Ragtag Challenge: Night

Orb shaped tree lights at night with silhouettes of branches

Large, orb shaped tree lights at night, with branches silhouetted against them.

String lights reflect their colours on a fence

Today Margaret of From Pyrenees to Pennines is inviting us to share pictures on the topic of night for the Daily Ragtag Challenge. If you have a moment, please take a look at her blog. She’s a fellow northerner – a white rose, in a historical sense, compared to my red one – and a lovely lady.

    I tried earlier to leave a comment. Didn’t work. Also didn’t work when I tried to leave a comment on Margaret’s site. This set of photos seemed like such a contrast to your more usual botanical photos that it took me by surprise, but then it occurred to me that there was something garden-esque about the images. Colors and shapes not too different from plants. I was particularly drawn to that top photo with the bright globes against the silhouettes. A lovely study. Thanks for the link to Margaret; I enjoyed it even though I couldn’t let her know. Now to try again.

      I’m sorry you’re still having such frustrating issues. Thanks for persevering. You’re right – the top picture has something of a dahlia or perhaps an allium about it. I didn’t realise till after I posted it, but today’s images are quite a contrast to these ones too.

    Thank you so much, Susan. As ever, yours are striking images. You seem to make your cityscapes just as attractive as those taken in the natural world..

    Nice selections. That second last one reminds me of that typical movie scene where the sign tempts the driver to pullover, for better or worse. 🙂
