
