For fun, dug out some reddish photos.

Canon 7D mki ISO 3200, F3.5, 1/320  Circus/Acrobatic show at a theatre in Beijing, China. There is actually a 7th woman on the back of the bicycle obstructed from view.

RAF Red Arrows do some passes around downtown Vancouver, BC.

The night show at Canada's parliament building in Ottawa. The animals on the lower part of the building are presented the art form of the west coast Indigenous People - Haida nation I am guessing.

Sundown one evening in July 2011.  Cloudy all day, but on that very evening, the sky went red.  In all my years living in SE Michigan, I have never seen the sky ever go totally red and glowing this it did that July evening.

Very eerie sight to see and this picture does not do the actual viewing justice.

Hello ... #TGIF

The theme for this mini challenge: RED IN YOUR STORIES

I do not know how to all, but I'm already very tired of winter, with its cold and gray. I really want spring and bright colors. Therefore, this challenge suggests to devote bright red color in your photos.

The challenge will end on Friday, March 19th, 2021 at 10:00 PDT.

THE RULES

  • The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.
  • You may enter up to three competition images, three entries.
  • Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post only and please remember to change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles.
  • Please, definitely specify state whether your submission is an ENTRY or EXHIBIT.
  • If you do not wish to enter the MC and host the next challenge should you win, please state your submission as "Just for Fun" (or "Exhibition") in the subject line (or in the message text).
  • The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after 3-5 days). The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible.
  • The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.
  • If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge.
  • If the first place person cannot host or does not respond within three days, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.
  • Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera or even smart phone. But, the photo taken in the last 2 weeks and / or the Canon PowerShot will receive additional balls when evaluating. This forum is dedicated to exactly this series of cameras, so I consider such a rule very appropriate.
  • Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.
  • Feel free to comment on other contestants' images.

And the most important rule: HAVE FUN! (and yes, I am sorry for my English)

We could hold a vote...

If no one is in a bum-burning rush to get a decision, and one hasn't been tendered before Saturday morning, why don't we all who are still waiting and checking about daily vote on our three choices.  One of us can tally them formally (they'll be overtly displayed and easily verified) and declare the next host.

Thoughts?

Yes, that would be okay with me. IMHO.
