REPOSTED: Here they Are....the October 2011 Free Photo Contest Entries: theme: The Epitomy of Autumn!!

Found one additional entry on my computer after I posted this the first time...
my new laptop and my other computer (for some reason)
had it shifted to my "junk mail" email box....
it certainly is NOT junk mail!)

So, if you already read this post,
re-read it and look at the first entry. It has been added.
Not to worry, though, nothing has been sent to the judges yet...
not until after Friday.
My apologies to Linda from my computer who slid her entry into the wrong mailbox.
From now on, I will check both the regular emails and the junk mail emails to make sure I don't miss another one in this manner. 

Once again, I will start out this blogpost with the warning that if I forget
to list
ANYONE's photo that they entered into the contest below....
PLEASE get ahold of me asap....I will wait until Friday to send them off to the judges to pick a winner...
so make sure if you entered your photo and do not see it below, to contact me right away!

That being said...

you guys rock!

You did it again.

Fantastic entries this month.

My hat goes off to you all.

So  let's begin.

This month's theme was: "The Epitomy of Autumn".

Think warm flannel shirts and nightgowns, and campfires, and the sweet smell of autumn.

Think golds and reds and woods and mist.....

and sit back and breathe in the epitomy of autumn right now:

This one is from Linda R. Her blog is called: "Linda's Letters".

This one is from Sharon W.  Her blog is called: "Sharon's Paws Create".
This one is from Terlee7. She is starting a new blog soon.
This one is from Arti. Her blog is called: "My Yatra Diary".
This is from Sara. Her blog is called: "Greyt Days".
This one is from Amy B. Her blog is called: "Amy's Camping Chronicles".
This is from Kim, USA.  Her blog is called: "My Photography in Focus".

This one is from Muffy.  Her blog is called: "Muffy's Marks".

This is from Judy W. She has two blogs. One is called: "The Road to Here", and the other one is called: "Through Squirrel Eyes".

This one is from Far Side. Her blog is called: "Far Side of Fifty".

This one is from DJan. Her blog is called: "DJan-ity".

This is from Nat. Her blog is called: "Just Nat".

Didn't I tell you they were all great??

I can't even pick my top three favorites as I like them all so much.

The Judges have their work cut out for them, for sure.


And now???

The theme for November, 2011

"Cats and Dogs"

Oh yes.....
go out there and humiliate your little dogs and cats with any pose you think will help you win....just don't have the Humane Society call ME....LOL 

If you don't own a cat or dog to snap a photo of, borrow your neighbor's or cousin's dog or cat...

You don't have to dress them up in anything...but you can if you want....

you can take them doing anything except going to the bathroom or mating.....
as long as you do not endanger them or hurt them in anyway. (Well, except maybe for their pride)

So go for it...
We can't wait to see your photos!

Send me your photo no later than midnight on Nov. 30, 2011.

Brilliant autumn photographs... and difficult to pick a favourite. I did like Muffy's picture though.

Country Gal said...

Oh fantstic photos.
Papa and I belong to a photography club in our community it is called Photographers of the Otter Valley ! See our village that is in a valley has a river called the Otter river around and through it and thats why we picked the name. We do all kinds of photo challenges each month. We are planing to print a large book of our clubs photos with info of each photo. Have a wonderful day

These pictures remind me why autumn is my favorite season! Love them all, but I have to go with Nat's!

TexWisGirl said...

Grandmother Mary said...

I like Muffy's and DJan's best.

Rita said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I wouldn't want to be a judge. ;)

Sharon Wagner said...

Delightful mix. But cats and dogs will be a tough one. Because I have zillions of photos of my little loved ones.

Pamela Kieffer said...

What a beautiful group of fall photos. I hope I look as lovely in my last days.

diane b said...

Lovely Autumn pics. Sad I couldn't compete as it is spring and we don't have autumn colours. Sadly too I don't have a dog or a cat but I will try to borrow one.

CrazyCris said...

Beautiful collection of autumnal colours! I really miss that in my corner of Spain... none of our trees go through that variation of pigments... This was like stepping into another colourful world! :o)

So. Cal. Gal said...

I'm soooo glad I didn't enter this time. Anything I have wouldn't have even compared (the downside of living in So. Cal. I guess).

But I do have a cat! ; )

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh wow, another stunning batch of entries. Everyone really captured autumn at it's best.

No dogs here but I am surrounded by cats.

Hilary said...

All beauties for sure but I especially love Arti's.

Nancy/BLissed-Out Grandma said...

They are lovely. The ones from Muffy, DJan, and Nat took my breath away. Each has a different strength.
