April Photo Challenge

Thanks again to those who voted for me, and also to Taly for letting me have a go as this month's theme-meister even though we tied



Earth Day



April 22 is Earth Day, the perfect time of year to reflect on the environment. This can include anything from wildlife, to green technologies, to recycling, or even destruction, pollution, etc.










As usual, these rules apply:

- Only two photos per person
- Please don't use photos that you're already posted around the site
- Voting usually starts around the 27th
- Anyone can vote, even those that didn't enter a photo.

Re: April Photo Challenge

I really like this theme, BookStop - I've got a lot of ideas already! Something tells me this contest is going to be a good one.

(Oddly enough, the theme I'd had in mind was going to be "green", including the environmental side, so this works out rather well!)

Or something like this, taken with an old phone (I like to show the creatures in our environment-puts things in perspective)

Re: April Photo Challenge

Ooh... I've just come back from a wander (as the sun was actually shining!) and took some pics to test my new camera. This one kinda fits:

Re: April Photo Challenge

Ok, it's taken a while to get the picture right, but here is my first entry:



It's not exactly my usual type of picture, but I thought it summed up the theme quite well - the small things that people can do to help the environment, like planting a seed.

Great pictures already, Mouse and AE!

Ooh nice, Talysia. I didn't even think about taking any pics of my seedlings. And I've got enough of them!

Re: April Photo Challenge

Wow - yours are much better, though, Cul!

Here's my second entry, taken this afternoon. A wildlife shot from me this time.

Re: April Photo Challenge

Cripes, Cul - those are fantastic!

Here's my first entry o' the month - I went out toward our closest windmill to get a photo of the sunset, but my camera died while i was dorking around with the sun still up. Couldn't look at it precisely because, you know, sun and all, so I didn't realize until I loaded on the pc that the sun was perfectly behind this windmill - looks kind of like a candle, huh?
