Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #73: Winter Landscapes

"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape... the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show."

-Andrew Wyeth

It's occurs to me that we haven't given WINTER a proper welcome. Let's fix that by getting outside and taking some WINTER LANDSCAPE photos. I know we did a similar assignment a couple weeks ago, but that was a generalized look at WEATHER, this time around I want to see something a little more refined. I want to see some WINTER LANDSCAPE photos that really shows WINTER at it's most beautiful and raw.

Extra Credit: Show me a WINTER activity, such as Ice Skating.

If you don't happen to live in the Northern Hemisphere, and therefore aren't in the season of WINTER, please take on this alternate assignment and show me something BEAUTIFUL BUT COLD! Ice Cream. Mountains. Iced Tea. It's all good!

Extra Credit: Show me someone engaging in a WARM weather activity. Surfing. Water Skiing, Picnicking... anything WARM weather related.

The deadline for this assignment is next Sunday evening at 9:00 PM ET. Please submit your entries by that time. All you have to do is get your photo, upload it to your blog, journal or website, and then comeback here with the direct link back to it. PLEASE REMEMBER... the link you leave must go back to an entry which is specific to this week's photo shoot assignment. A general link to your site won't work, and NO HYPERLINKS ARE ACCEPTED. Also, please include a link back here in your entry so others can find the photo shoot assignment and play along with us.
