K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Break of Dawn

New K n D Prompt Shot

finding new ways to get Cosmic!


Greetings All. Welcome to a brand new Monday and a brand new chapter in the ongoing, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge!

This week, the duties fell on Dale and he chose to do what I consider to be a sort of ‘two-parter’. That is to say, his last prompt choice had us looking at The End of the Day.

This time around, he’s asking us to consider:


finch song, golden gate park, wildlife

I like it. And in liking it, I found myself swinging in two directions:

The first was another music based prompt answer. For me, there’s only one song by this name and one artist who does it true justice: Michael Jackson.

This one comes from his ‘Invincible’ CD, and although not my favorite M.J. song (I currently go with ‘Stranger in Moscow’), this one seemed perfect for today- not to mention the fact that I’m writing this just about at the ‘Break of Dawn’


I also wanted to include a bit of artwork to this challenge. I decided to to go with a piece I did some time ago depicting San Francisco’s world-famous Golden Gate Bridge and one- no, three of my favorite local/migrating birds, the Great Blue Heron:



herons at dawn

So. There you have it. My take on Dale’s ‘Break of Dawn’ prompt.

What about you?

You ready to give it a go?


night gives way to the dawn…

It’s not too late and if you need some further ‘prompting’ (see what I did there?) Here’s how to make it happen:

Create your post as you normally do. Once completed to your exacting specifications, copy said post’s URL and paste it into the comment section of the challenge post you’ll find at Dale’s site (linked above!!!), or this challenge post. (called a ‘pingback’)

Be sure to use our #CosPhoChal tag along with any other tags you like using. Hit that publish button and you’re done!


Here’s to an awesome Monday!

    1. It’s really important you not just ‘borrow’ others’ work and post it on your site without first asking. There are those who would automatically call it copyright infringement. You always want to ask first and when/if the owner of the work you seek to use gives that permission, provide a direct link back to where you borrowed the artwork from. I need you to do this now with the parrot picture you used from my site. If you don’t know how to do this, just say so.

      If you want to ‘feature’ other works of mine on your site(s), please first obtain permission, then be sure to offer your readers and me a link back to my site. This needs to happen every time an agreement is made.


        1. Be sure to do this for every site you want to feature work from. There may be other ways, but one method would be go to the post with the artwork you’re looking to get permission to use. Once it’s been granted, copy the URL of the post (in the address bar at the top of the page). WordPress gives you the option to add links in your posts while you are creating them. You can Google this or contact WordPress admin people on how to if you’re not sure. Once done, that link will direct readers back to the source of the original post and to the artwork you wish to feature. My email is located on the main page of my site. Let me know when you get the WordPress link information?
