Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge #29: Fall Colors

This week’s photo challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to show us your best photo of “Fall Colors”. Don’t forget we ENCOURAGE you to shoot the challenge during the week that it is assigned and “out of the box” thinking is always encouraged.

Deadline will be Tuesday, October 19th. so that gives you two whole weekends to get out there and capture fall. Rules and regulations will be posted at the end of this post and don’t forget to put your name on your entries.

***Also just a heads up we will most likely be doing a Halloween challenge after this one so you might want to hold off on the Halloween themed photos for now***

Here are a few photo from our photo archives to get you thinking:

Olympic College students Tessie Gamblin, of Belfair and Lorie Huff of Port Orchard, share an umbrella on a very wet day. They are framed by the fall maple leaves on campus. The Bremerton area had a record 6.52 inches of rain. (LARRY STEAGALL |  KITSAP SUN)

In a scene that looks like and East Coast Fall. The trees in front of Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church in Port Gamble are a palate of fall colors, as a couple walks by on Tuesday. The church was built in 1870. The Church is modeled after The Congregational Church in East Machias, Maine. (LARRY STEAGALL |  KITSAP SUN)

The trees at historic Port Gamble are beginning to turn into the splendor of fall, as a couple walks up the hill to the Buena Vista Cemetery Monday.

***To recap: Every week we will post a new photography “challenge” to help build on all of our current photography skills and to encourage everyone to get out and get shooting (cameras not guns). While we encourage you to shoot the challenge in the week that it is assigned, we will however accept entries taken prior to the challenge assignment date.

When you’ve got your favorite shot, login to the Kitsap Sun Your Media Site (if you don’t already have a login, you can quickly set it one up) or click the “Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Entries” button over there on the right side of the page and upload your image to the Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Channel (the channels run along the left hand side of the page, again if you can’t seem to get it into the channel just upload it normally and send me an email and we’ll move it).

One thought on “Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge #29: Fall Colors

  1. Guys, Have you looked outside lately? The leaves are turing rather late this year. Not a whole lot of good color yet on the bigger trees. Usually I am already raking up the cherry tree leaves in my yard by now, but not this year.

    I will submit one that was taken last year (I know does not meet the encouraged to be taken in the same week part. But it is just so dang cool).
