Summer in the UK, so far, has been extremely wet!   However, pictures of floods are not very cheerful, but……….



…………. there is nothing quite so cheerful as a sunflower!



………..Or an Allium……



…………..or an English rose!

<a href=”http://writteninc.blogspot.com/search/label/Thematic%20Photographic”> Carmi’s Challenge this week is ABSTRACTS</a>

If you go to the link you will see Carmi’s great photo, plus others who have taken up the challenge.


I find that getting in close to things can produce some wonderful abstract patterns.


This is not some dreadful disease, but weathering on an old upturned boat.


Taking things in Black and White can give an abstract air.   This is a close up of some very interesting fungus on a tree trunk.


Reflections make wonderful patterns, which change as wind blows the ripples.

Carmi has challenged us this week to show our blue photos. If you go to the link, you will see very many different interpretations. The true blue of this primula caught my eye last Spring - it is really intense. Grape Hyacinths (Muscari) always supply me with a lovely blue edge to my patio in the spring. A lovely bright blue cushion cover. And of course, I couldn't resist yet another photo of the wonderful Svalbard mountains!

Carmi's Theme this week is THE NATURAL WORLD. If you follow that link you will see some fantastic photos taken by Carmi and others who have accepted his Photographic challenge. I can't compete with the wilderness wonders posted so have concentrated on the smaller wonders Having said all that, these Arctic Mountains are definitely a wilderness place! Taken from our cruise ship of the Svalbard coast, 78 degrees North. I love water, and this waterfall was spectacular. Taken from the Geiranger Fjord, Norway. Icy water, I love the light effects. Another water shapes. Caused by a diving coot. He's still under there somewhere! And lastly, a peaceful ripple of water on a Welsh shore in Anglesey.
