K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Beauty of Wood, The Gleam of Metal, and the Reflections of Glass

New K n D Prompt Shot

finding new ways to get Cosmic!

Greetings All,

So, how can I make the fact that it’s cold outside (no, really…), I completely overworked myself yesterday, AND it’s Monday feel a little better?

By welcoming you all to the latest, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is how!

My buddy Dale and I could have picked any day of the week for the unveiling of each of our weekly challenges, but we unanimously agreed offering a Friday prompt, followed by a Monday reveal probably was best and so far it does seem to be the case!

This particular past Friday, I got to set the prompt for today’s reveal and I went with a very bold ‘three-fer’ as Dale says. All this means is the challenge happens in three parts:

The Beauty of Wood, The Gleam of Metal, and the Reflections of Glass

not too crazy, right?

Well, after pondering all weekend (okay, maybe not ALL weekend!), I came up with the following:

First, The Beauty of Wood. From a graphic of my actual musical instruments, to a few Bonsai trees, to a pretty cool tree stump at a place called, Strawberry Hill in Golden Gate Park here in San Francisco, these are definitely some of my favorite wood shots:

Second, The Gleam of Metal. Now, I know one of these shots might seem like it doesn’t quite fit with the other three, but when I ran the word, ‘gleam’ through my head a few times, I just couldn’t leave this fantastic horn player from this year’s Carnival celebration out of the metallic equation! The remaining three shots are of the metallic doors of the remarkable Grace Cathedral located at the top of Masonic Street here in San Francisco:

Thirdly, but not lastly (!?), Reflections of Glass. Now if you head back up to the last group, I could easily add the horn player again for those cool reflections coming not only from his musical instrument, but from his shades too! I figured, after much inner debate, to go with some other shots:


Now while most of these are not technically reflections through a true glass surface, I thought I’d mix it up and offer reflections through the ocean shore during low tide, a snowy egret reflected on a still lake (an incredible photo op that day was!), and three graphics of Mr. Cool and a pair of sunglasses I still wouldn’t mind having!

So there you have it! My take(s) on the ‘three-fer’ challenge today.

It’s really not such a hard thing to join in. Here’s all you need to do:

Create your post just as you normally would. Once complete, copy your freshly created post’s URL and paste it into the comment section of this challenge post and/or Dale’s challenge post (he’s linked up above). Doing so creates something called a ‘pingback‘, a means of letting others quickly find and admire your work.

Be sure to use our #CosPhoChal tag along with any other tags you like to use and that’s it, you’re done!

Hope there’s a sensational week ahead for us all!

  1. Well, that was stunning ! It hard to pick a favourite, the guy from the parade is a brilliant take. The tree stump is a favourite too, I used one as did Dale. I think the lake reflection is the one that blew me away and the sun glasses and the shadow..
    Brilliant all of them! 💜
