    Challenge 181 - January Weather!

    The challenge this month is to take a take picture that shows, however you wish to do so, the weather that you get in January. Rain, wind, snow, sunshine, frost, cloud; we all get of these in varying degrees and sometime more than one at a time so let us see some aspect of what is visited upon you!

    You could show the weather directly, how it has affected the people or wildlife or its effect on the local environment, you are free to choose

    For those new or shy on this forum, I would encourage you to enter. Hopefully in doing so you will challenge yourself and have a bit of fun at the same time.

    Judging will be based on :-

    * fulfilling the brief
    * a good photo based on composition, focus and consideration to the light.
    * Having impact. Will I remember your image after I go away from the computer?

    The usual rules apply:-

    • The competition subject shall be selected by the winner of the preceding competition who will also judge the competition.
    • One picture per person; images should conform to general image posting rules.
    • All entries to be shot with a Canon EOS camera i.e. SLR / DSLR / M & R series
    • Posted images should be taken during the running period of the competition. Any images submitted that were taken before the competition started, or after the competition has ended, will be deemed invalid.
    • Images 800 pixels widest maximum (to help those with small monitors).
    • No Photoshop frames and borders.
    • Include a title; the image must convey the theme without title description.
    • Please, NO comments on images- on this or another thread- until the round is over.
    • No canvassing e.g. “I’m thinking of posting this image for the challenge, what do you think?”
    • I will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourite images (please don’t PM me to discuss my choices).

    The closing date for the Challenge is midnight on 5th February GMT

        Frost on the windscreen - I see a path through a forest with fallen trees, but that might just be me!
