MOOSE at Northwest Trek, Washington.

This week the topic is Letters M or N.  This week I’m starting an alphabet series.  I’m doing two letters each week.  So you can choose just one of the  letters or use both letters. You can be creative with this topic.  I am eager to  see what everyone comes up with regarding this topic.   I just want you to have some fun with your photography.

Feel free to dig around in your archives for photos if you don’t have anything new you can photograph.

Upcoming Topics

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  For a great black and white photo look for contrast or highly textured subjects to photograph.

  • Letters O or P
  • Letters Q or R
  • Letters S or T
  • Letters U or V
  • Letters W or X
  • Letters Y or Z

This challenge accepts the following types of photography:

  • Sepia tones (browns)
  • Selective color with the majority of the photo being in black and white

I hope you have FUN a lot of fun with this challenge.

  1. I hate to tell you this, but those are elk, not moose. 😉 I really want to go to Northwest Trek one of these days, but so far I never get past looking at their website. What focal length were you using when you were there?


    • I was there so long ago, that I used my 70-300m. I took their tour for photographers. It is a van that they drive through early in the morning. It was a cold foggy morning and not a lot of animals were out, but it was beautiful.


      • Thanks for the info. I just got a 55-200 lens for my APS-C sensor camera, which is roughly equivalent to a 70-300 full frame, so it looks like I’d be fine. I was eyeing the photographer’s tour as the way to go also.


  2. I love your little contests. I have to jump in some time. I’m a very amateur photographer, if I can even call it that, but want to learn as I go. Don’t have access to photoshop right now and use GIMP, but again, have so much to learn!


      • Yesterday I actually brought a raw image in for the first time and gimp turned into a completely different program that I have to sit with and figure out. I’m guessing more like photoshop. It’s always compared except that it’s free and I know photoshop is the best. I have to learn to edit raw images. Right now I don’t. and I hope to play along soon too!!!


        • RAW photos are so fun to edit. You can really make some great changes. Just be patient with yourself. You’ll get the hang of it and will figure out what you like or don’t like. You will soon develop your own style of editing and art.


          • I shot in the raw once and for some reason when I transferred the photos over something happened. So, I haven’t done it since then. I have to try it again. I’ll do it when the pictures don’t totally matter. Thank you for the tip!!!!


  3. I thought I might have to miss this week as the connection to my Ribbet programme for B/W had not been working for a week with Flickr. I found the culprit, it was my Chrome and did a new upload so everything OK. Love your elk/moose – I thought they were the same animal being a European Brit. My husband saw many in Sweden on business, silly but wonderful animals.


    • I took the elk out and put in a moose. I just grabbed the wrong photo. I’ll use the elk later. 😀 Glad you figured our your problem.


  4. I was going to mention that those are elk, but since moose ARE elk, just very big ones, it’s just a matter of bulk and size of those big antlers. I think you do have moose out there, though. There are moose all over the north, including Canada … and Sweden and Norway, which means there must have been a way to cross it in some earlier time.

    I love the elk. They are the most elegant of all our antlered friends. And big, too!


    • I switched out the elk and added a moose photo. I did put in the wrong photo. Thanks for catching it. Elk with their antlers do seem elegant and impressive.
