Photo Scavenger Hunt: Light/Dark

Joining in with Kates's weekly photo scavenger hunt today.   


This is the last week that Kate is hosting this challenge after 5 years of coming up with prompts.  It has been fun Kate, thank you so much for all the time and effort you've put into it.   I've enjoyed taking part and seeing what everyone else has come up with for the words.  It has been a lovely creative diversion.  There will be a new host from next month - Astrid of Dragon Stitches and Stuff by Astrid and I'm looking forward to following along.

But for today Kate's last prompt is Light/Dark

I had to scratch my head a bit for this one but looked again to the sky and sun  

Looking back over some photos while I was searching for sunsets last week, I came across these pics that I took back in January on a beautiful day even though it stayed dark most of the day.    

This is at Warrenpoint Shore looking down Carlingford Lough with Finn McCool and the Cooley Mountains on the right and the sun barely up in the sky even though it was nearly midday. 

This last one was taken on the Boa Island on Lough Erne in Co. Fermanagh at 2pm in the middle of January and again the light had hardly changed. I love the moodiness of those cold days.  

The clocks change tomorrow  (I have to remind myself they Spring Forward not Fall Back!). Already we're having dinner without pulling the curtains - this year has moved so fast and yet it feels like we've hardly moved. But looking back at these photos we can see the movement easily. I love the fact that we get brighter now by 2 minutes a day until the Summer Solstice.

We've just cancelled another tour for May so there'll be lots more focussing on the garden and the sky to look forward to and to keep us amused.  

Check out the other interpretations of this prompt HERE.    And thanks once again Kate.


  1. Hi Fil - you've covered the Light/Dark aspects brilliantly with these photos ... and won't it just be lovely to have some warmer weather. Oh gosh I see you've had to cancel another tour ... I guess some rest time too - though mental frustration at wanting to get on with life. Challenging for us all ... stay safe - Hilary

  2. Love your moody photos. I am enjoying the daylight hours lengthening each day and, whilst we 'lose' an hour tomorrow, we'll be able to have our tea in the daylight! Just wish the days would not whizz past so fast. Such a shame about the cancelled tour. As you say, more time for gardening.

  3. I love how you have captured both light and dark in every photo, and I particularly like the last shot :)

  4. Beautifully moody - perfect for dark and light 🤍 thank you so much for joining in the scavenger photo hunt over the years xxxx

  5. Gorgeous photos representing light and dark.

  6. Lovely photos Fil & even the reflections are amazing. Our clocks go back on 4th April, so must remember our time differences once again. Glad you've joined in with these & that I've another friend afar. Must catch up with that cousin of yours too. Take care, stay safe & hugs.

  7. Love these landscapes and how handy to have come across them last week so you could get a bit ahead of the game 😃

  8. Wow, beautiful photos! I love the reflection in the water and seeing the snow in the last one.
    I'm so sorry you had to cancel for May, more quality time at home then.

  9. Ah, this is such a marvellous photo for the prompt!x
