Thursday’s Special: Tall

Do you like capturing tall people, animals, trees, buildings, or perhaps high mountains? If you do, show me something tall, or alternatively you can play with perspective and capture something that is not tall at all, but gives the impression of being such. You are also allowed artistic license so you may tackle “tall” idiomatically as in “standing tall” or “walking tall”. Wherever your inspiration for tall in photography may come from, your entries are awaited with interest and joy.

You are looking at the Thursday’s Special challenge post with the theme tall. If you want to join the challenge, leave me your links and link to this post.Β and most of all have fun!

P.S. Speaking of lighthouses, there is a lady on WordPress that I like a lot who only recently discovered her talent for painting, and guess what her favourite subjects are lighthouses.

  5. Great photo. The sky behind adds to the sense of tallness. I didn’t immediately pick it as a light house but rather saw it as a rural scene with either silo or shot tower. I can see it now. Unusual to have a lighthouse without the water being a dominant feature. The music was enjoyable also.


    • Yes, it was difficult to capture it from the sea. I have a few shots for some time in the future that show it with a bit of water πŸ˜‰ Thank you very much for your positive feedback, Irene. Have a great weekend!

  6. I love lighthouses. Every single one seems to have its own particular atmosphere and ‘story’, and in many cases, great drama too. This is a very fine shot, Paula, and intriguing, because at the moment you took it (and in a rather back-to-front way) the light is coming from the sea, and not from the lighthouse. But ah. Wait for nightfall, and then the light will shine out…


  7. Beautiful soft light and gently creeping colour, Paula. πŸ™‚ And then, of course, gentle caressing music to go with.
    Hope life is not being too mean this week, hon.


    • Hello Jo. It’s not the best of weeks or months (trying to get rid of a cold before the hay fever attack by having 8 hour sleep at night). I am glad you like the photo. It was taken the last week before my knee went bad.
