Weekly Photo Challenge: Mediterranean Afterglow

Mediterranean Afterglow

This week’s challenge is all about harmony, and I instantly thought of my last day at sea. The cloudy skies, the colors, the chill of the open Mediterranean…it all came together for an unusual – but utterly gorgeous – moment in my adventure. A larger version is viewable here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Plankton Rainbow

Plankton Rainbow

This week’s challenge is all about forces of nature, so I thought I’d post something about light and its effects of animals. Here’s another Exploratorium exhibit. Basically, zooplankton can distinguish different colors of light. In the ocean, it helps them swim toward the surface, where their food is located. Blue and green lights shine deeper in the water than the other colors, hence why the plankton are attracted to these ones; they think the sun is shining through the water, and that they’re entering the photic zone for a meal. Large version available here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow, Or: Autumn Is Late

Autumn Is Late

This week’s photo challenge calls for something yellow, so I had to go a little further into my photo folder. This was one of the first test shots I took with the Nikon D3300. I’m not crazy about the subject matter, but the colors turned out great!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist, Or: Unlit Candle

Unlit Candle

This week’s challenge is all about minimalism, something which my photo collection surprisingly lacks. Until I find something better, here’s a candle currently decorating my entry hall.
