Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Tiny...Tracts of Land"

: Take a small-scale landscape where detail and intimacy are key. No wide-angle stunners. The primary subject is suggested to be within arms reach, but not required. Difficulty: No people.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:

The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Stats can be found here.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

Stump Life

There must be countless organisms that lived and died their whole lives, without ever leaving this stump.

When you're a flying bug, it doesn't matter if the landscape is horizontal or vertical.

Small Waterfall

Tiny stream only a few inches across. At the point where it falls off the hillside it's only about 12-18 inches across.

Graveyard Chipmunk

S/he was pretty content sitting up on the rock wall that divided sections of an old graveyard.

The stone reads
APRIL Ye 24".

The rest of the inscription is buried or broken off, but it looks like the lower right says "5th". Possibly a child who passed away in his/her 5th year.

Don't know if this qualifies under the rules, but it is a small (model) of land. For those wondering, it is a cake with geologic structure, fold and faults.
