POTN G-series Speed Challenge # 623: Seasons

Description of this week topic:

Not all "Seasons" are defined by the four seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. In the U.S. over the weekend, we had a Girl Scout stop by the house to sell cookies and my wife proclaimed that it was "Girl Scout cookie season". So show me your "season" whether it's fishing season, sweater season, rainy season, or whatever it might be. Simply title your entry ___________ (fill in the blank) Season, but cannot use Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter.

Remember, if you post a photo, you may be the winner. Be prepared to host and judge a new challenge.

To submit, click the button labeled 'POST TO THREAD' and put your Photo Title in the first line of the post, above your photo.
Don't forget your Camera Model.

Post until Monday noon GMT, 6 February 2017

Congrats to OhLook (made me laugh) and Mark. Thanks for 3rd, Cory. Our mountains have been in desperate need for snowpack and officially we are at 175% of normal. I couldn't pass up the chance to take up both cameras during a snowfall & take advantage of the scenery.

Thanks, Cory, and congratulations to Maureen and Mark. That chair just about invited me to take its picture. It sits in front of a blighted house that stands out for its poor condition. All the houses nearby are in much better shape. My photo seems tilted. However, the camera was level. The house was not.

The new challenge is up.

The title, the photo "pruning season" stills makes me smile.

Thanks for your comments, Cory, Maureen, and Mark. It's obviously weeding season, too.
