As the winner, Gord’s choice for the April challenge is below.

“Flowing Water in the Great Outdoors.It is Spring and we live in the Niagara Escarpment region.  Water from the Spring runoff is flowing in our local streams, rivers, cataracts and waterfalls.  Whether you capture it as crisp water droplets or as a wispy veil, get out, explore and discover our region’s aquatic treasures.  Remember to take care around breaking ice and adjacent wet and slippery areas.”

Please note that entries must to be shot between March 20th and April 16th, the day before our next monthly meeting. We will vote for the winning image during the April 17th monthly meeting. Post your image to the comments section, April Challenge, on the GPG Flickr site.  The Flickr site will be updated shortly.  Also please heed Gord’s warning about breaking ice and slippery areas!

If you have any issues posting to the FlickR site, please send your image directly to me by email. Good luck!
