Weekly photo challenge: Habit


I do have a habit of returning to locations to check out the view and take the same photograph. I couldn’t forget the vivid scarlet of this tree along Clay Head Road. I took this photograph today but when I walked here a couple of weeks ago, the leaves were quite dull and lifeless.

    Great shot. Beautiful colour of that tree. It’s lovely to see the texture of the moss on the roof and the detail of that dry stone fence too.

    I must say I really DO like this wordpress template with the photo filling the full screen. Makes every image detail so much more ‘alive’. I wish all photographers would post large images. Some are so small you can’t see any detail, even when you click on the photo, and if they’re a regular blogging ‘friend’, it’s hard to make a positive comment on the tiny image.

      Thanks Vicki. I like the moss on the roof too. I’m still getting used to this blog format and I’m still not sure I like it but I do agree with you about the image size.

      Thanks. It’s Clay Head Road in Baldrine. I walk here quite a bit as it has lovely wild flowers on the hedges and views over Laxey. I know which road you mean though and it does look similar.

    Lovely image habit, great contrasts, clarity and the road winding through gives the essence of continuation on a journey. Funny comment about the previous week’s green leaves being ‘dull and lifeless’ and the red ones so much more vivid (lively?) … in their death process, ironic…. Made me think about perceptions and seeing things we like the looks of but that are actually the end of function (luckily deciduous trees are supposed to cycle).

      Thank you
      I agree. One of my favourite photographers is John Blakemore who captured the stunning beauty of flowers and plants that would normally be well past their sell by date.
