So it’s the second day of the Daily Create Seven Day Challenge, another photo assignment to take a photo of a natural scene without any human artifacts. It should make you think about how big or small natural areas are… and also, a question of even natural looking areas, aren’t they affected by human activity?

Today we photos from 31 participants, down a few from yesterday….

Again we had a good showing and attempts at isolating parts of our worlds that do not explicitly show signs of human imprints. My favorites included:

Bee Couple
UMW studen Chanda capture this stunning interplay of two bees on an (?echinacea) flower.

TDC186: Troll vs. Unicorns
Melanie’s “Trolls vs Unicorns” really flips the assignment inside out, its not pure nature, but again, not impacted by humans.

Ashely’s solitary tree speaks to me, isolation, determination, separation, yeah.

Andy must have gotten down on his belly to take this low angle shot, and it works to look like a mountain range.

I was excited to see my friend Shelley join in, but was wondering where there were bears in Norfolk, VA, but she explained she was working on her Photoshop skills. Darn good if you ask me.

As Malwyn shows, you cannot go wrong with mimic of forms….

I like the idea here if merging two photos in the way that makes the look like prints on a table

Darren creates a kind of surreal spooky place with the soft focs and low angle. A great photo IMHO.

Okay, we lost a few people from Day 1… are you in this #4week?

      1. I set them to moderate this morning trying to reset whatever was wrong, and I guess when I set them to safe it didn’t take. Its just strange, because previous images were grouped according to the tags just fine.
