Cut to the hot hot summer of 2012. We could see it coming in our rearview mirror: this bruise blooming, darkening the sky as it gained speed and intensity. It turned bright sunshine into strange green light as we raced down the highway in a bid to outrun a Canadian prairie thunderstorm.

In a post created specifically for this challenge, post a photograph that evokes FORESHADOW to you.

krista This challenge offers some fun opportunities to play — not only with the subject of your photo, but with light, color, and contrast to evoke foreshadow. Perhaps foreshadow is an open bottle of red wine and two wine glasses. Maybe it’s a diamond ring in small velvet box. Maybe it’s a flower bud about to burst into bloom, or the first leaf that turns color on your oak tree. What does foreshadow mean to you? Looking forward to seeing the creative ways in which you portray foreshadow in your posts.

Don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter — we’ll feature some of our favorite shots from the month’s most popular photo challenge in our monthly missive.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.

    1. “Blue storm-clouds in hot heavens of mid-July
      Hung heavy, brooding over land and sea:
      Our hearts, a-tremble, throbbed in harmony
      With the wild, restless tone of air and sky…” – Emma Lazarus.

  1. It’s always a bit of a challenge gauging how long you can stay out with your camera before the clouds break open and soak you and your expensive equipment. Usually, I cut it close, but make the safety of the car in time … every once in a while, I miscalculate. This time, was one of the good ones. The day was bright and sunny and I watched the clouds gather, shooting in sequence from sun to almost dark.
