Welcome to the mid October Challenge! Are you in the depths of fall leaves and Halloween spooks? Or, are you looking for signs of spring to come? My desert home is just starting to cool off and bring the temperatures out of the 90's and into the high 70's. It's my favorite time to get outside with my camera. Cool at night, and warm during the day. Whatever your weather, I hope you'll celebrate it with me in my challenge.
The challenge is to take a photo looking up or looking down and scrap it. Perhaps it's your feet in a puddle, or the sun peeking between the golden leaves of autumn. Look up and down and snap a photo or a few, then scrap. For these photos, I was looking up at the climbers. I like how high up they look because of the perspective of looking up. It makes their climbing accomplishment seem larger. Your photo does not require people. Mine just happened to have people.

But to be honest I expected something about Halloween.

I thought about it. But I also like to do the unexpected sometimes! I hope you aren't disappointed. I love that you took the photos special for my challenge. Thanks for playing!

Fun!

I haven't done a challenge or anything for a gallery for a long time.

But, just happened to catch this challenge, and I think I'm gonna try.

How do I get the buttons, like I have two above for Project Scrap and Champion? I did the Masters Scrap, but can't remember how to get the button?

I came across this strutting Peacock on my favorite mountain bike trail called Peacock Paradise. I have only heard them before and not seen them ever. I just had to stop and take a pic.
