Today you have a double whammy of photo challenges as not only is it Friday, it’s also the beginning of June so it time for the monthly photo challenge from Wild Daffodil as well as the Friday Photo Challenge from Postcard from Gibraltar!
This is one of my favourite photos from our recent holiday, the morning after the wedding Helen and I got up early and sat on the beach to watch the sunrise. It was beautiful, I love the way the sunlight just captures the spray of the wave.
Helen and Rosie sitting in the spring sunshine.
This was the quilt I gave as a wedding present in Australia, I called it ‘Feel the Sunshine’ after one of my favourite quotes, ‘To love and be loved is to feel the sunshine on both sides’ I nearly called the quilt Walking on Sunshine but I hesitated as it was played at a funeral I once went to, but the couple clearly love the song as they walked back down the aisle to the song.
My favorite tree in the garden, a magnolia stellata. It looks beautiful when the sunlight shines through the delicate petals.
Sunlight in the conservatory making Zachs coat shine, one day I would love to turn this photo into an embroidery…one day!
I love taking photos of sunlight through trees or foliage, so often you here people say you shouldn’t take photos pointing towards the sun, but some of my best photos are taken this way!
We’re hoping for a bit more sunshine at the weekend as it’s Askwith Show, a proper village show with cows, sheep, chickens, fancy dress pony competitions, dog that looks most like it’s owner (Helen won that one year!), Punch and Judy, three legged races…and excellent refreshments in the village hall, I must go and bake some more cakes!
