Paula is showing us two variations on a scene, a lovely little waterfall where she’s used a slow shutter speed to create smooth water. Both images are beautiful and I couldn’t chose between them.
I’m not quite sure if this is what Paula’s looking for in her Thursday Special, but here are three shot of the obelisk at Mamhead. It’s high above the Exe estuary, but the weather was dire when I was there recently, so no nice view that day.
you can join Paula, she’d love to see you!

When I see photos like this, it makes me think that my own eyes should be able to zoom in on things in everyday life–good photos, but fools me into thinking I can do it without a camera!
I love the obelisk behind the tracery of bare branches. What do you mean no nice view???
On a clear day the view east over the estuary is lovely, glad you like the photo though thanks 🙂
That last photo is the star, Gilly. It also tells us that there are times when it’s best to home in on the detail rather than the whole. An v. interesting trio.
I know what you mean by no nice view. I can’t wait for Algarve blossom 🙂 🙂 But you have made these interesting, Gilly, and I like the splash of gold in the second. Thursday hugs, honeybun!
Last one with the sparkly bits is best! Have you had a good Thursday, Gilly?
Gosh, difficult to see this between the trees! I like the last one, it is as though you are looking at it through a cobweb 😀
these photos are artsy and leave a lot to ponder – each view has a different vibe – such a nice series
They are all intriguing photos. Good views to me
I love these photos, the second photo is my favorite. It’s challenging to take photo through bare branches.
I also like the last one best. interesting perspective
Doesn’t matter what I had in mind, you showed three different perspectives of the thing and it turned out very nice despite the weather. Thank you, Gilly for your nice words and your inspiring entry.
A very shiny thing! I really like the second shot Gilly 😃
Ohhh … the first one looks very mysterious. It could be a great book cover. I love all of these, Gilly. You find very interesting things to photograph. Well done …
