Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 108

Ever higher and higher!

Welcome to the 108th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  It’s been great to be home this week and get back into a regular rhythm of life.

Your posts were fantastic as always, and a joy to read.  Your interpretation of the theme Rise was sometimes filled with hot air and sometimes required a climb, but always uplifting and creative!

Thank you for your great contributions!

Here’s another rise to a higher level…

This image came from a photoshoot at a somewhat dilapidated mansion in New Jersey; this bathroom inspired me to generate something bold, breaking out of the space, as if rising toward another dimension.

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

  • Sarah is high up in the air this week in By Sarah, as she is flying over Melbourne with the sun rising.
  • With another great photo in theonlyD800inthehameau, I was reminded of the Irish well-wishing “May the road rise up to meet you!”.
  • Gwenny’s post in Field Notes from over the Hill has a great rise that asks to be climbed during a wonderful hike.
  • Xenia’s post in whippetwisdom shows the benefits of rising early with wonderful whippets.  Xenia’s second post is in her blog Tranature as she rises in the highlands toward the snow.  Both feature great haikus in addition to the photos!

  • In another excellent post in Don’t Hold Your Breath, we encounter a set of abandoned structures, around which the trees have risen over the years.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rise

All rise to the top!

Welcome to Week 108 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  Slowly, things are getting back on track!

After last week’s theme of Trip, I thought of what we tend to do after we trip: we get up and Rise to the next occasion!  Even after a long trip, we need a bit of time to collect ourselves and take on all the challenges that we face with regularity.  So, I look forward to seeing each of you Rise to the challenge with lots of fun, creative posts that take on the theme in whichever way tickles your fancy!

Of course, poetic license is all yours, so let the cream Rise to the top!

Here’s a view of a challenge to which I decided to rise…

Monadnock Staircase

This section of the ascent to Mount Monadnock provides an interesting challenge, as it is a break from the usual paths that have been worn across time.  It gives the feel of debris left behind by giants that strode across the land in times of mystery!

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 seeing what rises in your wonderful, creative brains!
