May 2013 Photo Contest - Winners

Since April showers bring May flowers, this month's themes will be Flowers & Travels Abroad:

Theme: FLOWERS & Travels Abroad (picked by Notso_fastLane)
The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try to make the image a recent one.

For the Travels Abroad theme, Notso_fastLane has requested that if you pick the Travels Abroad theme, it should preferably be taken in a country the person wasn't born in.

Maybe try Notso_fastlane ... he might be happy with flowers as the theme (I certainly am), but ...

1. Flower Theme

Autumn Rose




This photo of the Autumn Rose could also qualify as "Travels Abroad" ... it was taken in my front yard here in Australia.

Since I wasn't born in the U.S. this could fit both themes

Joshua tree/Joshua Tree National Park

2. Travels Abroad

As requested ... taken in a country I wasn't born in ...


Mont Blanc, France




However, the photo of the Autumn Rose could also qualify as "Travels Abroad" ... it was taken in my front yard here in Australia.

So a question now ... would you like us to post a photo for each theme? Or just one photo for the theme of our choice?

We've done the 2-theme thing in the past and have posted a photo for each theme.

You can do both. However, to keep it fair if you do post two, only one of the pictures can be voted on.

Some very very stunning photos here, I'm amazed.
