August 2018 – Daily Photo Challenge

Adidas Predator football boots, a picture of coriander leaves and too much broccoli, all inspiration for our daily August 2018 shots.

The month kicks off with a glorious island sunset. Despite this, locals will tell you this is the month we call ‘Scruffy August‘. Photo of the month for August 2018 was probably on Day 216, our strobist picture of LW House at night.

Daily photos include a white daisy with raindrops, Chubbs Spring water tanks, red letter box, apple crumble pie and thorn trees at Knollcombes.

The August 2018 line up is complete. Look out for a BIG milestone celebration next month.
