Changing Seasons 2016: February

This post is for Cardinal Guzman’s monthly Changing Seasons photography challenge.

I joined in with this challenge for the first half of last year, taking photographs along all the lanes around the village that I live in. Unfortunately I was taking so many pictures that it reached the point where I couldn’t find time to sort through them all to create a gallery! This year I’m limiting the area I’ll be photographing to a single place – the little wooded path alongside the wildflower meadow and down to the stream. This is my favourite place in the village.

At the moment the meadow is bare so all of this month’s pictures are either from the wooded path or the stream. Whilst daffodils are in bloom everywhere else, beneath the shelter of the trees they have yet to flower. Snowdrops have been February’s main feature.

I hope you all like them.


If you’re interested in joining in with the challenge, here are the rules. This year there are two different versions of it that you could choose from. I chose version 1, though I’m tempted to try out version 2 with some artwork…

Version 1

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery.
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

 Version 2 

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!

    • Thank you. I’m glad you like them 🙂 It’s a lovely little area that hopefully won’t leave me with too many pictures to sort through!


  3. These are beautiful! Convinced that this place is part of some fairytale.


    • It’s a wonderful place. I’ll often take a notepad down there with me and sit and write. It’s very inspiring. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.
