Really big subject or really small subject, and an extra challenge if they're both in the same shot!

Dignity statue, Chamberlain, South Dakota, USA

Click, great composition. Two locations of people give sense of scale. I've never heard of this monument. I like it.
- January 13, 2019 at 1:23 pm #384578
Very nice, Click! I hope you’re working on a photo book of the Dakotas and Wyoming… You have the material, that’s for sure!
- January 13, 2019 at 9:23 pm #384683
Excellent pic Click. Love the tourist sitting in silent contemplation in the shade admiring the statue. The size of it demands admiration which then invokes a very real sense of the beauty and history of her people.
I googled it and was pleased to discover that it's not sitting isolated in a field somewhere as I first thought. It should be accessible and seen by all.

Delicate Arch in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah, USA

Killer light Click. Love it!

Love that shot, Click!

Beautiful Click! This is on our list of places to visit in the not-too-distant future.

Plan that trip Carefully Leanne, temperatures can be very extreme, I was there once when it over 115 f for two weeks straight.
- January 13, 2019 at 7:06 am #384533
Both images manage to clearly show us the scale of the big objects and the arch lets me appreciate a natural wonder I've never seen “in person”.
- January 13, 2019 at 3:25 pm #384640
Very Nice Click
- January 13, 2019 at 9:28 pm #384684
What a fantastic colour palette Click. It's near impossible to imagine the forces that act over time to sculpt such a thing. Brilliant image!
- January 14, 2019 at 10:52 am #384798
Wow man! This is a superb shot, well done!
- January 18, 2019 at 3:51 pm #385630
Great shot Click. Looks surreal 🙂

Hoverfly on Calendula.
- January 12, 2019 at 8:24 pm #384499
Great catch, Dave. Love the colours.
- January 12, 2019 at 10:19 pm #384505
Hoverfly looks really interesting, not familiar with it. Great image.
- January 13, 2019 at 7:12 am #384534
Those of you who make mages of small insects always amaze me. First, because it's not the kind of thing I tend to be interested in taking photos of and second, I don't think either my camera nor I can get the focus needed to create the image. Thanks for showing me what I probably wouldn't see by myself.
- January 13, 2019 at 9:31 pm #384686
Great shot, great colour Dave. And thanks for letting me know what these things are called. I took a shot of a slightly different but very similar looking insect recently and it was just hovering in mid air so it must be a type of Hoverfly!
- January 15, 2019 at 9:49 am #384976
Thanks all for the comments. 🙂
- January 18, 2019 at 3:54 pm #385633
Great contrast Dave. Well done

Spiders are amazing. This is great, Leanne! Emerald eyes….
- January 13, 2019 at 7:13 am #384535
Definitely a fitting song for your amazing image Leanne. The focus is spot on.
- January 13, 2019 at 1:16 pm #384572
The ladybug is my favorite! What patience you have to capture these excellent shots. I’d be scared that the spider would jump on my camera, and I’d drop it! Lol
- January 13, 2019 at 9:37 pm #384689
…with many a winding road… Love that song, love the pic Leanne!
I can't believe that spider is so small. How the hell did you even see it to take it's picture? Not to mention capture it in such minute detail? Scary to think these guys are all around us unseen 🙁
- January 15, 2019 at 2:02 am #384929
And to answer your question, Graham – I spotted it running across the hood of our vehicle! We were visiting my folks and over a few days we found they were everywhere. I believe it is a jumping spider. I had one take quite a leap off of my arm (I probably jumped as high). Apparently they can come as small as 1 mm. Those ones I would most likely miss!
- January 14, 2019 at 8:15 am #384754
Both pictures are excellent.
- January 14, 2019 at 10:54 am #384800
Nice! Love the spider most!
- January 14, 2019 at 2:53 pm #384842
The spider's drivers license will say “eyes: green.” 🙂
- January 15, 2019 at 2:03 am #384930
LOL! For sure Holly! Thanks Andre and Tobie.
- January 15, 2019 at 9:52 am #384978
Two great shots Leanne. And two thumbs up for the spider pic!
- January 15, 2019 at 7:29 pm #385066
Love the spider Leanne! Way to show that it's a cutie and not scary
- January 18, 2019 at 3:56 pm #385634
Tiny worlds full of giants. Superb Leanne.

