Misty Morning

Early morning mist on the river Vienne at Chabanais (which thoughtfully also provided the inspiration for an earlier post in this weekly challenge)

The Bridge

As the early morning mist starts to lift from the Vienne river at Chabanais, the bridge in the distance beyond the weir becomes visible.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

Perfect reflections of the Pont Vieux on the River Vienne as it flows through the town of Confolens.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match

“A harmonious, pleasing combination” – the old stonework of the Pont Vieux that crosses  the Vienne river as it flows through the town of Confolens on a calm, sunny day.

And what  could be a better match than a reflection – especially when even the tall trees in the background echo the reflection in the water of the lamp post in the middle of the bridge?

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 4 – Reflections

Very happy to see that reflections is the new topic for the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge. That’s much more like it – one of my favourite subjects, in fact.

This is an image of the River Vienne as it runs through Confolens. The water is calm at this point, just upstream from the weir

Rule of Thirds (2)

To be honest, finding  ‘ready-made’ images that occupy two-thirds of the picture was a bit of a challenge. That probably just goes to show that I am (or was) too wedded to sticking the subject in the middle of the photograph as a matter of course. Still, a bit of creative cropping did the job.

This week, I have three pairs of similar images illustrating the 2/3rds theme (hover over the image and caption for a fuller description).

To begin with, a couple of archways:

And here are two water-based scenes:

And finally (appropriately) two sunsets:
