Zigzag – The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

This week’s WordPress weekly Photo challenge is Zigzag.

I just love the way the smaller path on this mountain zigzags, to meet the other path, so they become one.

This was a tough challenge, but I hope you like what I came up with.

  1. I LOVE these photos and your interpretation of the challenge. My favourite has to be the first one, that shot is really a great capture. You can definitely see that small, thin path making it’s way upwards to join the bigger one on the adventure up the mountain 🙂 They definitely look like footpaths to me, such a long and steep climb upwards.


    1. Thanks so much, Mabel. We only climbed half way up that mountain but are going to attempt to scale it to the top next time we are in Wales. Beautiful scenery and fantastic views. I’ll certainly post some pictures on my blog once we have done the climb.


      1. That is good to hear that you are taking your time up the mountain and not pushing yourself. I am sure you enjoyed yourself, it sounds like you did. Good luck with making it to the top, I am sure you. Prepare well and get all the gear you need and I look forward to hearing about it 🙂


  2. That’s one tree-less hill with the zig-zag path. Are there animals there to eat the grass? It looks like it’s been mown. wonder what the zig-zag marks on the road are for? Great pics, Hugh. 🙂


    1. Yes, there were lots of sheep up there, Maria, plus we saw rabbits and hares as well. We had to keep Toby on his lead some of the way, as we did not want him to chase any of the sheep. Those zigzag road markings are there just before getting to a zebra crossing. Nobody is allowed to park a vehicle anywhere on those zigzags on the road. The yellow zigzags in the car park were there just to warn people that no vehicle should be parked on them. It keeps the cars well apart so there is no problem in opening doors getting in and out of a vehicle. I had a real tough time finding zigzags for this weeks challenge.


  3. I think you did great with the challenge, Hugh! Love the shot of the hill in Wales. Visited Llangollen oh so many decades ago, as a teen, to participate in a music festival, and this photo brought back all those wonderful memories. Thanks for the walk down memory lane!


  4. Nice take on the theme. The thing about these photo challenges is that it makes one look beyond the mere usual and it’s possible to find the unusual among the usual.


    1. Very true. However, I found this one really difficult even though I’d spent most of the week looking around in unusual places. But, I’m pleased with the results I got and I’m already looking forward to the next challenge. After all, that’s the name of the game, isn’t it – challenge. This one was certainly just that 🙂 Thanks for checking out my blog.


      1. One of the things I enjoy about these challenges is spending a couple of hours each week, at least those weeks I actually post something, visiting other blogs and seeing how they interpret them. There’s been some pretty surprising results every week. 🙂


      2. What is better, but different? These challenges are nothing more nor less than to get our photographic juices flowing, not compare ourselves to others. If I compared myself to some of the people I follow, I’d probably throw away my camera.

        While I do my best to come up with something that meets the challenge, I try not to compare it with others’ interpretations. And interpretations are what it’s all about, not if our efforts would appear in National Geographic magazine.

        Still, I marvel at many of the photographs I see each week. there’s no getting around that.

        I know you probably didn’t want to hear all that, but it’s what popped up when I read you comment, and Id do well to remember those words myself. 🙂

        Thanks for you comments and I hope I didn’t go too far with them. 🙂


      3. Not at all, Cris, this is the whole reason why we can leave comments on posts. I always welcome comments and encourage people to leave them as I love to engage with my readers and followers. So, your comment was very welcome.
