Tuesdays of Texture : Week 24 of 2017

 

Roches Point, Cork Harbour

Roches Point Lighthouse

The sea, the grasses, the cloudy sky and the lighthouse – all different textures to make up my Tuesday of Texture!

Weekly Photo Challenge : (Extra) Ordinary

Mundane and  meaningful objects

Beautiful everyday things

I enjoy being out in the countryside, enjoying the scenery and nature in general.    The things that make up beautiful scenery can be the things we see all the time – grasses, a few plants, a tree or two, a stream, sunshine, some patchwork fields and hills.  If you take each item on its own, it can be ordinary and mundane, but put them all together, or let nature put them all together, and you have something EXTRA ordinary.

Grass is usually a shade of green, but sometimes in summer/autumn the colour can change as the grass dies and waits for the new growth in spring.

And of course golf courses often have the best grass, to help that little white ball run a long way!

The African bush looks a little different, but still the grass grows there.
