Announcing the theme for our February photo contest - and asking for participation

The theme was chosen by the winner of January's contest, Xolodno and it is

HERE IS A LINK to a bit more information about it

Please consider going through your photos and finding one you want to enter.

*****Theme for the February Contest*****NATIONAL AND STATE PARKS

The winner of the January contest named the theme, and here are Xolodno's words:

I'm a huge fan of National and State Parks, so lets run with that theme. I won't participate as I have thousands of photos of them, but will be anxious to see what anyone else has, perhaps even inspire me to visit one I haven't been to yet.

Xolodno, according to our new rules cannot participate because he/she named the theme.
But I can - according to those very same new rules.

There is no question in my mind that most of us, if not all, have to go to our archives. Trips are not exactly advisable at the moment.
I'm excited about the theme, we will get to pretend we are out in the vast beauty of America.

So for now, let's get our search for photos going. I will start the submissions on

Feb. 8 and run them until the 16th or until 30 photos have been entered

I will start the preliminaries on the 19th and run them for three days

The finals will start on the 22nd and run three days
Winners will be announced on the 25th and then we can celebrate them for the rest of the short month.

I will post a notice of the theme and a link to this in GD and in the Lounge.

As I suspect all of us will somehow go down memory lanes of visits to our wonderful parks, I hope you enjoy the journey and find a photo you want to share.

For now the only stipulation for your entry is to ready it no larger than 1024 pixels in its longest dimension and under 675K in file size.

Democracy has prevailed

With immense pride

Was Sir Walter Scott prescient?

“High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung.”

Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet FRSE FSA Scot (15 August 1771 – 21 September 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, poet, playwright, and historian. Many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and Scottish literature. Famous titles include The Lady of the Lake (narrative poem) and the novels Waverley, Old Mortality (or The Tale of Old Mortality), Rob Roy, The Heart of Mid-Lothian, The Bride of Lammermoor, and Ivanho
