52 Week Challenge – Week 20

Sadly there are no images from Week 19. My life was just too busy that week. To make up for it here are a few extra images from an outing I had this previous week. All photos were taken from one spot and all within 45 minutes as the sun was setting.

52 Week Challenge – Week 2

The weather has been dull and grey this week but I found a window of decent light and returned to the beach just 5 minutes from home.

My 52 Week Challenge

I haven’t been shooting enough, period. Yes, I take plenty of photos on my vacations and at cycling events, but there are periods of time where I’ve shot nothing. Lately I’ve read some blogs notably by Patrick La Roque, Olaf Sztaba, Thomasz Trzebiatowski (Fujilove) and Ian MacDonald and they have collectively inspired me to get out and shoot every week. I thought about a 365 day challenge but decided on “baby steps”. I live in a beautiful city with visual opportunities at every turn, and as Patrick La Roque and many others have proven, one can find inspiration very close to home. So, here goes:

Week 1 – A Pile of Rocks

I found this little stream amongst a jumble of rocks  The driftwood logs tossed on the rocks during a winter storm frame the stream as it makes it’s way to the sea.  See image below:
