Weekly Challenge #480 "The Dark before the Dawn"
Posted By: StephenHampshire, 12-15-2019, 01:51 AM

Honoured to be chosen as last weeks winner, so here goes with another challenge- running from 15/12/19 to 21/12/19 - i.e.will end Midnight Saturday 21st December

As this challenge will end on the Winter Solstice her in the Northern Hemisphere, I have chosen the "Dark before the Dawn" as a subject. The longest night of the year, with a festival of light and hope to come!



The Challenge will run from now until next Saturday 21st DecemberWednesday. Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo.
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 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 are a couple from me to get us going
