Winners Weekly Challenge #481 Clouds
Posted By: Bruce Clark, 01-01-2020, 03:54 AM

Thanks to all entrants, I know I enjoyed these challenges and this one for me was no exception.

BigDave First off the rank with a stunner. I might have to send this of to Dan Brown to decode.
aaacb Sure it qualifies as a pleasant peaceful scene.
photolady95 Some drama and colour here.
atupdate Brilliant colours and the plane adds a lot of interest.
mkgd1 Certainly some rugged looking country there. Enjoy the rain.
Vaskebjorn No rain but on heck of a lot of colour. Not much rain here either to help with our fires.
gump Ominous looking cloudscape with a hint of sun poking through.
Kerrowdown Brilliant colours and great detail here. I like the effect of the wide angle on the clouds.
StephenHampshire Just clouds. How many hours could we spend just watching them, identifying animals and other ever changing shapes? This brings back childhood memories.
Amonraw My favourite time of day just after sunset with the last streaks of light setting fire to the clouds.
ramseybuckeye You certainly got up early for this one. Well worth the effort.
RGlasel Looks like you have a storm brewing up there
noelcmn Spooky
jchorst A nice bright one to finish off.

There are certainly some interesting photos here and it is never easy to make a selection. However a decision has to be made so here goes.

Winner for the most unusual cloud formation I have ever seen goes to BigDave with honourable mentions to Kerrowdown and noelcm.

Thanks to everyone for participating and I hope everyone has a happy and prosperous Pentax new year.

So I hand over to BigDave to host the next one.

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

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

Well, what a surprise! Thank you Bruce for giving me the honors! OK, the next Challenge, #482, is up. In January, we look at the year ahead and reflect on the year past (the month named after the god Janus, who could look in both directions at the same time). Last time we looked up, now we look down....
