Our Canada Theme Pic Challenge: Big and Small
In what would turn out to be one of our most popular Theme Pic Challenges ever, we asked you to share your best “Big and Small” photography. Check out the striking contrasts in scale that these amazingly talented shutterbugs captured on camera!
This month’s “Big and Small” Theme Pic Challenge inspired Diana Gorski of Edmonton, Ab. to send us this magical shot. “One of the most amazing life experiences is the arrival of little feet,” she writes. We happen to agree!
Big and Small Redwoods
Joyce Stolte of Edmonton, Ab. writes: “The giant redwood in California and the small tree growing beside it is quite a contrast in size.” Thanks for sharing, Joyce!
A Family Affair
Cheryl Power of Newfoundland and Labrador was lucky enough to capture this adorable moment between a mother duck and her new (smaller) babies.
Mike Lane of Saanichton, B.C.’s photo perfectly captures September’s “Big and Small” Theme. We know what you’re thinking: that 245 pound pumpkin would make a hell of a jack-o-lantern.
Isabelle Marozzo of Norland, Ont. was able to capture this newly hatched praying mantis on a daisy with her trusted macro lens. Thanks for sharing, Isabelle!
With this understated shot by Sandra Quirion of Kamloops, B.C., we can’t decide which dog is cuter! We’ll compromise and call a tie.
Here’s another awesome photo from Isabelle Marozzo. Lucy the dog sure looks like she’s a lover of nature (and small creatures)!
Here’s something you don’t see every day! Deb Sandau of Red Deer, Ab. captured this amazing shot of a “heart” in the middle of mountains.
The great comedian Steven Wright once said, “The world’s a small place, but I wouldn’t want to paint it.” This photograph by Sean Donnelly of Sarnia, Ont. perfectly captures our planet’s great expanse.
These high trees absolutely tower over the lovely couple in this photo by Noorbanu Mohamedali of Scarborough, Ont.
This month’s “Big and Small” Theme Pic Challenge inspired Kim Goslin of Burns Lake, B.C. to share this breathtaking shot of a mare and foal in a driveway near Takysie Lake.
Beverly Lafortune of Kanata, Ont. writes: “Carcross Dunes are the result of a glacial process that started about 10,000 years ago. The Desert is in Yukon and the sand dunes are ever changing because of the winds. It was a big climb to the top and once there, it dropped off about 50 feet.” It looked like quite the adventure!
Karen Allin of Mississauga, Ont. captured this beautiful photo of a young zebra with its mother at the African Lion Safari in Hamilton. That youngster will definitely be bigger…one day.
Fred Allin of Etobicoke, Ont. writes: “My daughter at the Parliament building in Ottawa. If you look closely she is missing her teeth and the guard is holding some teeth.” Thanks for sharing, Fred!
A Bug’s Life
This tiny guy paid a visit to Sheri Sanders’ backyard in Elkford, B.C. It was a quarter of an inch long and only landed for an instant, but Sheri managed to capture the bug in all its glory. The result is like something out of National Geographic!
Here’s another shot from Sheri Sanders, who really nailed September’s Theme Pic Challenge. This man is absolutely dwarfed by the mountains and waters at at Elk Lakes Provincial Park in British Columbia!
MacDonald Cameron of Bow Island, Ab. writes: “The majestic Rocky Mountains seem to dwarf the Parks Canada red chairs. This was a very cold morning last December, on top of Tunnel Mountain in Banff.” Thanks for sharing, MacDonald!
Robots vs. Humans
Have you ever seen a Transformers movie and thought to yourself, “Just how big are those robots really?” Well, this ingenious shot from Norma Keith of Baltimore, Ont. should give you the answer!
Cathy Gauthier of Magnetawan, Ont. writes: “A small tunnel I travel to get out into that big world as the sun rises. Visiting family in Whitby, this is the way I took my dogs to get out into that filed for their walks a few times a day.” Thanks for sharing, Cathy!
