Not quite constituting a wood in itself, this line of trees divides the two fields that lie behind our house. On a clear, bright sunny morning after a very cold clear night earlier this year, the frost on the bare branches was too good to miss.

This week’s Tuesday Challenge at Dutch Goes The Photo is to post an image of something yellow.
I don’t know what these flowers are called, but they are most definitely yellow.

For Frank’s theme of ‘Music’ this week, here is a detail of the mightily impressive pipe-organ in the main church of the French city of Thiers:
…and for perspective, here’s the whole thing:

Freezing fog gives a ghostly appearance to this view of the little road that runs from our hamlet up towards La Motte.
(To enhance the mood, the original colour image has had a Blue high-contrast filter applied in Lightroom.)

If I want to see something old, I just need to look in the mirror. Fear not though, I’ll spare you (and me) a self-portrait in response to this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge theme, set by Frank at Dutch Goes The Photo!
Instead – and infinitely more interesting – here is an image of a Roman-era funerary statue recovered from archaeological excavations at Argentomagus, in central France. Is it just me, or does he look like he’s wearing a beanie hat?

This week, Frank of Dutch Goes The Photo! has gone off on his holidays so, appropriately, has selected the theme of ‘travel’ for his latest Tuesday Challenge.
It’s a very broad theme, of course; as Frank says, travel could be anything as mundane as a daily commute. However, I’ve selected a rather more exotic image that tries to convey ‘travel’ as the state of being somewhere very different from what you’re used to.
I’ve been very fortunate to have been able to travel quite extensively, for both business and pleasure. The first doesn’t count so much perhaps, but for somewhere very different – in terms of both place and time – one of my all-time favourite places has to be Petra. It’s one of the most photographed locations on the planet, but at least this isn’t a photograph of the iconic Nabatean Treasury (although there are a few photographs of that particular edifice elsewhere on this blog if you care to look).
