Curves in art and nature

It’s Tina’s turn to choose the them for the Lens Artist Photo Challenge this week. She has beauties, I love her blue window. I’ve decided to have a mix of nature and art, you can even see me making a curve.

This is my first lens artist post for a while, are you joining in this week?

Moorland views

When my friend Jude saw my ascent photos today, she asked if I had any of the views from Hound Tor. Well, I’m not very good as sweeping landscape photos, but these will give her an idea of how lovely it is up there at least.

Enjoy Jude!

Ascending Houndtor

One of my favourite of the well known spots on Dartmoor is Hound Tor. The area is surrounded with legends and history, and it’s believed to have inspired Conan Doyle’s ‘Hounds of the Baskervilles’.

I’s a steady ascent from the small parking area and the view is wonderful.

If you have the energy, once you reach the top, you can drop down the other side to the ruins of a medieval village where you’ll be surrounded by ghosts from the past.

This is my entry for the weekly photo challenge of Ascend.

Can you resist a peek?

Nosy, moi? If a gate is open surely it invites little peeks.


Especially if there’s a garden inside.

Of course some people are innately inquisitive!

And some just wonder if it’s worth climbing to the top of the hill.

If there’s a cafe opportunity, I like a peek before I decide.

It’s imperative to know what’s beneath the castle wall.

and even little ducks have to take a peek before they go under the bridge.

Have you joined this weeks photo challenge yet? In case you haven’t guessed, the theme is peek!

Windows on the Boat Float

Dartmouth has an inner harbour, known locally as the Boat Float. It’s a listed building, dating from around 1600, as enclosed moorings. There are many windows, each interesting in their own way, that offer stunning views over the Boat Float and the river Dart.

Michelle at the Daily Post shares a photo of a harbour through a window in Brindisi, have a look and maybe share one of your own.
