Photo challenge :: Nature

scrapbooking photo challenge

We had a manmade challenge, so it seems only right that we have a nature challenge as well.

Your challenge is to take and post a photograph of something in nature! Interpret that however you wish, be it right outside your window or deep in the woods!

Post your image on Flickr, on your blog or in another online photo gallery. Leave a link to it in the comments on this post to be entered.

One winner will be randomly chosen to win 40 Top Tips for Better Photos, an Ella ebook by Rebecca Cooper.

Please see this post for all the deadlines and details about this weekend.

Can’t wait to see your pictures of flowers, trees, insects and so forth — but please resist the urge to stick your macro lens in a wasp nest!

    I was trying to photograph the flowers, with the street behind out of focus, but my daughter ‘got in the way’. But this mistake looks must better than the shot without her bright umbrella to show how wet it was.
