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.

WILD - grasses and flowers

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.

Wild Flowers: Weekly Photo Challenges

Again I am up to combining themes… this week We Drink/Pixel adventures is looking for photos on plants or flowers and Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack is looking for wild…

Here is my contribution…


Wild flowers – thistles

Some lovely thistles… can you spot the bee?


Dandelion – a wild weed that grows anywhere

Dandelion ~ Author Unknown ~

There was a dandelion,

With lovely, fluffy hair,

That glistened in the sunshine,

And in the summer air.

And oh! This pretty dandelion

Soon grew old and grey,

And, sad to tell!

Her charming hair,

Blew many miles away.
