Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Distant

This week’s challenge is distant! This week we’re challenging you to take a photo of something far away, like these birds flying in front of the sun, photographed from nearly a mile away using a telephoto zoom lens. Head outside and see what you can find off in the distance!

On Wednesday, April 3rd (at 2pm EST, so be sure to submit your entries before that time, even at 1:59pm!) we’ll choose 1 judge’s choice winner, 5 runner ups, and 1 audience choice winner & share their entries here on LetsBeWild.com, announcing the winners by the following day! Send your friends to this page to leave a comment-vote for your entry to win the audience choice award!

Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter by signing up on the right sidebar, so that you can keep updated about the challenge winners and our upcoming challenges!

Here are the quick & easy Challenge rules – please read them carefully so that you can be entered in the running to win!

  • To enter the challenge, create a new blog entry titled “Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Distant” and Copy and Paste the html code in the box below into your blog entry (you’ll need to click the code tab when pasting it into your blog) to let your followers know that you’re participating in the Photo Challenge so that they can join in the fun too.
  • Take one or more photos of something outdoors that fits the challenge theme of Reflections! Watermarks and signatures are fine, but shouldn’t cover the entire image. Large images are the best kind and while their are no mandatory size requirements, thumbnail sized photos just can’t show off your talent the way a nice big image like the one you see above can.
  • The Audience Choice Winner will be decided based upon which entry below receives the most comments on this page – tell your friends and family to come and reply with a comment below your entry here on LetsBeWild.com! Everyone can vote for as many entries as they like.
  • Comment on this page with the URL to your blog entry! After 7 days, we will announce the 1st Place Winner, Audience Choice Winner, and 5 Honorable Mention Winners, all of whom will have their winning shots with a link to their blog featured here on LetsBeWild.com
  • Be sure to visit the blogs of other people entering the Weekly Challenge & leave them some comment love too!
  • Both professionals and amateur photographers are welcome to participate, and both stand an equally good chance of winning!

      Nice photos, as always! Especially like Kamehameha’s Compound, the Grand Tetons for distance, but the colors in the photo of the small bridge off in the distance really caught my eye.

      The palm trees (“Near and far”) and the Union Valley Reservoir are magnificent shots. My favorite is the little red bridge. Stunning light, reflections and color! That one deserves an award!

    I just love the colours in this distant photo! It was so bright my camera struggled to capture it, or maybe it was that it was a new camera and I was desperately learning how to use it. Here’s my entry… http://wp.me/p2PqVo-cS
