Photo Of The Week #2
Theme: your current season

Entry DEADLINE:
11/11/2018

If you like to take pictures then make sure to join in with our Picture Of The Week competition!
Not sure what this is about? Let me explain it to you what it is, it's really simple and fun.

The idea of this all is to take pictures related to the theme that is given to you. You can take as many pictures as you want, but you can only participate with one entry per member. Select your best picture and battle with other members. Every week there will be a new theme up for you, which is chosen by the winner of the previous POTW. Easy right?

You can take pictures with your camera if you have one, but a phone or tablet would do too. This week's theme is your current season. Autumn/fall for most of us, spring for some. Great things happen in nature during both of these seasons. You don't have to go out in nature though. As long as your photo matches the given theme. Be creative and have fun! You are allowed to post your series of pictures in our Creative Corner before you select one to participate with.


Questions?
If something is yet not really clear for you about POTW, feel free to pm me any time.


Rules
  • Only one entry per member
  • Simply post your picture in the topic
  • The picture must be taken by you
  • No premade pictures please
  • You must follow the theme
Prizes
  • Trophy that will be on your profile.
  • The fame and fortune ;)
  • Can choose the theme for the next POTW

Liking the extra time allowance! I have already taken a few .. nothing even remotely passable as of yet though xP

We still have over a month of Spring left, so i went for a bit of a walk on Friday to take some pics ..big mistake though. It was 35C outside ..got to the front gate and was just like .. nahhhhh, (even though it's for my beloved Atrium) no photo contest is worth dyin' in this heat for xD

Anyhow .. shall keep tryin' xP

@ThisIsBananas .. really looking forward to seeing your entry!! :D

If other participants wouldn't mind too much, please could entries be extended until Sunday?

We have a bit of a heatwave happening ..so it's a lil bit more difficult to be out and about at the moment. Temps are due to drop in a few days though, so I'll be able to take some pictures after that. :)

Also ..just a suggestion .. but could it be considered to perhaps lose the requirement that no premade pictures be allowed? (that is if the majority of people are in agreement) A lot of members are working long hours, or otherwise really busy and it would probably be a lot easier, and thus, we'd probably end up with more people participating.

So sorry people, major problems my end with my ISP, got dial up speed at the moment, so really have no chance at all of uploading anything. Have a technician due in a few hours, but knowing my ISP .. unreliable, at best.

I do have a few 'Spring' related images already hosted .. but they don't qualify ..as they were taken a few years ago. :p

Once again, please accept my apologies ..and go ahead and start the voting, as i will have to sit this one out.

Is there any way you can go to the library? They have computers there with working internet.

@ThisIsBananas .. aye nah. Have a few medical issues which make things so complicated. Not been able to walk for the last 2 years, although just started a lot of rehab for that ..but only at the stage where I can walk around 50 metres or so at one time. Also, i am not allowed to be in sunlight at all cause of meds i am on. Things are difficult, because I don't drive either.

'Tis cool though .. you peeps go ahead with this one and I'll look forward to taking part in the next! :)

This was taken about a zillionith of millisecond after one of the most beautiful lightening strikes I have eva really seen.

Over here we have a yearly event known as The Big Wet, which occurs during late Spring and Summer ..where we receive massive amounts of rain, almost always accompanied by wild storms.

Last night there were four lightening bolts that met in the middle and they formed a huge cross like figure in the sky. So very beautiful. Shame i missed it (the strike itself but hey ..my name's Jade .. not The Flash (pun intended) ;P )..but this was the immediate after effect.

Picture has not been edited in any way .. so strange how there is a straight line dividing the grey clouds above, from the pink residue from the lightening bolt below, and then again with dark grey rain clouds beneath that. The sky was completely dark grey ..with no visible pink as you might see in a sunset.

Tress are blurry, purely due to high winds, and only having an iPad to take photo on.
