Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Paths, Trails, Sidewalks



Tourists flood the High Street in Gibraltar, a busy location.

But not all locations are as busy.  Simple or grand they all allow access to a different world and in many places they are far from lonely places. Places to socialise, gossip, take refreshments or simply just stroll.

But even in this busy world there is often just somewhere where you can enjoy solitude.  Here are a few we have wandered and discovered across in our travels over this last year….

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shadows


I just love shadows…they can be harsh or soft, whatever they do they add a dimension to a one dimensional image.

In situations like above the harsh shadows and the shaft on sunlight all act as a spotlight on these ancient Scottish Grave Markers at Kilmartin and the engravings.

Shadows can be the subject of the image…


or simply add a little drama…


and if you shoot directly into the sun it is definitely the shadows that create the image by creating silhouettes…


In addition to adding a little drama, Shadows can also be used to emphasis scale…


Give me a little sunshine and we will have shadows, life would be dull without them..
