Hello, Janice aka Serial Crafter waving to you from a very snowy Scotland! It's my turn to create some prompts for your Lucky Snapping in 2013 week. I thought I'd take us back to our original 365 roots and provide some photo prompts. You can use old photos or take them as you go, you can post every day or have a round up of your week's photos, it's entirely up to you.
I've been thinking about the prompts I could give you. I was reading my book the other night and in it there is a character who is very fond of using Mnemonics to remember different facts, it struck me that this would be ideal for a photo prompt. One of the best known of these is Richard of York gave Battle in Vain which is used to help remember the colours of the spectrum as seen in a rainbow. There are seven colours, one for each day!
Apologies to non-native English speakers, but I know you like to learn new things!
We had a heavy snowfall yesterday, about 4 inches (10cm). We had to cancel our appointments in town because the country roads were not clear. However, the sun came out and it was the perfect opportunity to take photographs. This is my RED glove on the snow.
You can see the depth of the snow on top of our roller which, fortuitously, happens to be YELLOW. We use the roller in the spring to make sure there are no stones or raised earth that would contaminate the silage or hay crop, it also compact the soil which makes the grass have to work harder and become stronger.
It may not be obvious what this is! It's a pile of sandstone slabs and troughs piled up behind the hedge and covered with snow. The sandstone is the perfect base for lichen to grow and gives them a GREEN tinge.
I deliberately went back and took this view that I photographed last week to show the snowy covering. The sky is a beautiful 'sky BLUE'.
INDIGO is a tricky colour to define, it should probably be a little more purply but this was a close as I could find, that deep blue is such a contrast to the snow overhanging the gutters on our house.
I couldn't find anything outside that was VIOLET so am showing you my hat. It's the one I wear going to work on cold days, it combines two of my favourite colours, teal and violet.
Add your photographs to the Linky and I'll vist your blog to comment as soon as I possibly can.
