Challenge one - colour challenge. Black Diamond is an old coal site that is distinctive for the not quite blue, not quite green colour of the water. Pick a colour somewhere between blue and green and make it a feature.

CHALLENGE TWO QUOTE- Birds of a feather flock together. There is a family of emus who can often be seen on the side of the road. Get creative with this one... you don't have to use the quote; you could include a bird, or a feather or something about being together.

CHALLENGE THREE - technique. Just add water. It is amazing what a difference the autumn rain makes to the look of the countryside. Add water to create change... flick it over your distress inks, create a wash with some paint or go crazy with your watercolours.

CHALLENGE FOUR - Embrace imperfection. My favourite shot from the drive was the one of the dairy heard through the blurry grass on the side of the road. Use something damaged or imperfect on your creation... either deliberately damaged or distressed, a blurred photo, or think of a creative way to use something that would otherwise be discarded.

CHALLENGE FIVE - card... make a card that has a strong focal image such as a tree silhouetted against a quieter background. Be creative and go where you like with this one.

I know what you are saying Toni, I have pics on the desk but been shuffling them for days now Rolling Eyes
Keep getting called away and don't get back for a few days and then just sit and up again.
