Our spring colours here are white on white. Would it be possible to get a 3 or 4 month extension on this contest we are digging out from a blizzard that closed down businesses, highways and schools?

You expect to still have snow on the ground in July?

I think you can also submit a photo you took last season or some other time?

If you can't find spring colors outside, perhaps you can elsewhere! This contest isn't limited to nature photos. Also, it's 100% permissible to submit photos from your archives.

I'm having trouble submitting a photo for the contest. I uploaded it (2x), but cannot figure out how to post it to my original submission where I forgot to embed or attach it.

lol why so many complaints?
Adam said it can be:
a) old photos from past spring
b) doesn't have to be nature photo. Can be a photo of a model in a studio with spring colour dress and makeup. Can be products. A flower in a greenhouse. Colours in a kaleidoscope. City murals.
c) post processing can turn many different nature photos taken in different climates/seasons fit the "spring colours" theme

Spring colours doesn't mean it has to be taken outside during spring. Keep in mind that I have spring over here, but the weather is terrible. Should I complain "herp derp this theme is only for people who have sunshine this month"? You can be creative and do something - it is a challenge after-all. Or, you can find an older photo that fits the theme (unless you are one year old and havent experienced spring before). Or, you can skip this one, there is no penalty for not taking part..

Rules of the competition

Someone please let me know if I made a mistake. I did not see in the rules that the photo is required to be taken within certain dates. If this is part of the challenge, it would be nice to know.

People here in the northern part of the US (myself included) are just cranky due to the long and miserable winter. Still not a sign of green here in Chicago. The spring theme is just an opportunity to vent

There's no such requirement. Also long as it's taken with a Pentax, any time is fine
