[sticky post] What is Photo-Scavenger All About?

Everyone is welcome.

The idea is simple: we post a theme every week, and members respond with a photo or two that they feel captures that theme. We hope it will be a great way to share great photos and unique views.

The weekly challenges are now tagged by 'year and prompt' so all the prompts for this year, 2017, can be found by clicking on '2017prompt' in the tags list, so it should be fairly easy to find them and catch up at any time.
The Rules:

  • Our goal is one or two photos per post; but if you do post more than one or two, please be kind and cut. Photo size should not overflow the page :)

  • Posts should be tagged with that week's theme/prompt and with photographer's username. The tag for the prompt will already be in the tags list - it is added when the prompt is posted.

  • Only your own photography, please.

  • We want this site to be friendly. Questionable photos will be deleted at moderator's discretion, as will extremely rude or unpleasant comments.

  • Membership will not be accepted for journals that do not have any posts or other signs that they are 'real'!

    Challenge Week 3: Moving

    Since curiouswombat is moving house and moved in today, what could be a more fitting prompt than moving?

    Sky - Turquoise sky

    Seen VERY briefly today - really not sure of the cause, but I was watching the sky more than usual because of this prompt, and managed to get a picture before it went all grey.

    Sky

    I have a lot of photos of the sky and my first thought was to pick one of the pictures of nacreous clouds I took back in 2016, but on checking I realised I posted one of the best for the 'Tree' prompt.

    In addition, I posted one of my best sunrises in response to the 'light' prompt.

    So I went looking again and instead of a sunrise I found a dramatic cloud formation over Tynemouth:


    And a totally different sky in an unusual black and white mosaic at the entrance to Whitley Bay Metro Station:

    Challenge Week 2: Sky

    Eeep, I'm terribly sorry, I completely forgot to post the weekly prompt! (I can't believe it's Thursday already, too.)
    Let's stay with the weather-related prompts and have sky for this week, one of my forever favourite photo subjects. You're welcome to combine it with last week's prompt!

    Wind

    You can see which is the prevailing wind direction at the top of the Baldwin valley -

    Wind

    Both of these are old photos.

    The first was taken in Bude, where I used to live. It is on the Atlantic coast, and because of the prevailing winds, there are lots of waves .. and therefore lots of surfing.

    This second one was taken in California when I was on a day trip to Yosemite.

    Wind-whipped waves at the mouth of the river last month, with the local lifeboat heading for home.

    2018 Challenge Week 1 - Wind

    Happy New Year to you all!

    I'm taking over for the challenge prompts for January. As we were kind of blown into the new year by a nice, decent storm, the kind that seems to blow all dust and debris away and leave everything new and pristine, I'm giving you wind as the first prompt for the year.
