K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: What’s The Prompt?



new years resolution, photo challenge

welcome to the last prompt of the year 2016!

Did you know that today, Friday, is the very last Friday of the year 2016?

Did you then make the realization that this last Friday is leading into… (wait for it) the last weekend of 2016?

Okay, supposing you knew all I’ve mentioned above, did you also know this Friday represents the very last PROMPT my buddy Dale and I will give in the year 2016?

…of course you did…

With the choice of prompts falling squarely on my shoulders this week, I figured our prompt should absolutely have something to do with the coming New Year, 2017…

What’s the prompt again?

I then got to thinking, why not give the challenge a few more dimensions, a bit more complexity? With that in mind, I decided on the following prompt for your consideration:

snowy egrets, Lake Merritt, Oakland California, time, one-liner wednesday



Three variants of time to consider. You could choose one… or you could choose all and create a work depicting all three concepts? The choice, as it always is with Dale and my prompts, is completely in your hands.

Considering joining us for this last of 2016 romp through a prompt (almost made it rhyme!) It’s not hard to do:

First, create your prompt and be sure to title it something similar to what you see above. Next, copy your freshly minted post’s URL and paste it into the comment section of this coming Monday’s big reveal/post either here on Obzervashunal or at Dale’s site, which you can find right here

Taking that step with do wonders in helping others find your post. Lastly, be sure to use our #CosPhoChal tag in your tag section for your new post and you are done!

It’s been an interesting year I think many of you would agree? I’m happy Dale and I decided to do the ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this year. It’s been a blast with some great entries from  more than a few extremely talented artists along the way.

Here’s hoping 2017 expands the challenge!

    1. …which makes me want to ask: what is the difference between a heron and a crane? I learned from the amazing ‘Planet Earth’ DVD, cranes fly with their necks extended, egrets and herons mostly ‘fold’ their necks in flight. Cool, right? These three birds in the photo actually are neither cranes or herons… they are called ‘snowy egrets’ and I shot them over at Oakland’s Lake Merritt last year.

      1. Ahhhhh yes snowy Egrets. There’s also cattle Egrets as well. I’m getting back into bird watching. My goal is to buy some night vision binoculars and go owl sporting either on Mount Davidson or in Golden gate Park by the bison paddock.

        1. Yeah, man! This year, back in April when I bough my latest camera, the first serious outing I went on was to shoot the owls by the buffalo paddocks! I’ll have to post some of those shots because it was wild. My buddy David let me use his 200-500 mm lens on the new camera and… Wow. Three or so hours of shooting became something very special. I’m thinking nighttime watching will be even better as you may see them in the air? Oh, you’re also right about the egrets. Golden Gate Park starts hopping next month, both plant life and wildlife. I’m still working on getting the same lens my friend lent me in April.

    1. Let’s see… I bought my camera by ten that morning, met up with David and headed over around eleven, but this was back in April. The owls at the buffalo paddock were Great Horned Owls and the nest then had three chicks in it. Funny thing, on the other side of that huge tree was a Red-tailed hawk’s nest being built! Needless to say lots of folks were out with their gear capturing shots of both.

      The other nest not many people outside of the bird watchers knew about was on Strawberry Hill, above and to the right of the waterfall. That was a great spot for photos and watching too. Even my old camera got me some great shots back then.
