!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Edible Nuts (not coconuts)

This challenge closed about 5 years ago.

The Challenge

So nuts in the general term, forget that some things called nuts are seeds, as long as the name is nut and it is from nature abd NOT coconuts it should be fine… here is a no list (not exhaustive as we may have overlooked something) followed by some examples of what we would like. See the example photo as always to see what we are after.


Normal seeds, eg sunflower seeds, apple pips etc. We are looking for things that are generally referred to as nuts.
Coconuts. It’s in the name, sure but no.
Beans, be they broad, kidney, edamame etc etc.


peanuts/ground nuts/monkey nuts
hazelnuts (haselnuts)
chestnuts (edible or not are ok)
pecan nuts
brazil nuts (I hear these are seeds… but they work here
almonds (not called nuts but are classed as them

Can be cooked, still on the tree/plant etc, packed, not packed etc.

If your photo is rejected re-read all the above before contacting us :-)


As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the photoshop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids, reptiles or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Note: Please don’t be disheartened if your image is removed from the challenge, you can always ask us why that happened, but the usual answer starts with the challenge description – please read it :-)
