Call to action

I've been waiting for someone to give me a proverbial kick up the rear end for much too long now and good old +Andy Gray was the one has stood up to the challenge and pushed me into action.  I've been missing from Google+ for several months as life has just got in the way, and I suppose I have been happy to let it but I have been missing some good friends here on G+ and so this push to action from Andy with the #fivedayquest  is just the kick I need - thanks Andy.

I thought I would start the quest with a shot of where I've been, namely looking instead of shooting, but hey you have to start somewhere!

Any ideas what these are?
I've got the toast ready, now before I cook them does anyone know what these wild mushrooms are called, and more importantly, are they safe to eat?  I might just have to spread jam on the toast instead....we'll see!

The road less travelled

This miniature railway line weaves its way through the trees alongside the popular Rudyard lake in Staffordshire - certainly one of my favourite places for a visit!

Sometimes even the smallest and almost insignificant route is the one you should follow.

Just felt like a little bit of colour today, so why not red, hey who knows, it might just brighten up any MUFC fans who are still feeling a little down today.

#fivedayquest - day 5

Who lives in a house like that?  Walking, again, this time out for the day in a local park with my wife and a good friend making hay whilst the sun shines, which, if the weather forecast can be believed wont last for too long.  Not a particularly strong image but a nice memory of today's stroll.

#FiveDayQuest - Day 4

Raindrops

Sheltering in a garden centre from the rain today and so I thought it quite appropriate to capture something that would remind me of where I was and also what the weather was like at the time!

The #fivedayquest  aims to get you to shoot something simple everyday from your life for the next 5 days and tag someone who will hopefully join in the fun.  Today I would like to tag my food buddy +The Tuck Shop but I better be prepared to see a lot of food appearing in my stream if he takes up the challenge!

FiveDayQuest - Day 3

I was out for my daily walk this morning through the local woods and it sure was a nice walk, I even met an old friend who I haven't seen in getting on 10 years - Yay!  I try and walk 4 or 5 miles each day dependent on the weather as I find it quite relaxing with plenty of time to mull things over.  The weather isn't very pleasant today but luckily I just managed to get home before the clouds burst open and drenched me.   #thinkpositive  

I would like to tag +Kev Isabeth today and challenge him to join the fun, come on Kev, show us what you've got (not literally mind you!).

Yes I know +Andy Gray it could actually be classed as Day 2, but hey who's counting, certainly not me!

#Fivedayquest - Day 2

Rather strange day today as I was asked to take some indoor images for my daughter who is selling her home, now this is not on my usual agenda but it is in line with the theme of the #fivedayquest which  is to post an image for 5 days featuring something from our regular lives.  

+Andy Gray  tagged me in to this quest and today I'd like to invite +Mark HELM  because I haven't spoken to him via a hangout in a longwhile but do like to follow his stream here on G+.  Hope that is OK with Mark!

Newspapers without images? 

So glad to see support for photographers by at least one newspaper, there are too many trying to drive down the value of the photographer in pursuit of profits.

Wensleydale

One of my favourite locations in Wensleydale, part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is this small waterfall in the little village of West Burton which always evokes a feeling of tranquillity.  My wife and I just got back from our first real visit to the Dales in a couple of years but for one reason or another we didn't get the opportunity to visit the falls so this image taken a couple of years ago will have to serve as my reminder of the peace we find there.

Swaledale

Yes I know its a bit of an iconic image, but when in Rome, or in this case Swaledale in Yorkshire, you just have to take a shot of the fields and dry stone walls around Gunnerside, they are just so typically Yorkshire.

Known as "Lady Hill", the small bunch of trees stand alone atop a small hill not too far from Carperby in North Yorkshire.  Had a great week away from day to day life and now its time for processing a few images.

Last rays over Lady Hill

Known as "Lady Hill", the small bunch of trees stand alone atop a small hill not too far from Carperby in North Yorkshire.  Had a great week away from day to day life and now its time for processing a few images.

Autumn arrives

It was definitely chilly in Marbury Country Park over the weekend, and the sun hardly showed itself all day but at least I managed to stay reasonably dry!

Gosh, you've just got to love a doctors waiting room haven't you - NOT!  Just passing time waiting for my turn this morning so I thought a little #phoneography  was in order!

Crossing the generation gap

How many people do we meet in life and never think to speak to them, not even simply to say "Good Morning"?  What a solitary life we can choose to follow. 

I've set out on a personal quest to speak to at least one stranger each day, just to say "Hello" or "Good Morning", its going to be interesting to see the reactions I get from different people, hopefully positive ones!

Passing the time of day

I met this chap in the market as he was sat on a bench alone just rolling his ciggy, a short chat later and he had told me some of his life story.  It was a pleasure to meet him and pass the time of day with him, it would have been so easy to just walk on by and ignore him as so many others had.

Sunny side of the street

Life can be as fast paced as you make it, or indeed as slow as you want.  Inspired by +Victor Bezrukov and his street photography I at on the sea front at Conwy watching life stroll by and I think I fell in the last category - at least for a while.

Suspended animation

I didn't see many bees last year and in fact they seem to be struggling to survive in some areas. Luckily they seem to be thriving in our garden this year which is mainly down to the abundance of flowers my wife has planted to attract them.

(Re)moving heaven and earth

Following a chat to my friend +Victor Bezrukov in a hangout yesterday I was inspired to revisit a project of mine which has lay dormant for a few months now.  The project lies in the realm of pushing reality through the use of blur and intentional camera movement to create a scene from a scene - a scene that lies unnoticed at first glance. Unnoticed until you visualize it in your head.

The road less travelled

This miniature railway line weaves its way through the trees alongside the popular Rudyard lake in Staffordshire - certainly one of my favourite places for a visit!

Sometimes even the smallest and almost insignificant route is the one you should follow.

Here I lay me down to sleep

The last rays of sunlight strike the rocks on the Roaches overlooking Tittesworth reservoir.  Most of the climbers had long gone and I had the place almost to myself, such a lovely time of day to be out shooting.

I'm going to climb every mountain

Well that's not entirely true, I don't fancy rock climbing at all but I might just walk up one or two!  This image is of a series or rock outcrops which form part of The Roaches.  The Roaches lie just north of Ashbourne in Derbyshire on the road to Buxton.  You can climb them along with the thousands of other keen rock climbers who come here most weekends, or, like me you can talk the longer but much easier route - your choice!

Softly does it!

Taking images of flowers growing in their natural habitat has its benefits - I don't think my wife would have liked to have the ant in the house, but outside it seems quite settled nestling in the protective shade of the petals and adds a natural twist to the shot.  Set against a pure white background the petals show their delicate quality.

The rain had all but destroyed the red and yellow tulips, but this dark, almost black variety held up to the recent downpours we had yesterday.  I had been meaning to shoot the image for a few days and almost missed my chance, thank goodness I hadn't!
