Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

Every Friday, the fine folk over at The Daily Post issue a weekly photo challenge. This weeks challenge is Summer.

Summer. Where you live, summer might be arriving soon, or (if you’re in the southern hemisphere), a fleeting memory. But what signifies summer to you? 

Summer to me is about two things. Food and the outdoors. Lets explore food here and the outdoors on my enviro blog!

Summer fruits are divine. Who can pass up blueberries, raspberries and mangoes? In this household, we adore summer fruits with pancakes and tend to eat them quite frequently. Hmmm, pancakes!

Salads are a gorgeous summer meal. Light but healthy, they typify summer for me. Here, a quiche accompanies a light salad (left) and a grilled chicken salad with mango (right) is sure to tempt.

As summer draws to a close and the mango season has run its course, figs come into the spotlight. I’ve loved featuring figs in my cooking this year with a delicious fig poached in galliano dessert (left) and this gorgeous fig and goats cheese tart (right).

Ahhhh summer…. how I miss you and lament your absence as I steel myself for winters bite!

For my regular readers, the photo on my enviro blog The Environmental Rhi-Source are different from the post here!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

Every Friday, the fine folk over at The Daily Post issue a weekly photo challenge. This weeks challenge is LATE but here it is nevertheless. This weeks challenge is Blue. 

Blue. We’ve done red before, but what about blue? What do you associate blue with? The sky, the ocean…and what else? See how creative you can get with blue.

I am fairly sure I have shared this photo with you before. I too it a few weeks ago. It’s a 1 metre international class remote-controlled yacht. These amazing little crafts were racing around the lake near home, and I just loved this regal looking little blue number.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

Every Friday, the fine folk over at The Daily Post issue a weekly photo challenge. This weeks challenge is Unfocused. 

Unfocused. You may curse or cheer this week’s theme. We’re looking for that picture which is unfocused. It may be completely intentional, or accidental. You might have thought about trashing it, but in the end it definitely conveys something.

I wish I could say this was a hard challenge, but sadly I have more unfocused photos then sharp ones! I am pretty sure my name is Rhianna “Unfocused” Blackthorn. I hope you will enjoy this selection of “foodie” photos.

Wanna bite of blurry Spinach and Cheese Cannelloni?

Unfocused is as unfocused does when making Buttermilk Chicken.

This Eggy Cabbage recipe was a hit, but this photo sure wasnt!

This Sweet Potato and Lentils Curry dish has become a bit of a favourite here at home, but this photo…

Enthusiastic reader, Narf77 yesterday mentioned that sourdough is the new “in” thing. I think if they saw this blurry, bubbling sourdough starter mess, they’d think twice about it.

One of my favourite lunches, grilled garlic zucchini and leeks on toast suddenly looks like a dogs breakfast…

For my regular readers, the photos on my environmental blog The Environmental Rhi-Source is different from the post here! It’s all original photography of some of the animals I work with. I hope you will enjoy it.
