Winter - Virtual Meet-up

Winter.....even though it feels like it right now, it's doesn't officially start until December 21.

Is there a season that displays such extremes?......it is cold, wet, freezing & icy... and it is cozy, dry, warm & toasty. It is colourful, festive & happy....and it is grey, gloomy and dreary.....


This virtual meet-up should inspire you to pull on the boots, parkas and gloves, grab your camera, and get out there and snap away......there are loads of things to photograph and you can start doing so now.....the holiday season in the city has officially begun and the city has a buzz....there are parades, festivals, social gatherings and events...and even though it hasn't officially started Jack Frost is already painting us a Winter Wonderland......

You can RSVP to participate until December 8...the album will appear and you can then share 10 of your best winter images.....don't forget to fill in the caption where you took the photo. 

Maybe this virtual meet-up will provide you with some therapeutic relief from all the chaos in the early part of the season or encourage you to get off the couch and get outside in the latter half.....just have fun and enjoy the experience of all things winter!

    Hi Kelly,

    I had already my share done and winter is still here. It is OK if I will delete some of my postings and replace them with other pictures?

    Thank you,

      If you want to just this once, okay....that is the trick to the virtual meet-ups, you need to pace yourself...

    Meetup was still active so threw some pictures up from my first attempt to chase birds. Verdict: difficult!

      Merry Christmas, Kelly :)

      Question for you before I post some photos: do the photos have to be taken between a specific time frame?

      December 25, 2013

    • Kelly

      Thanks! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas...the photos could have been taken anytime after November 25 and right on through the winter...

  • Bob

    I tried to get in on this but for some techie reason I obviously didn't, I suppose it's too late now?

    December 13, 2013

    • Kelly

      Hi Bob, I just added you......go ahead and upload some photos

      December 13, 2013

  • Nancy

    Hey Kelly,

    Considering that winter has not even arrived I do hope we have a bit of time to post pics. I've not had an opportunity to get out and take some shots just yet.

    December 11, 2013

    • Kelly

      Yes Nancy...you can upload the pictures all winter long....it looks like a closed met-up because i had to use a date to close off RSVP's

      2 · December 11, 2013

    • Carol

      Thanks for clarifying Kelly. The "closed meet-up" had me thinking there was deadline.

      December 12, 2013

  • Doug G.

    Very good. some excellent shots

    December 11, 2013

  • Carol

    Kelly, can we still post pictures? I took some pictures yesterday with snow fall.

    December 11, 2013

    • Kelly

      Of course Carol....the album is up indefinitely...

    Awesome works!

    December 10, 2013

  • Werner M.

    Lotta great pics here! But a lot of them just don't say "winter". (Unless the photog is trying to say "bet you'd never guess this is winter in Canada". I guess that qualifies it as a winter pic after all, then, eh?)

    December 9, 2013

  • Kelly

    Just a reminder...there is a limit of 10 pictures each for this Virtual meet-up

    1 · December 9, 2013

  • Kelly

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's interpretation of winter...some beautiful images have been shared already

    December 8, 2013

  • Paul D.

    a good topic for this "fall"

    December 8, 2013

    • Kelly

      yup...the calendar says fall, but the thermometer says winter....you never know....maybe this past week will be the only "Winter" we get here in Lotusland.......OR NOT!

      1 · December 8, 2013

    • Patricia J.

      I HOPE this is the only 'winter' we get :-)

    How do you like it so far, Anne?

    December 6, 2013

    • Anne L.

      LOL Much beautiful, grand, well planned and greener version of my home town. Wish I hadn't stay in the east coast that long.

      December 6, 2013

  • Anne L.

    My first winter in the west coast! Excited!!!

    December 6, 2013

  • Garry J.

    Can't wait to get started.
