I’ve not been feeling very well for the last few days – an extra special cough and respiratory infection has left me confined to barracks. Ive been looking through some of the latest #GuruShots challenges and they don’t particularly inspire. However, there is one challenge which I’ve been able to dig out a few relevant images to submit and it’s called, as the title clearly states, ‘Simply Orange’.
There are 7 days left before the challenge ends. As ever, the quality and skill displayed in the top photos is incredible. There some extraordinarily beautiful photographs of flowers in particular – well worth a peruse.
The images I’ve submitted are as follows – from left to right:
- My fireglow Duesenberg Double Cat guitar (I also submitted this image in the ‘Musical Instruments’ challenge)
- A Tiger
- A snapshot of my commute one early morning in January 2018
- Koi Carp
None of the images above will rival those in the top half of the challenge but I should hopefully gain a few more Guru points! :-)
These are the widest range of subjects I think I’ve submitted so far in any one challenge and for that reason, I’m going to be really interested to see which type of image is the most popular. I don’t think I’ll have any images to swap out for this one so the next point (in 7 days or so) will be the results! I’ve gained a few more votes since I took the above screen shot and have reached the Popular level – I’m not going to be close to Elite / Premier but I’ll keep voting to maximize my exposure and just wait and see what happens.

Update: So, I’ve found some relevant images for swaps! Seems like a lot of places I’ve visited actually have orange coloured dirt tracks so in many ways, I was spoiled for choice. The two images I swapped out were the tiger (which I do like but the quality wasn’t great) and the sunrise photograph taken during my morning commute. The images I’ve uploaded as (on left) a dirt track at Lake Tonle Sap, near Siem Reap, Cambodia, and (on right) the Red Rock Church in the outskirts of Sedona, Arizona, US. There are still 5 days to go before the challenge closes, so let’s see what happens ….
Update: I made another swap: I removed the Cambodian dirt track photograph for the Llama image (also included in another challenge called ‘Start with L’. It seemed like a popular swap as the Llama achieved 153 votes which was a lot more than the other image.
Anyways, I managed an Elite level when the challenge closed. Hurrah for me! ;-)
