August close-up or macro CMMC challenge

Cee Neuner’s challenge this week for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) is for a close-up or Macro.

I was walking along the beach, when the texture of a rock caught my eye. The local rock is red sandstone, but there are other rocks, which are said to have arrived due to glacial action in the last ice-age. I am posting two pictures this time taken from close to and very close to the rock.

July CMMC Alphabet Letter K at the end of the word

Cee Neuner’s challenge for the CMMC (Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge) is for a word with K at the end.

I went for a walk today, when the forecast was mainly rainy, looking for appropriate things for this challenge. There were more than I expected. The photo I chose is of a beck, with the predominant plant on the bank being dock, which has gone to seed with red spikes. There are at least three words ending in K in the same photo!

This area has appeared in a previous challenge, when the topic was fence. Today’s photo was taken from the bridge in the earlier post.
