#333 - Descent
Posted By: Hattifnatt, 11-05-2015, 02:11 PM

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #333 - DESCENT

Thanks to sealonsf for a wonderful challenge last week and to all who participated.

This week, show us your interpretation of descent — experiment with your point of view and angle, or go even deeper with the theme.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

The Challenge will run until midnight next Thursday, November 12, 2015, whichever time zone you are in.

Rules
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. Any Pentax (or Samsung DSLR) camera can be used.
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.

Swinging Bridge

Descending down the swinging bridge always gives me butterflies.

No question in my mind, this one hands down has captured the true heart of the theme. I have been climbing on only three occasions, and that is enough for my life time. This is the most difficult and physically exhausting part, going back down with a heavy field pack. You must be in excellent physical condition because you can end up with permanent back issues. Again, a wonderful photo, thanks very much for sharing. Tonytee
Wow, thanks for the comment 😊

As the challenge host - Hattifnatt - said: What goes up must come down ...

Here is my descent during paragliding, taken with my "Pandatrooper brick" (Pentax K-01 + the SMC 21mm Ltd):

Funicular!


No real purpose to this post other than I don't get to say (or write) that word often.

The forum connects your posts if you do them in rapid succession. Know that my "funicular" post was for fun, and this one is my official entry.
