Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon in Arizona can feel like standing on the edge of the world.

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.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Green

The Isle of Mule at Sunset

My husband and I just returned from a two-week vacation to Scotland and England. This picture is from the Isle of Mull near sunset. The picture does not do the beauty justice. I highly recommend visiting this unique part of the world.

Thanks for the fun challenge, Cee!
