Weekly Challenge #325 May 22nd-27th "If you go down to the Woods Today"
Posted By: StephenHampshire, 05-22-2015, 12:20 AM

Prompted by some nice weather recently, and the recent show of bluebells here in the UK, my theme for this week is
"If you go down to the Woods today....."

Show me your woodland scenes, trees, plants animals, people in the woods, spring autumn summer or winter scenes....I might be in for a surprise!

To run till Midnight 27th as we are a bit kate starting this week!


1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Photos from any Pentax camera (film, compact, DSLR, etc.) -- or a Samsung DSLR -- are allowed.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Some samples.....

Almost hidden

It's been a while since I played and as it happened I was out last night - so if you look closely you'll see Bucky Beaver way in the back.

Here's a flower I found in a garden in a small clearing in some woods.

It's not as it seems in the woods.

One of my favorite shots that has been around for a tad. The picture is actually presented here upside down and has fooled many people over the years.Stand on your head and you will see----charliezap
