Weekly Challenge #421 Coast
Posted By: Bruce Clark, 04-30-2018, 02:40 PM

This week challenge is "Coast". As I am heading to Victoria's Wilson's Promontory this weekend, am area known for its beautiful and rugged coastal scenes, this seems an appropriate subject for this weeks challenges. I am really interested in the relationship between sky, land and sea. For anyone with access to the ocean any large standing body of water will suffice.

A few samples to stir the creative juices.

Good luck

This challenge will close at Midnight on Tuesday April 8 Australian Eastern Standard Time

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/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, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Here's a pic, to get you started (the subject is not bound to motor vehicles though):

Playa Las Lajas, Panama, on the Pacific side. The sky was as cloudy and hazy as it looks, even so, the July sun was intense enough to burn this Great White Northern Whale. Photo taken with SMC A 70-210 f4.

We visited Porto and its neighbourhood with my girlfriend last September. There was bed weather during the first day of our stay and we were staring at the huge waves for hours as we are only used to the smaller ones at the shore of Lake Balaton and riverside of the Danube in Hungary.
