Layers on land, sea and sky

The photo I have chosen for this challenge from the Daily Post about layers of texture is a very recent one. There were many different sorts of clouds that day. Clouds are three-dimensional consisting of droplets of moisture in irregular layers.

The tide was out, so that layers could be seen: deep water, shallow water, wet sand, shingle, concrete.

In the distance there is a hill, which has more layers.


Countless corners

I cropped this photo to remove a car (automobile), which had found its way into the corner of the photo. There are still plenty of corners left. I don’t intend to count them myself, but I have spotted the following things with corners: buildings, doors and doorsteps, windows and window frames, roofs, slates, railings, sandstone blocks, kerbstones, chimney stacks and the corner where the wall meets the road. There are also the angles of the telephone wires around the pole. It is a good thing that the local volunteer gardeners have softened the view with their hanging baskets!

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is Corner.


No fire!

I remember one of the early photos I took as a child was of a waterfall. I had a Brownie box camera, which had been passed down to me from older members of the family. Dad took the same waterfall with a more recent camera and from a different angle. After all he was an experienced amateur photographer. No prizes for guessing whose photo was better!
For the photo challenge elemental, I am submitting two photos taken in Hawes, where we stopped briefly on a journey to the Yorkshire Dales. I still cannot resist snapping a waterfall. Standing on the pavement, I could not fit in the entire width of the river, so here are two photos taken with my phone (as usual). Research on Wikipedia leads me to believe that this is a tributary of the River Ure named Gayle Beck.

The photo challenge from the Daily Post is elemental – air, earth, fire and water. My photos include air entrained in water flowing over rocks, but no fire!
