Serenity Beach

I was asked how do you embody Serenity in a photograph, we’ll this one was is easy for me, the beach at Filey on a cold winters day is a place of utmost tranquility, peacefulness and serenity, especially when it’s secluded, apart from the odd dog walker, which is exactly what I was doing on the day I took these photos while my nine year old Jack Russell ran around with the boundless joy of a puppy…I guess she was having a serenity moment as well.

The real beauty for me of this serene beach in the harshness of winter, it allows you to switch off completely from the outside world, and soak up the beach and become one with the sounds, smells and scenery stretched out in front of you… My pure heaven.

Shadow of the Dog

Happy is back!

Last time my little angel of a dog was on this blog was for The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for the word Happy, in which you had to post something which made you happy, so I did a blog about my lovely dog, although I did have to apologise to my Wifey and Girls for not doing it about them, the post even got Freshly Pressed by WordPress, so she got quite a bit of exposure.

Still today she makes me so Happy, as you can see from this ‘light and shade’ photo she posed for a few days ago whilst looking into the sunny garden waiting to see the squirrels.

I think you’ll agree its a perfect submission the WordPress Photo Challenge for the word Shadowed.

Christmas Warmth

“let’s keep things nice and cozy”

Nice subtitle from Wordpress for this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge for the word Warmth, so I took it literally, and what better way of showing something cosy than with the family festive Christmas Tree in the Milner household, all glowing by candlelight on a cold winters night.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

eaOne of the very first WordPress Photo Challenge I ever participated in was Big” so it seems quite fitting I start doing the Photo Challenges again after nearly a 4 month break with the theme GRAND”. The photo’s I’m submitting is of the Leeds Skyline on a very cold night.

I’d managed to sweet talk the security team looking after the City Island residential scheme, on the edge of the city to let me use one their apartments for some night photography. Amazingly he gave me the keys to the empty Penthouse suite ‘Room 102’ on the 19th floor, not ideal for those afraid of heights like me, but I was prepared to overcome this fear in the faint hope of getting some nice shots of the city at night.

This long panorama included the Crescent Moon on the far right with a lovely glint of Earth Shine.

Had to include a B/W shot, as it makes the city lights look so sharp.

I’ve made ALL the images a Gallery Link, so you can see the detail better.

Hope you like them 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree

One of my favourite captures recently perfectly says it all for this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge…This lovely senior lady looks so ‘Young at Heart’ and Carefree enjoying her Ryeburn of Helmsley’s champion diary ice cream outside the York Museum.

The thing I love most is how she’s rocking those trendy Nike trainers as well…go girl 🙂
