#375 - lighthouses
Posted By: rod_grant, 12-26-2016, 05:27 PM

The new challenge will be (inspired by my win last week thanks to Rense) LIGHTHOUSES
Now most of my lighthouse images are made while touring - no time to wait for light or mood or anything else - but I know that some of you will have really studied and inspirational images!!

The Challenge will close on Tuesday, January 3, midnight, Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time. (7 days from now)

The 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 Ricoh 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, then the winner will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Here are some of mine.

Well done!!
I didn't have any trouble finding yours.
But Hattifnatt's? I have looked and looked on the island in the Danube and cannot see anything like a lighthouse.
I was so interested, because I have never heard of a lighthouse on a river.

The Barcelona lighthouse was photographed (with a K-x) near Lake Erie in New York State. The lighthouse has long been retired as an aid to navigation.

Happy new year to all, and thanks to our host and to all participants.
