Looking at the ordinary from a different angle was the challenge for the last two weeks. This is what Joy and Louise found and below is what I came up with.
Taken at Pendower beach, squatting down by the water's edge and having the camera almost sitting on the sand as the waves roll in, yes I did manage to keep the camera dry but can't say the same for my bottom!!!

The next two are from Lydford Gorge where Mick and I went on Friday for my birthday outing. It was a beautiful day, Mick went fishing first thing in the morning and came home with 15 mackeral (not bad for two hours!) then we set off to Lydford. We hadn't been before and wondered why, we did the 3 mile circular walk that ran alongside the gorge and it was just stunning. As you can see I found myself looking up a lot of the time due to the height of the trees and everything seems so much greener that day, spring has definitely arrived :) so felt these fitted into the challenge perfectly.

Lately I have been noticing the colour of the sky against the new green growth and just love the contrast - which is what I was trying to show with this one, as well as the height.

We then came home for fresh mackeral and chips for tea - perfect end to a perfect day :)
Thank you for looking
