2022 Fundamental Colour Challenge


Crikey thanks better get decent weather this weekend

Or preferably not. A dull, grey day would be ideal!

According to the clock anyway :smiley:

Grey Star Map built on old filled in Lido, Scarborough, South Bay. Its lights used to come on at night showing the stars but they don’t work any more. Taken 14th May using my Mini SE. Its difficult to get a sense of scale, about 20m across perhaps and virtually all grey!


Hi @hharron I’ve edited your post to include the OneBox preview.

To do this just paste the YouTube link into a new line of its own with no spaces etc.

No need to use the insert hyperlink button in the message composer or any embed code, its all done automatically for you if you follow the above.


Thank you! newbie flyer, newbie to posting :slight_smile: oh and thanks for your tip about Olivers Mount. My SE RC link is really badly affected by the radio masts so can’t fly near them!

Solar farm, out near Desborough, taken on M2P this morning at around 0815, sun was still low so reflection on panels was a nightmare

Thanks Karl. Bit of a spur-of-the-moment job - treated ourselves to a pre-Eurovision ‘chippy tea’ and drove down to the beach to eat it. Spotted the ship out there and realised with the sun setting like that there was barely any colour.

Taken on the floor of a long disused and abandoned quarry this morning near Edinburgh on a DJI Mini 2.

I was also personally challenged to do yellow - here it is.

These are bales of plastic waste. I like that although it’s grey (if you squint :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:), there’s a mix of colours in the bales.


The first Severn Bridge cost £8m to construct (a lot less than the £330m that the 2nd bridge!) and was opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September 1966. It replaced the vehicle ferry between Aust Cliff and Beachley Peninsula and carried the M4 motorway between England and Wales. The main section spans the Severn Estuary. The road continues on a smaller section across the river Wye and, a little further west, over the Wales Coast Path.

A quick flight from England to Wales and back, adjacent to the first Severn Bridge. It was raining and everything was grey

Some excellent entries as always :slight_smile:


Ages since I managed to get out for flight , had a picnic at Ingram valley Northumberland on Thursday 12th May …a very windy day but managed to fly for a while …this image is some mountain scree


I have been holding off on my entry as I knew that I would be near a rather interestingly shaped building today, but alas it has pished down all day. So this will have to be my entry.
