Just as I was about to share this post I wasn't do happy with the first shot in the post, so I slipped this shot in again at the top so it shows in the thumbnail preview :)
Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.

Note: with the changes with the hardfork I will have to see how it goes for the first week, but if the rewards are cut as I expect them to be, I may have to reduce how many SBI shares I give out each week, but will assess this week and decide before next weeks post


A good App that works well in conjunction with the Wednesday Walk or any day walk is @actifit, which rewards you with Actifit Tokens and Steemit Upvotes, if you use the app to track your steps and do a post of your actifit total each day.

If you do a lot of activity I do recommend you check it out

And if you are looking for another fun challenge, check out the Make Me Smilehosted by @elizacheng, coming soon we will be working to collaborate on occasionally on these challenges,
The third Wednesday of the month out two challenges will collaborate so if you combine the two into one post you have double the fun

This weeks Wednesday Walk On and around the Boardwalk in Silver Sands State Park

For this weeks post I will share a few shots taken on a walk along the boardwalk at Silver Sands State Park, Staring with a shot from the Car Park near to Walnut Beach and actually showing someone walking towards the park and Boardwalk

I am totally at a loss as why I used the settings I did for this shot, I think I had been taking some long exposures beforehand perhaps, and saw the sun through the trees and snapped this quick shot, not the best of shots, but I wanted to show someone walking to start the photos for this post

This next shot is on the boardwalk a bit earlier on the same day with a nice glow from the soon to rise sun, this walk is on I often go to on weekends, and one I never tire of visiting

At least I had more conventional settings for this shot :)

And just near to where i took this last shot was a guy building one of the rock sculptures or cairns.

And this is the finished piece he was building when I walked back past it later that morning, I am always impressed with how they build these the patience to find the right rocks and get them balancing just right is pretty impressive to me

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to send some Steem Basic Income shares to 5 people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. @whatisnew, @wwwiebe,@almi, @kenikat,@singa, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk . And a bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @deerjay,

As the Third Wednesday @elizacheng and I collaborated with our Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenges

For the make me smile Challenge the lucky winner receiving an SBI share from me is @joanstewart

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

Great shots! I have a bad feeling the rewards are going to be dismal. We will see though.

YEs I do think you are right apparently if you earn less than 20Per post the rewards go Dow above 20 and it goes up, since I never make anywhere near 20 or 10 or 5 for that matter per post then the rewards will clearly go down

I love the hues in these shots that's great! Seeing that Sunrise makes me want to get out of bed! I loved your initiative keep up the awesome work. Steem on man!

Thanks so kind of you to say I have bene a morning person since I remember i think my alarm has been set for the same time 4:20 ish since i was about 14 and most days I wake up before it goes off so catching sunrises s no problem for me

Hmmm...I'm gonna have to write that down. I love that flaming tree setting the sky on fire.

Hmm Indeed I looked at it and could not for the life of me work out where my head was when taking that shot LOL
I do love the tree effect, but not so much the foreground

Thanks Rosa, I dont have set rules for the Wednesday Walk, I ave guidelines but the only rule I would make is to have fun doing the walk and post, but I will swing by and check out your post :)

These are absolutely glorious shots!!! And it's really cool you captured the guy balancing the rocks before you photographed the final art. That is amazing.........perfect timing 😊

Thanks so Kind of you :) I have seen the rock towers a few times but this morning it was cool to actually see someone making one ;)

My pleasure..............I agree, very cool!!!

he patience these people have who stack rocks like that is impressive I don’t think I would have the patience for it myself LOL

Oh, my!!! So very pretty!!! On the second photo, the tree appears to be on fire! Just fantastic! WOW!

Thanks yes that second shot I was unsure whether to share or not I do love the effect of the sun onthe tree but not so much the foreground

...and I am so glad that you did. I seldom see photos like that.... viewing that photo was an added experience. Thank you!

