I’ve chosen the ‘golden hour’ as the sun sets for my golden photo challenge entry this week. I love how the colour just fills our home for those glorious few moments as it drops down behind the hills across the Bay from us.
However, at the moment, this is my favourite type of golden…
…just the ticket after a long hot day!
Next week’s Friday Photo Challenge will be ‘Favourite’.
We kicked off June with sunshine and Crafty creek had some stunning shots in her Sunshine post, I just love the sunrise photo over the sea. So beautiful! You can see it here . Sunshine and trees featured this week on Instagram @mrsscjohnson4 shared a beautiful sunset photo with a line of trees silhouetted in the foreground, while @randallpeck captured the sun’s rays through the branches of a tree.
Line (week 23)
Sandra at Wild Daffodil shared her post about a beautiful lino print she’d made for this challenge. Meanwhile on Instagram, Randall Peck shared the most beautiful photograph of a solitary bird sitting on a power line against an orange sky. Thinking outside the box, Sandra @capanosandra opted for the plimsoll line on a large tanker moored in Gibraltar’s port.
Tiny (week 24)
The most adorable tiny floral arrangement in a little tea cup was Sandra at Wild Daffodil’s entry for Tiny. Tammy (@tsdailytreasures) captured a little bug on a blade of grass, and insects also featured in the pictures by @randallpeck and @capanosandra too. Randall caught the moment as one bird flew to another to share an insect for dinner and Sandra opted for the bane of my life in the summer months… ants!
Midsummer (week 25)
‘Phonhenge’ was the title of @randallpeck’s summer solstice Instagram photograph which made me chuckle. He managed to catch a picture of the sun just peeping out around the side of his mobile phone. Jan @isisjem opted for a beautiful shot of a path across a green field which was taken on her summer solstice countryside walk. For @hookstitchsew, marigolds mean midsummer to her.
Tall (week 26)
Over on Instagram @mrsscjohnson4 shared a photo of the control tower at Mallory Park race track for her ‘tall’ image, Sandra (@capanosandra) chose to share a photo of The Four Columns (Les Quatre Columnes in Catalan) which she photographed on her recent trip to Barcelona. While Susan @bluejake235 chose Blackpool Tower as the subject of her ‘tall’ photo, @hookstitchsew featured her very tall pea plants as the stars of her tall entry. Perhaps the tallest thing of all to feature was Alison (@alisoninandalucia)’s picture of the Burj Khalifa.
Thank you to everyone who has joined in with the Postcard from Gibraltar Friday Photo Challenge so far this year, it’s amazing to think that we are already more than halfway through already! Here’s to lots more lovely photographs over the next 6 months!
