Arches are one of my favorite framing devices, and Europe is full of them. Here are two photos my husband took, one at Roman ruins in Italy and one in a Croatian Old Town. It’s nice to show off his talent every now and then!
But in a more natural setting, who doesn’t like using foliage for framing? I immediately thought of this photo I took on a hike along the coast on the Beara Peninsula in Co. Cork, Ireland. I took pictures of this lighthouse from several angles with different framing devices; you can see more in my post for Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme.
I’ve been waiting for a challenge like this! I call this slidehow Five Ways of Looking at a Lighthouse.
We walked the Bullig Bay Loop on the Beara Peninsula, just across the water from Ardnakinna Lighthouse on Bere Island. We passed through several different terrains, and in each one we got a different view of the lighthouse.
It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think mine might be the view from the marshy inlet. We had to pause at that spot for a bit because one of our group got separated and the guide had to backtrack to find her. It all turned out well, though, and we had a lovely walk.
