Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!


The prompt for this month’s photo challenge from Wild Daffodil was Sunlight.

May turned out to be a very sunny month, so I thoroughly enjoyed being out and about capturing the essence of sunlight.

Sunlight in York Museum Gardens. This was taken in early May when the leaves were new and soft, and the shadows long  in the early afternnon.

Sunlight twinkling on the sea at Scarborough, on a day when there were more clouds than sunshine.

A field of sunlight- Pickering.

I pointed my camera directly at the sun to capture sunlight through copper beech trees.

Dappled sunlight reflected in the beck through the woods near the railway line. So many colours in sunlight.

Sunlight and steam train, I can’t resist the trains, in case you didn’t guess.

So which do you like best? My favourite is the buttercup field.

Today is the sun is shining again, time to begin the hunt for next month’s prompt which is Sculpture.

  8. Buttercup field for me too. There are so many of them out at the moment. Heading Yorkshire this wknd. Camping at Bolton Abbey. Xx

  9. Well, aren’t you the arty farty one with your camera?
    That second to last photo reminds me of a Monet painting.

  10. My favourite just has to be the buttercup field. The photo gives me the sense of wanting to be there, just sitting in the grass and gazing at that view 🙂
