Square January #23

heading UPHILL

Always the optimist, Becky is hoping that 2021 will be a more positive year as we march onwards and upwards. Yes, the theme for January Squares is the word ‘up’ and as usual she invites us all to join her in a month of ‘ups’ of any description. The only absolute rule is that your main photograph must be SQUARE, and remember a square has 4 equal sides.

    That’s a lovely study. Works well in black and white 🙂 🙂 Happy Saturday!

      One of our hills to reach home.

      1. restlessjo says:

        Yes, I remember it in colour. 🤗💕

    Onwards and upwards! A positive post.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not feeling very positive today despite blue skies.

      1. margaret21 says:

        Oh dear. We all seem to come and go a bit. I’m doing OK today. But tomorrow? Who knows.

  3. Suzanne says:

    Love the angle of the road and here’s to us all moving upwards and onwards.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s a long slow road for us right now. But at least spring is on the horizon.

      1. Suzanne says:

        Spring will bring more cheer and your garden will be lovely to see x

        1. Heyjude says:

          Some bulbs are starting to appear.

    oh this is so beautiful

    1. Heyjude says:

      Lovely winter trees.

    Ever so excellent Jude. I just love love it…everything, the sky, the road, the trees, the shapes perspective and using black and white was a stroke of genius 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Brian. I get the impression you like it 😀

      1. bushboy says:

        Yeah……not bad 😀

    Around here, that would qualify as a ‘steep incline’. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It makes me puff a bit!

      1. beetleypete says:

        I have got so unused to hills now, they have become a real challenge. Even tiny ones. 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          Yes, you really do need to go up them daily or you soon get out of breath. We have an even steeper one just outside our house (the one that leads to Alice) and the challenge is to reach a gate before stopping! Gets the heart pumping that’s for sure.

    Poignant, but lovely. Is it snow covered today?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not at all. Just the B&W effect used which does give it that impression.

  8. Love this..very artistic.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you 😊

  9. I want to get to the top of that lane and see what the view’s like.

    1. Heyjude says:

      You can just see the sea to your right. And sheep with lambs in the field behind that hedge.

  10. Positive is good … but I’m almost there. The slower moving legs as I lean forward walking. The tired legs on the bicycle. Almost there … keep moving, keep moving … then stop at the top for a breather.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, sometimes you just have to keep moving those heavy legs 😄
