Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for Yellow. A bright and happy colour and often associated with spring. The sun in the sky, heat and light. What yellows can you find in your world?

Heat up the summer

The last time I saw this golden field was in 2015. Four years after I first set eyes upon it. A good example of crop rotation. Growing above head height I had to hold the camera above my head to get some of these shots. As the pollen caused my eyes to water and my nose to sneeze, I think it was worth it…

This is the last week for the colour yellow so if you have any left then please join in now. Next Sunday we will be looking for a different colour to jazz up the month of March.

Flashback Friday #9

Lincoln Cathedral: Choir Screen was written in February 2017 – one of several posts about this lovely cathedral which we visited in 2016 on a road journey up the east coast of England culminating in Scotland.


The †13C limestone choir screen is a marvellous example of decorated Gothic architecture with pinnacles and arches with tiny carved animal heads.

The walls of the screen are covered with carvings of leaves and flowers. Traces of red and blue paint can still be seen on them.

I only wish I lived closer as I could spend many an hour focussing on the details of this screen.


This post is a contribution to Fandango’s Flashback Friday. Have you got a post you wrote in the past on this particular day? The world might be glad to see it – either for the first time – or again if they’re long-time loyal readers.
