Maria Antonia’s 2021 Photo Challenge includes a category of Sunlight/Moonlight. This photo I think captures that transition period of sunlight’s retreat before yielding way to moonlight. It was taken on a cruise near the Canary Islands.
Maria Antonia’s 2020 Photo Challenge includes a prompt on the theme of “majestic.” There are few places more majestic that the Sun King’s Palace of Versailles. Seeing that majesty is expected here I am presenting two photos rather than the humble “One.”

Maria’s Antonia’s #2020picoftheweek challenge includes a prompt for “up in the sky.” This photo taken at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford gets visitors to look up as they enter. It’s fitting for the theme to have something unusual “up in the sky.”
Maria Antonia’s photo challenge includes a prompt for “transportation.” My late wife was, and I am, great lovers of waterways. We spent many a holiday just enjoying the experience of watching the world go slowly by, whether one the great ship canals such as the Kiel, or the ringed waterways of Amsterdam, or the gentle passage through Norfolk’s Broads. The photo above is of one of her favourite passages in Venice.
Not every roadway is made of soil,
Not every element is earth,
Transit need not give legs toil,
But ride easy once you’ve slipped from your berth.
OFMARIAANTONIA‘s 2020 photo challenge includes a prompt for “Point of View.” The viewpoint I have gone with is the view of the surrounding peaks as seen from my cousin’s home in the Welsh mountains. The viewpoint shows the progression from the tree line, to the moor-like uplands, and then to the snowline.
Timber to grass, grass to snow
It all changes quickly as up you go
I sit and observe it, dry and warm
Unconcerned by the passing storm
Such is my point of view
As I read a book, and sip a brew
With much appreciation to Tess and Hugh for their hospitality.
