2013 Photography Challenge- Weather

It is time again for the photography challenge!  Each week, I present a new theme and challenge myself and anyone else that would like to participate to come up with a photo that represents that theme.  It is an opportunity to try out all the bells and whistles of your fancy digital camera and have some fun along the way.

This week our theme is “Weather”.  But before we begin, please take a few moments to check out some of the amazing photos submitted last week, when our theme was “Wilderness”!  The submissions were just beautiful!

This photo was taken a few years ago as we really haven’t seen any decent snow here in Georgia in quite a few years.  So when we do, not only does the city of Atlanta totally shut down, but we run outside and take lots of photos, build snowmen, and just plain act like kids.  This is my driveway and a bit of sunrise, all framed with beautiful fresh snow.

Meanwhile, the local reporters are out in the field with their rulers showing us just how deep and treacherous this half inch of snow can be!  Only in the South.  Really.

This photo was taken with my Canon SX30IS and edited using the free software at picmonkey.com.

So how did you do?

It’s not too late!  Email your “Weather” photos to me!  Check out the Submission Guidelines.  I will post your photos here along with any information that you would like to include.  If you have a website, feel free to add a link to your site!  I will be taking “Wilderness”  photo submissions all week!  Feel free to send your original photo!

 This photo was taken from my front door. The ice and snow storm shut down businesses, stopped traffic on the interstate and knocked out electricity. We were lucky it was gone in a few days. I used pickmonkey.com to frame and write on the photo. ~Brenda Williams- Weatherford, OK- Cats, Kids and Crafts

#1.   Storm approaching  the Air Force Academy in Colorado. #2.  Same storm approaching Garden of the Gods in Colorado. Photographs look so much better with clouds or approaching storms in the sky.  We visited Mt Rushmore and I couldn’t wait to get a photograph…. It was a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky, but that made for boring photos.  #3.  Getting ready for our trip to Florida, LOL.  ( 12/26/2002) He’s anxious to get out of here!!  #4.  Ice storm leaving us without power for 4 days.  Brrrrrr. ~ Nancy- Massachusetts

Next Week’s Theme- Art Work

Our challenge next week is to take a photo and using Picmonkey.com’s free software, make that photo look like it was drawn or painted.  Have fun with all those extras that Picmonkey allows you for free!  Here is a photo of River Street in Savannah that I made into a “painting” using picmonkey last year.

See you back here next weekend!

Be sure to visit some of our previous photography challenges!

    Love these weather photos, but I don’t think I am near as creative as you when it comes to turning a photo into a piece of art work for next week’s challenge:)
