Winter Photo Contest Entry

The wonderful Karen Maxwell from Write from Karen is hosting another of her fabulous seasonal photo contests.  This time around it is winter (given she’s in the Northern Hemisphere). She writes:

Show us your favorite winter photograph! But wait, it doesn’t HAVE to be a winter photograph. It can something that represents winter to you in your part of the world. Be creative, be fun – the more original the photo, the better chance you’ll have of winning!

While it seems crazy to be thinking of cold or snow at this time of year in the Southern Hemisphere, I am not deterred.  I have gone back through my photos to find my favourite Winter photo to date.

Every year we travel to the Bunya Mountains to get the ‘cold’ experience, either in late Autumn or sometime in Winter. We snuggle up infront of the wood fire, spend what is usually crisp clear days bushwalking, birdwatching and enjoying coats, scarves, gloves and beanies.

This photo is of my son, Dylan, a few years ago, who without complaint went and sat in the dry, scratchy grass on our favourite knoll where we watch the sunset. We were a bit early this day so we got to fool around with some photos first.
