Weekly Challenge #634 The winter is coming
Posted By: Yaki, 11-29-2023, 01:54 PM

Thanks again to jchorst for hosting the previous Theme and choosing me to continue the challenge.
The new Weekly Challenge is coming. Just Like the new season. The winter is coming - at least in the northern hemisphere. Lets welcome it with your pictures. Add if you show some undead creatures coming with the winter - they will be welcomed too .
That was form another story but every interpretation on the theme is acceptable never the less.
Hope to see your here and have fun!

This challenge will close at 24.00 UTC on Wednesday 6th December 2023 - The day of Saint Nicholas. According to some theories, he is the prototype of Santa Claus.

1. Post ONE photo only.
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 or Ricoh 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.

I've posted this shot before, but I don't think it was in one of the challenges. It was taken a couple years ago in my backyard during a snowstorm. I really liked the way the reddish brown leaves and the birdhouse add just a bit of colour to the scene. Taken with my K3 and screw mount SMC 50 1.4 with a relatively slow shutter speed to show the falling snow around the aspen. I'm tempted to have it made into a jug saw puzzle for my mom, but that would be a bit mean.
