Life in Colour Photo Challenge: Black

Taking part in the Life in Colour Challenge (https://traveltalk.me.uk/2020/12/31/life-in-colour-photo-challenge-2021/) This month we will be looking for Black or Grey. Black is not a colour at all. Theoretically it is the absence of all colour. Yet black is distinctive. Lines are bolder, shadows deeper, colours brighter against a black background. I see a red door And I want it painted […]

Life in Colour Photo Challenge: Orange

Taking part in the Life in Colour Challenge (https://traveltalk.me.uk/2020/12/31/life-in-colour-photo-challenge-2021/) This month we will be looking for orange. One of the most vibrant colours, orange is zingy and fresh. It’s a warm colour, friendly and inviting. Soft at dawn, but louder at sunset. From the palest of peaches and apricots through to copper, rust, salmon-pink and terracotta, […]

Life in Colour Photo Challenge: Red

Taking part in the Life in Colour Challenge (https://traveltalk.me.uk/2020/12/31/life-in-colour-photo-challenge-2021/) This month we will be looking for red. One of the primary colours, red often indicates danger. It is pure energy, loud, demanding to be seen. Think of a red ladybird, a red rose, autumn leaves and a sunset. Passion. A heart.

MonoChrome Monday : St Andrew’s, Scotland

The eagle-eyed viewer might recognise this beach as it played a prominent part in the opening sequence of the movie Chariots of Fire. Vangelis’s Anthem of the same name booms while all the actors including Ben Cross and Nigel Havers run across the sand and incoming tide. Powerful stuff. Here is another shot from the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wheel

A masterpiece of engineering. On the left is a wheel of cinnamon and apple turnovers that we enjoyed at the Hopewell Lodge in […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

This week’s Photo Challenge is Dreamy. Based on this I thought of somewhere we had been on this trip that felt like we were in a dream. Everywhere has been a wee bit surreal but the closest place to a dreamscape is the Huangshan Mountains in Southern China. (These were the mountains as shown in […]
