Any one want to play?
Last January, during a few snow days when I was trapped at home with the kids, my daughter and I took our cameras when we went on a hike. For a recap of that check out these two postings: Mine, and My Daughters photos from Jan. 2009 or go to my labels and click on Camera Wars.
Here are the rules for this contest:
*To enter, Take a hike near where you live this weekend, snap a photo or two of the nature you encounter, post your favorite weekend/winter picture on your blog and then come tell me by leaving a comment and a link to your blog so I can direct viewers to all the competitors.
* What to photograph? No people, only nature! Kids are cute, but I'd like to see everyone getting out and exploring their surroundings. It's that time of year when it's easy to want to stay inside...bundle up, get out! You'll be happy that you did.
*Snow in your picture is not necessary.
*Entries must be submitted no later than Monday, January 11, 2010 at midnight.
What you can win? How about a generous batch of my homemade coconut balls dipped in chocolate (think Mounds bars)? They are nut free and gluten free! I might even attach a little winter surprise too! Since I am offering up food as a reward I think I need to limit this contest to the US and Canada...but I don't think I have any international readers anyway.
I am still working out how the winner will be decided. I might go to an outside source and ask for their help in choosing. I will not be using a random generator. I feel that the best picture should be the winner.
This is my first ever giveaway so I hope I've covered all the rules well enough. Let me know if you have any questions.
I took the above picture this morning...I felt like I was in Narnia as Winston and I walked in the woods! Sorry you weren't with me, my camera is definitely not as sharp as my eye.
