Friday’s Photo Challenge

I completely forgot the photo challenge last week! This week the theme is tunnel so I’ve been having a look through my photos…

…I haven’t got many photos of tunnels, probably because I don’t do dark, damp places!  so I’m bending things a bit!

I love walking through tunnels of trees, this is down the lane behind our house, taken just a couple of weeks ago. The ground is really crunchy now with all the fallen leaves.

This is the entrance to St Cuthberts Cave in Northumberland, which we visited whilst walking St Cuthberts Way in September…DSC_0388

Inside it looks slightly more tunnel like! There’s some very old graffiti carved into the stone, one date I saw was about 1786!DSC_0398

This is actually a collapsed tunnel from a cave system, we found it during a walk a couple of years ago, it had quite a special feeling to it, I seem to remember it was called a church or chapel and I could see why.


OK so this is under a bridge rather than a tunnel, but it’s close and I think it’s one of my best photos! It was taken on the Leeds Liverpool canal during our first canal boat holiday. We did go through Foulridge tunnel which is a mile long, whilst waiting our turn we chatted to a gent and it turned out he was one of the last people to ‘leg it’ through the tunnel when he was young. This is what they did when the barge was towed by a carthorse. The horse was taken over the top and the canal boatmen would be strapped to a board across the boat and they would ‘walk’ sideways along the walls to push the boat through!Emma 2008099

OK so this one is maybe a bit smoochy and cheesy, me and my OH heading down the tunnel of love 🙂



The Friday Photo Challenge is organised by Postcard from Gibraltar, follow the link to see lots more tunnels.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Another set of beautiful pictures! I am curious about how you find the pictures in your photographs. You must have an awesome labeling system. I know I would have a hard time digging through my many photographs to find ones that are appropriate for these categories.

      I wish I could say my photos were well organised! In fact it’s something I need to do as they’re just on my computer by date, and my OH is blaming the hundreds of files for the slowness of my computer!! Most of the photos have been on my blog before, I usually just go down my media section and choose some to write about! Any suggestions on filing photos are welcome!


  4. Once again your succeeded on the photo challenge! Very cute at the end about the tunnel of love!
