Talking Photo challenge # 31: COLD (as in temperature/weather)

R U L E S:- The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE image (only first image by one person will be judged) that is relevant to the challenger theme. You can change your image as many times as you like before the deadline.

- The host chooses a winner *AND* runner-up after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is *not* eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, tells everyone when the photo's must be posted by (give some reasonable amount of time like a week), runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. Winner/Host, please post a reasonable topic that someone who's not a pro photographer can be a part of. Remember it's not just cool shots, but the story that can be told for some.

- If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 48 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

- Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera it was taken with. You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera, lens and exposure info along with your photo.

- All levels welcome. If you don't have the best lens or just a plain old pocket camera but your shot tells a wonderful story then there's no reason you can't win! This is about overall photo's and their story, not just about expensive equipment.

- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, ask for it...after all we are here to learn too and practice.

- Provide any additional information concerning your entry you want. Explaining how the shot might relate to the topic could help too.

- Winner/Host, please copy and paste these rules into the topic and thread that you post because some might start doing contests later

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

The next photo challege topic is "Cold".

Since I won't be able to participate as this challenge's post host, I wanted to give everyone with true winter weather a grand opportunity for this particular challege.

I'm looking for pictures that effectively and actively convey the feeling of "cold" temperature/weather. This is just not pictures with the current outdoor temperature or of just ice and snow, that's lame. I want to look at the picture and say "Yup, that's definitely cold!" So come on people this is an optimum challenge for all of you back there in the Midwest, so get off your behinds and participate.

Deadline is 11:59 PM Sunday CST, January 25th.

My favorite example!

I took the picture about 10 years ago in a photography class
the camera was a canon SLR I dont remeber which model and certainly dont remeber the lens or setings

After driving alll the way up there and Hunny not getting a tattoo Sunday, decided to snap some images on the way back. Near Lake Geneva...definitely not a warm and tingly feeling from this one for me...

The haze is from the exhaust and my breath. I took this pic, and the pic from the other thread with me on the bike is my setup with my mom holding the camera and pressing the shutter release.

Thanks guys.


For my official entry I will go with the 1st one. It was taken at 14,200 ft on the side of Mt. McKinley, Alaska, at Basin Camp. It was probably day 7 of a storm that lasted 2 weeks, pinning us and every other climber on the mountain in place. It was DAMN cold up there.

best idea i've come up with so far is to take a pic of frozen dog poop. think that's in the running against some of those shots posted above??


ooh maybe if I can catch some with steam still rising, that shows it's pretty cold out!
