Challenge #487 : Weather
Posted By: Vaskebjorn, 02-16-2020, 08:06 AM

This week’s challenge is a bit more down to earth, or high in the sky, just as you want to portray it. We are a bit stuck in the Netherlands between storms, so I am looking for photo’s showing the weather. It can be all kinds of weather, sunny, rain, storm, snowy winter. Just dive into your archives or pick up the weather resilient Pentax and get some new photo,s

This Challenge ends February 23, 2020 12:00 (Midnight) Amsterdam time.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Blowing snow is one of the hardest things to capture in a photograph (in my opinion of course). I worked as a travelling salesman for 26 years and encountered similar conditions many times.

I was driving to a place for an early morning hike when I came upon this odd fog. This was during morning twilight, about 10-15 minutes before sunrise.
