Season Photos, page 3

Like all the great contests here, this one has a particular theme so no posting photos of your great Aunt Ethel or the neighbour's dog.
As the month of March often signifies the change of season, we felt that we would like to see some photos that best represent this climatic time of change all over the world. Be it from Winter to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere or from Summer to Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, we want to see it all!

Photographs must be taken by Elftowners and posted here by the original photographer. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here without the photographer's permission. Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e. no coffe stained, faded Kodachrome photos from the 1960's. Any such entry will be removed. Each member may enter 2 entries!! Please keep in mind that it is possible that a photograph has the same title as another one. This is not against the rules as long as the photographers' names are clear.
Ok... a few last minute notes: While this is a photograph based competition, we will not be accepting photomanipulations for this particular contest. We want to see your photos of what best depicts the change of seasons, no fairies or unicorns this time around.
Do not feel limited to nature only shots. Anything you feel is a sign of changing seasons is welcomed... just be ready to explain your photo if the need arises.

Since the chosen images will be featured on Main Street, we would like to keep them fairly small. Your image should be no wider than 300 pixels and the height should be no more than 500. Be creative but please keep that in mind!

Subject Matter:
Submissions for Mainstreet will not be accepted if they feature violence or disturbing actions. Only photographs will be accepted.

What will we be expecting? Creativity and change-of-season based photos: melting snow, muddy fields, monsoons, - you get the idea.

Deadline: March 21, 2005

How to post it here:
Add your image after the last one that has been already posted. Don't forget to write its title and your user name. For example:

1. "Title" - [insert user name]

Two Photographs will be chosen by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented.
The winners will receive the colored badge and the participants will receive the green version of it:

An Alaskan term for the first snowfall on the mountains, signaling that winter is finally on the way...

I'm not sure this one fits the theme but I'll leave it for now.

Clouds forming over a summer sky in Cyprus.

The snow begins to melt from the mountains that downtown Juneau, Alaska is up against.

108. "Woodland in Springtime"
By: [evil penguin]
When I found this picture, I at first could not tell if it was Summer turning to Fall or Winter to Spring, So I decided to skip winter entirely so it is Fall to Spring.

109. "Spring Births"
By: [evil penguin]
Winter changing to Spring is like birth: beautiful, exciting, and a little funny looking.

by: [ArchangelGabriel]

"christmas snow"
I'm not sure this one fits the theme either but I'll leave it for now.

117. "Shining Through" [Raiko Fire]
I took this on the first day it was really warm after winter, so I think Spring is just shining through.

118. "The Colour of Blood" [Raiko Fire]
Red, of course, is the colour of blood and new life. So I think these berries just grasp the idea (and they were the only bright thing in the forest ^^)

I'm not sure this one fits the theme but I'll leave it for now.
