Weekly Photography Assignment: Nature Reclaiming

Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our two favourites to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 92: Nature Reclaiming

Our theme this week is Nature Reclaiming. Nature only needs the smallest opportunity to take back what it rightfully owns, be it a dandelion breaking through concrete or what was once industrialised land returning to woodland. Get out and show us where nature has prevailed.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Dramatic Skies. You can view all of the entries here.

Photo by James O’Neilll

This is a brilliant image by James which shows a group of Whooper Swans on a lake beneath some dramatic skies. These swans migrate huge distances and will often encounter very dramatic weather along the way; the sky in this images helps to tell their story. A very dramatic image, well done!
