June Challenge GREEN

Colin Woods

Recommended Posts

Greetings all


After the tie-break finish from the last subject, its me to set the new challenge. With people starting to think beyond the virus, with shops, restaurants starting to open, we look to be having a green light to live again. So, the subject for this month is about as broad as you can get. Green. Anything green, either all green, or green in contrast with the rest of the image. It can even be green for envy, environmentally friendly or green for an untrained beginner. Its up to you to scratch your collective head and interpret green. As ever, the images should come from you Alamy collection. You can post a maximum of three. On the last day of the month I will choose my favourite 8, and the winner has to set the next challenge. If you are new to this, don't be intimidated by setting the challenge - its easy and there are plenty of helpful people here to ask. Looking forward to seeing what turns up.  Here are three from me to get the greenness going

Congrats on the closest of wins! Love this challenge.  I think Kermit the Frog once said, "It ain't easy being green"

Here are my three.

2) The golf greens on Mackinac Island, Michigan 





3) A green field of wheat grass

Green beach chairs, St. Croix, Virgin Islands.



The leaves on my crabapple tree.



I was getting my car serviced when I looked out of the waiting room window, and stepped out for this shot. I saw green for days...

Well done on the win on such a tight finish Colin.

And green is great and very open.


Here come my three entries, all done from my backyard to about 2 km of my home.

Whats behind the green door? ( was there a song in the 50's/60's with this title?)


I see a green door and I want to paint it black?


Jim Lowe 1956

Frankie Vaughan 1957

The Exotic Guitars 1962

Shakin Stevens 1981




edit: I didn't have the Frankie Vaughan one.

Hmm let's play that Indian Love Call album 😎

It's from 1962 not 1969 as Youtube says. (Says my hdd.)

edit 2: Yuck! 🍭
