My Sony phone has a backlight option on its camera, which allows photos taken pointing towards the sun to be more than a blur. the photo I have chosen for this week was taken from a crouching position, looking towards the in-coming tide and the low autumn sunshine. The textures of the sand on the beach and the reflections in the pool of water add to the experimental nature of this composition.
Recently I have become fascinated by the effects of light and weather on the view of the beck near home. I took a snap to record the level of the water following some heavy rain. Then I took one at a different angle to see how they compared. It was spitting with rain at the time.
On a sunny morning I took a photo, which was clearer.
Then on a sunny afternoon there was the glare of the sun’s reflection. I took two more photos.
The bridge makes a window to the beck. The Daily Post’s photo challenge is Window.

This week the photo challenge from the Daily Post is Heritage.
There has been an increase in the popularity of street art in recent years. Not the art of pavement artists, whose work in chalk is washed away by heavy rain, but more permanent art on the walls of buildings.
I have made a few attempts at snapping a scene from Gulliver’s Travels. Shadows cast by neighbouring buildings usually prevent the painting from being seen at its best. However my photo taken in March this year is more evenly lit. The connection between the book and the site of this illustration is that the author, Jonathan Swift, lived in Whitehaven as a young child.
