A Photo A Week Challenge: View

Stirling Castle countryside

Queen's View Scotland

As photographers, we get the chance to take a lot of pictures of many things: scenery, family, scenery, buildings, scenery, pets, scenery. You get the picture (pun intended). I can’t think of anywhere that I’ve ever been where I thought “Wow, I never want to take a picture of THIS place.” And I’m really glad about that. The world around us is amazing. Every place has it’s own type of beauty. These pictures are from our recent trip to Scotland. The first one is looking over the countryside from Stirling Castle. The second (one I’ve posted before) is call The Queen’s View and was the favorite view of Queen Margaret (Robert the Bruce’s wife) in all of Scotland. So this week’s challenge is to find the beauty in your view, whether it’s just outside your kitchen window or from a once-in-a-lifetime trip.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

      1. That temple is on my list of ones to visit. My mother used to have a goal of visiting all of the temples in the world. She’s 81 and has made it to over 50, but she doesn’t think she’ll get to the rest now. 🙂
