This little courtyard in Beaumaris, North Wales, just seemed to glow with pinkness this summer.
This bright red pedestrian bridge takes both walkers and cyclist over the Castlebar River along the Turlough-Castlebar Greenway here in Co Mayo.
Window – is this week’s weekly photo challenge. I took this photo in Caernarfon castle this summer while visiting North Wales. I just liked the way the lead rectangles framed the view outside, particularly the green grass and blue sky.
I liked the way this wheel is layered with years of rust. I wonder if green was it’s original color or if this had been another layer added by someone during its history.
Waiting – almost ready, but not quite!
This week’s photo challenge is structure.
I chose this photo for two reasons. Firstly, I like the detailed structure of the ragworth flowers, in particular the difference between those fully open and those just beginning to unfurl their petals. Secondly, I enjoy watching pollinators and the colours of this little hoverfly mean you really notice the structure of it’s abdomen.
Bees, butterflies, pretty flowers – stop me in my tracks every time. I could try a gallery of all, but decided to stick to some of our wonderful Irish butterflies.
Ireland has 32 resident and 3 common migrant butterfly species. Europe-wide many butterfly species have suffered declines in recent years (Report).
Inspired by this week’s Weekly photo challenge – Ooh shiny
This week’s photo challenge is Elemental – to somehow capture the elements of earth, air, water, and fire. I always love that place where earth and water meet. And here the addition of a sunset over the ocean adds a hint of fire. And air – well you just need to imagine it all around you.
