Scavenger Hunt #196 Dec 22 - Jan 4

Thank you darcilicious for choosing the black and white shot. It was my fave of the two I had.

The topic of the next hunt is 'Winter Event'. It can be a formal event or just something that only happens in winter. Be sure to include with each entry how it relates to the topic.

* Photos must be taken during the hunt time frame. No archived photos allowed.
* You may post as many entries as you wish
* No larger than 1024 pixels on the longest side.
* The winner will host the next hunt.
* This hunt runs through Jan 4, 2013

Have fun, this is pretty wide open, so just about any snapshot you take in the next week or so will qualify.

Best wishes to all for a joyous and peaceful time of year.

O.

Good idea. This leaves it wide open for all kinds of things that are Winter Events. Fortunately, 12,21,12 didn't turn out to be the event some thought that it would!

lovely topic... I'll go... Every year as a family we take a trip out the the Gaylord Texan Hotel and visit their ICE show... The hotel is huge and they have a winter theme with things to do here and there... it's such a wonderful place for a 'staycation' and when they decorate it, it's even better... »www.gaylordhotels.com/gaylord-te···dex.html

Darn! Didn't see this in the sticky until today! Maybe you could add a week to the time?

Buckle Up. It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car.

That's because I bitched to tmpchaos See Profile about it not being a sticky.

If no one notified through "hey mods", Mods may not have noticed it. I try to send a quick "hey mods" with a link to the new topic if I host a hunt.

OK, I didnt realize we had to do that. If folks want a little more time, that's fine with me. Any objections?

Ok it is extended to close midnight 23:59 on Jan 11. I got to figure out if I can change the original title.

Happy New Year!

Gulf coast winter activity - watching sunsets.

I recently hosted, so this is just for inspiration for people with no "winter". I defer potential hosting to others who haven't hosted recently.

I really liked Hooper's tree shot. Nice depth, simple colors, gets the atmosphere across. Hooper gets the torch!

EGeezer, you inspired me to go get some REAL winter sunset pics .

Darcilicious, nice shot of Santa's helper .

The Gaylord ones are great too. A friend of mine took his daughter there and send a load of pics. That's a hot deal.

Thanks to all,

I wanted to participate, but there is nary a hint of winter around here. Even some patches of green grass.
Very unusual, and even a little worrisome.

Please do not plow me
I was going to take a 2013 version of the decorative Zamboni, but the guy took it in early this year.

Here's a couple non-entries taken in Vernon, CT. This is what's left of the last snow we had and the winter parking lot stakes .

Somebody up there must be chopping firewood or reading seed catalogs!

Is anyone going to close this one out and start a new one? It's only 12 days past the announced closing date.

I sent Hooper an IM, in case he didn't see the post about the winner. If nothing happens by the morning, I'll pick a first runner up.
