Daily Post Photo Challenge – New Horizons


Hope and Peace

This weeks Daily Post photo challenge topic is defined as New Horizons….and of course linking that thought with the coming New Year.

For me it just has to represent Hope for Peace.  Not just Peace in all those areas of bloody conflict but also those areas nearer to home where so many people are fighting just to ‘get by’.

And would it not be too much to ask that our Politicians seek to exercise Peace….Peace not just with those in Opposition to their Parties belief’s but to each other, their own colleagues, who supposedly share the same ambitions…ambitions which should be to achieve a more just and peaceful world for all of us, who ever and where ever we are.

Just my thought for that New Horizon…see what others have suggested on:-

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Made by Human Beings


Borrowdale Valley, Cumbria

The valley has been shaped by nature since time began and even today the weather continues to shape Borrowdale.

But the boardwalk is most certainly man made….and even that is not made of wood but recycled and reconstituted motor tyres.  Certainly keeps your feet dry!

Just an idea for this weeks Cees B&W Photo Challenge of – Made by Man
