Day Twenty-nine

The theme for Becky’s  April Squares challenge is ‘top’ 

    1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
    2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
    3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
    4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
    5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!
Tree top

Whilst walking around the lanes and up the hill I have been spending this month looking for tops for Becky’s challenge and lines for my own. This image has both.

This is the penultimate day of Becky’s Squares, but my photo challenge runs all year so if you fancy joining in, then please have a look at the loosely based rules. And whist Becky gets to take a break for a couple of months  I shall be hard at it!

April Squares | Day Twenty-nine

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. Only joking, actually it does look fuzzy, the hedges are blackthorn and this photo was taken just before the blossom opened. It hasn’t lasted long this year.

  1. Tree-Top is an obvious one, but you have raised it to another level, with a photo that looks a lot like an oil-painting. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. I really like this shot Jude. I’m wondering if an uncropped (assuming you didn’t shoot it square?) version would accentuate the horizontal lines more?

        1. It’s Becky’s square challenges that made me look at things in a different way. If you start with a square format it does alter the composition that might not be possible with cropping. I change to a wider angle when I want a landscape view.

    2. This was a couple of weeks ago so the bluebells hadn’t appeared then and it’s Gorse not broom, though similar flowers close up. I shall try and find some bluebells when the rain clears.
