Point and Shoot Contest #27: "Seasons"

It occurred to me that we come from so many parts of the world, our seasons are all the same, but occur at different times of the year. Its high summer (and wet as) down here in New South Wales at the moment, but in other parts of the world, its snow and blizzards...

So, shoot what shows the season at your place now, and over the next couple of weeks.

THE RULES

1. Remember to have fun!

2. No 35mm, APS, or 4/3 SLR/DSLR cameras allowed. 110 film SLRs, 35mm and smaller rangefinder/viewfindercameras are allowed. No medium or large format cameras allowed.

3. Entries will close on January 30th, 2010 at 7 a.m. Australian Eastern Standard Time

4. Maximum image dimensions are 800x800 pixels.

5. List camera brand, model with entry for all to see.

6. THEME: "Seasons"

7. Max of 4 photographs per person.

8. Post processing is fine.

9. Winner will set up and judge next contest.

Enjoy!

Well, seems I'll go first. All with Panasonic FX500.

4 entries on Seasons begs for a Four Seasons approach

Spring






Summer






Autumn






Winter







Was always quite fond of Vivaldi as well

Heh heh, sorry. I just had to wait for the right time to take some pictures. I'm sure everyone thinks that it's always sunny in Southern California, but every once in a while that image is shattered by storms.

Both photos shot with Canon Powershot A570 IS

Remember the contest closes Australian time. That means its a bit less than 36 hours from now. In fact, to be exact, it is 34 hours and 15 minutes from the time of this post. I didnt think that Seasons would be a difficult topic, and I really thought I would be seeing a lot more from the white and wintery northern hemisphere... anyhoo... come on down

Well, here we are at the end of another month. I hope that people enjoyed the little contest, its brought some lovely shots, to be sure. I've been looking as the shots have been posted, and have changed my mind a dozen times. I want to give firsts to everyone

Honourable mention to skid2964 for the handprint on icy glass - original concept, well presented.

3rd: Pentastic for that wonderful shot over the river, with the fog and smoke... brrrrr
2nd: Bart: For "Summer" - absolutely epitomised by the sunflower, great shot.
1st: Mamba909: for the first shot of the cherry blossoms, just gorgeous.

So, Mamba909, its down to you for the next competition.

Congratulations to everyone who posted, I enjoyed seeing your work
