Weather: Weekly Photography Challenge

Weather: Weekly Photography Challenge

Twelve Days of Christmas (Day 11)   ** EXPLORE No. 1 **Earlier in the week we featured an image set that contained 25 images that all had ‘snow’ as a feature. So today we thought it might be fun to do a ‘weather’ challenge as our weekly theme.

Your challenge is to take and share an image on the theme of weather.

As we have a global audience this should produce images with a real variety of types of weather. Aussie – we want you to show the world what summer is like for you right now. North Americans and Europeans – show us how winter is going?

We want to see rain, hail, snow, sun, storms, wind… you name it – we’d love to see some images that attempt to capture it. Feel free to tackle the topic with what ever type of shot you like, landscape, portrait, colour, black and white… anything you like – be creative!

Looking for inspiration – in addition to the Snow image collection we also have a Rain image collection.

Once you’ve taken and selected your best WEATHER shot upload it to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to it or – embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSCUTE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in our last challenge – Cute challenge where there were some beautiful shots submitted.

    We had a lot of weather this week in Ontario. Toronto was pounded with a snowstorm for two days. I love this kind of winter. Don’t mind shoveling my driveway either … :)

    Here in Eastern Ontario we seem to be getting the effects of the "Texas Lows" but to be honest, the lakes are low and we need the precipitation.

    This picture was taken as the snow started to melt after Blizzard Nemo. It was a total accident to be honest. It shows the water water - Morris Canal that runs off the Hudson in Jersey City. You can see lower Manhattan in the distance...[/img]

    On the east coast of Malaysia, during northeast monsoon season normally between December and February, it well means frequent downpour and rough waves. This strong and big waves were captured at one of the beaches on the east coast of Malaysia last January.

    Well - In the "snow" post I shared one from a series of snowy portraits of a friend in a red dress so I'll share another one of my favorites from that series here for the weather challenge as this photo was taken at the start of a blizzard which dumped nearly 30 inches of snow in my area. She was a brave girl going out on this dock in a short red dress and flats in the snow!
