March Photo Contest

For March, I've decided to go with the subject of... Thresholds: photos prominently featuring doors, doorways, gates, etc, whether opened or closed.


The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try making it an image from the last year.

Voting:
- Vote for your top 3
- No voting for yourself

And if you are the winner one month ... you're in charge the month after the next. For example ... if you win in January, you're in charge of March. If you win in April, you're in charge of June.
You pick the theme, you count the votes, you announce the new winner.

Second and third most votes = Honorable Mentions

Yep, it's a nice part of the world… we were camped at Threadbo Diggings as well, for a few days then we moved on to Jindabyne for a short while before heading to Long Plain Hut.

This was in November last year, during the G20 which we were avoiding like the plague.

That's that then. There were some striking entries in this lot, I'm guessing now we put our votes in?

This one was particularly striking with the atmosphere and the contrast of the stonework. By the looks of things, @cuda2k does a lot of this professionally.

Again, quite striking and moody.

This has a real rustic feel to it. I'm not sure if the "1317" is simply a street number or the year the building was erected.
