Weekly photo challenge: Sea

This week’s photo challenge is Sea. The sea is so many things to me.

It’s a great healer.

It’s beautiful.IMG_6774 IMG_6773

It’s wild.

It’s a source of life.

But the sea is also cruel and devastating. The wreck of the scallop dredger, the Solway Harvester now moored in Douglas Harbour is a sad reminder of the seven Scottish fisherman who lost their lives at sea in January 2000.

It’s a permanent mirror to the sky.

It’s versatile and can be fun.

I just know, close to the sea, that’s where I’ll be!

Weekly photo challenge: Carefree

I took these photographs at Curragh’s Wildlife Park last Sunday. The first couple of animals definitely display some carefree behaviour. Batman didn’t even bat an eyelid when I was photographing him! Or is it Batwoman?

The last two would need to chill out before I could include them in this week’s theme!

Weekly photo challenge: Masterpiece

The theme of this week’s challenge made me think of one of the funny things my daughter said when she was little. We visited the Tate Art Gallery in Liverpool when she was about 5. One very precious famous painting was surrounded by a roped barrier to stop visitors getting too close. “Is that one still wet?” was my daughter’s question.
