Weekly Photography Assignment: Summer

Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite 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 135: Summer

Our theme this week is Summer. At this time of year there are many wonderful spectacles to photograph throughout the natural world. This week, we want you to look for summer species, summer scenes and show us what this season means to you!

Last Week’s Favourite

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

This week’s winning photo is by Hauk Tamás. Hauk has used a long exposure to blur the river as it flows through this wooded valley. This effect not only shows the motion of the water but also adds to the landscape’s sense of mystery. Great photo Hauk!
