Topics I've Started

2019 Nov-Dec Challenge - Colors!

15 November 2019 - 10:16 AM

Since we are already into November and December is right around the corner, I will merge the two Months in regards to the Challenge.


This will allow everyone to post images that encompass a broad stroke from both months.


The Challenge is for COLORS!

Lots of COLORS.

Autumn COLORS.


Christmas COLORS!


The subject doesn't matter, the colors do! If it is bright, loud and colorful .... it is COLORS and it belongs posted here.




1) Any Camera

2) Try to keep the images to the ones taken in the last two months.

3) Post as many times as you like.

4) Have fun, as always!


An example of loud colors, just to get us started......

Friend Jason suggested looking for Deer this morning at the local cemetery.  Due to the proximity to the green belt, and holes in the perimeter fence, there is a ton of wildlife that roams the place.


We were looking for the big buck, but unfortunately, didn't make an appearance this morning.

Fascinating creatures! They walked about us, maybe 20 feet away, not quite like we were invisible but they didn't seem to really care much. I think there was a group of 6, should have counted.

Another Sparrow image with the D5 300 1.4TC combo +CP.


Posting these just to show how crisp the images are with the TC.

Juvi Starling

This little guy didn't look like he was doing too well hobbling along the pathway.  A late bloomer, a little surprising this late in the season.

My guess is it is a Starling.
