February Challenge

First, congratulations to Alan Pickersgill on winning the November to January challenge with his image “Icicles melt”.  His winning image is on the main page of our website!  Go to:

As the winner, Alan has chosen “February” as this month’s challenge. The particulars are below:

February. The shortest month, the coldest month. Frost bitten parts and valentine hearts. Snow bound faces and south bound places. We love it, we hate it, we endure it. Capture the essence of your February and share it in a photograph.

Please note that entries must to be shot between January 17th and February 19th, the day before our next monthly meeting. We will vote for the winning image during the February 20th monthly meeting.

John and Dianne will be away for almost the entire month … Cuba (no internet or email) and California (late in the month) are far too inviting! Seems to fit in quite well with Alan’s description!! If you send to John, there is no guarantee that your entry will be posted.
