Tuesday Photo Challenge – Hour

Golden hour filled with warmth

Welcome to Week 77 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  A quick update, as I’m slowly getting caught up.  Last week’s round up will be posted tomorrow, at which point, I will have everything back in sync for the days that follow.

The amount of entries for last week’s theme of Signs were fantastic!  This week, I went back to Scotland from just over 4 years ago for inspiration and came across this image from a walk along the beach in Cromarty.  The time of this shot was just after 9 p.m. on May 29th; the Sun sets pretty late at that time of year, which makes for a rather lengthy ‘golden’ hour of highly saturated, rich, warm sunlight.  This inspires this week’s theme of Hour.

I’d like to challenge you to document an hour of the day in your image(s), in a way that captures some of the essence of that hour.  As always, let your creativity take free rein, so it’s perfectly fine to include some time reporting device in your image (did I hear you think sun dial?) or take the hour in the direction of your choosing.  Most of all, have fun with this!

Here’s that walk along the beach…

Walking the Beach by Cromarty

We’re looking toward the North Sea, which is on the other side of the hill ahead; across the Cromarty Firth we could see what appeared to be oil drilling platforms being constructed.

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)!!

I hope that you find the right time to capture your favorite hour!  Looking forward to seeing them!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 69

Golden tones, opportunities and faucets!

Welcome to the 69th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! This week gave you a golden opportunity to photograph something shiny and bright!

First of all, let me apologize for not doing a full set of comments in this week’s links; it’s been a rather hectic week at work, as I needed to finish up a proposal over the weekend, so I hope you can forgive me this one time.

Now, your entries have once again been wonderful, ranging from the sublime cat on the faucet (made me smile) to the great skies that you captured and that rather tasty looking beer!  I did stop by each and every one of your entries and enjoyed them!  Thank you for making me smile and giving me the chance to enjoy the golden thread that was woven through your posts!

Here’s a bit more gold, as it comes around every day…

Those of you who have been following this blog for a while, will recognize the yoga tree in her Autumn trim.  The golden sunrise, a harbinger of a great day ahead!

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

Hope that you enjoy each of these entries as much as I did!!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Golden

Follow the golden rule!

Welcome to Week 69 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.

The responses to last week’s challenge theme of Three were phenomenal, as always.  There were some truly creative entries, including one that gave me triple vision!

This week’s theme is one that is inspired by some of the images that I have been editing recently from the collection of images captured during our vacation in Scotland in 2013.  It may take me a while to get to editing images, but all good things come to those who wait (and work hard while waiting).  This week’s theme of Golden flows forth from the wondrous tones that I discovered on the island of Skye, where beautiful landscapes open up at every turn of the winding roads.

With this theme, I hope that you will find some interesting shots, including those that hint at what is golden…possibly, silence?  Let’s see where we end up!

Here’s the image that gave me the idea for this week’s theme…

This view is of the Quiraing, a landslip in Trotternish on the Isle of Skye; due to this formation’s movement, the road through the Quiraing needs annual repair.
