Slope • Tuesday Photo Challenge

Dutch goes the Photo has posted a new challenge for its Tuesday Photo Challenge: Slope. This is quite a challenge for someone from the flat-lands, a.k.a. the Netherlands. Not a natural slope for miles around, unless it is the cliched dunes. Fortunately, the challenge is as wide as you’d like it to be: Whether the slope of a line, a gently flowing hill slope, or sloping down a stream, there’s plenty that can be done with this theme.

I took this photo of an art installation to celebrate 200 years of seaside resort Scheveningen, called Ringen aan Zee (Rings at sea). It sprang from the mind of landscape architect Bruno Doedens (SLeM). I took this photo with an iPhone 6, and tweaked it slighlty using Adobe Lightroom.

A less literal interprtation of slope is the below photo of the slopes that are part of the roof of a Japanese building in the Botanical Gardens in Leiden. Again, the camera of choice was the Apple iPhone 6. Post in the Apple app Photos.

Steep • Tuesday Photo Challenge

Dutch goes the Photo has posted a new challenge for its Tuesday Photo Challenge: Steep. This challenge is as wide as you’d like it to be: Part of what attracted me to this theme is that the word can be taken into many directions, while you wait for your tea to steep; as long as the price is not too steep, there will be plenty of room for wandering along the steep cliffs!

I took this photo of an art installation in Dubai, which gave you the impression it was a mile high. The ‘camera’ I used was an old iPhone 4S. Tweaked the original using Adobe Lightroom.

If that doesn’t give you the creeps, maybe this photo will. Taken of a tower in Pietrasanta, Tuscany, Italy. Again with the old iPhone 4S. Just looking up was enough to trigger my innate fear of heights.
