This week’s challenge is the color pink. It just so happens that one of our pink rhodies, Mary Belle, is blooming…
Mel’s nose is mostly black but he does have a small patch of pink inside his left right nostril. He wasn’t too happy about the camera being stuck in his face….
It’s the middle of October and the strawberries are still going strong!
Frogs! Spring’s definitely here when the tadpoles start hatching and you see the occasional frog in the mud puddle, despite this decidedly spring-like weather that seems to be plaguing Oregon and Washington lately.
I didn’t just see one frog, but two!
This one kept insisting on climbing up on my thumb, so I let it have its way…
A new idea from Ed for those of us who are looking for another challenge to shoot. It’s a great idea, Ed! I’m looking forward to seeing what everybody as posted pictures of.
This week’s assignment as been fun and a bit, well, challenging! It’s all in getting your subject to hold still for more than ten seconds…
This week’s challange is a little bit different than the previous ones we’ve been having. For this week, we were supposed to pick two subjects from past challanges and reshoot them, either in black and white, or edit them and change the color to black and white after they’ve been taken.
Trace posing so beautifully for the camera (I think he loves his job as a model….) This is from the pets challenge, which I believe was the very first Sunday Stills Challenge ever issued! Shot in black and white.
Shot in black and white. Do you consider your non-working horse a pet? I do, so I figured Nick would fit into the pet category.
Shot in black and white. Finally, our Siamese kitten/yearling, Gretchen.
Shot in black and white. Black cherry from last week’s macros of flowers challenge.
Pale pink/white Rhododendron. And finally, my favorite flower shot of the week! Shot in black and white.
This week’s challenge was to shoot some macros of whatever is starting to bloom for the folks who don’t have much green and no flowers yet. This is the perfect challenge for this week, almost everything has greened up and is flowering like crazy. I took so many pictures that I had a hard time narrowing it down to a select twelve or thirteen to post!
I almost didn’t have any pictures for this week’s challenge, but thanks to a “spring” thawing that melted most of the remaining snow off the ground and roof of the shop, creating little river of water, I now have pictures!
I had so many favorite close-ups, it was hard to choose, but I finally settled on the barb wire pics I took the other day. The one above sort of looks like it has hair on it, the frost is so long.
This one was in a more protected area, so not as much frost.
This picture is my top ten favorites that I’ve ever took. I took this in mid June before we cut hay up in field above the horse barn.
Another favorite from that evening. I love the way the all the colors came together in this one…
