Photo Hunt - Light

Ingatestone Windmill


Ingatestone Hall grounds

The subject for this week's entry for Photo Hunt is light. Perhaps I am just light on inspiration but these two photos taken in August please me. On the other hand the play of light... oh anything I will say will be a tenuous link to the theme! This will be the last photo hunt of 2008, err 2007, for me. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

Beautiful shots. I love that first one - truly amazing.

Sean Jeating said...

An old Spanish friend of my friend Tetrapilotomos would very probably prefer shot one; I do like both. :)

Katney said...

No matter that you have to think about the connection to the theme--we need to think more often.

My Photo Hunt is not what you would expect, either. Stop by to see.

Gorgeous photos - love the windmill.

Happy Holidays!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Lovely shots both, and the play of colors is indeed something else. I shall steal that windmill for some nefarious purposes later, most probably ;-)

Merry Christmas and the best in New Year!

Carver said...

Those are both beautiful shots. Light is an amazing thing to capture. Merry Christmas.

Both are great shots. They are so pretty. Have a great weekend !!!

SabineM said...

Nice shots! And you meant to say LAST PHOTO HUNT OF 2007 not 2008! Come on now, I know that life just goes quicker and quicker, but 2008 would have had to go super fast if you are right! ;-)

Cynthia said...

Both lovely shots, I don't think I can pick a favorite! Happy Holidays!

Perfect! All photography depends onlight after all, but the windmill in particular is a great example.

Now, do please tell me how you have a box for url in your comment section. About half the blogger sites I've been to today have it, and the rest don't - including mine.

Randi said...

Two wonderful shots!

I'm a windmill kind of a guy. Very nice. I am also curious about the url box. Happy Holidays and enjoy the break.

shiera (bisdakbabbles) said...

these photos are great... very relaxing!

And that Ingatestone Windmill looks like the little windmill-shaped sharpener I had when I was in gradeschool! ^-^

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Tokenhippygirl said...

Love the windmill photo. So great... it looks like a painting. Merry Christmas.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I used to have to do this horrible Windmill exercise back in school where you rotate your arms until they feel like they're going to fall off.

I like your version better. :)

jams o donnell said...

Ah I remember that damn exercise! And star jumps and bloody burpees!

Heart of Rachel said...

I'm fascinated with windmills. I love the second photo. Skipping stones in the water is fun.

Happy Holidays!
