About this Group

Go Take A Hike Photography GroupWelcome to all those who like to hit the trail! Short hike, long trek, day hike, nature walk - it's all good. This group is a place to submit your favorite photographs collected along the way - flora or fauna, birds, landscapes, the sky, the trail itself (who doesn't love a good trail photo??) or just interesting and unusual things found as you go.

WEEKLY THEME: From Sunday, June 16th until Saturday, June 22nd, the group theme will be “FOUND IN TREE BARK” - any scene captured within a natural environment where the subject is something found in the bark of a tree. It could be an interesting pattern in the bark itself, or something located in or on tree bark, such as a nut stashed by a woodpecker or a bug, etc. – no pets/domestic/captive animals, people, man-made objects, gardens, yards, marinas, zoos, neighborhoods or built-up areas allowed.


1) NATURAL landscapes and scenes should be the focus of your images! Buildings and other man-made objects are okay, as long as they are a small, integral part of the landscape being represented and are not right up front/focus of the image. Please do not submit images taken in gardens, yards, marinas, zoos, or any built-up areas.

2) People and pets/domestic/captive animals should be represented in the same manner. It's okay if they are in your shot, as long as they are not the main focus of the shot. Wildlife ALWAYS welcome!

3) Images that have been digitally painted or otherwise altered to the point that they do not look like photographs any more will not be accepted in the group. Light touching, texturing, blending, etc. will be allowed as long as the image still holds photographic integrity overall.

4) No images portraying religion, or with religious quotes on the images themselves.

5) There will be a weekly theme posted on Saturdays for the following week (see up top!). Images you submit to the group are not required to follow the weekly theme, but only those that do will be considered for daily features. Featured images may be removed at any time to make room for new ones.

6) One image per day, folks. Let's keep 'em clean and nudity free. As always, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's work!

GROUP MEMBERS - There are some discussions open in the discussion board (where else would they be?!) - please feel free to jump in and participate!
