Weekly Travel Theme: Misty & Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

I’m up to my old tricks again this week, and combining two challenges. Whilst searching out some images for Ailsa’s Travel Theme of Misty, I realised that these images were all taken on the threshold of an adventure, a journey… Two birds and one stone sprang to mind, as the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Threshold. (Click the links to see more examples of each of these themes).

So without further ado, I present

Scotch Mist – this one was taken on Skye, and is of the Old Man of Storr on a misty morning. In this case,the adventure of exploring the Quiraing was delayed until the following day owing to the misty conditions.

Umbria – early morning around where we were staying in the Valnerina in South Eastern Umbria. It was a fantastic view which was extremely short lived
as the cloud soon lifted and we travelled on to the amazing remote Piano Grande.

Lazio – Civita di Bagnoregio in early morning. The misty low cloud soon blew over and we were free to walk the footbridge into the hamlet and explore:

In case you are wondering why the monochrome, the Skye image was black and white so I thought I wouldconvert the other two…. and considered that
it might suit the misty aspect..what do you think?

  3. Beautifully combined and I like the B&W processing – suits the images very well.

  4. It looks really great! My favourite is the last one, but they all have a wonderful misty mood, well done.
    Enjoy your weekend!
    Love, Dina

  6. I think the monochrome works well, Sue – particularly in that last image. Beautiful.

  7. Suzanne

    Beautiful photos – the black and white gives them a timeless feel.

  8. Enchanting surounding and magical pictures!

  9. I think these are wonderful and the B&W is perfect. They wouldn’t be nearly as dramatic in color.

    Oh these are REALLY lovely Sue . I’m particularly drawn to the Old Man of Storr .. full of atmosphere one feels anything could happen … something out of a legend .
    I bet you’ve some nice views from that hilltop hamlet you’re keeping back * wink

    • Thanks, Poppy! And there was me thinking I had nothing that would fit the bill! I do have some images of Civita, I though I had posted some previously but find I haven’t, so one day!

  19. I like the Valnerina photo, but the Civita di Bagnoregio is really great! Awesome with the mist, the hill and the bridge. Great B&W photo.

  22. They all look great in black and white, Sue. You could have done Paula’s ‘Black and White Sunday’ too 🙂

  23. The mist adds a lot of drama, as does the B&W processing. Love the last one especially Sue.

  24. Absolutely fabulous shots…I mean it!
    ABSOLUTELY FAB!!….I’m drooling!

  25. Great entry again … very interesting with the black & white change, I would personally prefer them in colors.

  26. Caz

    Love the b&w and the ‘feel’ of the shots. Particularly drawn to the first image – it looks like somewhere I would enjoy exploring!
