Recommended Posts

Avalon sunbeams through trees - the beams were caused by smoke from not too distant bushfires

I was given an old iPhone four days ago so decided to meet this challenge with a new Stockimo shot - taken a few hundred metres away from the house.

I recently moved but this was taken at a weekly farmer's market just two blocks from home, and it also was my first sale on Alamy.

Image taken in local wildlife park in the village where I live. There are so many photos in my collection from this park it was difficult to choose just one.

I always hate it when you enter these competitions, Sheila, because as soon as I see your name I know I wasted my time entering :(

Exactly 5 km from my home (according to Google maps).  Lucky to have it so nearby.

 

 

 

Wow! Beautiful! You are very lucky. 

 

 

Thanks!  It's helpful to have so many mountains in this city, great views!  (not so good in Winter though ; )

Lovely shot Russell. Envy you living with a view like that. Hope they do not build on it soon. ;)

Thanks Allan. 

 

I've moved house since; a year ago today in fact. I'm a mile up the road from there, now.

I can't hope to compete with some of the exotic locations shown so far. If I see an aurora in the sky it's most likely another wheelie bin and a case of arson. So, I'll stay with my prosaic, unadorned documentary images of my home town of Bolton. Here is one to sum up the local experience of the last few years.

 This one was taken just a 5 minute walk away. It shows the village church and the long disused water tower, now a well known landmark.

Most people think that the red sky is from the sun setting, until I explain that the direction is wrong and the time was 10 minutes to twelve (midnight) !

It was in fact, from the nearby blast furnaces in Duisburg, just slightly exaggerated ;)

Seems most of my local landscape photographs are taken more like 10 km from my home than 5 so here is something from my garden.

A large oak tree in my backyard died so after we cut it down and made firewood out of it I photographed the stump.  This one did sell. Just shows that you never know what will sell.
