Spring Blue Skies and Flowers - 2012-2013 ONLY, NO macros

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

As the title says – let’s see some Spring images, containing:

  1. blue skies and flowers (and whatever else you catch)
  2. NO macros, unless it’s low angle, grass-level, and you catch some skies as well (and whatever else)
  1. Must have Date in Description, and
  2. Must be 2012 or 2013

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!
