A Photo a Week Challenge: Spring

spring_nmp

Utah has had a long, cold winter this year, but spring has finally made its first appearance. And my hey fever is going crazy as proof. Luckily for me, I had my camera with me when I pulled into work earlier this week and was able to nab some lovely photos of the blossoming trees that are wreaking havoc with my sinuses. Whether you are heading into spring or it is a distant memory as your summer is coming to and end, this week’s challenge is to post some of your favorite spring or spring-inspired images.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) THAT DEPICT SPRING.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Ice, Ice, Baby

With Utah’s winter taking on a life of its own this year, I thought it was time to pull out a cool, icy image for this week’s challenge. Of course, ice doesn’t just mean cold, frozen water. Have a lot of fun this week seeing what you can find for ice, ice, baby.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS FEATURING ICE.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Fresh

With the new year, I thought we should start fresh: fresh challenges, fresh images, fresh flowers (hey, I’m deep in winter here). I’m not sure who designated January 1 as the beginning of the new year, but tradition is strong, so each January 1 many people make the commitment to make this year better than the last. 2016 was actually a very good year for the Merrill Family, so my hope is that 2017 is just as good or a little better. A lot better would make too many people envious of us (wink wink).

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS FEATURING FRESHNESS.

A Photo a Week Challenge: White

For the northern hemisphere, this time of year usually bring the flurry, white stuff flowing (or sometimes pelting) from the heavens. Here in Utah, we love to see the mountains snow-capped and looking festive for the holidays. They also mean live-giving water for the coming spring and summer months.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS FEATURING THE COLOR WHITE.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Leaves

Whether your hemisphere is moving into fall or spring, leaves are a sign of the seasons for October and November. These little guys were having fun playing in all of the leaves at the park where I was taking their family fall photos, though I’m not sure Mom was all that happy about Baby S eating a pine cone.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS OF THAT FEATURE LEAVES.
