Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 28 – Glorious

I’ve been back from my recent holiday for just over a week. The days were warm, sunny, fresh and, most of all, dry. In fact, the weather was glorious.

Hugh's Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 28 - Glorious

Not only can you tell from the photo just how glorious the weather was, but so were the views on offer. However, the weather and view were not the only glorious things in my opinion; so were all the boats. They stood out and showed off just how wonderful they were and fitted the whole scene very well.

For this week’s photo challenge show me what your interpretation of Glorious is. Maybe it’s the weather or a stunning view you came across on a recent trip. How about a celebration that was glorious or an outstanding performance or sports event which you were part of?

Want to join the fun? Here’s what you need to do.

1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken which interprets Glorious.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 28 – ‘Glorious’
3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section so other participants can view the post.

Last week’s challenge was about all things Vintage. Wow! This subject proved to be very popular and not only did you share some wonderful vintage objects, but you also shared some amazing stories about them. Here are the six entries I’m showcasing this week. Why not visit them and leave them a comment.

Samina, at BiPolar1Blog, found a really interesting vintage object whilst doing some major renovation on a property. It’s a find like this that can not only make digging up the past exciting, but it can also reveal a lot more.

Darlene, at Darlene Foster’s Blog, shared a photo with us that is full of mystery. Many of us are hoping she’ll solve the mystery of the two ladies in the photo and what their story is.

Vintage doesn’t have to mean objects that are very old, and Joelle, at Two On A Rant, proved this with a photo she shared. I so remember my sister being attached to these and I also remember owning one of the cameras Joelle mentions. They really were magic.

Leanne, at You Inspire Me, shared a photo of an object that really caught my eye. I love the colour of the object and remember owning a far smaller version. I only wish I still had it and its original box.

Carrie Ann, at Anniehow, took us on a tour of her Mother’s house and shared with us some photos of various vintage items. The vintage typewriter certainly got my attention because I remember one of my first jobs was selling the electric version. Happy memories.

Helen, at Journey To Ambeth, had me dreaming of a ride in a vintage car. She’s a collector of vintage clothes and has built up a wonderful array of items you’d not fail to see on the set of Downton Abbey and other period drama television programmes. Thanks for sharing them with us, Helen.

Thank you to everyone that entered photos for the challenge.

Entries for this week’s challenge are open until Monday 13th June 2016. I’ll showcase at least five entries when announcing the next challenge. Have fun!

  1. Beautiful place… Dartmouth is one of my favourite places in Devon… did you do the boat ride from Dartmouth to Torquay? On a nice summer’s day the coastline looks beautiful from out at sea.. Mind you when we did it there was a bit of a swell as you came out of Dartmouth bay.. I haven’t got sea-legs 😀 😀

    A wonderful theme Hugh and here is my contribution http://ryanphotography.uk/2016/06/08/hughs-weekly-photo-challenge-week-28-glorious/

    1. We only did a harbour trip, Bren, as we ran out of time to do everything. However, we did take a stream train ride which was a wonderful experience. We’ll certainly be making a return trip to Dartmouth.
      Thank you so much for participating.

      1. Oh we’ve done the Paignton to Kingswear Steam train every time we’ve visited… It is like a ritual for me every time I visit. Simply because of the lovely scenery and coastline… I would give my right arm to move down to that area..

        To be honest there are so many lovely places I don’t where I want to live to be perfectly honest… everywhere I go and I like the scenery I am always saying ‘I’d love to move here.’

  2. Glorious indeed Hugh…what a wonderful holiday if this photo is anything to go by. West Country by any chance? We had a glorious weekend in the New Forest in our motorhome weekend before last, but I don’t get a chance to blog much these days and share pics which is a shame. Hope to join in with your challenge at some point…and I’m still here, just… 🙂 xx

    1. Dartmouth, South Devon, Sherri. We were only there for five days but had a brilliant time. Will certainly be going back at some stage. It’s a lovely part of the UK.
      The New Forest is a part of the UK I’ve not visited. You’ll have to tell me all about it when I see you on Saturday. So looking forward to it.

      1. Well, I’m getting my photo ready to join in tomorrow Hugh! And I know how difficult it is to choose one breathtaking moment. 🙂
        Look for my pingback later tonight. 🙂 xo

      2. I will, Debby, although not all Pingbacks are working at the moment. It’s yet another problem that WordPress are dealing with. However, even if it does not work, I’ll still see your post as I follow you. Am off to London first thing tomorrow (meeting with Ali, Geoff, and Sacha for our pre-Bash PJ Party), so may not respond until Sunday. Looking forward to seeing what you are going to post. 😎

  3. Glorious weather, and glorious views on offer eh Hugh.. I always look down when the flight goes over the beaches to check out the boat paths from the sky. This is closer home on land.. 🙂

    I have a pic for glorious weather too, but in my part of the world, the world has turned rainy, the first rains after a long hot sweaty summer.. 🙂
