As the title says!!! The new theme is WINTER. That can be what ever winter means to you so if you're in QLD and winter is still going to the beach so be it. Open to interpretation.

Can be taken for the challenge or an old photo. I will leave it open for two weeks to be closed on SUNDAY JULY 10.

EB rules - 500px wide x 470 px high and 100kb maximum or you can post a link to your flickr photo.

Hi Everyone,

Sliding in and fully prepared to not be considered. I have had a bad luck with technology within the last week or so. I have successfully killed 2 computer screens, 1 mobile phone, attempted to kill another, required that the ipad be completely reset and lost everything. I think my DH is about to ban me from it.

Here is my entry, I have had to go back into the files for this one, I did take it towards the end of May this year so I am not sure that it counts.


Have fun

I'm leaving it open for a bit longer to give people more time :)

Well it's slim pickings (and late) but I will give it to Katpaws. I love ice on plants! Very pretty :)

Do you think maybe we should try this in What do you think? Or perhaps have a comp, advertise it in one of the bigger forums and get people to vote for a winner (ie poll)?? That might spark people up.

I actually shared this one in Misc when I started the thread. It didn't help apparently, but we can do it again just to try and bring in some more interest.

Wow, how did I not see this earlier? Thanks for sharing, everyone.

Katpaws and Peanut, I had a good look through your Flickr photostreams and liked what I saw - y'all have a keen artistic eye.

Thanks, Chic but posters like Peanuts and others have way better pictures than me.

Do you guys want me to do another challenge and advertise it elsewhere (in Misc?)???

Congratulations Katpaws :)

Peanut I am moving to where you live if that is your winter. Much better than here which is wet and cold.

I would like another challenge. I would say advertise it where you want to. I hadn't realised that people had been and only look in here though.

It would be nice to try and bring a few more people over this way and get this area moving more. I say we start a new one here and try to promote it around the forum a bit more.
