Aleatoric Forms: Open Subjects from Abstract Mediums
Challenge has finished
Submit any captures that are of abstract incidental medium(not controlled) of shapes and forms we can identify as a living subject, place, thing or spirit. Examples include clouds that resemble a car, water turbulance that resembles a hat, smoke that resembles a dog, fire that resembles a vampire, etc. Unlike previous challenges "In the Moment of Chance" any entries that are outside of the guidelines will be disqualified. The guidelines are enumerated as follows: 1. You cannot control the subject in anyway and thereby the observation must be entirely incidental. 2. The subject must be of an abstract and dynamic medium, like a liquid, gas or fire. 3. Captures cannot be delayed unless proper exposure requires it in the case of IR and UV photography. The subject must appear on the capture as it does to the natural eye unless the capture is outside the visible spectrum. 4. No photo mockups or fake photos. This severely discourages other people from submitting authentic photos.

Lenticular clouds, often looking all the world like flying saucers, may form as moist air flows over a mountain range. Here, lenticulars have formed on the downwind side of Colorado's Front Range, near Boulder.
