POTN G-Series Speed Challenge #670 – Cold

It's quite cold here this week. Highs in the teens and lows in the single digits. So my choice for a theme is just that...COLD. I'm open to any interpretation of that word. And I just realized the last contest I ran was during Thanksgiving week. Now here I am again over Christmas week. Let's hope we get more participation for this round. It's also the last round of the year, so make it a good one.

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, 1 January 2018.

Winners

1st - Maureen - Love the colors and the juxtaposition of the ice and a flower that belongs to warmer times.

2nd - Teekay - Again, colors stand out here as does the pattern of the gaggle. I have dozens of hungry Cardinals and Blue Jays and Chickadees in my backyard right now. They do like to feast to stay warm.

3rd - Cory/Stiga - Just couldn't decide between these two shots, so we'll cal it a tie. Both images send a chill through my bones. Very cold looking scenery.

Well done all. Glad to see more participation this round. All yours, Maureen.

Congratulations, Maureen, and thanks for the #2 spot, M_Six.

No shortage of "cold" subjects this year for most of us, so all were good shivery entries that I'm glad I didn't have to judge.
