Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #231 – Favourite Images of 2022

John asks us to choose our Favourite Images of 2022. Some I have divided them into a couple of categories. Firstly (and probably not surprisingly) pollinators.

And then some wildflowers……………………

And finally some places.

Many thanks to John for getting us off to a good start for this year’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #230 – Last Chance 2022

So it is nearly Christmas and the last chance to show some of our 2022 images in LAPC. There are so many – but I thought I would keep to a wintery theme. I hope my American followers are not getting it too cold just now.

Frosted hogweed
Blackbird – keen to hang out close to bird feeder

And finally I would like to wish you all a very Happy and Safe Festive Season. Thank you for continuing to follow. It really is a joy to have you along.


Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #226 – Textures

LAPC guest host this week is Jude at Cornwall in Colours – and she challenges us to find some textures.

last weekend, we enjoyed a lovely walk in the woods. I love all the different tree trunks.

Looking up into the canopy, the last few oak leaves clinging on to the moss and lichen covered branches.

And back down to the lake shore, where in the sheltered bay, the water was almost like glass.


And just for Jude, this was one of the last fuzzy bees I took a photograph of back in late September. Missing them and looking forward to seeing them back in the spring.


Special thanks to Jude for hosting this week’s challenge.