Aww you so kind thanks so much

Beautiful colors.. looks like a paint.. ❤❤💙💛

Thanks Kindly I do dit some of my photos in a mild painterly style :)

What do you mean not the best of shots? I love the way that photo came out with the person walking! I also love the one that you started the post with! I feel the same as far as the thumbnail photo and have switched a photo out a time or two depending how it looks! Terrific post Jay and Happy Wednesday!! 🙂

Thnaks for such a kind comment,I do love the sun and the effect on the tree but the foreground just looks dark moody and noisy to me LOL, maybe it was just my mood today I guess I liked when it when I edited the photo LOL

You are welcome Jay!! I do tend to gravitate more to dark and 😉

I seem to bounce all over the place some nights when editing photos I go bright and warm other nights I Rem to e in a moe dark and moody mode lOL I guess that makes me inconsistent LOL

Nothing more invigorating than a walk by the water :-)

OHh yes by the water is my favorite place to get out walking

While I don't blame you for making that shot your thumbnail, I have to say that capture of the person walking from the car park is actually my favorite this week! Regardless of why you had the settings the way you did, they worked out perfectly (IMHO, of course).

Congrats to @joanstewart and thanks again for being such a gracious host. Here's my contribution for this week -

And, !tip steem

Thanks so much I few have told me they like that one :) I just didn't particularly like the foreground

Beautiful lights! Those rock cairns are very good!

HF has played havoc with voting scale/ruler and they don’t match! Something has gone missing or drained!

Thanks and I hadn’t noticed that with the slider thanks for letting me know

The guy did a pretty good job on building his cairn. Great light in your photos!

Thanks the light was nice that morning
It was great to finally see someone building a cairn

Thanks I saw your post just a little while ago

Sun coming up behind the trees turned out impressive in the early morning light.

Boardwalk different on each visit, time, tide and people around.

What a stunning place to be walking the scenery is so cool i love it :)

Thanks I do go there often its my favorite spot for morning walks

Thanks, I do love the tree part of the photo but not so much the foreground

If I had that boardwalk and view, I would be walking on it every chance I got. Stunning! What a unique rock sculpture and a perfect place for it.
Thanks so much for the SBI @tattoodjay! I sure do appreciate it. : )

I am lucky to have it close by I generally visit it at least once every weekend and the other day visit one of the other beaches

Those stacked rocks are sure cool! Amazing how many
they can stack up! Such beautiful sunrises you have! :-)

I love seeing when people make the rock stacks like that the people that make them must be a lot more patient than me

Apart from that guy these photos are gorgeous ;)
You know, I envy you for this beach and that boardwalk is such a beautiful thing.

LOL I completely forgot about that guy and Had to go look, I am sure to someone he may well be gorgeous also :)
I am Rudy lucky to have this beach and boardwalk so close to home i do love my morning walks there

Did I tell you, that my second name is Rudolf? So, I am also a Rudy - why am I not lucky and why don't I have such a beach? lol

Of course, somebody might find him gorgeous, I did not mean to be mean. But I would have preferred if he had put on the shirt ;) lol

Lol of course I meant really not Rudy
Is that really your middle name one of my recent previous and long time bosses was a Rudy
I know what you mean about the guy I was just being silly

I thought, this was another saying - "Rudy lucky" sounds nice, doesn't it?

Do you like this boss? If you do, then "yes, it is my middle name" if not, then forget it ;)

I know, and I usually don't care how other people look like, but he simply did not fit in the beautiful photo ;) lol

As for liking the boss yes and no lol

I do see what you mean about that guy in the photo

Gidday my friend 😊
OK, my middle name is Rudolf, but nobody ever calls me Rudy ;)
But he makes the photo somehow special - he adds a meaning into it 😉

Well I won’t ever call you Rudy
Since we are talking names I think you know most people call me JJ not my given name of John which I don’t like but the JJ could be JJJ my parents gave me the name John Joseph and when I was confirmed in the church I picked James as my third name 😂
