It's probably been at least a decade since we did this...
 
~2 weeks (mid wk).  Photos taken post start. No image limit  Anyone suggests a new topic.  [Better format of challenge?]

Starter Challenge:  Colours in nature.

Starter Challenge:  Colours in nature.

Dammit, I took the perfect photo for that two days ago.  There was a particularly bright (double, as it happens) rainbow and I was trying to make sense of why there was a green band inside the blue one, which wasn't a feature of rainbows that I'd noticed before.

Needless to say, it wasn't present in the recorded image.  I assume that this was due to my wonky cone cells doing the thing that causes people with non-wonky cone cells to perceive a purple band inside the blue, and getting it hilariously wrong.

Any limit to entries? I was walking along this evening, it occurred to me that autumn colours at night had an interesting quality, pixel phone made a decent fist out of it

Almost looks like there's a massive storm on the way...

Any limit to entries? ...

I guess no limit as such - probably one selected of a particular image - subject...

My effort from today's ride around Wolvercote/Oxford...

I realise challenge 1 'colours in nature' ('any colours natural or not... in nature' ) can cover a few options.   ;)  Some of these were supposed to be about certain 'tension' of manmade colour in/wrt natural colour, or something like that...  ;D

Feel free to suggest a better / different format..

I think it is a good idea, I just haven't been out taking photos...
It is simpler than it looks.

Just wondering if perhaps the right 'tweak' might make it more doable/ interesting in general.

Autumn, yes. Colours? You'll have to look closely.

I've dusted off all those old bottles and set them up straight

Nice.

I was passing a pile of leaf fall a couple of days back and was drawn by the wonderful contrast of colours and variety of shapes.  I took a picture to use as wallpaper on my PC.

As I am utterly shite at sorting out posting pics here I apologise for baiting the hook so to speak but if anybody would like to post it for me I can send it to you.

Apologies for my lack of photo posting skills.

Polar Bear's autumn leaves picture.

@slope, how did you do the clickable link to Flickr? I normally just use Dropbox links here, but your method allows a link to a larger version, which is obviously useful in a photo thread. Edit - got it, just use the full BBcode link. I tried that in preview and couldn't make it work. Should have just gone ahead and posted!

The detail is worth seeing :thumbsup:

Begging the pardon of andyoxen, this being mostly his photo:


Because I love Chompsky's colouring, and he is one of nature's creatures, but he never goes outdoors.

Nice.  For the main challenge, I reckon we can probably say any photos taken after 1 Dec 23...  ;)
