'Little Morton Hall' by Quita Brown of Market Drayton U3A

A surfeit of angles wherever you look.

'Dandelion Clock' by Rosemary Gibbs of Rugby U3A

'Dandelion Clock' by Rosemary Gibbs of Rugby U3A

I picked a perfect seed-head of the Lesser goat's beard, somewhat larger than a common dandelion clock, which I found on the roadside verge whilst on a local walk. On getting it home it was no longer intact but the structure showed strong angular spaces framed by the remaining softer parasol heads, each with their acute angles between the ribs radiating from their centres.

'Angles in Architecture' by Chris Winner of Flintshire U3A

'Angles in Architecture' by Chris Winner of Flintshire U3A

A building in a local retail park. I chose the viewpoint to enhance the angular structure and black and white, monochrome to emphasise the features.

'A Different Angle on Power ' by John Owen of Worcester Area Group U3A

'A Different Angle on Power ' by John Owen of Worcester Area Group U3A

These powerful lines and the multitude of angles they create, define an imposing structure striding tall and commanding above the countryside. A beautiful summer’s day provided the ideal opportunity to photograph this colossus, which just for a moment seemed to stand on guard, blocking our path.

This is a large wild mushroom I found in a field while walking at the Henry Moore Foundation.

'Lockdown Reflection' by Ian Weatherley of Witham & District (Essex) U3A.

'Lockdown Reflection' by Ian Weatherley of Witham & District (Essex) U3A.

An almost chaotic arrangement of lines and angles created by this chunky style of panda ornament and a selection of mirrors.

'V&A Dundee by Mike Taylor of Dundee U3A

'V&A Dundee by Mike Taylor of Dundee U3A

The Kengo Kuma designed V&A Dundee museum is the centrepiece of Dundee’s developing waterfront and projects into the river Tay. The spectacular building is covered in angular blocks but selecting the best shot proved harder than expected. The chosen view shows the V&A making a large angle with the Tay Road Bridge plus an array of angular blocks overhanging the river, even the gull performing a fly past is joining in with an angle.

'Spider Web' by Peter Higginbottom of Barnsley U3A

'Spider Web' by Peter Higginbottom of Barnsley U3A

Always liked spider webs, caught this early morning after the rain, on my Smart car, angle of the mirror and window

Knowledge of angles is essential to construct a sundial.

'Steps' by Roy Morton of Sidcup U3A

A multitude of angles shot using three different angles of approach to the photograph. Taken when walking along the Saxon Shore Way, Herne Bay, Kent.

'Triangles' by Llinos Harris of Hartley Wintney & District U3A

This stack of triangles shows all angles.

'Light Angles' by Angela	Owen of Worcester Area Group U3A

'Light Angles' by Angela Owen of Worcester Area Group U3A

I’m delighted by the impact of this image of the many angles formed by these entangled angle-lamps. The capture of their structure is enhanced by reflections in the black glass surface I placed them on.

'Marquetry Floor' by Pamela Martin of Balsall Common U3A

'Marquetry Floor' by Pamela Martin of Balsall Common U3A

I am always pleased with the clean lines of symmetry, it brings order and calm to this sometimes chaotic world

'Building Site' by Carol Andrews of Haywards Heath U3A

'Building Site' by Carol Andrews of Haywards Heath U3A

Building sites and the creative activity involved are a source of endless fascination; it always amazes me that actual buildings eventually emerge from what looks like complete chaos.

'Angles' by Win Ayling of Broomfield & District U3A

'Angles' by Win Ayling of Broomfield & District U3A

Just a collection of different angles - this is just what came to mind when considering the topic.
