    February 2012: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    February 2012: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    New month should mean a new challenge, right?

    For the simplicity of remembering, these competitions will run till the last day of each month, and thereafter be open for voting for a total of 14 days.

    Deadline for entries to be added: February 29th 2012.

    We kindly ask you not to just throw in any random image, but instead put some thought into it, and place only your very best shot(s) within the theme.

    February 2012 THEME: ....

    (since the past month was letter I, this month would be something with J):

    The theme for the month of February has been selected to be "January".


    ***

    We repeat the usual 4 standard rules of engagement:

    1/ A maximum of 3 entries per user, within this months theme.

    2/ Number your images consequently starting at FEB-001, then FEB-002 and so on (we kindly ask you to please make sure you enter the correct number as it makes it so much easier for me at month's end... )

    3/ Find an appropriate but short title for your image (makes it easier to remember when we are going to cast a vote).

    4/ The image must naturally be taken be yourself.

    Competition closes on February 29th!

    Need some inspiration? Make an online search via sites such as for example google, photobucket or/and flickr to see if you can find any tips!

    .... and yes, off course, GOOD LUCK to all participants!

            OK - here are my attempts for this month. As ever, not brilliant - but made by my own fair hand!!

            FEB-004: Going nowhere for New Year



            This is Dundas, on the remaining little section of the Somerset Coal Canal - joining the Kennet and Avon just a little further down. Most of these boats are privately owned, and will spend their winter moored at Dundas before adopting a rather more nomadic lifestyle during the summer. Since this bit of the canal doesn't go anywhere, it often freezes - as in the photo. The sign says 'Dead Slow through Moorings'!

            FEB-005: Jetting away for January



            Ross-on-Wye is a small market town in rural Herefordshire in the west of England. St Mary's Church - over 900 years old - sits proudly at the top of the hill overlooking the Wye Valley. All is usually silent - apart from the planes flying from Europe to the USA - generally going as a gaggle eastbound in the morning, westbound in the afternoon!! This one was in the right place at the right time on an impossibly blue-sky'ed winter's day.

                              Great!
                              So my particpation to the contest, with pictures taken from my Hurtigruten trip in January 2011.

                              The first one was taken in the very first minutes of January 1st, an incredible display of fireworks for the New Year in Svolvaer

                              FEB-013 : Happy New Year



                              The second one, a few days later, I think it was in the Trondheimfjord, I was amazed at the colors in the snow.

                              FEB-014 : White and blue



                              And the last one, arriving near Bergen on a snowy day, everything was black and white except a few spots of color given by the houses/boat sheds

                              FEB-015 : Boat sheds in the snow
