Here in the Northern Hemisphere, that time of year is upon us again - Fall (and soon Winter) Season(s) and all the weather, holidays, celebrations, seasonal foliage, food goodies,
and traditions that many folks enjoy this time of year.
So, my idea for the theme is images of any and all things "Fall/Winter Seasonal" - that's pretty wide open, and in addition to the usuals from N. America, I'd love to see scenes/images from other Places
and Peoples (hemispheres?), and how they may enjoy these times in their cultures.

This Mini will run from now, until Saturday, November 9, 9:00PM PST Please enjoy!

*******************************************************************************

OUR UN-OFFICIAL GENERAL RULES
1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and YOU POST 1-3 IMAGES. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter. The 1st place winner becomes the next host, chooses the next topic and becomes the next judge.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
5. You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, just ask within your post.
6. The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.

IMPORTANT: ENTRIES DUE NO LATER THAN 9PM PACIFIC TIME ON SATURDAY, 9 NOVEMBER!!!

Guidelines:
1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, don't let this just be an entry thread!
6. When quoting a post, change the IMG urls to a 200x200 size picture so it is clear your post is feedback and not another entry. (See here for help).
7. Don't be hesitant; share 'em and enter!

Mini-Challenge pointers:
1. Upon winning a mini-challenge round, your first step is coming up with a new theme and starting a new thread using the same format as others have used.
2. Make sure to notify the admin of this thread to update the main thread links with your entry thread.
3. Feel free to watch the thread as it grows or wait to the end time and look at all the entries all at once.
4. After the time/date has passed, then officially close the thread with a single post notifying everyone of the fact.
5. After you're finished judging, start a new thread (again using the prior formats) and post your Winner and runners-up. It is important to have runners up in case the winner does not show within the 72-hour window.
6. PM the winner with this info above and let them know they have 72 hours to set up the next mini-challenge.
7. If the winner does not show/start the next mini-challenge after 72 hours, notify the next runner-up and post a message on the Winner thread of the fact.
8. Remember, if you're the Winner, you run the next mini challenge!

    We don't have any 'real' season change where I live, so the nice seasonal shots are hard to come by. My grass is still green; the leaves are still green and still on the trees; it is still quite warm; snow is extremely rare....you get the picture....(lol).

    I do have a few images from a trip to a pumpkin patch. This is as close as I can get to "Fall". <img src="https://us.v-cdn.net/6029383/emoji/mwink.gif&quot; border="0" alt="" >

    I don't know if I even have any others that reflect this season. I'll have to keep looking.

    I remain envious of those who live or travel to areas with beautiful fall or winter scenery. <sigh>

    I've been on a trip, so I have hastily picked some photos for this - I thought I would have more time for some reason

    100_0431.JPG

    100_3226.JPG

    x100_0448.JPG

    For some reason this looks like a Christmas card to me. It is the cupola of the Cedar Point Lighthouse, which no longer exists.
