2012 Photography Challenge- Water!

Oregon coast

Our theme this week for the Photography Challenge is water.  My husband and I just returned for a vacation on the west coast, driving along the coastal highway from San Francisco to Seattle.  I took at least 500 photos on this trip and over half of them were of the ocean.  So, let just say I had plenty to choose from!  This particular photo was taken just behind our hotel along the coast of Oregon in Yachats.

The hotel sat right along the shoreline and we spent hours walking along the rocks, taking photos and enjoying the beautiful weather.  The tide was coming in and the water splashed huge geysers against the rocks as it slowly moved in.

So how did you do?

Email your water submissions to me!  Check out the Submission Guidelines.  I will post your photos here along with any information that you would like to include.  If you have a website, feel free to add a link to your site!  I will be taking water submissions all week!  Feel free to send your original photo also!

Our theme for next week is “Signs”.  See the information at the bottom of the post for details!

This Week’s Submissions:

My water challenge photos are fun memories with water. 1st is the Water Wheel in the park at Elk City, Oklahoma. 2nd is the girls dipping their toes in the Ole Fishing Hole Weatherford, Oklahoma. 3rd is my grandson’s 8th birthday at the Weatherford Splash Pad. Picmonkey helped me to add text and frames…LOVE Picmonkey.~ Brenda Williams, Weatherford, OK- Cats, Kids and Crafts

I love taking pictures of water and have so many I didn’t know which to choose.  Here are three that I randomly decided upon.  The first one is of Abby watching us fish at Lake Weiss, AL.  The next is Scott with his feet in the Gulf of Mexico waters.  The last picture is of the wonderful little babbling brook we had just outside our cabin last year in Ellijay, GA.~ Debi- Lithia Springs, GA

This is Prosser Lake in Truckee, CA. We were there visiting family last week. This is my 4 yr old daughter paddling our kayak!  This is the Truckee River as we walked across. ~Kim 

This is a brown pelican at Almaden Lake in San Jose, CA. I was surprised to see these pelicans at the lake, I had only ever seen them at the ocean before! ~Christine –http://angelstitchembroidery.blogspot.com

Next Week’s Theme- Signs

Have any photos of cool looking signs?  I know that I tend to take photos of occasional signs that make me laugh, or vintage signs that make me smile.  Since signs are everywhere, you have much to choose from.  Look around and see what there is to offer and take an artistic photo of a sign that speaks to you.  Or maybe just one that really needs it’s photo taken.

It’s all in the translation.  Know what I mean?  Need a few ideas?

See you back next week!
