Shelter From The Storm

This challenge closed about 6 years ago.

The Challenge

Storms. Some are violent, appearing suddenly, filled with sound and fury, departing as suddenly as they arrived. Others are ominous and distant, faintly seen and heard. If we have lived, we have lived through storms in our lives. Nature’s storms. Life’s storms. And when they come we seek shelter. Shelter from these storms. We may huddle in our homes, insulated from the howling winds and sheets of rain pounding against the window glass. Grateful and safe. Life’s storms may drive us into the arms of a loved one, or the sanctuary of a church. We may find comfort in the eyes of our children, the reassuring touch of our loved ones. Each of us finds our own unique shelter. This challenge encourages you to share an image of the shelter you seek OR hope for when these storms come.

You may choose to think of nature’s storms, as I do, or you may prefer to imagine one of life’s storms. The only requirement is that the image you enter depict your vision of the shelter – not the storm itself (Unlike the image which appears here and which was selected for mere convenience and expediency). We encourage you to be as creative as you wish, and in so doing to re-visit, even for a moment, the warmth and comfort you experience whilst sheltering from the storm.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for your favorite! Whichever image resonates most closely with those feelings you experience when you bask in the comforting glow of shelter from the storm. OR pay off old debts and vote for your bud O_O. Seriously, vote for whatever image floats your boat! Use whatever criteria you deem appropriate BUT VOTE
