Lens-Artists Challenge #65 – Pick a Place

The Lens-Artists challenge this week is called Pick a Place hosted by Tina, and like Tina, I have chosen Scotland as one of the places that I could visit day in and day out.  The long winding roads, the beauty spots and the mountains captivate me and take my breath away.  I could live in … Continue reading Lens-Artists Challenge #65 – Pick a Place

Weekly Prompts – Photo Challenge Peaceful

The theme this week set by Weekly Prompts for their Photo Challenge is called Peaceful.  For my first image, I am using a photo we took whilst holidaying the beautiful surrounds of Glencoe.

As you can see from the image below, the waterfall is practically dead-centre and I wanted it more … Continue reading Content aware fill

Your Daily Word Prompt – Rainy

Scotland is renowned for its rain.  Especially in the Highlands.   On our trip to Scotland back in 2016, we strolled by the River Coe just as the rain was coming in from over the mountains.  And I thought this image would be ideal for Your Daily Word Prompt for today.

On the River at Glencoe – Compsite #3

The above photograph was taken by the River Coe at Glencoe.  The sky on that day was bland and grey.  So for this image, I added a sky overlay and played around with the blending mode and layer mask, in ON1 Raw 2018.5. Taking the image one stage further, I added, via the layers panel, … Continue reading On the River at Glencoe – Compsite #3

A Photo a Week Challenge – Water

Now, this may sound weird but I have a fear of water... but I love to see waterfalls, and rivers cascading over rocks.  The above photo was shot from a little bridge that spanned the River Coe near Glencoe Village.  Again the bridge acted as a stabiliser for my camera as I didn't have a … Continue reading A Photo a Week Challenge – Water

WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe

Whilst looking back over previous photo challenges that WordPress curates and I found one called Path. A path comes in many shapes and forms, like the image above. Which is of a wooden bridge.  A path is made by using different materials that enable a person to walk across an area with ease.  It could be concrete, decking, timber planks, … Continue reading WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe
