BLACK’s Epic Adventure Photography Contest

Thanks to my new blog friends over at Travel Stained for tagging and inviting me to join in the Black’s Epic Adventure Photo Contest. Black’s is a shop from the UK that is sponsoring amateur photographers to submit photos in 4 different categories WILD, FAST, EPIC and PANORAMIC. There are prizes to be won including vouchers to use for travel. Who could pass up a free trip?

Without further ado here are my submissions.

FAST – this bird flew in fast as it was munching on various bugs one summer evening. The movement of the grasses and wheat are fast, but give the picture texture -don’t you think?

WILD – I love the colour in this photo. How is it wild? Well the wild flowers, grasses and 2 insects are all wild of course. Look carefully one of the critters are camouflaged.

EPIC – This could also be wild I suppose. I thought it would better fit epic since the grand scale of nature is taking over man-made structures at Angkor Wat , Cambodia which, is pretty EPIC.

EPIC - nature's power is epic as it reclaims man made structures

PANORAMIC – Views along the Great Wall of China. On clear days the wall snaking along the mountain ridges goes on as far as the eye can see.

Hope you enjoyed my collection. Stay tuned for more posts and adventures.
