    The new subject for this challenge is "Bird view" I like to see pics from above : use buildings, airplanes, hot air balloons, kite's, pole's, whatever...

    But... safety first !!!

    You will have two weeks to enter your image till Midnight on Sunday the 5th of August (Amsterdam time).

    Good Luck !! :2thumbs:

    Thanks Steve, the colour really blew me away... this has been pp'd but only to get the colour the way I saw it.

    LOL, haven't had the kites up for years. I should sell them and change my nickname.

    This is a stretch... but... this is a bird's eye (in this case a Redwing Blackbird's) view of mobbing a crow...

    mmm, only 4 participants to choose from...

    I think Nikki's picture is a winner because she has the highest viewpoint of all...

    Only on Flickr you can see the tiny houses in the valley...

    Congrats and succes with your new subject !!