This is a fantastic image Anne. It shows me a small part of another life. The brilliant colors in the image strongly contrast the man's serious face.

Something about this shot makes me wish I was there making a simple living like these guys. I like the two in the rear…looks like one guy doesn't want his picture taken while the one behind him smiles happily at the camera.
- January 15, 2019 at 9:54 am #384981
Every aspect of this image works really well. Nicely done Anne.
- January 18, 2019 at 3:57 pm #385636
Looks like portable air bags for motorbikes. Super shot Anne.

Wow, that's amazing!
- January 13, 2019 at 1:20 pm #384575
Now THAT”S a big tree!!! Great shot.
- January 13, 2019 at 3:24 pm #384639
As I remember this is General Sherman and is the largest known single stem tree on planet earth, not the tallest but having the greatest mass. The Tree measures 103 feet/31 metres around, and soars 275 feet/84 metres tall and it’s still growing. Every year it adds enough wood to make another 60-foot/18-metre-tall tree.
- January 13, 2019 at 9:07 pm #384680
Holy crap Batman! Thats one helluva tree. It must weigh a thousand tons! Do you know its approximated age? I only ask because my local newspaper has a story today about some local council wanting to remove a significant Red Gum tree to make way for a development of some sort. The tree is estimated to be 800 years old but the trunk's diameter at the base is only about three times the width of your daughter. Your tree must be thousands of years old?
- January 14, 2019 at 8:47 am #384759
Google Says any where from 2000 to 2800 years.
- January 14, 2019 at 10:59 am #384803
Wow, that's huge!
- January 15, 2019 at 2:05 am #384931
That is so cool! Thanks for sharing that Robert!
- January 15, 2019 at 7:20 pm #385064
Fantastic shot Robert!! I applaud you being able to get the whole tree in one image. It's brings back the feeling of awe I had when I first saw them.
- January 18, 2019 at 4:03 pm #385642
Yep, That's big!
- January 13, 2019 at 3:42 pm #384642
- January 13, 2019 at 9:47 pm #384694
Beautiful lime coloured soft tone in this pic Diane. The critters don't seem to mind each other's company? If this was your back garden I'd be getting onto those Aphids quick smart 🙂
- January 15, 2019 at 3:42 pm #385023
Thanks Graham, the ants ‘farm' the aphids. They were on a dock weed, which had to go at some point anyway.
- January 18, 2019 at 4:06 pm #385643
Lovely colours, Tersha.
- January 14, 2019 at 8:17 am #384755
From big to small …
- January 15, 2019 at 9:19 am #384965
I have a collection of Matrushka dolls – love them. Grandkids do also. Enjoyed seeing yours. What is height of biggest and smallest?
- January 18, 2019 at 4:46 am #385575
11 cm for the “biggest” and 2 cm for the smallest (4,3 to 0,8 inches). It's a small set. Bought them in 1994 in Berlin (the origin seems to be Polish).
But now I have to reassemble all these parts … I will be well occupied for the day ;-))
- January 18, 2019 at 4:09 pm #385644
They look in good condition for 20 odd years old. Lovely, Andre
- January 14, 2019 at 10:57 am #384802
The Dahlias are really nice this summer. The birds were a bit quiet on Saturday so I decided to turn my attention to flowers (i.e. with the 150-600mm lens). I only saw this little critter as I was zooming in during the shoot.
- January 18, 2019 at 4:11 pm #385645
Looks like a small garden growing in the flower. Perhaps the critter is a gardener. 🙂
- January 14, 2019 at 11:08 am #384810
Robert's tree shot reminded me of this (not so good!) image from my bridge camera days (one of Canon's first ever digitals). It's the bottom part of ‘Chapman's Baobab' in Botswana, estimated to have started growing in the days of the Farao's in Egypt (3,000+ years ago).
I could not take it from further away because the idea was to still recognize my wife! 😉
Very interesting: as I was quickly checking the facts about the tree on the ‘net, I've discovered that the tree has fallen! What a shame! More details here if you're interested. This article reckons it's over 5,000 years old. Who knows…
- January 14, 2019 at 12:59 pm #384832

- January 14, 2019 at 9:34 pm #384883
Read the article that you provided the link to Tobie. Incredible that something could survive for so long and grow to such an immense size while living in the middle of a desert! Must have had very deep roots?
- January 15, 2019 at 1:22 am #384917
- January 15, 2019 at 1:57 am #384928
Wow! That is amazing. Great shot, Tobie. I love the part about the ‘tree mail'

Amazing waterfall with such detail in the wall of rock. Had to zoom in but spotted him eventually. I think he's calling the chopper rescue people?
- January 18, 2019 at 4:13 pm #385647
Thanks Graham. I would love to go up there.
- January 15, 2019 at 1:23 am #384918
This is just magic David! Makes one realize how small we are in Nature in general.
- January 18, 2019 at 4:14 pm #385648
Thanks Tobie. We really are very insignificant on this world.
- January 15, 2019 at 7:26 am #384956
Nature is truly amazing and you do it justice (as did many others in this challenge).
- January 18, 2019 at 4:16 pm #385649
Cheers Bobbie. Don't think there would be many photographers if there was no nature.
- January 15, 2019 at 3:37 pm #385020
Incredible David, took me ages to find him! Great shot
- January 18, 2019 at 4:18 pm #385650
Thanks Tersha. We had walked from the falls just as he was starting the climb.
- January 14, 2019 at 1:04 pm #384834
Great Photo David, finally did spot him, spoiler its the only bit of red in the photo.
- January 18, 2019 at 4:18 pm #385651
Thanks Robert. Red is the colour.

That's awesome, Bobbie! Love the title. In my mind, the birds and the hippos are both saying it! 🙂
- January 15, 2019 at 3:36 pm #385019
Great shot Bobbie, love the title! 🙂
- January 16, 2019 at 12:19 pm #385229
Thanks so much for your comments Kent and Diane

Maybe the Hippos were creeping up on the birds. Great shot Bobbie

Phenomenal image Diane. You shoot so precisely, both technically and artistically, and constantly amaze me by the new worlds you help me see.

Truly! Thanks for the comment Tobie.

It was very thoughtful of them to wear bright colors so we could see them easily 🙂
Where are these colorful strata?

The Badlands in western South Dakota. My wife and I took a road trip out there to take pictures. It rained the entire time… a lot. This is one of two keepers that I shot out of 4 days of trying.
- January 17, 2019 at 9:43 am #385393
What a beautiful spot. I think the dramatic storm clouds fit the scene much better than a blue sky would have.
- January 17, 2019 at 9:56 am #385400
- January 17, 2019 at 1:44 pm #385433
Stirs a not so fond memory though, I was out here hiking in 2015 with my Wife and 2 of the kids and we found a Body, ended up being a missing hiker from Nebraska.
- January 18, 2019 at 11:47 am #385612
Oh wow! I can't imagine that! It is a pretty desolate place- even with the tourist traffic.
- January 18, 2019 at 4:29 pm #385656
Cool Shot Kent. Its hard to imagine how big these places are.

Defo wont fit on the tractor, not with them feet. Good one Dave
- January 21, 2019 at 11:24 am #386137
Thanks David. This shot taken at a tulip festival at a place called Wooden Shoe Farm. There was a line about 10 people deep waiting to get their picture taken standing in these big shoes. Was probably like that all day long. 🙂
