Brown, Orange & Grey

Keeping to pics from our latest trip for the next few prompts...


This "brown cheese", a special kind of Norwegian goat cheese, and one of these foods people either love or hate, for it's also not your typical kind of chese: originally made form goat whey boiled down until it's a sticky, browned and rather sweet mass, it today also contains cream. The end result is very hard, keeps forever, and is eaten in the thinnest slices, if possible on thin Norwegian flatbread or hardbread, with or without salted butter.

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'!

    White (ish) and a Grey day

    White, from a series of pictures I took to test a lens last week:

    One of the statues at the base of the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens

    A bracket fungus on a tree in the park

    The rest of the shoot (full size) is here:

    And Grey, another lens test - this time a manual 300mm telephoto I was testing to sell on eBay, it started raining as I took this shot and I got a rather nice result:
