Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 98

The hills were alive!

Welcome to the 98th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  This week’s theme found many of you shaping up for some great posts all about Shape!

First of all thank you for the incredible volume of responses; I put this post together on Saturday night, before leaving for the airport to fly to Vienna over Istanbul. I will take a look for entries after this time depending how late I get in on Sunday night in Brno.

Your entries were just fantastic with lots of different hills, each with their own interesting aspect!  It’s great to see this many creative eyes looking upon our world!

Here’s another set of hills….

You might recognize these hills in Skye, as they are among my favorite places to photograph; I hope to be back there within the next couple of years!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Hills

A gentle slope

Welcome to Week 98 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  Your contributions on last week’s theme of Shape were definitely in tip-top shape and very creative!

Last week’s theme led me to the idea of continuing with a particular shape tht we get to see all over the world, except where it’s incredibly flat: Hills!  Over the hills and far away or that hill that just begs to be climbed for a wonderful view.  Hills lend interest to the landscape and present lots of visual interest all around us.

Wherever your favorite hill may be, capture it and make it look just wonderful!  And, most importantly have fun with it!

Here is one of my favorite hills….

Gentle Autumn

This hill provided just the perfect location for these wonderful trees in their Autumn livery to be framed between the green and agains the blue of the sky and gentle clouds. One of those perfect days!

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’m looking forward to finding out what shapes you come across!
