Welcome to week 179 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
After a week of fuzzy logic, images and beings, I thought it might be a good time to turn to something a bit more permanent. So, I cam to think of Stone as a theme, which, to my surprise, I hadn’t used before. Of course, Stone is all around the globe at various levels, as some rise well above the horizon and others are submerged or buried under sand and dirt. There are many ways you can look at Stone, from the shiny and sparkly to the mundane granite pavers. Stone comes in many varieties, so please take on this challenge and find some of your favorite versions. Don’t worry about what Bob Dylan said, as we don’t all have to get stoned!
Have fun with this theme and bring back some cool stones to share with everyone!
Here’s a rather impressive stone fort…
The Cahergall Stone Fort was a rather serendipitous find during our trip to Ireland this year; as we were driving around the Ring of Kerry, I decided to take a little detour, which led us to a local farmer, who was showcasing one of his lambs for people to admire and pet. He also told us about some of the forts that were nearby, so we went to visit them and I was very impressed!
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
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)!!
Turn over a stone or two to find the stone that tickles your creative fancy!
Welcome to the 164th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
All of you hit the Road with a passion!! Your posts were delightful and filled with both creative approaches and wonderful photography and poetry and prose. It definitely was a lot of fun to read all of your posts and see some of the wonderful places around the world, where some of you live and others have visited during their travels; your posts underscored how amazing our planet is and all that it has to offer. Thank you for making this a ton of fun!
I hope that you enjoy all these posts just as much as I did!
Here’s a road that I traveled a couple of weeks ago…
The view here is from the very top of the road through the Gap of Dunloe. As you can tell from this view, the road winds quite a bit and it is a rather narrow, single-track adventure. Both true, except that you’re seeing the easy part of the road. Most of the road winds between rocks on either side of the road, is slightly narrower and also has horse-drawn carriages that you get to meet at the most inconvenient moments. Traversing this challenge scared my wife more than a bit (she made me promise to go back via a different route) and there were various interesting moments, such as trying back into a small spot to let a carriage through and having about an inch of clearance…
Sarah starts things this week in her post in By Sarah with a great set of roads on the South Island in New Zealand; great shots!
With another great photo in her blog Une Photo, Un Poéme, Nicole takes us on the road to the countryside in Normandy.
Kammie finds us some interesting roads in Nut House Central, including one that is being traveled on four wheels…
A truly unusual feature lies at the end of the road featured in the blog MVobsession: a gingerbread house…
With another really interesting post in Quaint Revival, Shelley takes us down a road of organization, self-improvement and generally interesting reads that make up part of her library.
Jackie takes us on a rather fanciful trip across the road in her post in Junk Boat Travels: those are some nice steps being executed!
The road that is featured in this week’s entry in Chateaux des Fleurs makes me want to follow it into the far distance!
This week’s post on the theme in the Liggett Adventures takes us to Cornwall on the way to St. Michael’s Castle; fantastic location!
In another interesting entry in pensivity101, we’re not on the usual water road, although the road is more than a bit wet!
Ann-Christine presents us with a beautiful landscape in her post in To See a World in a Grain of Sand… and a road that leads to orchid marshes… Those would be great to see!
As always the photo in the post from theonlyD800inthehameau is stunning! That road does invite exploration to see where it might lead…
Ken always provides us with interesting scenes in his posts in Pictures without Film; the night in Amiens provides us with a real sense of ambience!
With a lovely post in Sharing Thoughts, Indira takes us on some very cool roads in India!
Anjum’s post in the blog The Unsaid Words of Untold Stories takes a great approach to this week’s theme and provides interesting views of roads and their utilization in Pakistan.
Deb has a photo of a road in her post in Twenty-Four that just makes me want to go out there and drive with the top down!
In a great post in iball round the world, we get to see a city that I will visit next month: Prague and the very famous Charles Bridge! It was the road between Eastern and Western Europe for centuries.
