March 2023 Challenge -- Downward

Recommended Posts

Congratulation on the win Hugh, well deserved.


Now looking at my photographs, I don't have many with a downward theme.

So here come three of them...


Looking downward into the swimming pool:




That funfair ride is going to go downward pretty fast:




And finally, what is soon going to go downward in this photograph, is the rain:



Good luck all.

Looking down on seagrass and coastline, Albany, Western Australia. If you squint you may be able to see our little red inflatable boat on the shore. His name is Patch (...because he's more patch than original material these days).




Aerial shot of launch of oceanographic instrument (yellow) which can be seen diving down into the Perth Canyon, offshore from Western Australia. If you squint at this one you may be able to spot me sitting on the roof of the boat nervously piloting the quadcopter.

YES! I have finally figured out how to post images on the forum again. Something changed about a year ago, and today I sat down and worked out how to make it work. In case this helps anyone else who's struggling:

1. Search Alamy Image Manager for the image you're after.

2. Click on it to get the larger view.

3. Right-click and select "copy image URL"

4. Paste URL into forum dialog box.


I'm on a PC using Chrome as a browser.

I found another couple that could fit the brief (also bump it up)

Another BUMP.  What is in the bird's beak?

Was wondering the same.  Looks likes legs of some unfortunate insect.


I wondered if it was twigs and were maybe stuck in it's beak.
