It's still winter here so this is one of my favorite days from the summer, hiking along a ridge in the Yukon.

It's Autumn here, so it's time to grab as much water as you can before it gets too cold. Taken the other week, this young boy was hilarious running away from the waves screaming.

Around here it's a bit premature for blooms and blossoms but when the sun shines...it's always a beautiful day.

Congrats & props for the five or six people who read this and submitted accordingly. Half of the entries don't deserve comment, except " inappropriate ".

It's the interpretation that counts. For instance I associate spring with flowers so I submitted a picture of a flower. All of the entries deserve comment, and that comment is one of praise - as each showcases what their respective poster associates with the brief, and each required effort to acheive.

Well said!

But then what is the point of suggesting guidelines for any contest if "anything goes"?
If someone says "post pictures of 'Fall' , and I submit a photo of daffodils because that's what it means to me...?
