#582 - Scenic Nature Landscape
Posted By: ramseybuckeye, 06-24-2022, 01:11 PM

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #582 - Scenic Nature Landscape

This is a very broad theme as it is as broad as nature. Iím not going to get picky and say no people or man made objects, but they need to not detractor the theme. What Iíll be looking for is an overall pleasing photo, one that you wouldnít mind hanging on the wall and having it a long time. Letís get a lot of high quality images.

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 Friday 1 July 2022 whichever time zone you are in.

1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread.
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.

Tough to choose just one. But, as this one has actually been ON my wall for quite some time, I will submit this:

Alberta Falls, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA. 2015

I went to park to make a specific shot for this week's challenge, but hen found an earlier, much better pic.

This is some random place under the Stroginsky bridge which is good for looking at the dam oor taking some early morning photos, so me and my friend went there, naturally. Had a ton of fun shooting there, probably would do that again.

Somewhere in Strogino, Moscow, 06.24.2022, around 4 AM

I’ve been short with time this week with family visiting and just checked in for the first time in a few days, and wow. This is going to be tough! And maybe tougher since there is still time for more!
