A Selection of Vegetation ‘Trios’ from Fife

As my penultimate post following the theme of ‘Trios’ from Fife (as part of the Weekly Photographic Challenge – Trio), I am posting two photos. The first is of a ‘trio’ of pine cones, the second is of a ‘trio’ of ferns. Advertisements

Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge – Vertical Lines

In response to “Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge – Vertical Lines“, I’ve enclosed seven photos taken yesterday fairly close to home. The first two photos show an old wooden fence at the end of a garden, the third photo another fence adjacent to some garden steps. The fourth and fifth photos caught my eye because […]
